Did you catch everything from #ComicCon this year? The San Diego fest had fewer headliners, but that didn't mean it skimped on surprises. Here were some of our favorites. 1/ wired.trib.al/PozrRRz #SDCC #SDCC2019
Trailers, trailers, trailers. From Tom Cruise to Jessica Chastain to a new Sarah Connor, this year’s sequels are getting an upgrade. 2/ wired.trib.al/ZCtOps7 #SDCC2019 #ComicCon
But wait, there’s more. ‘Westworld’ and ‘Watchmen’ teased their next installments, and the new shows ‘Snowpiercer’ and ‘Star Trek: Picard’ hinted at what’s to come in their first trailers. 3/ wired.trib.al/MDghah7 #SDCC2019 #ComicCon

Hollywood #GODZILLA and Japan GODZILLA To Evolve Together Says Godzilla Strategic Conference Head PM, Akito Takahashi--

TOHO's Akito Takahashi says "the company, which licenses its characters and consults on the Legendary films, is happy with the westernized blockbusters." PT1
(Continuing) -- ""We love the Hollywood Godzilla, we think it's really an honor that they wanted to sort of remake their Hollywood version," Takahashi says. "It's so different. We're going to continue that branding and that type of Godzilla universe to expand even more. " PT2
(Continuing) -- "However, the Japanese Godzilla has 29 movies that have already come out. It's a very specific type of Godzilla universe, so we're probably going to see both of them sort of evolving as we go. We just love that there's two sides of Godzilla." --Part 3 #GODZILLA

I am awake on day two of #SDCC, which is going to be...very busy.
10am panel (MAGIC x MAYHEM), 11:30am signing, 1pm signing, 3pm signing, DRINK!
Please come to my things today so my publishers continue to like me. My 3pm signing is in-booth at Marvel (first. time. EVER.) and @AgentM only puts up with me because I'm cute.

A man just called to tell me he'd bought my SDCC badge from a resale site. Apparently the badge came with enough information to track down my personal phone number. I feel...very safe.
Between the theft (because the reseller stole my badges out of the mail), and now the apparent data breach, fuck this week.
In case you want to go to #SDCC in the future, remember that all badges have RFID chips embedded in them: when you buy a badge from a reseller, odds are good the owner (me) has reported it missing. It's dead.

Since @stclairashley and @stillgray showed interest, and @JackPosobiec is interested in Comicon, here's a thread about my experiences about #SDCC and how it's changed over the past 25 years.
A bit of background: I've been going to #SDCC for the past 20-25 years or so. Much more so in the past 10, once I decided to write @Inferno_LA . I've also been a patron of @MeltdownComics which has come and gone in these past 25 years.
I bring up Meltdown because it's birth and demise in that time period explain what's happened - how comics have gone from a rebellious subculture, to being appropriated by major film and TV companies, to the original creative cuture being choked by its own weight.

All right: let's take a moment to talk about reading the room, and how not to promote yourself at conventions. A few disclaimers before we begin:
1. This was sparked by a specific incident. I will not be naming the person involved, because they weren't malicious, just a little purposefully clueless. PUA techniques don't get you a girlfriend and they don't get you a project collaborator.
2. The fact that this was sparked by a specific incident doesn't mean that it was a UNIQUE incident. This is something I've seen enough to become very frustrated by it.

Today's #Supernatural #ComicCon press room included #JensenAckles, #JaredPadalecki, #MishaCollins and #AlexanderCalvert along with executive producers Andrew Dabb, Bob Singer, Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming. #SPNSDCC #SDCC2018 #SPNFamily #SPN
Dabb: The theme last year was putting the family back together. Now the family is together, but Dean is missing and Dean is the rock that holds them together. #Supernatural #ComicCon #SPNSDCC #sdcc2018 #SPNFamily #DeanWinchester
Dabb: Dean as Micheal is the major arc for the upcoming season. He won't be Micheal the whole season, but he will be for a lot of it. It's not something that gets resolved in the second episode. #Supernatural #ComicCon #DeanWinchester #SPNSDCC #SDCC2018

Here we go! Next stop, #SDCC.
Now eating an expensive adult Lunchable. Adults do not get an Oreo, which means this is Officially Healthy.
The downside of traveling alone: if I get up to pee, I'll lose my seat. Woe.

And now, a brief thread on assistance devices at San Diego Comic-Con, both from a use perspective and from a "not being an asshole" perspective.
A few years ago, I janked up my left foot to such a degree that it no longer works reliably over long distances. One second I'm fine and walking "normally" (this will be relevant later), the next I'm on the ground, screaming.
Since I love #SDCC in an unhealthy way, and #SDCC is the size of a small city, I use an assistance device during the convention. One year in a manual wheelchair; five in an electric scooter.

After rummaging through a closet that I swear employs TARDIS technology, I found the @TerryMooreArt books I was looking for, + a few I had plumb forgot about. I'll spread these pics out over several days.
While the cover art may be familiar, these aren't actually SiP comic books.
I'll post another pic later this evening. (FYI: I'm in CA.) Years ago, Maida Carpio Scott (RIP) posted a then comprehensive @TerryMooreArt checklist online. Alas, that site appears to be defunct. Many of the publications I'll be spotlighting were on that list, but a few were not.
Not the pic I planned on sharing tonight, but fate intervened. It was announced today that @realbdw will be reprising his Lando role in SW IX. Issue 5 of @DarkHorseComics 1999 @StarWars Tales features Lando covers (photo cover shown) and the @TerryMooreArt story A Summer's Dream.
