Wait. I have SO many questions:

#1. First of all, the cast of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?  Don’t get me wrong, I may or may not have watched BVS in my heyday and had the Buffy doll. Two of them but why are they being resurrected now? 12/21/12?  I think it is hilarious that the lusty and villainous Spike who mercilously devoured humans and severed jugulars…

is now..

…an acoustic guitar player at New England comic con??

#2. Adam West will be there AND OBAMA?!  Or should I say..Obama will be there…AND ADAM WEST?!?! And they phrase it as “Barack Obama is in the house!” Our President and Batman will be in the same building with Storm Troopers and Suicide Girls?



I just. can’t.

..but you should. ♥
