This could be you! Dinosaurs Attack Comic-Con!
You too could be mauled by a dinosaur at Comic-Con!

It's time to get nerdy once again! The car is all loaded up and we're ready to head down to the 2011 San Diego Comic-Con for I-Mockery's third time as an exhibitor! I hope you can come visit us at the convention in our new location (Booth #E10 - near Aisles 600 & 700 - here's a map) because we've got lots of fun stuff to show ya this year! Here's some of what you can expect to see:

-Free Abobo masks for anybody who tries out the game! Now your face can be as beautiful as Abobo!

-Free Abobo buttons for people who manage to defeat one of the big new bosses!

-For the first time ever, all three 8-bit pixel posters will be available including the new Halloween one!

-A limited edition t-shirt from Re!

-Free gory "Dinosaur's Attack" trading cards with every purchase! (this site is old as a dinosaur, so why not?)

and of course...

-I-Mockery Pickle Hats! (while supplies last)

I-Mockery will be landing at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con this July! Hope you'll be showing up too!

As always, we had an absolute blast last year, so I can't wait to head on down to the convention and get started. It's too much fun meeting longtime fans of the site along with all the new ones. We've put a ton of work and cash into making this happen once again this year, and it's all because want to celebrate the 13+ years this site has been online with the fans that have kept us going! So, if you're going to be at the Comic-Con, be sure to stop by I-Mockery Productions Booth #E10 - near Aisles 600 & 700! (here's a map to our booth)

Myself, Re, and Nick (programmer of the Abobo game) will all be there at the table this year. And yes, to those of you who've asked in the blog and via email, we'll be more than happy to sign anything you buy (or any other weird things you bring to the convention for us to sign). We'll even sign your face if you remember to bring it with you.

For those of you who can't come, we're sorry you're gonna miss it, but rest assured we'll still do our best to take as many photos of the convention as possible like we do every year. Obviously, we're gonna be super-busy with the booth, but once I'm back in town from Comic-Con, I'll try to post up all those photos as quickly as possible. I'll also try to update the I-Mockery blog and Facebook page with some photos each day if time permits.

Again, for those of you who've never been, I feel I need to once again remind you of a very important fact: despite the misleading name, the Comic-Con has MUCH more than just comic books. True, if you're a fan of comic books, you'll be in heaven, but if you're not that into 'em, there's still PLENTY for you to do. Over the years, the convention has basically become a mega-media event. The convention center is chock full o' the latest video games for you to test out, tons of movie promotions, toys galore, incredible costumes, and some truly amazing artists as well. If anything, comics have taken a backseat to all the other crazy things going on at the convention. So yeah, the name is really misleading to some people, and that's unfortunate because they have no idea what they're missing out on.

Can you handle the awesome power of Abobo? You'll have your chance to prove it at I-Mockery's Comic-Con booth!

Be sure to keep an eye on the I-Mockery Facebook and I-Mockery Twitter pages throughout the week. I'm gonna be super busy, but I'll do my best to update them from Comic-Con whenever I have a chance.

Alright, that's all for now. Wish us luck, cuz this is gonna be one hell of an insane week... again!

If you want to relive the Comic-Cons of yesteryear, here's a look at just some of our huge photo galleries: [2010] [2009] [2008] [2007] [2006] [2005]



Our New 8-Bit Halloween Pixel Print From The Crazy 4 Cult Show!

After making tons of great suggestions, you guys waited a while to see how our new 8-bit Halloween print would turn out. Well my friends, the wait is over. This past Friday night, the print made its debut at Gallery 1988's fifth annual "Crazy 4 Cult" show along with some amazing cult film pieces by other artists, and now it's your turn to see what it looks like. Behold:

Limited edition 8-bit Halloween pixel print now available at Gallery 1988!

This is the high quality 8-bit Halloween giclée print (limited to 50 signed & numbered pieces) and Gallery 1988 has put some of them up on their web site for sale so those of you who couldn't make it to the Crazy 4 Cult show can still get them. You can order the 8-bit Halloween prints here while they remain in stock. And don't worry, for those of you who can't afford the archival print, we will have the standard pixel posters coming out in the not too distant future as well.

I'm extremely happy with how this one turned out. There are so many references crammed into it and you guys already know that Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I think it's safe to say that this one is my favorite of the three pixel prints we've done so far. I hope you all love it as much as I do and thanks again to all of you who made suggestions for the print. Please drop a comment below and lemme know what ya think!

And now we start making our final preparations for the San Diego Comic-Con, including getting the full version of Abobo's Big Adventure ready for all to play. July is always one hell of a busy month, but a fun one too.
