The day got off to a surreal start as I dragged my hungover ass back to the Javits Center and the first thing I encountered was an accordion-playing Boba Fett doing a great rendition of Henry Mancini's Pink Panther theme.
There's just something I love about cardboard robots with lights and tubing for limbs. It's just so...pure. Unless it's Sex Robot from THE WHITEST KIDS U KNOW. (special thanks to Gilsonic for the indent)
Amanda Conner sketches for her fans. Note the size of the line; that went on unabated for hours.
I love the incongruous grouping on this one: Maleficent, Olive Oyl, and Bluto. It's like the con was a four-day rift in space and time that allowed all fictional universes tourist access to our reality.
I'm fascinated by just how popular cosplaying from THE FIFTH ELEMENT has become in recent years. Extra points for black Leeloo!
A gaggle of Asgardian babe-itude: (L-R) Loki, the Enchantress, movie Loki, Loki, and Thor (kneeling).
The best of the show's many Ms. Marvels, another character I'm surprised to see cosplayed with considerable frequency.
The most excellent Simon Fraser, co-creator and artist of the last truly great long-running 2000 A.D. strip, NIKOLAI DANTE.
NOTE: It was around this time when I decided against covering any more panels because the leg I injured while tripping over a power cord the previous day made walking rather painful, so I pretty much stuck by A.C.'s booth for the remainder of the day.
Edward Douglas, a friend since my high school days whom I often encounter at cons. Good to see him again!
Model/Actress Zoe La Bella poses with the A.C.-drawn book cover that features her likeness and, er, cartoon "enhancements."
And the moment the Power Girl piece was done, it was time for a media interview. Ah, popularity...
Note the white highlights around the Canary's gloves so the viewer can clearly see the black gloves as separate from the equally black suit.
On the way back to the real world. Though completely exhausted, I always get a bit wistful at the end of this con...
While on the way out I encountered SOUTH PARK's resident supers: (L-R) The Coon, Mysterion, and Professor Chaos.
