San Diego Comic-Con 2008: pictures + video

Not really any reason to wait posting these; here's a little video of the San Diego Comic-Con 2008 with some of its 150,000 visitors. And a few clips of our time spent running Small Press booth M10.

I probably got a 1/16 of the show here. I walked from the middle to one end of the main floor. To get from one end, tag that wall and make your way to the opposite wall took about 30 minutes. Or more, maybe. Sure there were a ton people but it was also a massive place.

Also be on the look out for a few famous faces in the video below. They're labeled. Except the one at 2:05. See if you know him.



Also, if any one has any tips for making the YouTube video have better quality I'd love to know them.

Donato Giancola's demo. Stunning.

Kitty, our Can-Asian (Asian-Canadian) friend helped us set up t-shirts and build card houses out of our give-away postcards.

She also scored Justin and I free tickets to a pre-release showing of Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder. Get some!

It was a great convention, one of the best I think, although the 2010 was also pretty darn good, Im waiting for the 2012 edition.
