Re: [Groop]Chicago Report!

Hi Gang,

Chicagocon was huge.  I only went ther on sunday afternoon and realized that
there was way too much going on there to only spend one afternoon there.  I
took us about 3 hours just to walk the entire floor area once.

I saw some friends of mine there who were promoting their new comic called
"Legends of Tarot" who I hadn't seen in a while.

Had the chance to briefly speak with some celebrities who I never thought I'd
actually meet.  Of course, as mentioned earlier Lou Ferigno was there.  Also,
several actors from Star Wars were there including Darth Vader, Chewbacca, an
Admiral, as well as a few others.  I did not get the chance to meet with Stan
Sakai.  Also, I can't say that I saw Sergio there either. I heard a rumor that
he sometimes attends comic conventions incognito?

I picked up a few comics as well as a Nosferatu figure there.

Next year, I will definitely have to go there for the entire weekend.  I wasn't
quite sure what to expect since this my first major convention.

All the best,
