Barring acts of God and family emergencies in three days the wife and I are going to pack up the car and drive six and a half to seven hours from here at the Fortress to a lovely (hopefully) hotel in Metropolis, Illinois. After years of talking about it we are finally going to attend the Superman Celebration that the city of Metropolis throws every June.
I am so excited about this. Not only will it be my first trip to Metropolis but I’ll also be meeting Steve Younis and Neal Bailey face-to-face for the first time as well. It should be fun. Murphy Anderson is on the guest list, so that means I’ll be packing my copy of Superman: From the ’30s to the ’70s. Michael Eury, current editor of Back Issue magazine and former associate editor on the Superman titles in the late ’80s, so my copy of The Krypton Chronicles will be packed as well. Allison Mack, Ned Beatty and Noel Neil will be there too, so there will be all kinds of neat people to meet.
The plan is that I will be posting updates and pictures here every night once we get settled. Of course if I am socializing or just plain tired this might not happen, but check back every day just the same because I want to chronicle this particular trip.
Again, I am so looking forward to this.
