Hanging with Ray Felix

Perhaps one of the coolest things about going to comic book shows (like NY Comic Con) is getting to hang with good friends, including people like Ray Felix from Bronx Heroes. Which is precisely what I did while I was at NYCC, and I’m glad that I did, because it was there that I met Trevor Von Eeden. Trevor is doing work for Ray’s Bronx Heroes Comics and spent quite a bit of time at Ray’s booth. It was there — while visiting with Ray — that I was introduced to and got to chat with Trevor.

I even purchased a copy of the first volume of Trevor’s book, The Original Johnson. The graphic novel is Von Eeden’s personal and heartfelt biography of Jack Johnson, the first African-American heavyweight champion of the world, international celebrity, and the most controversial American of his time. This is an amazing artistic achievement of Trevor’s long and storied career (Trevor has worked on Batman, Black Canary, Black Lightning, Green Arrow, and many other characters), more than four years in the making and worth every moment (Look for my review soon to follow).

Anyway, here are some Pics from the con, including several of Trevor.

First up, Spider-Man stopped by.

Trevor and the gang @ Bronx Heroes.

Mr. Trevor Von Eeden

Even Solomon Grundy stopped by.

For those of you who don't know Ray, he is an industrious guy. Never quite satisfied to do just one thing, he is now packaging his own line of soda. No, really, check it out!

Unable to resist, I purchased one myself, I even got mine autographed!

Seriously, Droogs, who’s cooler than Ray?
