When I first heard that Joe was coming to the UK, I was overjoyed!!! The last time I had seen Joe was in February 2009 and I really wanted to see him again – perhaps more to see if he was just as nice as before or whether that had been all an act. As the convention got closer, I almost changed my mind on going – there were going to be no talks, no photos allowed etc, etc, and it seemed that it might not be so much fun after all. How wrong was I……?
I attended Collectormania 16 in Milton Keynes on the last day of the con (Monday) as I only found out Joe would be there on short notice, so I decided to travel up just for the day. I met up with a friend and we had a great time, except for the chilly winds in the stadium.
First order of the day was photo ops. Joe was lovely and welcoming as always. When I went in for the photo Joe said he remembered me, which was a huge surprise to me as I’d only had the pleasure of meeting him once before.
