Last weekend we went back to Vasquez Rocks for a picnic, hike and general climbing of rocks.
For those non-Star Trek Nerds, Vasquez Rocks is where they filmed the classic (and my favorite) episode "The Arena" which had Kirk battle the Gorn Captain (as well as numerous other television shows and movies).
...why yes, I did bring some toys to take pictures of!
* That's actually a Pike figure, which is also sweet because PIKE VS GORN!!!
My favorite Dillon books were his JUDGE DREDD, ROGUE TROOPER, HELLBLAZER and of course PREACHER runs. Several years back I had the pleasure to briefly meet him at SDCC, where he was kindly doing free sketches. I asked for one of Jesus' inbred descendant from 'Preacher'. I remember this great big grin appearing on his face and then he drew an awesome sketch of the drooling kid (I'll dig out the sketch and post later). He was very nice, humble and generous.
Steve Dillon was a Comic Legend and his passing is hitting fans hard. 'Preacher' remains one of my all-time favorite comic book masterpieces.
