Picture three is from My Little Pony? Is the writer making a joke or is there a darker, violent side to MLP?

mikieb: Picture three is from My Little Pony? Is the writer making a joke or is there a darker, violent side to MLP?


I'm guessing the guy with the costume was asked what it was from and he was trolling the guy.

I don't do conventions. I'm not a fan of large crowds of people and loud voice feedback cycles. I also don't do pleb shopping venues on Saturday afternoons for the same reason.

Also, after the fourth slide with a flash ad (blocked) I quit. Considering the third one wasn't a chick and the fourth was celebs.

Judging from some of the other cutlines, I'm going with "talking out his/her ass."

This. This is what you get when you send a fool to cover a convention. "I'm not going to bother with the nutcases and the geeks - it's the celebrities about which I shall report! The others? Pfah! I'll take a few pictures of the unwashed masses, caption them with whatever I can think of, and they will just have to like it. Damned nerds."

After they showed the pic of Jack Black in in a mask it makes me think that something like Comic-Con would be a great for geeky celebrities to get dressed up and hang out w/o being hassled.

Bonus would be if they happen to have played a sci-fi character before and then dress up like that character and see if you can win a look alike contest.

It might be fun to have a police scanner /or net feed for the area while all the cops and security people are trying to do their thing.  "Hey, Lou?  What's the code for an assault by a guy dressed like Batman?  A 10-178?  No, that's not it..."

Except for some of the fans dressing up as comic-book characters, you wouldn't think Comic Con had anything to do with comics.

It doesn't...most don't even look at the actual comics there.
It's everything about the comics...

And it's a wonderful thing.
If I wanted to look at comics, I'd go to my local store or con.

For the price of going...I want WOW...and they give it.

Well, to be fair, most comics can be found for a dollar or less on the 'net. Unless vendors have quarter boxes or something filled with good shiat, it would be pointless to actually buy comics.

If it makes you feel better, think of any popular sci fi or fantasy franchise and google it with the word comic. There will be one.

I was actually thinking that subby has a strange definition of "girl".

Isn't this about the 3rd or 4th greenlight of comic con attendees playing dress up?

Why can't there be just one collection with only the hot ones?

Comic Con is basically an A-list celebrity event now.  Can't argue with a free trip to San Diego

It seems more like it's become a catch all for scifi fandom (with doses of other pop culture that tend to appeal to the geeky crowd, even if it isn't scifi).

A fan dressed up as a Trojan soldier must have been working on his costume for months -- just check out those washboard abs!

As someone who still buys comics once in a while, I'd like to know where you're buying your dollar comics on the net.  Well, maybe if all you want to buy is crap, then yes, you're correct, but back issues of anything interesting still cost more than that.  It's not a "collector's mentality," if I want old books or CDs or anything of value it's gonna cost, and it's sometimes better to be able to inspect the merchandise before buying it.

I've been burned many times buying comics online - I've bought comics that came to me with pages missing or the staples ripped through, and good luck trying to return them (the cost/shipping ratio becomes a problem).

/On a side note, my wife's film won "Best Documentary" over the weekend, which was the real highlight for me.
//Haven't been in 10 years - sure has changed.

Thanks for the info because we all care so deeply. Keep us informed of other things you don't do ok?

1) I farking hate Jamie Foxx. Everything about that man is vile.

2) Pregnancy knocked Kristen Bell down a few notches.

3) Is Gillian Anderson some type immortal? She keeps getting hotter the older she gets.

Hugh Jackman claims he went out on the convention floor in full Wolverine regalia. Says he got a "nice try" and not a whole hell of a lot else.
