nerdtopia

i finally got to go to the sd comic-con to see what all the fuss is about. even though i live in sd, my work sked prevented me to check it out in the past.

the hollywood & gaming industry's presence was definitely felt, but i was there to see the interesting people & the artwork.

it's hard not to feel the energy at the con. it's like walking in a huge (*star wars ref alert*) mos eisley cantina or (*more geek ref alert*) hellboy's troll market.

just a few of the pics i took:

imperial officer shoots hellboy.

tired jedis (too many storm troopers at the con)


i wanted to buy these "artists" figurines. too bad, they would have looked great beside the da vinci action figure & the larry bird bobble head ... (i should stop typing).

just missed.

watchmen's owlship. great book. hope the movie does it justice.

a family outing - speedy & the green arrow. this just spells comic-con.

i keep on saying i'll go as well, but you have less of an excuse than me due to the proximity. i'll shoot for next year like i always do. when i do it's good to know that i have a couple of old friends in town to visit.

glad to see you got baptized in nerddom at the con.

hey c.b. - let me know if you ever go. it would be fun checking the kingdom of nerdtopia with a fellow art fan.

wondercon's still fun. comic-con though is huge.
