Not much happened for me personally at Comic Con on Sunday except for getting the frack out of there before getting quashed by a giant menacing smurf but I nonetheless have a bunch of cool schtuff to share from Sunday and previous days…

Well, another Comic-Con is drawing to a close, with the traditional annual Buffy sing-along, this time in Hall H. (Perhaps they could also add a “Mayhem of the Music Meister!” event as well?)
So, here’s some more interesting tidbits from Comic-Con…

The Douche Army has packed up their Desigual and headed back home, leaving Sunday for comics here at Comic-Con. It’s been an action packed week of parades, parties and panels. The big news from the show? Was it Andrew Garfield at the Spider-Man panel? Was it Tintin? Was it Paul Pope and Matt Wagner joining Frank Miller at Legendary Comics? Was it Fantagraphics adding EC to its reprint line-up?
Or was it just the “Angoulême of Pop Culture” feeling of the town all week? From the Conan O’Brien Art Gallery to Tr!ckster to Marvel’s Monster Truck display, the entire Gaslamp has become one big festival of pop culture, more so than ever before. Last night the klieg lights were on star power with the COWBOYS & ALIENS premiere — Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Steven Spielberg and Jon Favreau did the old school red carpet for the premiere while the E!/SyFy party had the block closed down for arrivals.
Fantagraphics announced at their panel Saturday that they will be republishing two comics classics which so far have yet to receive the deluxe treatment: the EC Comics Library and a complete collection of the influential early indie anthology Zap Comix.
Saturday brought a boatload of news from DC, which isn’t surprising, given the number of comics panels they held.
