Seeing as both BEA and NYCC happen at the Javits Center in New York City, the majority of the setting felt familiar and made me nostalgic about the ridiculous things that happened there, like arriving at 7 AM to start the line when the floor didn’t open until 1 PM and a wild bird flying in to hang around for signings (YES, THAT HAPPENED).
In his adolescence, Dean sought the counsel and friendship of a local Methodist pastor, the Rev.
James De Weerd, who seems to have had a formative influence upon Dean, especially upon his future interests in bullfighting, car racing, and theater.
He is remembered as a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause (1955), in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.
The other two roles that defined his stardom were loner Cal Trask in East of Eden (1955) and surly ranch hand Jett Rink in Giant (1956).

Not everyone knew what VIP passes, Guest Badges, or other perks meant.Graham met his best friend, Roxy, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends.And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.
