Mild-mannered bookkeeper leads double comic life

Kim Green (as the Silver Banshee) and her daughter Cierra Jones (as Jaylah) pose before the Star Trek Galactic Federation symbol at the Alamo City Comic-Con. The mild-mannered Green, who is the office manager of The Highlander, has a geeky side that only comes out at Comic-Con.

One of the highlights of every Comic-Con International: San Diego, which wrapped another successful four days of fun and games in July, is the amazing cosplay by those in attendance.

For those who are uninitated in the ways of geekdom, cosplay — a blending of the words costume and play — is the art of dressing up as and imitating a character from a fan's favorite movie, book, comic, graphic novel or video game and the San Diego Comic-Con can be likened to the Super Bowl for cosplay enthusiasts.

A similar scene was played out not long ago in San Antonio as thousands of comic book fans, gamers and self-identified "geeks" descended upon the Mission City to show their enthusiasm for the latest fantasy heroes, heroines, villains and the artists who created them.
