Eek! I really don't want to make excuses about why I haven't been writing, but I have two pretty epic excuses:
2) Emerald City Comicon - I volunteer at ECCC every year and it's always a blast. Unfortunately, though, it leaves me quite drained for a week or so afterwards (add in my March allergies and I'm out for the month haha). Example: I hardly even made it to the gym last week and I normally go every day. This year, I was Paul McGillion's (Stargate Atlantis) assistant. He was really nice and treated all of his fans incredibly well - even his creepy stalker-fans. After he left for his flight home, there were a few hours of the con left and I managed to get Saga #1 signed by Fiona Staples (I'm absolutely wild about her art) and Captain Marvel #5 signed by Kelly Sue Deconnick (my fan letter was printed in that issue)! Overall I think my favorite part of the convention was getting a hug from Richard Steven Horvits (the voice of Invader Zim) and listening to him yell "I am ZIM!"
I didn't get to see many costumes while I was at the convention, but here are a few favorites I found in the KOMO recap:
