Comic Con



Leo is presently getting photographed with some superhero actor.

I am lying on the floor, resting gently as a group of Spiderman climb up some metal girders nearby.
Its been a nice day.
I met Leo at St Pancreas and we took the tube across town.
I have never been surrounded by so many geeks since I was doing my film degree
We had lunch in a rather nice sushi place near Olympia then continued the geek fest 



It was lovely to see him again, he was my family and
I had missed him dreadfully

  2. Sweet.
    Please explain how you could lie on the floor amidst a crowd. I'm having trouble making sense of my picture of it. How did you not get stepped on or at least tripped over? Wasn't the floor dirty from all the shoes that must've passed over it? Did they have a special roped-off area for those who choose to lie on the floor?

  8. It looks great, cool that you are open to connecting with Leo by experiencing his interests.

    Pls explain lying on the floor! Why? How? Were you not stepped on or tripped over? Were you unwell, I know London visits hit you hard?

  12. It looks like you had a wonderful time and Leo makes a great Flash! I understand you lying on the floor. Comic Con is like that isn't it? The times I went I didn't lie on the floor but I did sit on it. Did you see any of the panels? I'm sure you made the day all the better for Leo!

  13. It looks like Leo has thoroughly enjoyed himself John-but it has made me laugh because it does sound a bit crazy weird-Seems to me this is one of many happy surreal adventures yourself and Leo shall have together xx

  37. In New World, if players find something difficult, buying New World Coins at IGGM is a smarter way.

  39. They are not geeks! Comicon has become mainstream. You are showing your age :). Next year I expect to see a costume!

    1. In my vocabulary geek is not a negative xx

    2. I should have realized that from your love for The Walking Dead. Still expect a costume. I want to go to the big Comicon in California one year.

  40. Next year you could always just go as Bradley Walsh's character in Dr Who ... .he gets away with it ;-)

    It looks like you had a great if slightly surreal day out together. You look like father and son ... and I'm sure lots of folks thought you were.
