Shadowcat phases to #2

Shadowcat phases to #2

Shadowcat and Lockheed

I spent most of the weekend at Comic Con trying to get this pic of Shadowcat.

Shadowcat and Wolverine

As I was getting my pic of Shadowcat, this Wolverine came along and asked if I could get a pic of him and Shadowcat on his camera. (Make that two for one, bub.)

I was upset that first day at Comic Con. I was in line waiting to get my pass (and I had been waiting for quite a while as it was) and there right in front of me, be too far ahead to do anything about was a girl dressed like Shadowcat with a stuffed purple dragon on her shoulder. I couldn’t believe it. I was tempted to push through the crowd, but I knew there was no point in doing that. I knew I just had to be patient and hope I would find her later on during the weekend.

Fortunately, I did find her on Saturday, and was able to ask for a picture. (Remember it is polite to ask first unless there is a group doing a picture and you’re not sure you can recreate the shot, but at that point there are tons of people taking pics anyway.)

Not only did I get my photo of Shadowcat, I also timed it just right to have the guy dressed up as Wolverine ask if I could take a picture of the two of them for him. (I certainly did, but not until I’d gotten one for myself.)

What is Denver Comic Con all about?

Denver Comic Con isn’t just about holding a Comic Con. There is so much more behind it. DCC is the proud face of the Comic Books Classroom, an organization that works to promote literacy with the use of comic books in the classroom. This group recognizes the appeal of comic books to both boys and girls of various ages, and want to use that interest in comic books to increase their reading ability. It is still a local effort, but it is growing.
