Anya and Stella take Wondercon!

There is that surreal moment when Kelly Sue Deconnick recognizes your daughter from Tumblr and calls her and her sister to the front of the line to take a photo — but I’m ahead of myself.

We decided to take the girls to Wondercon for spring break this year. We haven’t gone since it left San Francisco, but as the girls’ fandom has grown we thought they would enjoy a “real” con.

As they walked the floor, they got a lot of nice complements on their costumes. Carol Corps members in particular sought out Stella and got their pictures taken with her, proving once again that they are the best fans in fandom.

We were in line to get some of our Captain Marvel / Pretty Deadly books signed when Kelly Sue spotted Stella and recognized her from her photos on the Internet. Stella ran over and gave her a high five. Kelly Sue gave both the girls Carol Corps dog tags and came around the table to take a photo with them.

In all she was every bit as cool and nice in person as she had appeared to be in print and on the Internet. The girls were super happy and I was so glad that I was able to share with them some of the best of what the comic book community has to offer. 

Thanks to everyone who politely asked to take my girls’ photos and also to those who stopped to allow the girls to take their photo.

They had a wonderful time, and as a result, so did I.

You done good, Mom and Dad!  They’re awesome girls and I am SO GLAD they had a positive introduction to the comics community.

Forgotten masterpiece: Complete original art for “The Shell Game” by Al Williamson (pencils) and Angelo Torres (inks) from Piracy #2, published by EC Comics, December 1954.

Breath taxingly gorgeous.

Who's the better character, sentry or superman?

One of the best movies of the 80s. If the Russo Bros. had a pair between them, they’d ditch Cap 3 and reboot this instead. Needs to be redone with love instead of an overly restrained budget.

You've got one Tumblr post to sell me one comic book you're writing. Go!

I fear that this may have been a real cover.

The Deviants take Manhattan!
Eternals #4, October 1976 Jack Kirby

Not great Kirby, but I just really like it. Great design, mostly. Even money says an average artist, were they to use a design like this, would flop it. That’s more correct, I’d say. But this way works better.
Love the inks too. At the time, Royer and Sinnott were my favorites. I’d add to that Everett and Klein and, of course, Colletta on Thor and Shores on Cap.

Behold my Awesome Con homage to Kelly Sue Deconnick. 

This is my favorite thing that has ever happened. Ever. Ever ever.

Oh my god, seriously?! This is amazing. I’m so glad you don’t think I’m a weirdo. 

It is hilarious, and I adore you.

(Also I think we might be the same height.)

We didn’t have cosplay when I was a youth. And we certainly didn’t have cosplay of comics pros. (Although going as B.O. Schwartz harassing and molesting young women may have potential. But probably not.)

Spoiler: The KSD cosplayer failed to wear a nose ring.

I can be as piggish and misogynistic as the next guy.
But this Wonder Girl design is so wrong in so many ways.
If you need more explanation: There’s this and this.
And the young woman superhero who’s wildly successful right now looks like this:

But DiDio/Johns/Lee: experts in imbecility, necrophilia and pointless over-rendering, respectively.

I’ve only been there once, sometime about eight months ago, but they only had two employees and I believe the one I talked to was either the manager or the owner (or possibly both.) I’ve been to some wonderful comic shops, some where the owners were just using comics to pad their gaming or trading…
