San Diego Comic Con 2009!
For anyone who doesn't know, this week there is a comic book convention in San Diego. Check that, THE comic book convention is San Diego. What started out as a simple comic book convention, has turned into the sci-fi geek event of the year! Every movie studio is there showing exclusives. Every video game company is there showing the best of the best. If you want to promo anything in pop culture, this is where you go. Sadly, I am not there...AGAIN. But there are lots of people reporting and tweeting and taking tons of pics and writing blogs about their time there.
But besides the buzz and hype the real focus is on comics. This is where comic book characters become big summer blockbusters! Who knows what crazy mutant or super hero will become the next 'Batman' or 'Superman''s I, II, III, etc. I don't. But it's very fun to watch the madness unfold!
Here is the official website.
Here is the unofficial history from Wikipedia.
Here are some great pics from Marvel!
