Oh man. So much went on at Comic-Con 2012, we had to use our lightsaber and split the blog into two parts.
After our first day, Son and I came away with lots of awesome stuff . . .
Of course, we had to go back for more, plus everyone wanted their photo taken with BatPeep . . .
It wasn't all fun and games. Well, okay, it was!
We were on the Heroes for the Middle Grade Reader (And You, Too!) panel . . .
Some of our fellow panelist included, Tony DiTerlizzi with Emily Janice Card looking on and wondering if now would be a good time to pull out his chair, agent-turned-author Nathan Bransford (does he represent himself, I wonder?), and Cornelia Funke . . .
We sat next to Brandon Mull on the panel, and during the book signing we were next to panel moderator, author Michael Spradlin . . .
We took this museum quality photo while the audience was filtering in and then listening as the panel did a group song about heroes. (Or not.)
Here's what the audience saw. (Thanks to Ken Min for the photos.)
See that totally cool bag that E.J. Altbacker is holding?
Well, even though I loved it . . . I GAVE MY BAG TO HIM!!!!
Because I am nice and because he is a writer for the Green Lantern: The Animated Series didn't have one of the bags.
Oh, look! It's David Saylor, VP/Creative Director/Fashion Model of Scholastic Book Group (one of those is not true, yet) and Scholastic Senior Publicist Sheila Marie Everett . . .
Ouch but true fact: Years ago, Sheila Marie and I met at ALA in New Orleans. She was new to Scholastic and one of her first assignments was to accompany me to an event to make sure I got there safely. So what did I do?
I FELL OUT OF A TAXI!!! (I am known to be a klutz.) Yes, I opened a cab door, and fell out onto the ground. Sheila Marie was horrified and recalled thinking that she would have to tell her boss, "I broke my author."
Oops. Back to the future. Look at what we got!
Thanks, Comic-Con -- we had a great time!!!
