It's been a few years since I've been to a comic book convention. My first time experience was at the one in 2009 of february. It was a weird but exciting experience; witnessing grown adults cosplaying their favorite characters from TV show, movies or comic books, buying comics I'd never thought existed, and for the first time met Comic book writer and Illustrator George Perez. I didn't know too much of his work at the time but it was a dream come true to actually meet a guy that does comic cooks. Afterwards I saw the premiere of the 2009 animated film Wonder Woman. I remembered how long the line was and had to wait a half hour before getting inside the theater and when we did we had to wait even longer before the guys that worked on the film can and talked for so long that anything they said was nonsense to me. After watching the film, I went home, saying my goodbyes to my friends, looking back on the great things I've experienced and hoped to return one day.
The second time was in october of 2010 at the pier, while not as awesome like before I still had my fun here and there. Did saw an hot steamy Babe with a awesome looking Black Cat costume, not oh no, her boyfriend just happened to be there with her (sob). Can't remember if I went for the third time at comic con or some other convention in NYC but I did manage to go to a show at the ItsJustSomeRandomGuy that premiered of Marvel/DC season 2 After hours. Meeting Random Guy was a blasted, he was pretty tall and had every fan and nerd around him. I left when he and a group of people went back to a hotel he was staying. Afterwards, My affection for conventions began to fade, looking at all conventions from a bigger picture, they were all pretty much the same thing. I had no interest to waste more money and there wasn't anyone I wanted to meet at the showing, so with my friends going after their careers and having a job and school to be concerned about, I stopped going altogether.
Now here it is again, but this time it's for me to get away from all the crap that's been happening to me lately in my life and just to have a good time with my bro's I haven't talked to in a while. I don't except to be amazed by things I've already know and seen or meet anyone special weather it's writers or actors there, and (NO I WON'T DO COSPLAY BECAUSE IT'S STILL WEIRD TO ME) but if it's just to experience that awesome feeling again and see how great it is to see how much of a community we've become in the world of all media, then it was well worth the wait.
