So much cool stuff we got from our weekend at Emerald City ComiCon. Aside from the celebrities we got to meet, we also got to meet the guys from Crank Left. As I was walking by their booth, I happened to notice the name “Jack Burton”. Being that I was a bit high from my Con-buzz, it didn’t hit me immediately. Then it did. I stopped. “Is this Jack Burton of ‘Big Trouble in Little China’?” I asked. “It certainly is!” was the reply.
These guys have started “Jack Burton Adventures”. Basically the story starts from after the end of the movie. They had the first three comics available. Normally they were $5 each, but if I bought all three, they were only $4 each. SCORE! They were also holding a raffle in which you could win some of their other comics. Done. The guys were all REALLY nice and happy to come across another fan.
I went and found Elle and showed her the comics I bought. She went back that night and bought a couple of the t-shirts they had available (not pictured) and also signed up for the raffle. Because they liked us so much, they GAVE us a signed Lo Pan sketch that the artist had done!
That night Elle got an e-mail. SHE WON THE RAFFLE!!! So, on Saturday, we went back and got the rest of their comics. Super stoked!
Also picked up all the CDs from Paul & Storm and got them signed. Additional signings:
Too much cool stuff.
Let me tell you, Misha Collins is a super sweet dude. We spent the first part of the morning in his panel (which was truly awesome and hilarious) followed up with his photo op. My daughter, as soon as we got into the photo place started sobbing. Misha was so gracious. He told her that it was okay and gave her a big hug. He then looked at my boy and told him how awesome he looked. Afterwards we went up to his signing area. He signed a Castiel picture for my daughter and the inside lapel of my son’s trench coat(above). He was even going to leave an outgoing message on my daughter’s voice mail, but she couldn’t get it to work. :-(
Misha definitely seems like the kind of guy you’d want to hang out and have a drink with.
