  • Joe at San Diego Comic-Con

    I know a lot of people here might be making it to the San Diego Comic-Con and might be looking to get Joe to sign a few things (like their stack of script books). I thought it might be good to get a show of hands and see how many people from here are going. Maybe we can set up something with Joe for the script books. The normal autograph sessions will likely be pretty crowded with all the comics he has been producing of late.

    I'll be there. But since I'm flying all the way accross the country I'm restricting myself to one script book...if that. I'm actually heading off to Charlotte tonight on an impulse trip to Heroes con. Much easier to drag stuff by car than in luggage.

    But anyway, I'll be there for the entire show.

      I will be there too. The JMS signing line typically fills up fast so I suggest getting there early if possible. Last year his signing happened immediately after his talk which made it hard to show early if you wanted to attend the talk. Even so, I think it took less than an hour to get through the line.

        I was thinking of going, but find myself unable to make any day but Saturday--and I just heard he only has signing sessions Friday and Sunday! And I was going to bring my wheelbarrow of script books too...snif.

                    Since we have no idea what the project is, there's no good answer to that question and no sense speculating.

                        Umm...no. JMS can afford toys like that, not me (I *wish*). Now maybe our own DougO does? After all, I'm not the only one from here who'll be there.

                        JMS's spotlight is from 5-6:00 PM on Saturday so don't expect anything until then anyway.

                            on the subject of cats,
                            my (semi)cat has gone from scrawny, skittish stray to sitting reporochfuly on the dorstep/gardenwall,fron (upstairs) bedroom windowsill staring at me when I come in from work with a "where have you been" expression on her face" - looks quite reporchufly at me too.

                            "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "
