Autographed photo of James Marsters as Spike and Juliet Landau as Drusilla

Who is this? Actors James Marsters and Juliet Landau
What is this? An autographed 8x10 photo of James Marsters as Spike and Juliet Landau as Drusilla from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Where'd I get it? Landau signed it for me at a Chiller Theatre show in 2006; Marsters signed at at New York Comic Con last Sunday
How much did it cost? $60-$70

Why is this so special? This is the month for finishing Buffy the Vampire Slayer multi-signed pieces. Earlier this month, I was able to get Doug Jones to sign a photo of the Gentlemen from "Hush", and last weekend I was able to get Marsters to sign this photo of Spike and Drew.

There was a sizable, steady line for Marsters all weekend whenever he was at his booth, even though he was charging $40 for an autograph. I put it off until Sunday, and I still ended up waiting for close to an hour before I got through his line. He had sold out of all of his photos except for a few copies of a general shot and a small pile of Torchwood pics.

Marsters did take the time to shake hands with everyone and talk with them. He mentioned how much he enjoyed working with Juliet Landau. Since I was wearing a Serenity t-shirt, he couldn't resist pointing out that Firefly was a great show, but "Serenity" had to be the most boring movie title ever. It's hard to disagree. :)

This was the final autograph I got at New York Comic Con. Tomorrow, I'll get back to posting baseball cards of players that you may or may not have heard of. :)

If you like Juliet Landau's acting you should check out Tobe Hooper's Toolbox Massacre as she has a (small) role in it. Beautiful piece by the way, I love how James signed it!
