The last two days were long and tiring, what with wading through the thick crowd of bodies on the convention floor of the San Diego Comic Con. Here are only a few of the shots I took. I’ll post more tomorrow.
We took a walk around San Diego’s Gas Lamp District adjacent to the convention center. As usual, the local retailers made the most of the Con with banners, posters, characters, decorations, and boosted retails prices to serve the 100,000+ attendees.
Preview Night used to the be a more relaxing and less crowded day. Now it seems to be one of the most crowded days of the Con. The crowds were thick and sweaty.
Hot Wheels had a large booth, complete with this Darth Vader-mobile. It was pretty cool.
Marky Ramone of The Ramones was at a table selling still-shots (at $30 a shot) of an animated scene from The Simpsons in which he made a guest appearance. Comic Con – where old rockers go to die.
