San Diego Comic-Con 2008, Day Two,

San Diego, CA.
Complete sensory overload compounded by unyielding waves of costumed humanity funneling themselves through row after row of vendors, mobbing displays containing everything imaginable from the worlds of Fantasy, Science-Fiction, Games, Toys, Posters, Books, Clothing, Jewelry, Art, Television, Movies and Comic Books. Presentations for every upcoming multimedia release and more promotional swag than you’ll ever know what to do with. And if you try to see it all in one day, you’ll go Mad.
I’m exhausted. I’ll just let the images do the talking. I seem to remember (in a foggy haze) that I hung out with TURA SATANA, star of one of my favorite films of all time: “FASTER PUSSYCAT, KILL! KILL!”, and she was really sweet. Didn’t dislocate my arm or anything. I also remember chatting with my favorite Mex Cartoonist from MAD MAGAZINE, SERGIO ARAGONÉS. The rest is all a blur of Pikachus and brightly colored Spandex Nalgas. Oh yeah, and hundreds of dollars are also now gone from my wallet and my hotel room looks like Sci-Fi Santa was here. I leave you all for now, enjoy the images. Alas, It’s harsh to be the one to sacrifice myself here in order to report all of these amazing Comic Con happenings to all of you LAEASTSIDE readers………live through me!
