While at Chicago’s C2E2 comics and entertainment expo a few weeks ago, a signing for the Nevsky poster drew a surprise guest—one of the knights from the nearby Medieval Times booth. This unnamed knight errant was as excited to get Ben McCool’s signature on the poster as McCool was to meet a real-life jouster.

Medieval Times concentrates on the knightly lore of Spain and France—as opposed to the Teutonic Knights and Russian warriors of Nevsky’s day. But perhaps there is a a present day alliance over a flagon of mead to be made?
