Dragon*Con, for the uninitiated, is a massive science-fiction and pop culture convention held in Atlanta, Georgia every year.
This is my second year attending as roving photojournalist for The Comic Book Nerd.
Having my photo taken with Stan Lee was a dream come true for me! The photo op experience is a very swift one. You stand in a long, curvy line, and when you’re finally near the star, you have about five seconds with them. Stan is warm and incredibly friendly. I thanked him for showing, and for having created so many characters that I love!
How I would love to have lunch with him and listen to his stories.
What I love most about him is that he’s still going strong in his 80′s!
Developing and promoting new projects all the time. Retirement doesn’t look like it’s any nearer for the Ol’ Generalissimo!
Meeting Sylvester McCoy (aka the 7th Doctor) was also a tremendous thrill!
With Paul Charles (as Beast Boy) who writes The Gay Comic Geek Blog. He matched my pants!
Members of The Mighty Marvel Marching Society!
I love capturing people mid-pose. Also, check out the Beast costume! That had to be warm inside.
A few crowd shots. Keep in mind, this is just the crowd inside ONE of five hotels. They were all packed!
This can be a little hellish if you’re claustrophobic.
The crowd shots were taken mid-day Saturday. It had been even more crowded earlier in the day.
Batman and Hush throw down!
Enormously tall Darkseid. Very menacing.
A plethora of suited up DC fans…
I hear wedding bells for Green Lantern and Black Canary!
GL and Star Sapphire!
Solomon Grundy was literally head and shoulders above the rest of the crowd.
The Justice League!
The Red Lanterns don’t look too happy. Then again, i wouldn’t be too happy if I were in full costume and make up in 90+ weather.
Spidey and Mary Jane were ahead of me in line to meet Stan Lee.
The Force is strong with these two.
By Odin’s beard, it’s Thor!
The Teen Titans!!!!!
Wonder Woman (my friend Donna) doesn’t look too happy with the lady in the lab coat!
