This past weekend was the first Alamo City ComicCon, San Antonio’s largest Comic Book and Pop Culture Convention yet, and it was HUGE. A good friend of mine, Julieann Chassey, had invited me to be a celebrity handler, taking money, keeping tally of autographs, and helping the guests get to and from their convention booths.
Babysit celebrities? How could I say no?!
I’d done this kind of thing before, working as a handler for the Shrine Con in Los Angeles back when I was 17, had the chance to work security for the likes of Christian Bale (pre-Batman) and Stan Lee. It was a 17-year-old’s dream. I had no idea what was in store for me this weekend, and I’m thrilled to say it was a once in a lifetime moment, a thirty six hour sleepless moment, but hey, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
