So today I was at FanExpo Vancouver, yakkin’ it up behind a dealer booth owned by a guy I know from the island, when this girl randomly rushed up and asked if we had any Transformers Spotlight books, specifically Spotlight: Jazz.
Flabbergasted, I told her I co-wrote it, and that I had coincidentally just donated 2 signed copies (1 of each cover) to the Comic Book Legal Defence Fund booth. I said she could get them there (and that I’d personalize them if she brought them back). For the life of me I can’t tell if this enticed her in any way to go buy the book she was so anxious to find just a minute before. Didn’t end up seeing her again today.
I think I was far more impressed by this hilarious and random as hell coincidence than she was. I can’t believe the odds that there would be someone looking for that book after all this time, and that one of the people she randomly asked for it was me.
