So, what is your all-time favorite comic? I have a love for 50s era schlock films and comics including a special nostalgia for the pinup era. Two of my favorites meld together for the famed “Tor Loves Betty” comic series featuring wrestler/Ed Wood movie actor Tor Johnson with queen of the pinups Betty Page. I have a very good friend who cosplays Sailor Moon.
What’s your favorite comic book?
How about comic-book inspired movies and television? I’ve been watching “The Walking Dead” since the day it first aired, although I haven’t read the comic series it’s based on.
From the world of Marvel to zombies, the twisted visions of filmmakers David Lynch and Tim Burton to Disney, there will be plenty for comic con fans to get excited about this year. This event is fun for all ages, too. It’s a great kick to bring the kids out to see their enthusiasm for some of their favorite characters.
