After making my way through hordes of people and loads o' highway traffic,
I've returned from the San Diego Comic-Con 2006 in one piece. While I was
only able to attend the convention for 2 days this year, Saturday &
Sunday, it still proved to be plenty of time to check out the entire
exhibit floor madness along with all of the costumes people were wearing.
Last year I shared about 90 photos with you over the course of four days,
this year I've almost doubled that number in only two days. How that
happened, I do not know. I guess having more memory cards helped.
Disclaimer time: the
Comic-Con is absolutely massive, and no words can really do it justice...
you simply have to go and experience it all for yourself. The following pages are my best attempt at capturing many of
the sights that there were to see at the convention for those of you who were
unable to attend. I hope they're as fun for you guys to look at as they
were for me to see in person! Keep in mind, these pics are in no
particular order... I'm just unloading 'em all on you along with a few
comments about each one. Now chow down on all these delicious photos!

Goddamnit, she wasn't selling any girl scout cookies.
Somebody save these Domo-Kun's from suffocating in plastic bags!
Dragon Ball Zzzzzz.
It quickly got a lot more crowded. A LOT more.
I wonder what Wonder Woman would have wondered about this wonderful woman?
The fast food wars just got much more awesometastic!
This guy was the keymaster and his key must open a huge friggin' door.
(Probably the one for the fire extinguisher back at our hotel.)
Warriors! Come out to Play-eee-aaaay! The figures looked
Baseball Furies rule!
For a king who could easily command his minions to do a bootstomp dance on
in a heartbeat, Maddox was easily one of the nicest guys I've met.
Buy his book!
(and his comic book too if you ever get the chance.)
If I only had one eye, I'd cover my face and wear a monocle and a top hat
Just for kicks.
Jerry Robinson, creator of the Joker. A comic art legend indeed!
This nifty piece of art almost makes me want to see a Goonies cartoon.
This animated Kingdom of Loathing display was mesmerizing. I stole your accordion.
