Golden Apple Comics from Los Angeles hosted a signing for Michael McMillian’s second issue of his Comic “Lucid” on Saturday 10/30/10. There were quite a few True Blood fans present at the booth in the Long Beach Comic Con. Michael who portrays Reverend Steve Newlin on True Blood was very appreciative of the fans who came to get his new comic. He also signed True Blood items. I had the pleasure of meeting him at a signing for the first issue of his Lucid comic. He remembered us! The images in the gallery below were taken at the convention. The new issue #2 will be available this month but fans were able to purchase them during the convention.
Also met one of the actress-Jennifer Wenger from True Blood-she was in episode 3 from season 2 “Scratches”. She appeared in the hot tub scene with Tara and Eggs! (she was dressed as Wonder Woman for the Con)
Of course whenever I attend any events that are Comic related I have to bring my son and his friend who are huge comic fans! On Sunday we were all excited to see Stan Lee. My son got to meet him at San Diego Comic Con but did not get a chance to have one of his comics autographed by Mr. Lee. Luckily that changed for him this weekend.
However one of the big highlights for this Con was for my son and that was the Stan Lee signing event. The lines were long as can be expected for Stan. My son patiently waited for Mr. Lee to sign his two Spider Man comics. (photo above shows Stan signing his two comics) Mr. Lee enjoyed seeing a young fan with some of his older comics. My son had saved up his allowance in order to buy the issues. One of them was issue #12 and the other was issue #100.
The autograph was also witnessed by CGC and the signed comics were sent off for grading so my son only had a few minutes with the signed comics. The Con was a lot of fun for all the fans young and old. Looking forward to next year.
