I'm finally finally going to fulfill my dream!!! I AM GOING TO SAN DIEGO TO ATTEND THE COMIC-CON!!! HUH-FRIKKIN-ZAH!!!
This trip has been years in the making and I hope and pray that it pushes through. (knocks on wood and crosses fingers)
Jonty and I are going and we are EXCITED! Really! Our tickets got confirmed thanks to the help of a friend that we owe BIG TIME!
I'm sorry but this is the geek in me talking. I'll finally get to see the writers and artists I longed to see! Pinoys like Whilce Portacio and Alex Nino will be there. I'll also meet up with my bud Philip Tan who works for DC Comics. I'm wishing I get to meet the greats like Jim Lee and Todd McFarlane. But the person I'm thankful who confirmed to attend is Jonathan Hickman. He's gonna be bigger in a few more years. The man is a genius! I'm sad that Bendis won't go but it's ok. SDCC is already worth it!
There'll be panels but the crucial ones I have to attend are the following. The Avengers panel, The Amazing Spider-Man panel, and The Dark Knight Rises panel. (Cool huh? :) ) hehehe. I'm excited! :) Robert Downey Jr. Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and Joss Whedon together! Whatuuuuuupppp??? :)
Comic-Con will also be the venue for the 2011 Eisner Awards and please do me a favor? Please pray for our very own Gerry Alanguilan who is nominated for his work on Elmer. :) There are also other Pinoys nominated so please pray for them. I'm sorry to put emphasis on Sir Gerry but he' been one of my idols. He's a good man! He deserves the Eisner. :)
I'll also be covering this for Yahoo! Philippines. Since they got me to be their comic book blogger, I gotta cover it!!! :) It'll be awesome!!! Mark the dates!!! July 21-24, San Diego!!!
