Cordy's a Little Blue... (or) Lorenzo!
On Friday I met a fine gentleman from Pisa, Italy named Lorenzo Croce. Lorenzo is a massive Buffy/Angel fan who was spending a few days in Dublin. He had got onto me previously about maybe meeting up while he was here to talk about the Angel comics and the shows. While I admit I was a teensy bit wary of meeting somebody who contacted me over the net, I'm so glad I did, as Lorenzo turned out to be a lovely fella altogether, totally down to earth and, like me, a massive fan of both shows.
We yapped for an hour or two over coffee, just waxing fanatical about the verse. I also did a couple sketches for him, one of Angel in his FIRST NIGHT hardcover, and also this Cordy pic.
So all in all, stalking people you admire over the internet obviously works, and will score you some free crap.
PS- I can't go without mentioning Kinzica and Marta, Lorenzo's two lovely female friends who were travalling with him. Great people.
Even if Kinzica is a huge CHARMED fan.
