Tonight we'll be heading down to San Diego for the 2006 Comic-Con. I'll be roaming the floors on Saturday and Sunday to check out the latest in movies, video games, toys, art and comics! Sadly, I won't have much I-Mockery stuff on me this year because of the move to California and a complete lack of time to plan for the convention. I won't even be wearing the Pickle Hat, so it'll be harder for people to find me. Sure, I'll have a black I-Mockery logo shirt on, but there's more black shirts at the Comic-Con than there are grains of sand on Earth. So yeah, if you're going, good luck finding me. If you do, though, I'll hopefully have some stickers and buttons to give ya at least.
Speaking of finding me, an I-Mockery reader said they saw me driving with Re on Sunset Boulevard the other day. Pretty crazy considering it's such a huge city (and it's not like I was wearing the Pickle Hat).
So anyway, what stuff should I definitely check out at the 'con on Saturday and Sunday? Anything super-awesome that I should be aware of? Also, next year, I'm hoping to get a booth for I-Mockery since I'm sure I'll have plenty o' time to plan for it. I like thinking about all the crazy stuff we'd have going on at the booth... seems like it could be a lot o' fun.
EDIT: For those of you attending the Comic-Con this year, be sure to stop by the Young American Comics booth. They'll be selling copies of the newest "Big Ol' Book of BIZMAR" and yours truly has a comic in it that I did with Re. It's a fun book with some great artists who all contributed their own comics - over 75 stories combining Bunnies, Insects, Zombies, Monkeys, Aliens and Robots.
EDIT #2: Also be sure to stop by the Behemoh's booth. Not only will they be showing their awesometacular upcoming "Castle Crashers" game, but the Newgrounds sketchbook will be there for anybody who wants to read through it. And once again, yours truly made a contribution to it which you'll get to see.

Optimus Prime, the only thing you really NEED to see.
Ninjawolf (Guest) on 07/21/2006 2:08 pm
I would have said that too Daniel, but I heard that theres not going to be anything about the new Transformers Movie. But if he's there, do make sure to check him out for us. It better be the real Optimus too, not that fucking piece of shit one with flames.

I actually made a little tribute to the new Optimus Prime with the flames, or "Flamer Prime" as I prefer to call him.

I was wanting to go to Comic-Con to see the Kingdom Of Loathing booth and perhaps run into you, but those plans fell through. Oh well. Have fun, Rog.
If you do happen to see a booth with a sign that says "This game is worst than runescape", say hi to the hippie or bald guy sitting there for me.

Goin' to San Diego again RoG? Check out "The Field." It's a really cool Irish pub they got in the Gaslamp District in downtown SD.
They actually imported the facade and most of the interior from a previous bar IN Ireland. It's just a few blocks walking distance from the convention center. It's such a authentic Irish pub a leperchaun once came out from a door underneath the bar and kicked me in the nuts. Make sure you wear a cup when you go, just in case.

I was almost part of the sketchbook thing on NG :(
well, better luck next time.
Tell Tom Fulp I say hi :D

If you intending to get a booth, it's really hard (taken the sad tale from mega64 guys) becouse the guys who run it allways over book everything there. The sooner the better, plus make shure you pester them all the time. It's hard work but I know you can do it!

Peter Cullen, the original Optimus Prime, will do his voice again in the Transformers movie coming out next year! AUTOBOTS...ROLL OUT!
Guarmar (Guest) on 07/24/2006 5:34 am
no, xscoot, you were close the first time, buts spelled Gaylo.
AngryHydralisk (Guest) on 07/25/2006 6:20 pm
No actual-transforming Optimus Prime = cockblock of the year. Otherwise, the pictures of comic-con were Mohn-dooooooooooooooooh! Especially the Bison one...
Doctor dumbass (Guest) on 09/20/2006 5:29 pm
can you get that BIZMAR book in stores? i'm not a big fan of buying stuff on internet
ryan (Guest) on 01/04/2008 11:01 am
