Comic Con

Wow, what a day! Traffic was horrible and we spent a LOT of time waiting in lines but the stuff we did manage to see was awesome! My daughter loves celebs, so we spent a lot of time in Hall H to see movie panels...RED, where we saw Bruce Willis, Mary-Louise Parker, Helen Mirren, and Warren Ellis.

Then we stuck around for a discussion with JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon...not really much revealed here and my boyfriend actually fell asleep during this one! HOWEVER, he sure did wake up for The Expendables panel. This is an action movie featuring Sylvester Stallone, Terry Crews, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham, and Jet Li. I thought I would be bored out of my mind, but these guys were hilarious! Stallone's banter with the other cast members was great and we all really enjoyed this one!

One of the highlights for me was seeing my friend Brian Denham, an amazing comic book artist...he's worked on Iron Man and X Files and every year he does these crazy cool sketch caps with whatever characters you want on them. Check out the ones he made for me this year...


Awesome huh??
And no trip to the Con would be complete without swag...here's the goodies I scored..






My daughter has a lot more pictures on her camera, I will try to get some of those uploaded tomorrow. All in all, a fun day, just wish I had been able to go all four days but the tickets sold out back in February!! I'm gonna have to get mine earlier for next year!

Brian's sketches are really fantastic.

Too bad the conversation with Whedon wasn't so great. I would have wanted to go to that one, too.

Gah, I SO envy you - I have always wanted to go to Comic-Con!

By the way, I had no clue that Shannon Doherty was releasing a book - I love her!! :)

Oh, I'm so jealous right now! It seems like you guys had so much fun, and you got some really great stuff from it. I've always wanted to go to Comic-Con, but unfortunately, I live on the other side of the continent. I usually just watch them on youtube.

Thanks for sharing your pics.

I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE the art! Is it scanable?

If any of you ever get the chance, GO! It is most definitely something that should be experienced at least once!
I was thinking it would make a great header too, but it's on a trucker cap =( Might ask him if he would design a header for me...
