Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there, including Magnum and my own dear old dad. I actually haven't called my dad yet today, as he's not a fan of Hallmark Holidays. But he seems to like it when I call, so I'll probably rebel.
As a special gift to Magnum, we took a weekend getaway.
Well, actually no. We were going away for this weekend anyway because it was Denver Comic Con weekend! Welcome to Nerdtopia!
It was a little iffy since Chaco was gimping around on his bad ankle. Recall that he rolled it post-Incline a couple of weeks ago. Just as the ankle was getting back to normal, Chaco and some coworkers were returning from lunch and dashing through a parking lot, dodging a rainstorm. He planted his foot in some mulch and... back to square one.
But, he'd had a few days to rest it, and he was willing and able to take one for Comic Con. Once we entered the convention center and made plans for our rendezvous, Chaco and Wolfgang ditched the parents. Meego was happy to keep us company however.
As expected, there was a good crowd. Last year, I think the popularity of the event overwhelmed the staff, so this year, they seemed well-prepared for the masses. Check-in and moving around went pretty smoothly all things considered.
|Bender! And his little sand person?|
|Lego Batman was very popular.|
I was checking out his abs.
So a good time was had by all. There were several geek celebrities there, but that wasn't my focus. I enjoy the people-watching, the cosplay, and the Artist Alley. There is some impressive artwork there, but I never buy any of it. What would I do with a watercolor of Wolverine or Daryl Dixon? Nevermind...
So a big thanks to the people of Denver Comic Con - workers and attendees alike. Nice bunch for a geek weekend.
Same time next year? Hopefully so, unless the veloci-rapture occurs...
