What updates did we get today?
We got in the mood for the Rogue cut of X-Men, thanks to the above clip.
We got another brief article on the hotel room issue. If you're curious: "last year, hotels committed 56,600 discounted hotel room nights but Comic-Con could easily fill twice that."
We also got a Fear The Walking Dead teaser and saw a poster that took me a good 2 minutes to understand. Apparently it's supposed to indicate the zombie drag/shuffle.
More importantly, we found out Conan's SDCC Guests:
Weds, 8 July - Elijah Wood and Chris Hardwick
Thursday, 9 July - The Hunger Games cast
Friday, 10 July - The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones cast
Saturday, 11 July - Secret surprise guests. Probably with an S in the title.
io9 did a "What I'm Looking Forward to at Comic-Con" post but it was surprisingly generic.
We saw (ok, a few days ago) these Jem & the Hologram fashion dolls.
In the category of sentences you never thought you'd read, Grant Morrison announced his upcoming Santa Claus comic from Boom! Since he has 2 panels to himself, maybe he'll expound on that.
More SDCC exclusive Magic: The Gathering cards will be afoot. So will these Four Horseman's Raven figures.
Future Con alert: Sandman, Preacher and a bunch of other Vertigo properties got shuffled between studios; it's unclear yet what this means for timelines. Oh, and Spider-Man will mine the high school angst of John Hughes movies.
Metallica's Kirk Hammett loves SDCC so much that he's returning again to sell little green action figures and do signings. No secret show, though.
Syfy is going to grace you with swag, but you have to work for it. You have to track down the Midas street team who will be roaming the area and see if they'll give you:
- Dominion backpacks
- Dark Matter graphic novels
- Geeks Who Drinks temp tattoos
- Selfie sticks (careful!)
- Summer of Syfy sunglasses and buttons
- A photo of yourself wearing Dominion Angel Wings
- Killjoys Warrant Posters featuring yourself
Let's prepare for another action-packed day tomorrow.
56,600 hotel room night sounds somewhat impressive, until you divide by the 13 nights set aside per room and then get only 4,354 rooms. (still feeling bitter)ReplyDelete
That was my exact thought.Delete
