San Diego Comic Con: First Night!

Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

What  a crazy night! I think I got four hours of sleep last night, but it's all good and I am totally ready for day two!
 
After we got back to our hotel from the Convention Center, we managed to get an hour of rest, and tons of video interviews compressed and ready to go up today. I took a quick shower, then headed off to a private Archaia Comics party in downtown San Diego. I met some incredible people out showing their support for 'Days Missing,' the latest comic from Archaia. When the open bar closed, it was time to move down the street to one of the hotels and meet up with some awesome creators. I shared a drink (granted it was non-alcoholic) with writer/artist Ben Templesmith, Archaia director Stephen Christy, and Marvel writer Jim McCann. We hopped a cab shortly afterward and came back to our hotel to catch a glimpse at all the compressed footage. I must say, I dug it, and I hope you do too. Can't wait for everything to go up tonight!
 
Don't forget Comic Vine's big get together tonight at the Marriott's very special 'Altitude Lounge' tonight at 9. Hope to see you there!

I think it would be hilarious and fun as hell to see (Or be with) a bunch of people dressed as comic characters completely s-faced.

Oh god it'd be a real life (albeit uglier) version of Herogasm

I knew that was her! I should have said something....

Someone posted the link up in this story over at Giant Bomb for the picture, which made those of us who visit Comic Vine (even though I just now finally set up an account today) giggle a little.  Give the credit to Mercanis over at GB.  He's the man hunting down the links.  I'm just relaying the message and saying "awesome coverage and way to get noticed by another big name website" to Comic Vine.  Seriously...the interview with Mark Waid had me grinning from ear to ear.

Now, I've gotta go hit up that Blackest Night spoiler thread!!!

Huh, must have missed that thread. Kudos to that dude. Happy to see that CV/GB relations seem to be improving after the initial.....unpleasantness.

And get yer damn Viewtiful Joe avatar over here already man! You don't seem complete without it :l
