Motor City Comic Con ’07

Saturday a friend and I drove up to Novi, Michigan for the spring Motor City Comic Con. This is always my favorite convention of the year. A there seemed to be more media guests than ever this year.
Disclaimer: I’m wearing heels in these photos, making me about 6’2″ at least. Some of the actors aren’t quite as short as they appear.

Robin Curtis, who played Lt. Saavik in the Star Trek movies 3 & 4 as well as a couple episodes of Star Trek: TNG, was the first guest we stopped and talked to. She was incredibly sweet and fun. We talked at length about dating and relationships. She acted as if we had known each other for years!
Here she is, looking as great as ever:

Favorite Blood Suckers

Today’s Thursday Thirteen will be my 13 favorite Vampires from the big and small screens:


1. Bela Lugosi’s Dracula – Of course, the most famous blood sucker. He set the par. Often misquoted, he never actually said, “I vant to suck your blood.”
Memorable Quote: To die, to be really dead, that must be glorious!


2. Henry Fitzroy (from Blood Ties) – Fast becoming one of my favorite new shows. Henry, the 450-year-old vampire and illegitimate son of Henry VIII, is a artist for graphic novels and helps Vicki out with her supernatural cases.
Memorable Quote:
Henry: Where are you going?
Vicki: Husband hunting.
Henry: (indicating himself) Husband material.
Vicki: You’re sweet, but you’re just not a morning person.


3 & 4. Angel & Spike (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) – Had to include the two most drooled-over vampires on tv. Of course, this Whedon tv adaptation from a movie that bombed ended up being a cult hit.
Memorable Quotes:
Angel: Don’t worry. I’m not here to eat.
Spike: Angel’s as dull as a table lamp, and we have much different coloring.

Chuck Clips

This one is my favorite set of clips…
A comedy about a college-age IT employee (he works for “The Nerd Herd,” a mobile tech support company), who mistakenly has a wealth of government secrets downloaded into his brain and becomes an secret agent overnight.

Here are two video clips on the upcoming show premiering this fall:
