Incredibly Long San Diego Comic Con Newspost

First off, if you missed Monday's comic, it went up very
late (sorry, again, about that), and you can see it by clicking
CON - Wow, what a Con. So many amazing things happened, I think it was
the best con I've been to yet really, mostly because everyone was just
so...nice. It was apparently the year of benevolence.
Oh what the heck, let's start off with a little S*P t-shirt defacing:
A very nice
man who bought ad space from me stopped by and kindly asked if I'd sign
Randy's shirts. I...have no idea why. But of course I agreed, after calling
Randy and leaving a cackling voicemail telling him what I was about to
was begging for a tattoo anyway.
And now for
a cosplayer of a different kind:
seen Arrested Development, you'll recognize him. If you haven't...good
grief, what's keeping you?
was dressed up as the Incredibles:
there was Batman. Oh, Batman. This nice young man strode by the
Keenspot booth with his mask off and after I begged shamelessly for him
to put it on for a photo, he obliged.
he was just as hot with the mask off.
I give you Catwoman to appease you:
lady was wanting to go home I think, yet she politely stopped for a picture
when I asked if I could have one. She's one of a gaggle of Batman players
from Gotham Public Works
- they have some of the most amazing costumes EVER. I wish I could have
gotten a picture of the Joker and Harley Quinn, but as I said, they WERE
planning on leaving.
Oh yeah and
there was the usual Star Wars stuff:
I think that
man there with the lightsaber was going to save them but decided they
were more entertaining with chains on. There was a ton of the usual Star
Wars costumes floating around.
is not in costume.
He just has
one of the most amazing mustaches ever. I didn't catch his name, sadly,
but he was awfully nice and perfectly fine with an exclamatory redhead
taking photos of his facial hair.
is not in costume either.
But how amazing
is that?! TWO enchanting mustaches! He also was fine with the overly excitable
redhead taking photos, and while I'm fairly sure I caught his name I don't
remember it, which makes me sad. However, I DID find out after accosting
him with my camera phone that he was working at the booth for Neverwear,
a website with Neil Gaiman merchandise on it including the lovely shirt
he is wearing.
I have yet
to meet a well-groomed mustache that wasn't terribly polite and charming.
As I snapped
the photo, Jack said "Peanut". Just so.
it for Con photos for this year, if you've made it through them, I'm sorry
the quality was not terrific, but I didn't take my camera because it is
heavy and I didn't want to carry it around all day. If you are planning
on attending Con next year I'll be there as always - and prepare to be
entertained, as Randy Milholland of Something Positive will be there as
well - and if you aren't planning on attending, now would be a good time
to start planning!
