Comic-Con: Preview Night

Preview Night brought the expected log jams to the roads surrounding the Convention Hall. The line to get into the Exhibit Hall was absolutely ridiculous, circling half the building, so we waited it out comfortably, scanning through the guide. Can you believe both Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki coming to Comic-Con in the coming days? Madness.

Our group started off accompanying me to Penny Arcade to pickup a Cardboard Tube Samurai Blank, we then split up as I needed to talk with Scott Kurtz. I made my way across the convention floor to stop by Flight in its new central location. Flight 6 was out, but I'll have to wait until September for Amulet 2. A little further down the floor I also dropped off two commissions for [Scott Morse][morse] as this one needed an update. I also picked up Strange Science Fantasy which, as promised, comes with original art from each issue. It's kind of fun to read a comic and have one of the original panels just sitting in the pages.

Despite splitting up, amazingly enough, all of us managed to accidentally reconvene at Stuart Ng books on the opposite side of the convention hall (those that know the distances involved would be impressed). Perhaps its the fact that Stuart Ng's booth is like a refuge as they control access into it to keep it comfortable. There I spied a copy of Vive il Ciclissimo, which was beautifully tempting, but as almost $100.

I was already exhausted and needed to take a food break. A cheeseburger, fries, drink, and $14 later, I was ready to go again.

I made my way back to the webcomics section once again, again stopping at Flight inbetween to pick up a print of the cover for the Flight 1 rerelease. This I explored the likes of Dumbrella. Sadly, there was an awesome kitty-holding-machine-guns "Baffer" by Chris Yates that we just missed out on. The POOP Stop signs were tempting, but I don't think the kitties can read.

I also chatted with Jorge Cham of PhD comics, stopped by picked up James Jean's Process Recess 3 and Fables Covers at Last Gasp, and otherwise wandered aimlessly with my now extremely heavy bag. Hopefully I've knocked off the heavy items for this trip, but there's still some Mouse Guard Winter hardback action and couple more bookish items that I'm sure will weight me down.

Here's Parakkum's summary
