Tampa Bay Comicon?

That’s right folks…I made a pilgrimage across the great state of Florida to check out the epic misadventure that is the Tampa Bay Comic Con. Aside from being in close proximity to more dudes wearing spandex than any red blooded American should have to endure…it was pretty cool. I even brought some books and handed them out to random and assorted super heroes/ pop culture icons and snapped some snazzy pics as undisputed photographic evidence that my wee novels are pretty much the coolest thing since a Gotham City billionaire dressed himself up like a big ass bat. Have I mentioned the spandex already?

It is common today for alternative history researchers to tell the story of how these beings were discovered en masse throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Historians, antiquarians, and archaeologists recorded the discovery of the Unique Physical Types all over the United States, with a large concentration found in the mounds and earthworks of the Ohio River Valley and along the Mississippi River. These accounts can be found in any number of county, township, and state histories, as well as anthropological literature from both inside and outside of the Smithsonian Institution.
