The New York Comic Con… The one thing I can say is WOW!!! What an event, between 50 to 70,000 people on Sunday alone!!! I was literally in awe to be blunt. I arrived at around 10:30am and I began my signing at about 11ish in the FX International booth. I would be spending my off time from the main celebrity autographing area with them and rotating with a few of my friends.

At about 12:25pm I started getting shipped over to the official celebrity signing area of the NY Comic Con where I would have the honor and privilege of signing beside Comic Book Legend Jim Lee, Amber Benson (Tara of Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Peter “Chewbacca” Mayhew and Lou Ferrigno to name a few! I swung by the Turnbuckle Promotions booth to see a few friends that were signing over there like Fury (American Gladiators), Bushwhacker Luke, Jackie Haas, & Kevin Thorn.

It was an awesome turnout!!! I enjoyed meeting with the fans and I actually did three interviews back to back for a few different radio and television shows. It was great to see the Loud Idiots in the house especially since I JUST did a first time interview with them a couple weeks ago.

Another of the interviews I did was with Kim who I had the pleasure of meeting when I did the Big Apple Con… she rocks a mean Elecktra outfit people!!!

During another interview I was surprisingly rushed by Cheryl Bachman and Darra “Like Dat” Boyd who came over to say hello before heading back to the FX International booth. It was hilarious… I think they ran for cover after I began taking a pop hip-hop quiz!!!

As 2:30pm approached I spent a little time chatting with my panel mates before heading back to the regular booth. Meeting Jim Lee was VERY cool considering I have been a fan of his work for many years. I have always loved his rendition of my favorite Marvel Comics character, “The Beast.”

It was a pleasure to meet the very sweet Amber Benson who played Tara on one of my all time favorite shows, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” I hope to be able to catch up with her again soon.

Of course the day would NOT have been complete without spending a little time with the one and only Incredible Hulk… Lou Ferrigno himself…

I headed back to the FX Booth to sign again and I was greeted by Web TV Deluxe to do another interview. I was joined by my dear Claire Unabia (America’s Next Top Model) & Like Dat (VH1’s Flavor of Love & Charm School).

As we did the interview, another good friend of mine Dan Nelson (Anthrax) popped in to say hello shortly after followed by Taimak Guarriello… YES… Bruce Leroy of The Last Dragon!!!

It was chaos… we created a media frenzy as a ton of press took video and photos of us all together!

As the event wrapped up, I spent a little time with C.C. Banana who I met backstage at the PNC for Poison.

Before leaving I made sure to stop over to see Fury who we missed the whole day… I also finally had a little time to talk to former WCW valet Midajah.

I had a GREAT time with GREAT friends… I look forward to doing this again in the near future! I also want to send out a personal hug and thank you to my agent Kim who did an amazing job with all of us this weekend!
