Comic-Con News!!! Jul. 22nd, 2004 @ 12:26 AM Reply

We got our booth set up and are ready for the first official day of Comic-con tomorrow! Tonight was pro-night, meaning everyone there was related to the industry (exhibitors with their friends & families).

Despite being only a taste of what the actual even will be like, tonight was a lot of fun! We had a constant flow of visitors playing Alien Hominid on the consoles, and sold some figurines and t-shirts.

The highlight of tonight was being visited by a fan who has followed the site since 1999. He is shipping out to Iraq soon, and brought me a military desert hat as a gift! That had to be one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me!

I'm excited to see what's in store for tomorrow. If you are in the San Diego area, Comic-con is at the San Diego convention center from Thursday through Sunday. We have playable builds of Alien Hominid, as well as figures and shirts for sale! Come and get 'em while you can! April and I personally folded, packed and tagged hundreds of shirts... It was insane.

I'll try to post pictures while I'm out here - I need to bring a cable over for my digital camera. I normally stay here in the office, but this time I'm in a hotel across from the convention center, so my internet access is more sparse. Updates to come!


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Oh...well Tom...try to take as many pics as possible :) We'll be waiting for them here...also, you should do a special section for this kind of stuff (Maybe at NG Mag) so you could post a lot of pictures there...

Good luck with the comic con :)

Wish I lived on the West coast instead of the East. I'd definitely try to make the trip in to meet you all.

Maybe they'll have something interesting in Florida soon!

You should really sell those t-shirts and figurines on a site where some of us we can't go there. I would like to get some of that stuff.

You missed Florida's interesting scene. I was down there about a month ago.

Yeah, I was hoping getting the first post would make me special. :o)
I wish I was in San Diego, too. It would be pretty cool to meet Tom and the crew! I'm stuck in Eastern Canada. =\

Hopefully, when the Comic-Con is over, there will be some new goodies in the store and some more contests. I can't go to this comic-con shindig. I'm all the way up in Spokane, Washinton. I haven't even gone past Oregon let alone go down to San Diego. Everything's always too far for me.


I suck.
