Fans share their experiences meeting Summer at Garden State Comic Fest
|Date: 29 Apr 2018 ||
We are often warned about meeting our heroes, as they tend to disappoint... unless your hero happens to be a Terminator reprogrammed to save mankind from Skynet enslavement. Summer Glau's co-stars claim she is one of the kindest people they have ever met, and fan encounters with the Firefly and TSCC actress during Garden State Comic Fest in Atlantic City show she is down-to-earth, personable, and a real sweetheart.
Here is what it's like to meet Summer, according to the Garden State Comic Fest stories I have collected for you. She will not only pose for pictures with fans, but the Serenity star will engage them in actual conversation and genuinely cares about her fans. Is Summer Glau one of the sweetest people on Earth? According to these fan stories, absolutely.
1) NJ BatSquad Studios's photo generated a lot of comments from fans, so we asked them what was going on there. Summer's face though. lol
Super fan Stuart Greenberg asked Ms. Glau to pretend to be disturbed by his enthusiasm similar to how the The Big Bang Theory guys were losing it over meeting her in that classic episode. She was nice enough to play along as per her fan's request.
2) Rich from Caped Justice Jewelry gave Summer a Wonder Woman necklace and pin modeled after Gal Gadot's tiara in the phenomenal Wonder Woman movie. Nice kilt btw, Rich!
Hi Chris, my name is Richard Cerzosimo (Rich) and I was the the one fortunate enough to meet Summer. She was an absolute pleasure to speak with. Mike and I are both fans of her work, and specifically her role as River Tam on Firefly.
3) Henry was lucky to escape with his life. Wearing that subliminal evil bunny shirt could have triggered an incident if Summer was suddendly in full River mode.
Met Summer Glau aka River Tam from Firefly.
4) Meeting Summer at Garden State Comic Fest was definitely the highlight of illustrator Jenaro's weekend. Love the sketch of Cameron...a true piece of art.
Hello! Well, I got the chance to meet Summer and it was amazing. She was a total sweetheart and very down to earth and got the chance to chat with her for a bit.
5) Cover artist/ illustrator Ron Leary Jr had a great one on one with Summer...and she absolutely loved his 'Serenity' art. For your viewing pleasure, I also included an awesome River Tam ink sketch that Ron did prior to the convention.
The pencil drawing Summer is holding in the photo is the second of a three piece set in the works. I was planing on working this back into my schedule because it was a favorite show of mine. When Summer was added as a guest to the same show I was going to, I knew I had get as much of this piece done and hit it out the park.
And icing on the cake, Ron sent us footage of Summer signing the Firefly sketch he created specially for the occasion. Enjoy!
Many thanks to all fans pictured in this blog who have kindly shared their wonderful photos and stories. Thank you to Summer for putting yourself out there to meet and engage with fans, even for a short time; we appreciate it.
