San Diego Comic-Con 2017
A Sea of Streams
This year's Comic-Con. WOW. Hey, guys, look what we
Quick recap: our mom saw this small ad in
the newspaper about kids who love comic books. My
two brothers, David and Patrick McGlone, along with Gary Pagel
and Michael Williams, 2 neighborhood friends we hung out with,
checked it out.
We met Shel Dorf, Richard Alf
others of the San Diego Five (we couldn't afford the
expenses of the trips to see Jack Kirby), Ken Krueger and the
Mostly we were "gofers," running errands,
guarding exhibits, escorting guests like Kirby...

on the committee for several years. I joined the Air Force,
while Pat, Mike and Gary got involved with other things. (My
was too young at that time to be involved, although she
enjoyed attending Comic-Con with our mom and would later
also get involved)

year, 2017, my brother Patrick attended for the first time
in ages with his wife -- them and David as my guests.
My wife Zina went as press photojournalist for this website, as she has for
quite a few years now.
And this report is my first step of a

many...); I'm also looking forward to the new iteration of
Always, one of those
things I think about as a fan of comics, was when would we
see movies or TV shows about our favorite characters...
Avidly we watched the Superman &
Batman TV shows (hats off to the recent passing of Adam West
and Noel Nielle), as well as the
animated shows, the old movie serials, and even the old radio
shows that are available now.
For anyone who pooh-poohs the movies, etc. for how they changed things, just

I still have to get caught up with some of
the TV shows. I'm especially excited about catching "The
Defenders," after seeing the first season of "Daredevil."
"Legends of Tommorrow" looks pretty good so far,
although I'm really sorry they killed off Leonard Snart,.

with the great examples of recurring bad guys who have to
play nice with the good guys. For instance, Dr Smith from
"Lost in Space," Mason from "Santa Barbara," Damon Salvatore
from "Vampire Diaries," & Kerr Avon from "Blake's 7."
I'm also looking forward to seeing the new "Spider-man." This
one is more like a high school freshman, where the others
feel like seniors, an impression I feel is reinforced by the
graduating scenes in the other movies...
wondering if they'll eventually get around to showing Betty Brant,
JJ's long suffering secretary...?

all of the toys and tee shirts I wanted (I never do)!
But then, there's always next year...
