Pics from Steel City Con (August 8 thru 10) and where I hit up LeVar Burton for a grant...

I actually took a picture of LeVar Burton at the Steel City con held last week from August 8th thru August 10th over in Monroeville but it was a terrible picture so I'm going with this. You might also know Mr. Burton from this:

But as I read the depressing news coming out of Ferguson, Missouri I have to admit I'm reminded of his iconic role in Roots. Wondering if times have changed all that much...

Since his fantastic success with his Reading Rainbow Kickstarter I hit em up for my modest Kickstarter like campaign to create a dedicated review of African American fiction, kinda like Shadow and Act but dedicated to Walter Mosley and Steven Barnes and other writers of color. I don't think I'll get that grant but I'll keep trying. That campaign is here.

Here are some other pics from the show. Here's a pretty plus size black girl I worked with. I took one picture and altered it in two different ways

And I tried another version that made it look more like comics. Her shirt says, from memory I think: "Wish I was Batman but I can't fight and I'm broke."

Here's a picture of the crowd:

And here's a picture of the Batmobile because I Am Fanboy.

And more from the crowd: 

A very impressive Predator. I just thought he looked better in blue.

More crowd. Probably the best pic I took. I blame the camera.

I just couldn't get this shot right. So I tried two versions.

And there's this version.

I had a very negative experience with Manisha T Patel, and her company. She was highly rude, and also tried to cheat me by quoting an unrealistic price.

DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE! They are scammers and cheaters and do not deserve any business.
