Comic book characters

Editor's note -- Michael Kupperman went to New York Comic Con 2011 this weekend dressed in a Mark Twain costume. He had his picture taken with Beetlejuice, Solomon Grundy, Big Bird and a Wookie. 
 "It was more fun than being just a guy and making small talk. Like being a character at Disneyland," said Mark Twain.

Photographs of today's madness! 



  1. When I was 14 my father took my mother, brother, and me to see Hal Holbrook perform his one-man Mark Twain show. It was genius! I will always remember that.

  2. I bet. I think I remember the raves about him, or seeing something about how great he was as Twain.

    And Fay, you're not going to believe me when I tell you I just mysteriously found a link to an Oct. 15th review of Holbrook's autobiography:

    Harold: The Boy Who Became Mark Twain
