June 15-17, 2012, brought the Mile High city the inaugural title=”Denver Comic Con”>Denver Comic Con. Nerds, geeks, dweebs, dorks, Trekkies, heroes, fans and artists of all shapes and sizes descended on the Denver Convention Center for three days of total geek-out.
A couple months ago Kate mentioned that Denver was going to have its own Comic Con. I was skeptical, I admit. How could anything out here, much as I love Denver, compare to the real deal in San Diego?
Well, she wanted to go. In fact, she wanted to get VIP passes for the whole weekend. She reminded me several times, and I was still a bit skeptical.
But I was willing. I can always have a good time looking through the stuff in the vendor hall, checking out the costumes (admit it, you count the Slave Leia costumes, too), and generally wallowing in the enveloping geekerie.
So of course we went, but only on Saturday. We did spend the whole day, though. And what can I say but: Kate was right!
Next year I’m itching for the VIP passes and, who knows, I might even wear a comic-related T-shirt.
