Comics creators I've met ... not too many, surprisingly. I've met many more at various comic shows, but these are the only ones I've gotten photos of. Some of the photos are pretty good, though.
Above is Mark Waid, at Dewey's Comic City in Madision for a signing of all of the Flash comics he worked on. This was way back when I was in college, maybe 1998. With him is his girlfriend at the time, Devin Grayson, who was not yet famous here but went on to become a great writer herself, of Batman and Nightwing. Since the signing was only really for Waid, I got to talk to Grayson for awhile, who was just sort of along for the ride. I actually sent a copy of this photo to Waid in exchange for some signed books.
Another photo from that event.
Going back even younger, to when I was in high school, here's Gina Going, colorist for Flash comics, at a comic show. She was racing a schedule and in the middle of coloring right there.
Norm Breyfogle, one of my all-time favorite artists, and certainly the best Batman artist ever, in my opinion.
Here's Howard Porter and two other artists promoting the book The Ray. Porter went on to become well-known for JLA and yes, Flash.
Another photo of Waid (earlier than the others) and Bryan Augustyn, who worked together on Flash. Sensing a Flash theme?
I didn't get a photo of him, but here's the kick-ass Alias sketch he gave me at the 2007 comic show in NYC.
Random bonus: The two photos here are the talented voice actors from the Animaniacs cartoon, which I loved back in the day. They both have crazy hair. I will admit that these are not comic book creators, but it seemed appropriate to include them.

Below: John Wesley Shipp, who played The Flash on TV's The Flash, 1990-1991. (Also from Dawson's Creek.) What a nice guy. He was also nice enough to bend down to be closer to our height in the picture. My dad and I used to watch The Flash together and it kicked off a dangerous addiction once I also started buying the Flash comics.
Comics legend Neal Adams and his wife.
TV Superstar Adam West, aka Batman ... or at least his arm. We were prohibited from photographing him. Little did they know about my secret belt camera! Ha ha!
Bonus: Red Bank
These are photos of Kevin Smith's comic book store, and the setting on main street seen in his movie, Chasing Amy.
