Chicago Comic-Con 2009 Has Gone Bye-Bye

Well another Chicago Comic-Con has come and gone along with a lot of good times and some very speedy and sweet smelling events. As seen on another blog we had our speed dating event which seemed to go very well chased by a few libations here and there as seen in the following photo a few brave fellows showed up for maybe a nice girl and possibly wedding bells.

Now we also had George (The Sketching Machine) Perez at the booth and other than stopping to have a bite to eat and drink we couldn't hardly get him to leave the table

Of course George couldn't do it all by himself (even though he did try) but there were a few other guest appearances by artists at the table such as Skottie Young, Chris Samnee, Matt Wagner, Mark Texeira, J.S. Campbell, Bill Rheinhold and Gene Ha all made time to drop by and help out.

Now a special thanks goes out to my wonderful volunteers that really stepped up and made this all happen this because without all of these guys like Mike Fleming taking care of the lottery selling all of those tickets and Wendi, David, Arne, Benjamin, Cullen (Who was actually working on getting married soon) and then there was also Jim and Frank and they all volunteered and worked extremely hard to make it all come together and my thanks to all. Also a special thanks to our fearless leader Jim McLauchlin whom was always not to far away cracking a mean whip.
OOPS! sorry that was the booth next to us.
This is what it's all about helping out and raising money to aid the people that started the business that helps us have these really great weekends. Trust me I would rather be doing this than cleaning out my garage.
Well kudos to everyone on a great and successful weekend for the Hero Initiative.
So I will hopefully see everyone again next year.

It can't truly work, I think this way.
