General Information:

http://www.comic-con.org/cci/
It's hard to believe, but Comic-Con 2007 is right around the corner. It seems like only yesterday when 123,000 of our closest friends descended on the San Diego Convention Center for the four-day celebration of all things pop culture. In our 38th year, we once again carve four days out of the warm summer to celebrate all things comic, with a good measure of the popular arts added in. That's right: we're doing it again and you're invited!

    I'm going!

    I'll have to sit down and honestly think about whether I should offer to pick people up stuff. I've never been before and I don't know what sort of time I'll have to devote and when. I know shit like that goes super fast sold out on hour one of day one, and the lines are mondo-long.

    Yeah, I'll think about it.

    Just don't go too crazy with orders. I'd hate to spend all day shopping for other people instead of enjoying the convention.

    I'm excited to meet Warren Ellis, Paul Pope, Darwyn Cooke, J. Williams III and Brian O'Malley.

    Everyone else can cram walnuts.

    Mostly because I've encountered them already and I'm over it.

    In other news, Stan Sakai is the nicest guy at Comic Con.

    I'm going to have a Robin sketchbook for all the artists to draw in

    Absolute New Frontier is probably the only thing I'll bring to get signed

    unless Gail Simone is there

    then I'll probably bring Birds of Prey #100 or something

    Meh, Cali is too far away and I don't have the money for the trip. Maybe one day...

    Anyway, what's the big convention in Florida? Because I can make that one easily.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    If anyone can get me a Commander Cody bust from Gentle Giant at SDCC... oh man I will love you for a long time.

    Also, you know... fully reimburse you plus a little extra.

    Exactly how much does a Comic-Con trip cost provided you don't intend to really buy anything?

    I'm in Fresno so, while it's a decent-size trip, it's not completely insane.

    I'll be there.

    I hope that guest list gets longer. Last year Ryan Sook was there, and I'd love to get another chance to get a sketch from him.

    The wife and I are planning to attend again this year. Hopefully we'll have some cash to spend.

    And maybe I won't get my heart broken by a C-list celebrity... D:

    :( I won't be there this year. I just don't have the time or money this year to make it out there. I really wanted to go again. Last year was amazing for Bogey and I so I guess I can take this year off and not feel too badly about it.

    I'm trying to make last-minute arrangements to go - too many of my online friends/acquaintances/peeps are coming this year to pass it up.

    Also my artist friend and I have a pitch we want to make. This may not be as farfetched as it sounds, since this year, if I go, I have the proverbial hook-up.

    I don't suppose anyone could pick up the exclusive MLP for me?

    It's $10 and usually they don't run out. I'm dying to get one, so if I could PayPal the money to anyone . . . I mean, look at it in all its garish glory!
