Animinitime & panels

I was planning for a glorious evening of scanning, but my computer froze and I had to do a hard shut down, and now my scanner seems to be furbared. SIGH. I will leave it for the night and hope it's better tomorrow. Please? D:

Here are some things:

The second panel kills me every time I look at it. I know it's stupid to laugh at your own jokes, but eyes turning into little dots cracks me up.

A panel from my Girl Comics 6-pager, which'll be out May 19th, so pick up a copy. Yes, it is a superhero comic about superheroes making snacks. And then there are explosions or something. Coloured by the lovely and talented Cris Peter. Zee colours, they are so pretty... @_@ I'm really happy with the work she did. It was really incredible.


Animinitime, Halifax's very first anime/manga convention was this past Sunday, and I had a great time taking part. Even when the G8 Protesters showed up and there were REAL guys with guns wandering around in the hotel lobby along with Solid Snake and various Keybladed Kingdom Heart-ers. That was ... weird.
A couple of my cosplay favourites:

This picture doesn't do this Zelda justice. She was SO pretty.

Want the hat.

My most epic adventure of the day happened when I spotted a copy of Fumi Yoshinaga's All My Darling Daughters in Strange Adventures' half-price manga box... and this cosplayer was flipping through it, very deliberately. I stood right behind her and stared, willing her to return it to the box. I wanted that manga. It was half-price! The cosplayer kept flipping, stopping to read a page here and there. I made horrible faces at Sandy (Cal, SA's owner's wife) who was standing behind the display table, indicating my desperation for the book. I MUST HAVE IT FOR HALF PRICE. The cosplayer kept flipping. I stared daggers, asking her with MY MIND to return the book to the box. Slowly, she started to lower it back in the box. I snatched the book, squealing. Startled, the cosplayer edged away, looking worried, but I was victorious.

Here's what else I got:

All those books for $19! Woot.

My panel was also a lot of fun. It's quite entertaining when you have the cast of Kingdom Hearts watching your powerpoint presentation about comics. Thanks to everyone who came out. I'm sure I'll be back whenever they have the show again.

Comments

I've heard the Planetes manga is quite good! (The anime is EXCELLENT, if you haven't seen it already <3 )
Ooh, didn't know there was an anime. I haven't read the manga, but I keep hearing it's brilliant, and out of print. Found these vols in a pile of discards. $4/each!
*wants to know if 'The Big O' makes more sense as a manga as the anime made very little sense and carried very little continuity*
Probably not, considering the manga's based on the anime. Anyway, it was $1.
Re: comic panels at the top -- I also like that, in addition to the eyes going to dots, his hair also went limp. That guy is toast.

Sounds like so much fun! I like that you used you mental mind powers of psychicness to get the book. I would have DIED had I been there.
That panel from Girl Comics looks awesome! I hope I can pick up a copy. Superheros making snacks is right up my alley.
Yay! Planetes! One of my all-time fave mangas! (Hope you have all the other ones, too, it really needs to be read as an entirety...)
Sadly, I only have these vols, and the rest seems out of print...
If you do try to collect the rest of Planetes (because it is SO worth reading!), just be careful-- There's volumes 1 2 3 4a 4b. I missed "volume 4 part I" the first time by accident and was *so* lost.
superheroes making snacks = v.awesome concept. i would enjoy that.
Since you said the X-girls got taken first I am wondering if that is Crystal from the Imortals. I am not sure how many other red heads are major players in the Marvel Universe. I have fallen out of touch with them since the mid 90's during the great Darkness of the Overused Gimmiks.
If Marvel gives you another crack at one of their titles you should see about doing something for Runaways. I think that series fits you rather well. If they carry the collections at your library you should check it out and see what you think.

The comic shop I go to tends to do a sidewalk sale every once in awhile where they may put graphic novels and manga on sale for less then a dollar. If I can get to the next on I can see if there is any manga or books that might interest you.

I second the runaways motion. Or any of the NYX characters (kiden, tatiana, felon etc)
