I’ve been dreading doing a massive con-report ever since I returned from C2E2 in Chicago. Why? Because so much awesome crap happened! Luckily I waited so long that someone else did all the heavy lifting for me. Fellow webcomicer and hotel roommate to the stars (or just me), Tom Brazelton did a very thorough job of summing up the best (or at least most notable) parts of the weekend. I was with or near him most of the time so you can just assume that we had roughly the same experiences.
Since Tom did all the grunt work, I will simply help paint a clearer picture of the weekend’s event with a few photos and videos.
[Me and my boothmate Gordon from Multiplex]
[Matt, Chris and Rob from Cyanide and Happiness. I spent most of the weekend with these guys. Let me say that tuxedos do not do them justice. They are gentlemen and scholars each. Also, I owe Chris a great debt for introducing me to the concept of “Yeti Murphy.”]
[Alina was across the isle and one booth over so I spent less time staring at her. Sorry, Alina. I will affix my manic gaze at you at a future con.]
VIDEOS [You can’t see anything but the audio is good]:
- LINK – Me doing “Mr. Roboto”
- LINK – Dave from Dead Winter doing “Fuel” (yes that’s me chiming in in the middle). It’s a real shame I didn’t get any of him doing Megadeth.
- LINK – Abby, Spike and Kel doing “Barbie Girl”
[After karaoke, Spike was kind enough to invite us to her home for an little after party. Here she is comforting her slightly (entirely) neurotic dog. He felt like a velvet penis.]
[I was glad that I got a chance to meet and hang out with Zach from SMBC. He wears shorts and sandals in 40 degree Chicago weather as if to damn the gods. I like this guy.]
[One of David‘s readers brought him a real KFC Doubledown. David died 23 minutes later. Rest in peace sweet prince of action figures.]
