Comic-Con Pics 4

Subtle, no. True, yes.

Really, this sums up Comic-Con perfectly (and I didn't want to end on a photo of yet another line).

Comic-Con Pics 4

Another thing to take pictures of every year are the celebrities (or "celebrities" in some cases) that are there to form lines around. So, here are a bunch.

Michael Hogan and James Callis from "Battlestar Galactica."

Adam Baldwin.
James Cameron.
The creepiest ever Hayao Miyazaki photo (unintentional).
"Dollhouse" cast members Eliza Dushku, Fran Kranz, Dichen Lachman, and Enver Gjokaj.
Doug Bradley.
Robert Picardo.
Nicole DeBoer.
Jasika Nicole, John Noble, and Josh Jackson from "Fringe."
Zack Snyder.
Kevin Sorbo.
"True Blood"'s Deborah Ann Woll, Sam Trammell, and novelist Charlaine Harris.
Margot Kidder.
The normally much less wacky Brian Cox.
The normally much more wacky John Lasseter.
Danny DeVito.
That American guy from "Torchwood."
Michelle Forbes and "True Blood" creator Alan Ball.*

Joshua Jackson and Anna Torv.
Joss Whedon and Eliza Dushku.
Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin.
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Nichelle Nichols (I'm not sure, my pic was pretty bad).
Mark Hamill and Paul Dini.
Leonard Nimoy.
Jim Cameron and Sigourney Weaver.

*Which I wrote here just to infuriate my pal Jeff. If the TV show is based on a series of novels, but you didn't write the novels, are you really the show's creator?

The outlandish and/or great costumes are usually a big thing to take pictures of at the San Diego Comic-Con. Here are a handful.

The photo doesn't really do justice to how much the guy on the left actually looked like the current Doctor Who.

Except for the hair, this guy had a great Lt. Commander Data costume I've ever seen. Oh, and the eyes.
And the skin color.
And the uniform.

Comic-Con Pics 2

This is a typical sight on the San Diego streets every July.
I've now gone to Comic-Con enough times you'd think I'd know my way around and not get lost, say, three of the four days I was there. But ah well.

San Diego has a specific geography, and it should be obvious where North, South, West, and East are. Yet somehow I still fail to grasp that.
I was hoping that with Obama in the White House our nation's racial mentality would have improved.

But no, this poor family was quickly escorted out.
And there goes his plausible deniablity.

It ain't always about logic

When I saw Leonard Nimoy stand up to autograph a woman's breast, well . . . I just had to take a picture.
It's certainly not something I see every day, but then, I don't get out much.

Comic-Con Pics 1

So, I went to the San Diego Comic-Con once again this year. I guess it's no secret what an unhappy, lonely, aimless geek I am, so it can't hurt to say that I was looking forward to it pretty much the whole of 2009.

Speaking of lonely, is it wrong that I sort of found this girl attractive?

Not to sound repetitive, but . . .
You know what they say about strangers with candy.
This life-sized movie Bumblebee was a) cooler, and b) had more personality than the one in Michael Bay's movies.

Hell, this one too.

These lil Clone Troopers didn't quite make me stop hating the Prequels, but they came close.

This was, apparently, the actual fertility idol used in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK.

And this is one of those high-priced replicas. Funny how this one looks genuine and the actual prop doesn't.
