|Stacey and Rob|
Once again, I went to the comic-con as the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan). This was Stacey's first ever comic-con and she was really excited to join me. We met Tom R. at the comic-con (he's a big comic book fan like me and he and I have been going to this for years together).
Meeting some of the writers and artists is something a comics fan appreciates.
|Dan Parent and Rob|
One was Dan Parent.
Dan Parent is an American comic book artist and writer best known for his work for Archie Comics. WHY I RESPECT HIM: In 2012 Parent introduced the first openly gay character in Archie Comics when he created Kevin Keller
in Veronica #202, which he wrote and drew. In May 2013 Parent was presented with the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comic Book in San Francisco. Parent was nominated for a 2013 Harvey Award for Special Award for Humor in Comics.
