San Diego Comic Con: Day One!

Holy crap, I can't feel my legs!

I never imagined that I would run into so many cool people, but today I most certainly did! I scored interviews you guys will not believe and got the chance to hang out with some incredible creators. It is not every day that I can honestly say I stood there in my red boots completely awed at the notion of being in the presence of some of the greatest people in the comic book industry; but I did that today, and all I have to say is I freaking love my job!

Secondary to scoring some incredible interviews, was the reaction of seeing little girls stare in wonder. It is so amazing how powerful the image of Wonder Woman is. I never before realized how truly iconic her character was, until I had to don the silver bracelets and tiara and stand for pictures. I will not forget the look on the faces of the little girls today, it really moved me. It was like they were seeing their hero come to life from the pages and panels of the comic books they read, and I was truly honored to don the costume.

Not many press wore costumes, but I have to say that being in the minority, I loved it. It felt great to really get into the spirit of the convention, and to connect with fans just like me. I hope that for those of you that could not make it this year, my blogging inspires you to go. I am on my way to an Archaia party and will have plenty of pictures from tonight's event as well. Today's interviews will probably go up tomorrow so stay tuned!

Check out the day in twit-pics!

Mark Waid (Kingdom Come) moderates the Gail Simone (Wonder Woman) panel!

Dude, is that a real gun?!

Costume change!

Check out the sick Iron Man suits! Word.

First stop: Marvel booth for three interviews. Awesome way to kick start the day!

One hour before show time! Check out the masses!

Walking to the Convention Center!

Wow that's a great Mandalorian suit !

Man that sucks you walked in those heels all day. That place is like 3 football fields long, but hey it was worth it. Especially making the little girls happy to see their hero walking around.

I'll admit, I felt bad when I saw you had heels on when you posted the pictures on Twitter. That must have been hell. I hope to make it to a Con next year.
