perhaps the last of the 2006 comic con reports

hazzah! jen finally offloaded our vacation photos so i snagged a bunch of the ones she took during comic con. i’ve decided that next time i do post something like this, i’m signing up for a flickr account.


the convention center!

view of half the convention center. the comic con took up most of the whole building.

view from the convention center. that bridge is pretty scary to drive on.

IMG_1076.JPG

this guy cleared out the whole top floor! i didn’t think he was that scary…

IMG_1072.JPG

…until i got captured!!! oh no!

the comic con!

there i am in my brown shirt, staring up at things in awe. that was pretty much what i was doing the entire time i was there.

the statues!

yes!

IMG_1129.JPG

this was my favorite of the statues we saw. it was just so ridiculously well done.

IMG_1126.JPG

of course, jen took her time around the harry potter section.

the panels!

the scott mccloud panel was insane. this guy just teleported into the room right in front of us! scott was just exercising his geniousness with a, “yeah, so besides reinventing comics i’m also inventing new ways of travel” as he explained the ways to make his travel time quicker during his fifty state tour.

IMG_1083.JPG

..to which his wife replied, “he’s crazy!”

IMG_1081.JPG

up close with lisa henson, brian froud and genndy tartakovsky duriing the dark crystal panel:

not so close up at the lost panel (but still pretty close considering amount of people in this room!):

IMG_1179.JPG

that’s hurley and jin there with damon lindelof in the center:

IMG_1183.JPG

the flight crew getting ready. too many to name.

IMG_1185.JPG

but i’ll mention jeff smith because he’s my hero (there in the pony tail).

IMG_1186.JPG


the costumes!

doug tennapel was cross-dressing as the invisible woman.
it was creepy.

IMG_1095.JPG

we later found him out of costume though. that’s jen getting a catscratch drawing from him.

IMG_1100.JPG

don’t know who this is but she looks cool.

IMG_1119.JPG

so many star wars people…

that scarecrow is hillarious!

IMG_1142.JPG

meanwhile…

IMG_1121.JPG

elvis stormtrooper and buddy christ, together again. only at comic con.

IMG_1195.JPG

this is pretty funny. joe got his picture taken with this guy too- the same day before we even met up with each other.

IMG_1150.JPG

the costume people were so funny. whenever jen would ask if she could take a picture of them, they would go into total serious mode.

IMG_1204.JPG

jen and i loved these last two:

IMG_1146.JPG

IMG_1132.JPG

my friend dan isn’t in costume. he really is a member of team zissou.

IMG_1118.JPG

his bright orange hat came in handy when we were walking around with him. here’s a where’s waldo type picture. can you find dan?

IMG_1187.JPG

and there you have it. didn’t take as many picture as we probably should’ve. we were to busy having fun talking to people and buying stuff. next time we’ll have to bring video!
