Things got started right with the opening bell with The Hobbit: Book versus Movie panel. People do love their hobbits. The panel discussion was lively and turns out I’m the only one who liked the movie better than the books (I loved The Hobbit, but it’s a kids book and I liked the more adult themes brought out int he movie).
I followed this up with the Comics: Then and Now panel. Both the audience and my other panel partners were incredibly knowledgeable about every aspects of comics. I did my best to hang with them and learned I have a lot to learn.
And of course there was no shortage of Cos Players. Look for my “Anatomy of a FandomFest Book Signing” in the next day or so.
