Out of Office AutoReply: Dragon*Con At Last!

Assuming all is well with air travel, I should be in Atlanta this morning!!! Me and 30,000 of my closest friends all weekend long! Dragon*Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the US.  It’s the 6th largest convention in the city of Atlanta, has over 500 guests (actors, authors, artists, bands, etc),  and offers over 2,750 hours of panels, seminars, demonstrations, and workshops. Check out the DragonCon website for details on the event!

Below are a few snapshots from Dragon*Con 2008.  I typically take about 400 pictures each event.  While these aren’t really the best quality shots, they do give you an idea of some the diverse things going on.

Shag and Captain America.  Check out my t-shirt.  Eat that, Steve Rogers!

Shag and Iron Man.  Again with the t-shirt backing up Tony Stark’s Civil War position.

You never know who you’ll run into at Dragon*Con.  Race and Serv with Axl Rose.  … yeah, right.

Talk with you sometime next week.  Assuming I recover.   :)

    I’m pretty sure San Diego Comic Con is actually the largest multi-media/pop culture/Sci-Fi/comic/fantasy/art/gaming/film convention in the US…or anywhere for that matter, with over 130,000 attendees…But I’m still jealous you get to be at Dragon Con with Torchwood’s Gareth and James. =D
