Arrived home late last night from Dallas and I have to say that the Expo attendees and staff were pleasant and polite, special shout-out to Misty Harris who was delightful. 

On a personal level, at one of JB's panels I received a round of applause for getting kicked in the head by Captain America (see below) which was a new experience for me.
(Paul and I in the first panel, me getting kicked in the head in the 2nd)

Talking to Steve Gumm and other forum members was a real treat, All in all, I had a great time.

Awesome picture with William Shatner!  

And congrats on getting kicked in the head by Captain America, Cory - we should all be so lucky!

This was that convention where I was on a panel where William Shatner and I
talked about Star Trek, and then I flew home talking with Mia Farrow.

...I don't remember everything else that happened, but I'm pretty sure I played
a song with the Rolling Stones and beat Bobby Fischer in a game of chess.
Totes normal weekend!

I'm really glad this sort of stuff happens to the guy who wrote and drew (and
Photoshopped) all those comics I love so much!

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed getting the signatures and the panel you did Friday. I got eight books signed, but the one I most wanted was this Man of Steel trade that was a contest giveaway when Superman and Action Comics was relaunched. I got Dick Giordano's signature many years ago when he came to a Dallas con, and now I have JB's

One thing I found odd at the con was a booth offering autograph “authentication”. Based on the mutation of my own autograph over the years, and even with the passage of time at a con, I have trouble imagining how such a thing is even possible. My autograph from thirty years ago is noticeably different from my autograph today, as an autograph from morning of day one is different from afternoon of day three.

The con was well run, and JB's Saturday panel was great fun.  The 15-year-old me would not believe it if someone had told him that one day you're going to meet the guy who draws X-Men/ Avengers/ Fantastic Four and William Shatner -- and they would sign a giant hardcover Star Trek book for you.  So cool.  Thanks for attending the show, JB.

That guy still has a strong connection to the kid he used to be, and sometimes finds it nearly impossible to link his life now to his life then.

Cory getting kicked in the head by Captain America and JB sitting next to Mia Farrow somehow made me think of Dean Martin and his reply when he was told Frank Sinatra was going to marry Ms. Farrow: "I've got scotch older than Mia Farrow!"

Wish I could have been at the con, sounds like it was pretty special.

Hi JB!  Just wanted to say how much I appreciate you attending the Dallas Fan Expo.  I know how little fun travel is, so it means a lot that you made the trip.

I've been reading your books since Fantastic Four 233.  I lived in Ohio until a few years ago, and was lucky to visit you at several Mid-Ohio cons.  For a long time it seemed like that would be that last time I'd get to meet you, so this was a really pleasant surprise. I'm a long-time lurker on your columns, but active participation just isn't my thing.

The Q&A sessions were laid back and a lot of fun.  I was the big guy that sat in the second row in the first Q&A and the front row in the second Q&A.

I'm super excited about Elsewhen, in whatever form in ultimately takes.

As long as you keep putting stuff out, I'll keep reading it.

A big shout out to Chris Ryall as well, who did a great job facilitating the Q&A and is just a genuinely nice guy.

(Knowing Mia Farrow has taken all the challenge out of playing Six Degrees of Separation. She knows EVERYBODY!)

Just remembered I forgot to post that promised photo from the grassy knoll on Dealy Plaza. Here t'is.....

Too hard to see at this resolution, I expect, but just to the left of the jogger in the foreground is a white X painted on the road, indicating where Kennedy was when Oswald's first shot struck. There is a second X a few yards to the right, off camera.
