Last Wednesday morning, I left for San Diego Comic-Con. I was there until Sunday night and continued working on assignments through Monday morning. Here’s my reporting and photos, all of which appeared in L.A. Weekly.
I interviewed Grant Morrison by phone a few weeks ago about his departure from Batman and his upcoming project, which happens to involve my all-time favorite superhero. The story ran as a preview to Comic-Con.
Thrilling Adventure Hour is a popular theater show in Los Angeles that is based on old fashioned radio drama. The writers, Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, were at Comic-Con in part to promote their forthcoming TAH comic book. It’s a great read and features a number of characters that you’ll recognize from the stage show and podcast.
Regular Show took over the New Children’s Museum, which is across the street from the San Diego Convention Center, for Comic-Con. I got to check out the exhibit, called Regular Zone, with show creator J.G. Quintel.
I’m a longtime fan of Emily the Strange and recently donated to a Kickstarter campaign to turn Emily and friends into an animated band. Part of my pledge package was VIP entry into the premiere of the video at Comic-Con. I wrote about this experience as well.
There’s something that I often think is missing from Comic-Con coverage. I tried to capture that spirit in this post.

I have some personal writing from Comic-Con that I’ll be posting on my blog, Beatique, later this week. Stay tuned.
