    A comic book store an hour away from me had Ernie Hudson and some other comic book artists there as guests today. The family and I made the drive to meet him and got our photo taken with him and had him sign some Ghostbusters stuff. He's a super nice guy, very fan friendly.

    What?! I'd have jumped at that chance. AWESOME! Glad to hear he's down-to-earth. Thanks for sharing that, and you've got a beautiful family as well.

    Awesome. Personally I think he'd make a fine edition to Botcon's Guest Stars.

    Thank you!

    Yeah, they called their event the Not At Comic Con Comic Con. Heh. A lot of the other people they had there were local artists. One of the people who was there was Dawn Best, who drew some issues of Sonic. My oldest daughter collects Sonic comics and was really excited to get a Sonic sketch and have it autographed.
    Ernie was supposed to be at this place on Free Comic Book Day, but was unable to make it because of a surgery. Is that the health scare you're talking about? I'm not too sure all of the details of what he needed the surgery for. Anyway, his inability to make it to FCBD led to the comic shop promising to reschedule him in the future, which led to them doing their first ever Not At Comic Con Comic Con.
    What was really crazy was that coming in to see him was practically free. We had to stand in line in the sun for a long while, but all they asked for in payment was that you made a donation in a jar before meeting him that went to charity. In return you got an autographed Winston photo and/or he'd sign something you brought with you and you got your picture taken with him. Many people were only dropping like a buck in the jar for all that. Meeting Ernie meant more than a buck to me, and it was for charity, so I couldn't bring myself to put so little in there and was a tad more generous in the jar than that.
    There were a group of guys there dressed as Ghostbusters that had awesome replicas of the jumpsuits and proton packs and they even had an Ecto-1 with them with a working siren. It was pretty impressive. Ernie came out and got a photo with them at their car.
    All around it was an enjoyable time.

    He seems like such a cool guy. The only famous person I've met is Tom Meents (driver of Maximum Destruction). :(
