Comic-Con, Day 4 (The Last Day)

Sunday, July 26

This day was a sad day, cause it was the last. But we lived it up and got a couple last minute deals and some more free stuff. It was another great day and lots of fun. We only went to one panel and half of the one before it to get good seats...

11-11:30am The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd
I still have no idea what this was, but I won all six seasons of it on CD from a raffle that they had. So I'll have to check it out...

11:30-12:30pm Spotlight on David Petersen
This was a pretty cool panel . For those who don't know who this is or don't even read comics, this is the comic for you!! David Petersen writes a comic called Mouse Guard. Not only does he write it, but he does the pencils (draws it) and does the colors. He also started on his own without a publisher and is a self-made success. Something that doesn't happen often in comics. Apart from that, his story is one that can be enjoyed by all. An awesome story with some great art! It is one that I'll read to my kids (when I have them). Great panel and we got a cool print of the new story line that he'll be starting next year. I got a poster signed by him and so did Amanda, we both got our print for the new story line signed, and I got his new book signed (last year I got his first book signed). Plus I got some little statuettes of the characters from the first book! Here are the links to book 1 and book 2.

Some other cool things happened that day, like we went by the DC booth to see what was going on and we ran into this guy:

For those who don't know who this is, this is Geoff Johns, I mentioned him in my post the other day about Blackest Night, he's the writer of it and has been writing Green Lantern for four years now. He has done a lot of good stuff and is an amazing writer. Anyways, like I said, we were just walking through the DC booth and there he was, not at a table or anything, just standing around with a fan or two. So I got this picture with him and had him sign one of the Superman comics he wrote that I happened to be carrying 'cause I bought it that day. How cool?!

Sidenote: For anyone who enjoys a good read, some of the best writers today are in comics...

Later on that day we went to the DC booth and Amanda and I both got free Black Lantern rings! Anyways, that's all I can remember about Sunday. And i'm pretty sure that that covers most of it. Amanda and I had such a good time. She bought her first graphic novel and wants to do the whole thing again next year. I do too of course so we look forward to that. Love'd it.
