Comicbörse, October 3rd 2010

I spent a fun afternoon at the Comicbörse (trnslates: "Comic-trade") a regular event in Vienna that offers trading of comic books and figurines.

This time there were some rather unusual visitors as well. As if titash, henriekeg, yamavu, karpour and little old me weren't strange enough...

We had a meerkat that kept hitting people on the head with a hammer... in this picture here, he discovered free coloring pages from henriekeg and took an interest in them...

Some people thought he was a fox though... weird.

We had a nos(e)y badger running around. He was not nearly as hyper but he welcomed people to the event.

Some people mistook him for a skunk though... weird.

There was also a member of an extinct(?) species about: A tasmanian tiger made his rounds near the end of the event. In this picture we can see him react to a careless comment made by a semi-innocent bystander (Image has been cropped to protect the not-so-innocent)

Last but not least, there was a new dog around... a puppy one should probably say. I think it's a female dog, so I'll go with "she". She was playful and received a very warm welcome by the public.

All in all a fun afternoon. I also could grab a hold of several missing issues of the "Lustiges Taschenbuch" comic series (="Funny Paperbacks", a monthly Duck/Mickey publication by Disney) and now I'm only missing 9 out of 407 issues :)

EDIT: Yes, I almost forgot... some reporter lady with a voice-recorder was going around, interviewing people left and right. One time I turn around and almost took a bite out of that thing: "What are these animal costumes all about!?" - "huh...?"
