A family themed picnic garden sprawled out in front of the Hilton. It had a DJ booth, 30 ft tall inflatable super heroes, photo op backdrops, and space for tired adult and little comic fans to rest, eat, watch, listen and just enjoy breezes from the bay.
I continued on over the suspension bridge. A parking lot full of events and booths stretched out towards the Metro Clock Tower. And yes . . . people were beginning to cross the bridge. I stood on the bridge and took a few snaps before the lot filled.
For the last few weeks, I have been preparing for a panelist/presenter position with the next upcoming San Diego comic event in October of this year: Comic Fest http://www.sdcomicfest.org/ . I even received a contact email with one of now defunct Milestone Comics previous writers, Ivan Velez and have begun correspondence as part of my research.http://www.planetbronx.com/
Guess what Notesongsters? I walked right into an ICON character enactor!!!! We talked for several minutes (couldn't believe it was happening). Then, a Milestone fan from back in the day and his wife stopped to chat too!
Looking for Dakota,
