Wonder Con 2011 Report!

It really should be named Claustrophobiacon.

I'm not even kidding.

This is my second year attending Wonder Con, a comic book convention in San Fran for those that don't know.

I was looking for the Bengali thundercats statue, but I didn't see it. I didn't see ANY Thundercats statues. Not Cheetara, not Lion-O, not Mumm-Ra, NOTHING! I was pissssssed.

I did, however, find the CUTEST original artwork of a bunch of 80s cartoon villains celebrating a birthday party. Oh my god, I squeed a little bit. It was ADORABLE.

I only spent about 50 dollars, including the pass for the train and food, which I'm a little miffed about, but at the same time I realize that, hey, that's more money that I can spend at another time, which is a good thing. I didn't get the artwork, since I didn't get to go back into the room one more time before we left, but girltype is going to pick it up for me, cuz she's win like that.

We went to a panel for the upcoming movie Immortals, because Kellan Lutz was going to be there and we wanted to see Twihards go batshit crazy. Alas, because he was filming Twilight, he couldn't make it. MOTHER FUCKING TWILIGHT! It still managed to entertain the HELL out of us because Tarsim Singh, the director, is quite possibly the FUNNIEST panelist EVER!!!

I really wish the place was a lot less crowded. I can DEAL with crowds pretty well, most of the time (hello, Disneyland!), but a crowd like that? I HATE IT. Everything is super intensely crowded and it's impossible to go into the booths. All it really does is reaffirm my utter and complete lack of desire to EVER attend San Diego Comic Con. I'm sure it is 1000000000 times better, but it's also 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times crazier, and I don't want to deal with that.

my high school friend was there, too - he's an amazing artist and inks all sorts of comics. Maybe you've heard of him.. chris mitten?

Can't say that I do know of him...

I did walk around artist alley, though.

oh well, it would've been cool if you did.

btw did you hear brothers & sisters might not get renewed? very sad.

I figured that it might not, with more emphasis on the not.

Today they're not even SHOWING IT. They're showing Dana Delany's new show instead.

It DOES suck, I will miss my Walkers.

I've always thought ABC treated it badly - they advertise the hell out of DH and don't even mention B&S .. which, personally, I think is the better show.

they do the same thing with private practice, which is an amazing show. This week, they didnt even show scenes from the next episode, they showed scenes from the next greys!!

DH has a way bigger built in fanbase, though. It's still at least a top 20 show, I think it's still top 10 (low top 10, but still). Brothers and sisters is BARELY top 50.

By this point, the only people who stick with those shows are the ones who are hardcore fans. Like you and me.

We be there til the bitter end!
