Copies of my comic book series Dark Matter? Check. Giveaway items? Check. Girlfriend? Check! I’m ready for Comic Con. If you happen to be in San Diego this weekend and also just happen to have tickets to Comic Con, swing on by the Dark Horse Comics booth (#2615) between 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. I’ll be there signing copies of Dark Matter #1, giving away Stargate stuff, and dispensing unsolicited relationship advice!
Black Eye Day #3. I’m thinking of donning an eye patch and working it into a cosplay outfit for Comic Con. So, who should I go as? I’m thinking either –
Yeah, I was leaning toward Toppy anyway.
The other day, a friend texted me the bad news that she had failed to land a job she’d really, REALLY wanted. Ever the sympathetic one, I dashed off a quick response. I’d meant to text back this:
But, instead, my rushed response to “I didn’t get the job!” was:
And then, seconds later, realizing my mistake I followed up with:
But, at that point, my 🙁 was open to interpretation. In retrospect, I should have gone with angry eyes:
So, looking back over Atlantis’s second season, what have we learned? Well, we’ve learned that the retrovirus is highly unpredictable. And we’ve learned that the wraith enjoy people food, just not as much as “people food”. And we’ve also learned that Sheppard loves Teyla. Maybe.
Standout episodes for me: Siege III, Runner, Michael, and Allies with Michael taking home the prize for My Favorite Episode of Atlantis Season Two.
By the way, our stroll down SGA memory lane happens to coincide with that of the gang at Gateworld who are in the midst of a Stargate: Atlantis Season Two Rewatch. They’re looking for nominations in the following categories:
- Best Episode (Season Two)
- Best Sheppard Moment
- Best McKay Moment
- Best Teyla Moment
- Best Ronon Moment
- Best Weir Moment
- Best Beckett Moment
- Best Team Moment
- Best Alien Race
- Best Individual Villain
- Coolest Ancient Technology
- Coolest Alien Technology
- Best Guest Star (based on one specific Season Two episode)
Head on over here – http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/85268-Stargate-Rewatch-Atlantis-Season-Two-Nominations – to make your nominations, and put in a vote for what you considered to be the best episode of Atlantis’s second season. I notice that, at present, The Long Goodbye has twice as many votes as Michael. Far be it for me to criticize the wisdom of fandom but…WTF?!
I’ll be offering up readers a chance to vote on a new Stargate episode poll (and win some signed scripts) when I get back from Comic Con! I was thinking…
What was the best season-ending cliffhanger in Stargate history? Let’s hear your thoughts.
Finally, apologies to a couple of lucky winners still anxiously awaiting their signed scripts. Marty G. has his hands full writing/producing his new show, but his signed scripts are on their way (to me, and should be on their way to you shortly!).
I’ll check in tomorrow with pics from Comic Con!
