WALES COMIC CON WREXHAM
April 27-28, 2019
Richard visited Wales this weekend to attend the Wales Comic Con held at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, Wales.
The convention marked a much anticipated reunion with his Stargate costar Amanda Tapping and provided an opportunity for the two of them to participate in a joint Question & Answer Panel on Saturday, and a joint photo session on Sunday.
Richard also took the time to greet and chat with fans, pose for photos, and sign autographs.
Below are some photos from Richard's visit to the Wales Comic Con.

Richard also posed for photos with fans and chatted with fans as he signed autographs. During the photo and autograph sessions, Richard met Doug and his service dog Monty. Doug is a disabled army bomb disposal veteran, and Monty comes to him through Hounds for Heroes (https://houndsforheroes.com). Of course Richard had to spend some time getting to know Monty, and it was Richard who requested the special photo op.
April 29, 2019 - Note From Rick
On Monday, as he awaited his outgoing flight following Wales Comic Con, Richard sorted through his photos from the weekend and shared some of his favorites, including several selfies with various "guests" and props at the convention. Then he added a spontaneous selfie with Amanda Tapping. Finally, as he boarded his plane to catch a connecting flight in Paris, he sent one more selfie with a note commenting on the lack of other passengers.

The perfect flight - nobody else on the plane.
A few days later, after he had returned home, Richard sent one additional photo of a piece of colorful artwork. His note explained:

The 'Nose' painting was a work hanging in a hallway of the hotel in Wales. I took the pic because I have a hankering for oddities and color, art in general.
Just thought I'd share.
Then, when he was sent a copy of the special photo op he had requested of himself with Monty the dog, he sent an enthusiastic reply:
Thank you! I'm loving this picture.
Don't tell Andy!
