Wow. What a weekend and What. A. Con!!!

I know where you're coming from Terence in relation to some "features" that were implemented that really made the con so much more enjoyable and user friendly than we've seen in the past

I'm glad you guys approved of having the comic guests ready to go at the tables BEFORE doors were opened to the public, I think that should be the standard not the the novelty heading forward kinda proud of that one

The double sized walkways, separate levels for comic and tv/movie celebs (and token/photo booths) and other features were inspired, and really allowed for a happy and enjoyable environment for all involved!

On a personal note, still recovering from the Aussie and International guests dinner, which went into the wee hours of the night and led to the restaurant being closed up around us! Phil Jimenez , Nicola Scott and Jon Sommariva were the life of the table, and we all had such a blast I had to pinch myself that I was sharing stories, jokes and memories with these guys who I'm proud to call friends! Tom Raney and his wife Gina, Freddie Williams and his wife Kiki, and of course the star that is David Yardin all made it such a great night for us and the US guests have all promised to return at some point which as I'm sure all you guys who got one of the virtual truckload of art they cranked out will attest, will be amazing!

Blame my missus. She keeps insisting that finishing the baby's nursery is more important than me sitting at the computer posting comic art. Can you believe that? Sheesh.
