San Diego Comic Con

The biggest comic convention of the season started today and I'm not there. I haven't been in about six years. I remember the first one I went to back in the eighties and what I thought was a big con now seems so small. It seems though that the whole premise of the convention, comics, are taking a back seat to Hollywood. Entertainment Weekly had their comic con issue and not one article was about comic books. But there still is a lot of comic books and comic book related stuff at the convention. I was reading that 2,000 fans of Twilight camped overnight to be sure to get in for the panel on their favorite book and movie.

The first San Diego Con I went to was short on Hollywood spectacle but I did see a few. I remember seeing David Carradine walking around and looking at comics, he wasn't there as a guest, he was there as a fan.

Sigh...lots of fun.

This is the first time in nearly a decade that my old company isn't there. Damn economy.

Travis, what type of business was your old company in? Did you ever get a chance to go?

We made games. I never got to go to Comic Con.
