ASBURY PARK COMICON 2014!
If you’ve never had the chance to meet him in person, now is the time! I had the pleasure of getting a ratty old copy of Nick Fury #1 (1969) signed at Mike Carbo’s New York Comic Book Marketplace last year. Getting his signature wasn’t really my aim though. I had heard he could be talkative and I really wanted to hear some stories. Man did I! Mr Steranko is one of those rare individuals who not only loves what he does, he loves to talk about it. I waited on-line to meet him and when it was my turn stuck out my hand and said something like “thank you, I’ve been a huge fan of Nick Fury all my life, he was who I wanted to be when I grew up”. He smiled and began regaling me with tales of how Nick came to be and the time a certain General said the same thing to him. He is truly a treat to hear speak and I hope I get the chance again to stand at his table and hear the stories, the histories of this business we all love.
Get to Asbury, it’s gonna be a great show!
