ComicCon is Here!

Comic Con International started tonight with Preview Night, with definitely the biggest turnout for preview night I've seen. Tons of people are trying to get to that special booth for a freebie or exclusive or tickets to a screening. There was definitely more stuff going on this preview night with lots of signings at the comics booths and more of the exhibitors doing the exclusives and freebies. I spent most of the night checking booths, grabbing some exclusives and freebies and trying to track down signing information for some of the booths. I did get a chance to chat with some of the artists on hand including Charles Vess, Brian Froud and Kinuko Y. Craft and got some stuff signed by Warren Ellis. I'm glad I did the CBLDF VIP package for the Stardust screening. When Paramount handed out regular passes they were gone in just a couple of minutes.

Biggest bag award goes to Warner Bros for their gigantic Smallville/Doomsday bags.

MGM has buses decorated with stuff for their shows, including this one for Stargate SG-1.
Other busses have ads for Dead Like Me promoting a new direct to DVD movie that I hadn't heard anything about.
