Megacon: The Meganing

Well I've just returned from SCAD's trip to Megacon and boy are my arms tired! Infact, so are my legs and neck is sort of cramped too.

Anywho, despite the fact that my day was 60% Bus Ride and 40% Convention Browsing I had a damned good time. And I almost felt a bit more accomplished than I usually do when exiting a con. Maybe because I actually purchased objects relavent to my major!
Speaking of purchases, here's my exciting list of Con Swag:
-SuperF*ckers #1 by James Kolchalka
-Gun Show #1-3 by K.C. Green
-9 issues of Deadpool
-1 issue of Exiles
-1 Kirby standee figurine
-2 Autographed Drawings depicting Brian's 8-Bit Theatre dudes for my roomies
-Free Owly (With Autograph by Andy Runton)
-Be A Man by Jeffery Brown

I say that I felt accomplished because I ran across a familiar face, K.C. Green who does this great comic Horribleville (in my links section), and I patronized him by purchasing 3 of his Mini-comics, and giving him my own Mini-Comic Uneventful Goings-on (which is kinda crappy since it has some of my freshman work in it). Not only did he seem to enjoy it but also the guy who runs the website K.C. gets his hosting, and even seemed somewhat interested in having me as an artist. That was a huge ego boost! I even gave them

Otherwise the con was quite hum-drum but I did make sure to buy up as much Deadpool as I could see, since I've fallen in love with the lovable little freak as of late. Also I watched a bunch o LARPers beat the crap out of eachother with foam bats in the funniest of ways.
Megacon Mega Con Rating?: B- Would have been cooler if I had brought a portfolio.
