“I’ve never seen so much drunk zombies.” – Akemi walking home after drinks at the Hilton last night.
Well, not really Comic Con Day #2. Actually, the second half of Day #1 and part of Day #2 as the festivities are ongoing. Today = my Dark Matter signing.
Where: The Dark Horse Booth (#2615)
When: 4:00 – 5:00
Why?: In addition to checking out my cool new black eye, I’ll be giving away signed copies of Dark Matter #1 AND Stargate swag including signed scripts!
For dinner, Akemi and I met up with ace editor Lou Anders, extraordinary artist John Picacio, and uber-talented novelist, short story writer, and Astonishing X-Men scribe Marjorie M. Liu for dinner at a place called Seersucker.
Afterwards, we headed over to the Hilton for drinks with Night Shade Books’ Jeremy Lassen and friends. On the way, ran into Remi Aubuchon, formerly of Stargate now of Fallen Skies fame, who promised to come by the booth during my signing and offer some supportive heckling.
Lunch at Nobu today. We’re going back tonight for the sea urchin tempura!
Now, back at the hotel packing up the Stargate swag. Off to Ghirardelli’s for a peanut butter sundae (and waffle cup for Akemi), then back to the convention center to track down a Hydra and A.I.M. t-shirt, some Dexter-related merchandise for sis, and track down some missing back issues of The Avengers and Thunderbolts. Oh, and sign some copies of Dark Matter!
