Here'a a Comic Con memory

Here'a a Comic Con memory from a few years ago.

While standing in line to get my bag-o-crap for buying a ticket, I spotted a few familiar faces setting up tables in the autograph area they set up near the ticket line.

The ones I saw were Tim Thomerson (Jack Deth baby), Sam J Jones, Marc Singer (Beastmaster) and Virgil (WWF). They had a really dejected look about them and it made me sad that these heroes were left to set up tables outside the main area.

Although my all-time favorite encounter was Vernon Wells (Commando, Road Warrior) at Frank & Sons, next to Todd Bridges. It was surreal. Almost as odd as John Carpenter and Bruce Campbell at E3 about six years ago, neither knew who the other one was.

Living in Los Angeles means celebrity sightings are somewhat common, but you rarely see somebody you like, and these guys are right up there.

The most important one was seeing Ray Bradbury a few years ago at SDCC, just walking the exhibit floor, it was like seeing royalty.
