Me and Pal Kevin headed up north, had a lovely dinner and then ran over to the Gateway theater where Austin Books hosted a screening of Captain America with the Austin Chronicle. In attendance: Mark Waid.
Firstly, I am a big fan of Mark Waid's work on Flash, Captain America, Kingdom Come, Irredeemable and a whole lot of other books and characters. Secondly, of Marvel's roster of characters, Captain America is one of my three favorites (with Spidey and maybe Rocket Raccoon).

So, this was kind of a big deal for me. Oh, and I also won a hat by answering a trivia question.
I actually had all the books that ABC had brought with them to purchase and get signed (like I said, I'm a Mark Waid fan), so I thought - ah, heck. Why not?
|yeah, I made him sign the hat, too|
Mark Waid will be at Austin Books on Saturday from 4-7pm, if you have a chance to stop by.
My review of Cap is coming, but (spoilers) - I loved that thing.
