Comic-Con

logo
It's Friday the 13th, dreaded day of misfortune! I've already had a black cat -- a chubby, grunty one named Oscar -- cross my path several times, so my day will probably end in a broken ankle or a bucket on my head or something equally unlucky.

You are out of luck if you want to get a four-day pass for Comic-Con International in San Diego. In an interview at The Beat, Comic-Con Marketing and PR man David Glanzer reports that those are sold out. Don't fret; single-day passes are still available, though it looks like Saturday is well on its way to selling out, too. There will be no onsite registration, so if you want to go to Comic-Con you have to act now! Comic-Con is taking place between July 24-27, and if you have never attended, you should. It's astounding in its hugeness, really.

Comic-Con filled up really fast this year, despite the high cost of travel and hotels in a economically slumpy year. So much so that the SLG crew didn't get our regular hotel, the Gaslamp Hilton. We'll be at the Omni. It's going to be disorienting.

But, in any case, our booth will be our real home base. It's where we will spend 11 hours a day, relentlessly offering the public comics, graphic novels, T-shirts, posters, and toys. Many artists will also be there, to sign books and exchange pleasantries. Here they are, in no particular, other than alphabetical, order:

Aaron Alexovich
Karine Charlebois
Roman Dirge
Jennifer Feinberg
Jenny Goldberg
Jon "Bean" Hastings
Faith Erin Hicks
Derek Hunter
Eric Jones
Kenny Keil
Neil Kleid
Tommy Kovac
Karl Christian Krumpholz
Todd Meister
Ethan Nicolle
Chris Reilly
Andy Ristaino
Ian Smith
Tyson Smith
Serena Valentino
Jhonen Vasquez
Landry Walker
Gene Yang

Woe is me
Sounds amazing, Alas, I will be unable to attend.
Oh, Woe.
So many of my favorite artists are going to be there too! Boo hooo~

I hope everyone has fun, and avoids getting mauled by the hundreds of crazed comic fans.

Karine Charlebois will also be there! She's the reason I was able to afford to go. :P Also, for some reason the con registry sent me two passes, one for me, one for "guest." Since I am not bringing a "guest," maybe I could take advantage of fanboys-in-need and scalp it?

Anyway, I look forward to it all with excitement and terror! This con I will remember to eat!

Oh, that's right! She just wasn't on our badge list because she was going to be at Artists' Alley, but I just read about her troubles there. Yikes! Sounds like se could benefit from an extra pass!
