Despite being exhausted, I was sad to see the Comic-Con end. It was an amazing convention. Here are a some random photos from the weekend and a few final thoughts to go along with the images. I can't wait until next year. Judging from all the long lines for swag, perhaps I should get in line now.
One of the funniest sights I saw all weekend was a guy (he looked familiar, perhaps a hip-hop star, but I couldn't place him) teaching the Predator to do the Stinky Leg, or Stanky Leg dance. There were several Predators in attendance and their costumes were incredible.
This particular Superman was the real thing. No fake foam muscles for this guy. I suppose that's why Lex Luthor was no where to be seen.
Pokemon fans lined up to have their picture taken with Pikachu. Hmmm. Black and gold, I wonder if Pikachu is a Steelers fan!
I didn't catch a glimpse of Robert Downey, Jr. but I did run into his body double.
Jokers Wild! It was fun picking out all the different Jokers in attendance. There were the Cesar Romero Jokers, The Warner Brothers Batman series Jokers (one seen here), the Jack Nicholson Jokers and the Heath Ledger Jokers.
Larger-than-life action figures. I'm going to need a bigger mantelpiece!
Be careful what you say at Comic-Con. This man told some Star Wars enthusiasts to "grow up."
Parking was also a problem at Comic-Con. This was how attendees settled disputes over parking spaces.
A makeup artist shows how he can transform an actor's face for the movies. Scarlett Johansson looks really different.
Mike Ramirez and Glen McCoy were a part of an editorial cartoonists panel put together and moderated by Daryl Cagle. The panel consisted of (from left) Cagle, Rich Moyer, Ramirez, McCoy, Jeff Koterba and Steve Breen.
And finally, what would any pop culture convention be without at least one reference to Michael Jackson? No, his nose was not on display. They still haven't figured out where that went. But they did have his glove. It looked a little big to me. I think it was just O.J.'s glove with sequins on it.
