I wish the San Diego Comic Con apocalypse was nigh.

SDCC isn't a comic convention anymore. They should rename it the generic entertainment convention and leave comics out of it... much as they've done with the convention itself.

The SDCC is the Munich Oktoberfest for (pseudo)geeks.

Couldn't have gone, but some of those 'news' panels were a joke. It's like the panelists were told "You'll get $200,000 flat for appearing, but you lose $10,000 for every piece of real information you give out."

Comic books. Serious business. Especially the Grit ad on the last page.

Came for Unicron. Leaving satisfied.

Me: Galactus vs. Unicron? Who would win?
My Wife: Hmm. I'd have to go with Galactus. He's got helpers, like Silver Surfer, and Unicron got his ass beat by a bunch of Transformers.
Me: True, but Galactus has gotten beat by the Fantastic Four.
My Wife: They've got powers. The Transformers are just robots.
Me: Robots with big robot guns. That's a power.
My Wife: True...
Me: My answer is neither. Galactus consumes the life on a planet. Unicorn eats the planet. They team up!
My Wife(after a moment's thought): I hadn't considered that. That's very efficient, and makes sense.

Yeah, I married well.

I've been going since 1989 when they had it in just a couple of rooms at the old convention center, 24 years. Haven't missed a year, have all my badges, all my swag. I'll keep going until they move it out of San Diego.

/they see me rollin'
//they hatin'
///they did have better swag back in the day

Remember all those Star Trek / X-Men crossovers? At least two comics miniseries (one TOS, one TNG) and one novel (Planet X)?

To the best of my knowledge, none of them used what to me would've been the really obvious point of crossover:

Ever wonder about the Crystalline Entity in TNG? This vastly powerful cosmic being traveled from planet to planet, stripping them of their life energies, leaving them barren husks no longer capable of sustaining life. And, it retained the services of a normal-sized humanoid being (Lore) who sought out suitable planets for it, then summoned the Entity.

Sound familiar?

Galactus is Nigh!
/Available @ Comicon - own your own destroyer of worlds!*
*does not fit in pocket. you live on a planet, so if your Galactus eats it no refunds.**
**NO REFUNDS, MORTAL! - Galactus

Interesting take on the Destroyer of Worlds vs Monster Planet question:
CBUB

Wizard magazine once said that if Unicron = Galactus, then Cybertron Primus = Ego the Living Planet.

/wonders if Ego and Mogo ever get together to compare continent sizes.

When Comic-Con is ashes, you have my permission to die.

I wonder how many "articles" there are floating around about the geeks/nerds at Comic-Con and making fun of them.
LOL, look at those dorks and their comics. Get a life, losers.
