Comic-Con 08: Part 1

comic-con 31

Some storm troopers wouldn't let me pass, I had to use my Jedi mind control on them. ^^

Well, as I mentioned in one of my previous posts I was attending this year's Comic-Con for two days, held at the San Diego convention center.

It was quite fun, a ton of booths with all kinds of different subject matter, from video games, to comics (of course), to anime/manga, gothic clothing, figures, statues, the PC magazine "Maximum PC" even had their own booth, they always give out a TON of free things. There were WAY too many people though, every single day was sold out and they estimate that they served about 200,00 unique people over the course of the 4 and 1/2 days. x.x

Anyway, without further ado, here is my coverage from Comic-Con. Another post with my loot to come soon (I.E. once I take all the pictures). xD

Here are some of the original Japanese Bleach manga panels drawn by Tite Kubo. He was also doing an autograph signing there, but that was impossible to get into, only 200 autographs signed over the 4 days. =/

Some manga and posters of the latest from Yen Press at the Square Enix booth. Sorry about the out of focus and shaky pictures, I'm still quite an amateur when it comes to photography, getting better though. :p

This one was very cool, it was taken at the Broccoli Books panel, they brought in the author of Fairy Tail (フェアリーテイル): Hiro Mashima and after answering some questions and talking about his manga he drew this up for everyone to see. He was very quick, he did it in about 2 minutes time, quite amazing. I have a video of him actually drawing it but the video is quite horrible quality, I'll upload it somewhere anyway if someone wants it. Let me know. :p

Here are a couple of pictures from outside, they had the terracotta statues from the third Mummy movie set up outside: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, very cool.

And to finish up here, some pictures of the bridge leading to Coronado island where there is a US naval air station along with some pictures of the boats parked right behind the convention center. These were taken from the top level of the convention center.
