Just got back from Wizard World Chicago Comicon.
I’m beat. The damn flight was over 2 hours late. The plane arrived on time but the replacement pilots showed up 2 hours late. Doesn’t make sense.
Here’s my quick impression of the 2009 Wizard World Chicago Comicon:
Very uneven and hot.
When I say hot. I mean hot. It was over 95 degrees with almost 100% humidity. I’m talking Africa hot. And on Saturday, the busiest day, most of the AC in the convention hall wasn’t working. Every fanboys were making their own gravy. Not a pretty sight or smell.
However I had a wonderful time meeting all my peeps from the message board. Great big shout out to Dave Colombo, Dave Morris, The Fred, Zeus Monkey, Mez, Batusi, and many others. You, fellas, made this Chicago show a fun one despite all the screw-ups by the convention and heat wave.
Welp. I just wanted to give you guys a quick update for now. I’ll have a semi-full report later in the week.
But for now, I’m going crank up my AC, go to bed and dream of zaftig women.
