What Are You Reading? Comic Con 2017 Edition
I attended this year's New York Comic Con at the Jacob Javits Center. Amid the mass of cosplayers, vendors, and artists, I wandered the floor finding out what some of the notable attendees were reading:
Alex Vincent who played Andy in the movies Child's Play and Child's Play 2 among other movies (Chucky related and otherwise), just finished Jeffry Lindsay's Dexter's Final Cut and is now reading the final Dexter novel, Dexter is Dead. He's enjoyed the whole series.
Andrew MacLean, author of Dark Horse's ApocalyptiGirl: An Aria for the End Times, is reading library collection of Nausicaä by Spirited Away filmmaker Hayao Miyazaki, and Simon Hanselmann's One More Year. He is also reading The Swords of Lankhmar by Fritz Lieber.
Prolific animator Tom Cook is reading Killing England: The Brutal Struggle for American Independence by Bill O'Reilly.
Paris Themmen who played Mike Teevee in the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is reading Ernest Cline's Ready Player One and Donna Tartt's The Goldfinch. He just finished listening to the audiobook of James Patterson's Jack and Jill. He'd lost his voice the night before (the Con is hard on the vocal chords!) but had prepared this handy FAQ for his fans! You can see more at wonkapops.com!
Finally, I caught up to John DiMaggio, voice of Futurama's Bender and countless other familiar voices at the very end of the Convention. He recently read Alan and Naomi by Myron Levoy. In August The New York Public Library partnered with Kanopy to bring free streaming movies to the public, and the 1992 movie based on the book is included in the service!
