How do I recount to you the awesomeness of meeting comic book writers/artists when I was at ALA a few weeks ago? With great difficulty, apparently!
When I went to ALA, I stumbled across the creators of Grayson (Tom King and Tim Seeley) signing at the Penguin Random House booth (across from the Random House kids section). While I was hovering around that area, I heard that the writers/artists of Batgirl and Gotham Academy were gonna sign afterwards. You bet your ass I was gonna stick around. Why? Because of Brenden Fletcher, who writes the recent Batgirl, Gotham Academy, and Black Canary. (If you read my June recap, I recently fell in love with Black Canary, where I talked about it and my adventures of obtaining the poster over there.)
When I got up to Brenden and Cameron Stewart, I sung praises for Black Canary (how I’m in love with it + Annie Wu’s amazing art work), and Brenden’s face absolutely lit up. I didn’t get to go into specifics of my love because there were people behind me, but since he was going to be around ALA, I decided to save it for later.
(I totally forgot to take pictures when I was waiting in line. Whoops.)
