On Saturday, I went to Comic Fusion (http://www.comicfusion.com/) in Flemington, NJ for Wonder Woman Day. While there were no Wonder Woman cosplayers in attendance, there were several other characters. They were asking donations to get your photo taken with the cosplayers and on Saturday alone raised over $700 for SAFE (a local woman’s shelter). They were also auctioning off various pieces of artwork featuring Wonder Woman.

The auctioning closed on the Sunday and sold an Adam Hughes sketch of Invisible Woman for $4,500.00!!! By the end of the event, Comic Fusion raised over $15,000 for SAFE.  While I was there, I took a bunch of photos, that you can see after the jump.

Ah, comics! Is there anything they can't do? I've been reading comics since the second grade when my friend lent me a copy of Spider-man where a strange black alien ooze broke Eddie Brock out of the jail cell he shared with Cletus Cassidy. I mostly read Spiderman and the X-men in my youth until a TV show named Batman the Animated Series came along. It took me until the issue of Hush subtitled "Punch Line" to buy a DC comic though. Since then, I've been reading and collecting nonstop.

Favorite comics: Superman/Batman, Batman, Detective Comics, anything by UDON, and Buffy: the Vampire Slayer
Favorite writers: Geoff Johns, Dwayne McDuffy, and Gail Simone
Favorite artists: Ed Benes, Ian Churchill, Alvin Lee, Jim Lee, and Dustin Nyugen
Favorite "can read anytime" book: JUSTICE

    Sorry, to P.S. — the “official” Wonder Woman Day was Sunday, 10/24 so that’s the only time Wonder Woman actually appears. Saturday is the kick off for our entire Superhero Weekend. ;)
