Rod wrangles the teeming hordes of Thomas Jane fans for us. His signings in our booth caused a bit of a traffic jam. (Ok, MORE than a bit, there was a whole security contingent issued to sort the mayhem.)
I am averaging about one post a decade at this pace. Let’s relive the magic and splendor of Comic Con with the belief that if a picture tells a thousand words, you are about to experience a million word essay!
It is always magical to see Brian Froud and his wife Wendy, the artists who created the visuals for The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. (Photo taken by Dave McKean, director of MirrorMask, the third of the three Jim Henson fantasy films.)
Jim Rose (holding up a vintage poster for his Circus) is right: San Diego Comic Con is full of the strangest things one will EVER see...
An example of the aforementioned insanity... From Art Nouveau... to LEGOs! In only twenty paces!
Because Michaelanne LOVES "CHiPs"! Her first celebrity connection at Comic Con? Erik Estrada!
Melissa auf der Maur (Hole, Smashing Pumpkins, Rufus Wainwright) was lovely... I suspect that her aura is a Heavy Metal loving teenage boy spinning a Pre-Raphaelite dream.
MAdM and Lee Moyer signed a poster for her "Out of Our Minds" environmental music and film Friday and Saturday.
I can't believe that the League of Steam convinced Gail Potocki and Stuart to do a circle of electrocution...
But then I shouldn't be surprised that Holistic Health Maven and Consistent Overachiever Stuart did it TWICE.
As much as Michaelanne loves Erik Estrada, it doesn't come close to how much Gail Potocki LOVES Paul Komoda!!! Here she is with his pendant "The Kiss".
And before we knew it, it was midnight on Sunday. The neckties came off, and after hours of blood and falling timbers the truck was packed full of Art Nouveau goodness.
Thanks also to Steve Diet Goedde, who also signed in our booth but is strangely absent from photos! The curse of the photographer, I suppose…
