For your entertainment…

It’s been a busy few weeks for The Nerdy Bird. Big Apple Comic Con, car accident, Wonder Woman Day…

Ok, don’t worry. I’m obviously alive. My car on the other hand, isn’t doing so well. On the bright side, the whole thing made for a hilarious story once I was done crying. Long story short, I got into an accident on the WAY to Wonder Woman Day. You know, in traffic, on my way…dressed in my Lady Flash costume. Comments from five fellas (including the police) and a ride in the back seat of a cop car (for safety) later I sufficiently felt like a hooker. But it’s ok, at least it was all for a good cause.

After all was said and done I made it to Wonder Woman Day at Comic Fusion in Flemington, NJ with about ten minutes to spare until the end of the event. The always lovely Amber the Superhero Stylist had been holding down the fort all weekend at the shop and introduced me to the legendary Joe Sinnott who had been sketching all day for fans. Check out a picture of myself, Joe and Amber and read her recap of the weekend at the Girls Entertainment Network.
I put bids in on two of auctions and wound up taking them both home. This one by Michael Dolce and this one by Bob Prodor. I was amazed to walk away with a signed Jack Kirby print that I won in the raffle. In total, the NJ event raised over $5,000 for the domestic violence shelter SAFE in Hunterdon! So, I guess it wasn’t too bad a day at all. :)

Aaron Douglas (Chief Tyrol from Battlestar Galactica) He’s read my blog!! :)
The previous weekend I attended my first ever Big Apple Con, now the Big Apple Comic Con or just BACC for short. My full report should be going up at Comic Book Resources this weekend and I’ll link to it here when it’s up but in the meantime, here are a few photos to wet your appetite.

In case you were wondering, the Batmobile is not handicapped accessible. Bruce, we need to talk.

The real power of the DCU.

Adrianne Curry was super awesome! She told me she has a Rorschach fetish.

Three wheels. The only way to ride.

The studs of Archaia Comics: Mel Caylo, Stephen Christy and Mark Smylie.

No caption I could come up with would make this any better.

The Iceman Cometh. I captured his epic freestyle rap with Deathstroke on film.

    You were looked awesome at BACC and congrats on winning first prize at the costume contest. Thanks for the (winning pose) picture( posted on myspace;)

    Wish I could say the same about BACC. It has a lot of issues and I'm not going get into it now, but it's safe to say I'm not returning next year. Why? check the 2010 dates of both BACC and NYCC. Shamus is a d-bag plain and simple.

    Sorry to hear about the car, but at least it suffered for a good cause.
