I meant to do a longer post on how this trip was funded, and believe me it could have been it’s own post, however I find myself with so much to say already that I’ll just say this; a few years ago Colleen and I committed to saving every $5 bill we got and all our coin change. With that we managed to more than fund a trip across the country to New York Comic Con (we wanted to go to San Diego but couldn’t get tickets). We had family and friends help us out as well from time to time but the bulk of the funds came from those $5 bills.
Anyway we had a fairly uneventful trip to NYC, except a small detour to go back for our badges which we couldn’t get in without. There was some hassle with our hotel which we are still sorting out but that is also not the subject of this post. I’m gonna talk about what we actually did at NYCC, and experiencing it as a first time fan AND as someone who is very new to the world of comics.
