Recommended Posts

Well, I'm off for Comic-Con International tomorrow. I just purchased a digital camera, so I'll try to post pictures nightly.

I present to you a handful of pictures from the preview night of Comic-Con International.

Here's the crowd that had lined up hours before the doors were to open.

Preview art for the newest Avengers title: Young Avengers. This book will debut in the aftermath of "Avengers: Disassembled," and will be penned by a writer of The O.C. (pardon me for not recalling his name this late). Expect it in January 2005.

We were told that several young people (possibly young heroes who already exist in the Marvel Universe) will step-up to fill the void that has been created, but nothing more.

(Sorry about the poor quality. I tried to darken and sharpen it in Photoshop, but this is the best I can do.)

Also announced was Warren Ellis' attachment to Iron Man and the mini-series Ultimate Nightmare -- part one of a trilogy staring The Ultimates. Several new 2099 titles were mentioned as well, including Daredevil 2099, Black Panther 2099, and Mutant 2099.

Look for a full report early next week. (Unlike E3, I'll actually write this one... I hope.)

PLEASE tell me you saw Eliza Dushku while you were there!  If not her, how about Sarah Michelle Gellar?

Nope, and nope. However, I have a friend who met Eliza at Wizard World Philadelphia. She was signing at a booth that was hosted by a company he works for, and said that she was rubbing up against and cooing all over him. One of his coworkers corroborated his story, so take it for what it's worth.

I'll have to ask him if he has any pictures, just to make you that much more jealous. :P

Here are the goodies I acquired.

2" Marvel MiniMate 2pk -- Battle Damaged Captain America and Classic Punisher

Cap.jpg

2" Marvel MiniMate 2pk -- Gaijin Wolverine & Mariko Yashida

Wol.jpg

2" Marvel MiniMate 2pk -- Clobberin' Time Thing and Super Skrull

Thing.jpg

7" Fred Krueger, The Springwood Slasher (This is actually a Christmas present for a cousin.)

Fred.jpg

The unreleased Fantastic Four film (1994) on DVD. (Expect a review soon.)

FFDVD.jpg

And the pride of my collection, the complete series of Bone comics in one freaking huge volume! (Expect a review soon.)

Sadly, I wasn't able to get my mitts on the She-Ra figure, nor did I purchase the 7" "Crazy 88 Director" Quentin Tarantino Kill Bill figure. But I'm confident I'll end up with both by the time Wizard World Chicago has come and gone.

I hope the picture quality's better than the bootleg VHS version I picked up there four or five years ago. Still, dark video or not, that's one hilarious film. The final scene, with Mr. Fantastic waving goodbye, is awesomely bad.

Besides being a little dark, the picture quality was surprisingly okay. And this entire movie was "awesomely bad." There were times where I didn't know if I should bang my head, laugh, or bang my head while laughing.

Hope you had a good time -- I can't wait for Chicago now! :)

It was awesome. Clearly my best visit to CCI ever. Chicago should be super cool too.

My buddy Joe surprised me by bringing back the F4 DVD from San Diego for my birthday, and Autumn bought me original artwork from a cover of Flaming Carrot Comics, which is totally killer. So I basically got all the goodies I'll ever need from ComicCon without going this year. Muhahahaaa
