Highlights From NY Comic Con 2008

This year at New York Comic Con, I had a clear plan. Get all my shopping out of the way early so I could go to as many panels as possible.

Here were the highlights:

  • The Battlestar Galactica panel was cool but I knew I was in trouble because I hadn’t watched Friday nights episode and had the ending ruined for me.
  • I saw two clips from Wall-E. This movie is going to be so good.
  • I saw one action sequence from The Incredible Hulk which, while I still don’t think it will be great, it will at least be entertaining
  • They also showed a clip of Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in The Incredible Hulk confirming that all the Marvel movies will take place in the same “universe”
  • Warner Brothers was a late addition to the event but they brought the new The Dark Knight trailer that is going to debut in front of Iron Man. Awesome. Really awesome.
  • Since I couldn’t see Neil Gaiman, my favorite writer, on Friday, seeing my second favorite writer, Grant Morisson, was just as good.
  • At The Spirit panel, Eva Mendes was gorgeous and really funny.
  • This is where I go every year to remind myself that I’m not as big a geek as I think I am.

The rest of my photos from Saturday are here.

  1. This year was my first time going to a convention surprisingly, as long as I’ve been reading comics. I pretty much expected to see some crazy shit. But what I actually saw went beyond that. A couple of friends of mine actually got to meet Grant Morrison before I got there.
