To do this weekend in NYC:
There's a shit-ton of comics-related events going on this weekend.Fri-Sat-Sun
The headliner is the Big Apple Con
, which boasts such highlights as: Adam West, Val Kilmer, the entire cast of the Warriors and Aaron Douglas from BSG. Oh, and comics persons too: Both John Romitas, Bernie Wrightson, Travis Charest and a bunch more. I'm sure there will also be at least 2 former pro wrestlers and 5 female adult entertainers*.
I wasn't going to go, but after typing all this I might reconsider. $15, though.
* and by "entertainers" I mean porn stars**
** and by "porn stars" I mean people dressed in next-to-nothing, which 1) makes it very awkward to walk past them at the show 2) makes it even more awkward because there's a crowd gawkingSat
My personal recommendation is the Saturday Morning Cartoons exhibit at MoCCA,
which opens on...Saturday.
I have to admit that I'm biased here because seven cels I own are going to be in the show. From which shows? Well, you'll have to wait for the video report, won't you?Sat
Gabrielle Bell's release party at Rocketship.
Let me just say something. I love Rocketship. Alex and Mary are tops and incredibly nice to boot. (sidenote: I moved jobs in July and so my previous LCS, Midtown Comics, was no longer convenient. Now I'm forced to go to Cosmic Comics, which is painful. I know, I know - Midtown is huge and they don't *need* my support like Cosmic does. But I don't care. For most of the times I've gone, the people that work at Cosmic were assholes).
Which brings me back to my point. Alex and Mary are not assholes. You should go to the Gabrielle Bell show, even if I'm not. (sorry).
