Free Comic Book Day 2013

Comic book conventions, venues ensure seeing Selina Kyle!


After an absence of two years, your Webmaster made his appearance at Free Comic Book Day in New York's Capital District. It was a rather tiring trip, as I worked late the night before.

The drive was OK, but traffic on Central Avenue in Albany was dense, and seeing dark-coloured signals in the city was not something I liked. And on that day, one of the two I-87 bridges spanning the Mohawk River was closed for repair, delaying my trip to Saratoga Springs.

Overall, it was a decent time. I got to spend decent time at Earthworld Comics, meeting wonderful people. I was a little under the weather, though, so I did not meet some others as I should have. And in Saratoga Springs, I caught up with Benjy Greenberg, who was dressed up as The Riddler, and Jennifer Wicks, who played a female version of Doctor Who.

And I topped the night off with a viewing of Iron Man 3 at the IMAX theatre at Crossgates Mall in Albany.

My Batman costume was already in transition, as I had acquired pleather pants. They worked well, despite the warm temperatures. My chest armour was another matter entirely, because it would fall apart from time to time.

Still, I got a chance to pose with Supergirl on Central Avenue in Albany.
