Comic-Con overview

As you can tell from the lack of detailed entries, I haven't exactly had a lot of free time at the show. Between meetings, filming, more meetings, and more filming, I've barely stopped to breathe. Today, though, it all comes to an end for another year. Interesting stuff this time around, as I got to say hello again to Thomas Jane, met Simon Pegg, and today will be meeting with both Grant Morrison and Deepak Chopra. By the way folks, definitely check out the interview we did with Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and Jessica Hynes for Spaced. I fed a great little joke to Vic in there for Simon referencing both Star Trek and Hot Fuzz. If you know me, you've probably heard it already, but the reaction was absolutely priceless.

As I've already alluded to (isn't that just a great word? Alluded?), aside from filming, most of my time has been taken up in meetings at the show. Found out a metric ass ton of information on future projects, in video games, comics, and in film. I'll be spending most of the week following up with people and hope to be able to tease some of you with more details soon.

Anyway, I'll try to write some more about the show later today or over the week. Right now, I'm getting all packed up, as I check out of the hotel this morning before hitting the show. Then it's a red-eye from San Diego back to Jax, so I can start the work week off bright and early tomorrow. I can already tell, the first order of business will be a fresh pot o' coffee.

Before I go, though, here are a few quick bullet points:

  • Heroes Season Three looks to be awesome
  • Activision's Ghostbusters game is a LOT of fun once you get the hang of it.
  • Konami's Rock Revolution? Not so revolutionary.
  • Be sure to check out NECA's toy line soon. Fans will be absolutely "Rabbid" for what's in store.
  • DC's line-up may look strongest right now, but Marvel may still have a few tricks up its sleeve next year.
  • Hollywood has MORE than its share of geeks ... Kevin Spacey, Milo Ventimiglia, Dennis Miller, Sam Raimi ... that's right folks, screw the Skrulls, we're the REAL "Secret Invasion"

Anyway ... I need to wrap this up. Gotta finish packing and get ready to leave. As always, more to come.
