Finally booked my hotel for Comic Con next month which means I WON’T be sleeping on the floor of the convention center after all. On the one hand, it’s nice to know I can look forward to a mattress, a hot shower, and room service cookies and milk, but on the other hand, I was kind of looking forward to being in the thick of things – somewhere between the Sharknaconda booth and the Yosemite Sam memorial display (I didn’t even know he was sick!). Still, it’s nice to know I’ll be well-rested. I fly in on Friday the 13th (I didn’t realize until I just typed that), spend the afternoon checking out the con, and then it’s dinner with –
Saturday afternoon (provided I behaved the previous day and will still be permitted on the convention grounds), I’ll be doing a signing for my comic book series, Dark Matter, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. at the Dark Horse booth. Come on by to say hi, ask me any burning Dark Matter or Stargate-related questions, and have a shot at some Stargate goodies.
Oh, yeah. Speaking of Stargate goodies, I promised yesterday I would announce the winners of our Greatest Mid-Season Two-Parter in Stargate History contest.
In first place: Atlantis’s first mid-season two-parter, The Storm/The Eye with an impressive 196 votes.
In second place: Atlantis’s third mid-season two-parter, The Return I/The Return II with 130 votes.
In third place: Atlantis’s fourth season mid-season two-parter: This Mortal Coil/Be All My Sins Remember’d with 116 votes.
Since 5 out of the 6 winners were Martin Gero joints, I can only assume the results were somehow skewed by Marty G’s rabid fanbase (I believe I’ve mentioned he is writing/directing/producing a series called the L.A. Complex airing Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m. on the CW!).
Congratulations to Martin and the rest of the The Storm/The Eye team. Also, congratulations are in order for the following individuals who have won signed scripts…
The excitement is overwhelming, no? Relax. Take a breather with Jelly –
Caught your breath? Good. Let’s proceed.
These individuals have won signed copies of the following scripts:
The Perfectly Imperfect One
Again, congrats to all the winners. I’ll be getting in touch soon to make arrangements.
Now, I’m off to complete the rewrite on the SF miniseries (it goes to camera next month!) and start thinking about my next pass on that horror script.
