#FBF - Seattle Comicard Show 2002

    My ‪#‎FBF‬ story- back in the day we used to go to the Seattle Comicard Show at Seattle Center. There was a particular show that Joe Staton- one of my favorite artists- was going to be at. It was snowing hard on Snoqualmie Pass and I wanted to turn back a few times, but I was darned if I was going to miss meeting Mr. Staton. We got to the show and went inside. Trembling with excitement, I brought over my well loved copies of All Star Comics and Wonder Woman for Mr. Staton to ...sign. I think he didn't know what to think- he asked me if I had bought the books out of a quarter bin. I honestly can't remember what I said exactly, but I was absolutely thrilled and gushed about how much I loved his renderings of Huntress and Power Girl, and he was very gracious about the whole situation. I had him do this sketch of Huntress, and to this day it remains one of the most treasured pieces in my collection. I miss those days of simple comic book shows, and the opportunity for the one-on-one time that it held. In 2002, comic book shows did not look like they do today!!
