SDCC 2018–Savage encounters at Comic-Con

Consider this your moment of San Diego Comic-Con zen.

This weekend I got a chance to visit Weta Workshop’s booth at the San Diego Convention Center.  Lucky for me I was there the same time as Mythbusters and Tested’s Adam Savage.  I got to marvel at Adam while he got to marvel at one of the many incredible artisans from New Zealand’s Weta Workshop, presenting at their booth before one of Adam’s panels (the Weta folks gave him his own sword of Boromir from The Lord of the Rings).  This is what genuine curiosity looks like.  Adam often attends the show incognito, so actual sightings are a bit rare, and he was quite fun to watch being another one of us at the Con.

Then a funny thing happened.

I found myself standing next to a star of one of my favorite films, The Princess Bride…

Yep, Fred Savage, star of The Wonder Years, and more recently The Grinder with Rob Lowe, currently starring with Cobie Smulders, Keegan-Michael Key, and Annie Parisse on Season 2 of Netflix’s Friends from College.  

As far as I was able to discover, Adam and Fred aren’t related.

So I’ll leave you with this.  I then walked over to visit one of my favorite comic book cover artists and comedy writer, Frank Cho.

Frank created the Marvel Comics series Savage Wolverine.

Now back to regular programming.
