Comic Con - Thursday Report

The people are arriving. Today was much more crowded than yesterday and I expect the crowd to build dramatically tomorrow. 

I purchased the Boilerplate book and Mouse Guard book 1 and I got some sketches.

There are still far fewer costumes than last year, but maybe they will arrive over the weekend, we are still not in full swing yet.

Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker and Karl Urban joined RED graphic Novel writer Warren Ellis onstage to rile the crowd up in support of the movie, RED. RED stands for Retired Extremely Dangerous. Willis was surprisingly soft spoken in contrast to his ofttimes wise-cracking onscreen performance. Helen Mirren was very funny and wore a shirt honoring the late Harvey Pekar.

Battle: Los Angeles, a SF thriller was on hand as well, supported by Director Jonathan Liebesman, and actors Aaron Eckhart and Michelle Rodriguez.

 For some reason Pauly Shore was on the main floor of the big hall being interviewed by Telemundo.
