Attack of the chicken head!
Being married to a freelancer often has its perks, and one of the more delightful ones occurred last Thursday night, as we were invited to DC Comics’ editorial-freelance dinner to kick off the NYCC. This was a great way to meet folks like Gail Simone who, as it turned out, we never saw for the rest of the weekend.
Trish Mulvihill has lots of photos at her blog, but we especially wanted to note the appearance of the chicken heads. Originally part of the platter presentation for the wonderful Asian feast prepared by our host, the chicken heads soon took on a life of their own. As we (who should have known better) didn’t bring our camera to the event, the photos below are courtesy of Harvey Richards, who shared our table along with Gail and her beau Scott, Rags Morales, and Dan DiDio.
That’s Rags in the background.
The chicken head (who looked French with that shiitake-mushroom cap) was really front and center.
Our old friend Rod Ramos meets his match.
The chicken heads were gathered up and given to Eddie Berganza; for all we know, they still reside in his apartment. We don’t wish to think too hard about that.
