It's coming. Less than 2 weeks to go and the invasion that is Comic Con is coming to San Diego again. Anyone here going?

Cynthia
No I'm not but it sounds really cool. I take it you are going? Who are you most looking forward to meeting? What sights or exhibits are you most excited about? Have you got any cool stories about past Comic Cons you've been to? Smile
That always sounds like it's so much fun!! If I was on the West Coast I'd love to join you. Have a great time. Maybe Daria will be there?

Hey if you ever see Kel tell him hello. I think he'll be at the Aero/CT show in Irvine.
Hey Allie!
Yeah it is always a blast! Daria is going and hopefully she and I can meet up one of the days. I haven't seen or heard from Kel in like forever! I have been to several shows this year and didn't see him at any of them. I would go to the Irvine show, but, I want a full set from the band. I am not a big Aerosmith fan, besides I won't have the $$ because of Comic-Con.

Cynthia
Hey Cynthia...Seems like forever since I have been to CA. Last time I was out there was for the Hollywood Bowl show in 08. That's the last time I saw Kel too, he does e-mail once in a while.

Last time I was in Irvine was 03 for the Arrowfest show. Didn't really care for the revenue, although the last minute Meet & Greet made up for it.

Hope you get to see Daria & Clare. Have a blast & can't wait to read about who you run into.

Have fun!! :laugh:
Yeah no kidding. You have to hike into Irvine to get to your seats. It is exhausting. I just know Comic Con is going to rock this year 1963_headbanger_playing_an_electric_guitar.gif just like last year and the year before, etc, etc.........

Went to my first one in 2008. Lotta fun.

Sage Advice: NOT FOR SMALL CHILDREN!! We had our 2 year old , with stroller , and the crush of rabid ignorant fanboy/girls is absurd. No one believes in elbow room. Even when I was walking as a solo person , some twerps can just be real @sses when it comes to crowds! The whole "ME ME ME ME!" attitude , gets tired , quick.

BUT , as far as panels , and meeting celebs...yeah fun. I love costume watching ,myself. Have FUN kids! ( Just be prepared for some occaisional unwanted human contact! )

:devil:
Woo-hoo---two more weeks, Cynthia! I'm finally getting pumped up for Comic-Con now that I'm starting to pack. I've had t-shirts made to promote my novel, but I'm dedicating at least one day to playfully harassing that mean ol' Geoff Johns with my "Justice For Tempest" t-shirt and cute little Tempest rag-doll. If you see a crazy woman on the news being dragged out of the Con, it'll likely be me for giving a certain comic book writer a hot-foot. (I think the fire marshal might take issue with that, but then he'll be too busy counting heads)...

One thing I love about this year's Con is that lots of the writers and artists are already posting their schedules on Facebook. I've RSVP'd to attend Steve Rude's demonstration (LOVE his Jonny Quest artwork!) and Joe Philips and Phil Jimenez have already alerted fans regarding panels at which they will appear. Got my iPhone just in time to keep up with all of the insanity.

Sad news for the Twilight fans, though: it was announced yesterday that there will be no panel this year. (There will be a lot fewer fans sleeping on the sidewalk outside of the convention center this year, I guess)...

LOTS of unwanted human contact, what with 150,000 people all crammed into one huge barn. They even have a condition called "Comic-Con Ooze" which describes the gross sweaty substance secreted by certain fanboys with big, hairy arms. People have been known to break out in hives from such contact. Seriously gross.

As for the squeeze---managing strollers or wheelchairs can be a nightmare in that place. I had to push my sis around in a wheelchair while there a couple of years back after her hip replacement and it was HORRIBLE trying to get down those aisles. People were so rude and would jump right out in front of us without warning or just stand there blocking the aisles when people were asking to get by. Of course, there were some very nice folks who would hold doors and the like, but for the most part it is just a very difficult place to manage wheeled conveyances---as well as small kids. (Too right)!
some day i'll get to a con, the motorcity one just doesn't impress me. i want to meet the big guns not the dude that was the stunt double for boba fett in star wars.

We often take photos of Boba Fett at Comic-Con...usually several of them. I'm always impressed with the realism of the costumes these folks create; they should be working professionally. I met the 1960s version of the Justice League a couple of years back and their uniforms were perfect. (So apparently real people CAN look "super" in Spandex after all)...

Anything for you, kiddo! PM me and give me the details so I can make a note of it. (I have a brain like a sieve)! I'll be hunting that exclusive Mattel JLA action figure set with the recording of the tale performed by Kevin Conroy (Batman)---that looks so cool!

:laugh:
I'm excited. Can't wait to finally have issue # 1 in my hands.
I'm so excited---I can't wait to see the page I've got in print. (Thank you for signing it, Matt). I'm sure the book will be a great success and it's so cool that you folks will appear at Comic-Con.
