Comic-Con 2008!

My 12-year-old daughter and I went to Comic-Con on Thursday, July 24. It was extremely crowded, but still ended up being a lot of fun. The main event for me was the Stan Lee-Grant Morrison panel where they talked about their projects for Virgin Comics (actually, Stan only said that he couldn't talk about his projects with Virgin until later in the fall after Virgin makes an official announcement. Grant was able to talk about his project [a motion-capture video about an Indian myth for the Virgin website] because it's close to completion). The main event for my daughter was the Summit Entertainment presentation for three of their films- "Push", "Knowing", and most importantly to my daughter and thousands of other tweens and teens, "Twilight", based on the series of novels by Stephanie Meyer (my daughter read all three books in a week). The exhibition floor was always packed, and every vendor ran out of the good giveaways after the first hour. Nevertheless, it was worth doing, but so completely exhausting that I can't imagine attending all four days except in small doses.
