San Diego Preview Night kicks off in exactly two weeks.
And as of today we have exactly ONE PRESS RELEASE FROM A COMIC BOOK PUBLISHER IN OUR IN-BOX.
While that can be explained by sheer dread and ennui, a quick check with fellow journos confirmed that we weren’t just being snubbed…all those “Steve Guttenberg and Mason Reese are available to talk about their new project, ‘Desperate for Attention,'” haven’t been received either.
People, if you expect me to sit at the computer for 20 hours a day posting all your shit next week….you have another think coming! PLAN AHEAD.
Michael Cavna has a list of 10 Comic-Con sites you should be checking. While we’re miffed he DID NOT INCLUDE THE BEAT, it is otherwise a good list. We’d also like to shout out the San Diego Comic Con Unofficial Blog for including a list of off-site events. Of which there are A LOT.
Aaaand we’ll have PLENTY to blog about tomorrow when the official schedule for Thursday is released, although Geoff Boucher spoils things a bit.
This Thursday, the first-day schedule for Comic-Con International will be announced, but already all over Los Angeles, studio insiders are playing a game of “show me yours and I’ll show you mine” with their programming plans for film and television. One of the interesting tidbits we keep hearing about is the rumor that Entertainment Weekly is hosting a two-man panel that must come close to the elusive state known as Nerdvana: J. J. Abrams and Joss Whedon!
Oh man, Nerdvana! It’s like…a double rainbow or something.
Is there NOTHING comics related that can break through the news cycle for Comic-Con? ONI! Can’t you release a panel of SCOTT PILGRIM a day for two weeks, whetting our appetites or something?
