Nerd Herd (and I'm among them)
a storm trooper hits on sailor moon
I attended the NY Comic Convention this past weekend and it was fun. I'm not a big fan of mainstream comics (can't remember the last Marvel or DC title I bought) but there was a nice cross section of the big boys and the lil ones. The folks at Reed Exhibitions which run many shows for the Javits Center clearly underestimated the fanboy turnout and chaos reigned for a while and many a would-be wizard or cleric were turned away.
There weren't too many "Trekkie" moments but I did see (1) A Clooney-era Batman (2) A Robot made of Corrugated Cardboard (3) many Stormtroopers (4) Captain Marvel (5) various manga boyz n girlz and (6) Boba Fett. Thankfully, I only dropped about 20 bucks. I resisted many a "starved puppy" look from exhibiting writers, artists and publishers. Hey folks, I been there myself but money's too tight to mention...
