|Check out some pictures of
the San Diego Comic Con
2004 that went down late last July. This year the con was
expanded to fill the entire San Diego convention center - more
than 600,000 square feet (and yet it was still
shoulder-to-shoulder on Saturday). I wrote up a feature on the Con over at
which, naturally, focuses on the whole Star Wars angle.
Some of the highlights of this year's geek fiesta included:
- Sin City movie
presentation by Rodriguez and Miller, complete with moody
black and white test footage. Can the movie be as good as
the books? The jury is out, but these are the guys to do it,
if any is gonna...
- Met Walt
Simonson, picked up a Thor sketch. By Odin!
- Chatted with
picked up a Punisher sketch.
Geof Darrow, picked
up a great oddball sketch of a guy (which I much later realized it was me) with a bird atop his head.
- Bumped into
Robert Rodriguez Saturday on show floor.
- After the
SW Fanfilm awards took in the SW One-Man Show.
Recommended (though not as mind-blowing as the "Star Wars in
30 Minutes" play).
- During the single hour
that I worked the cash register at the C2 Ventures autograph
booth I sold two Kenny (R2-D2) Baker autograph tickets to
Winnie Cooper from the
Winnie Cooper! She's quite the foxy drink of water these days. I called her "Minnie".
