I think someone forgot to hit the shift key on this issue when they put it to print. It should read “Invincible!!!” This was by far the craziest, most game-changing issue to date! Robert Kirkland keeps throwing twists at Mark (Grayson) forcing him to adapt throughout the issue. Mr. Kirkland’ character building level is over 9,000!!!

Image Expo -- Day Three

[See also: Part ONE & Part TWO – Ed.]

The day was upon us! The last day of Image Expo! I was so pumped! I just knew today was going to be great. We get down to the hall and are almost immediately let in. But before we would go in, I would ask that the people at the ticket booth take a picture of my family with John Huyler. John was the man that we met when we got there. He was actually working at the convention. He saw our family and our kids reminded him of his.

John Huyler

We started to talk and the guy was just really nice about everything. The guy was so nice and just a pleasure to be around so we had to get a picture with him.

My Image Expo Experience---Day One

[Check out Parts TWO & THREE! – Ed.]

Image Expo. The most glorious convention EVER! Todd McFarlane!! Eric Larsen!!! Mark Silvestri!!! Rob Liefeld!!(?) Whilce Portacio!! Jim Valentino!! Robert Kirkman!!! And even more?!?! YES!! The ULTIMATE convention came and left a huge void to be filled. More on that later.

I remember the day I found out there would be an Image Expo. It was a few weeks after finding out that WonderCon would not be held in San Francisco this year. It made my day. I started to remember all the times I had visited the Image booth at WonderCon and, looking back, it’s the only place I KEPT going back to. Weird enough, I had only been collecting four Image titles at that time (Haunt, Elephantmen, The Walking Dead and Invincible). Regardless of not knowing too much about what was going on in Image, I decided I would pay the $300 ($150 apiece) for the MVP passes for me and my wife*.

Months went by. I wanted the convention to happen already! I would check the website (http://www.imagecomicexpo.com/ ) every day. I would get more and more excited when they’d update the site with new exclusives! After months of preparing for the convention (in mind, body and soul), it was finally upon me! I was on my way to Oakland! Continue reading “My Image Expo Experience—Day One”
