The LA Times reports:

Quote:
The woman, who'd been camping out since Sunday, was crossing the street against the light to preserve her place as convention center staffers reconfigured the line, fans told the U-T San Diego. The 53-year-old — whom the U-T identified as Gisela Gagliardi of New York — saw the oncoming car and tried to stop, but stumbled and fell into it, sustaining major head injuries, police said.

Wow! That's like an episode of ComicBook Men, where they were holding the first appearance of Wonder Woman in their hands. I'm it felt amazing to have that comic in your hand.

Thats cool. Did you have the urge to run off with it? How much was it going for?

Just caught up with Al... Or he found me. Not sure if he'll make it to the meet tonight. He didn't even know it was today.

This place is loco. There are 4 different lines to get into the main exhibit hall, and most of the staff are clueless.

Yesterday I was in the convention early with a one day booth set up pass sticker, then when the con first opened I was the first in line for an exclusive Dexter figure, and without my permission, Seth Green cut in line in front of me and everyone else, oh well, it wasn't a big deal. Then I went shopping and got a DC Direct DCnU Batman, DC Direct Gardner, Yellow Lantern Scarecrow, Arkillo, and a GL Sinestro.

Today I'm going to my father's panel, the Batman panel, the Walking Dead panel, and getting free stuff that they hand out in the convention.

Have a great time, everyone. Let me know if there are any extra Hobbit posters or Man of Steel tote bags available.

So if I read the posts right, two casualties so far? Prayers for them and their families.

For those of us who aren't Twitter-savvy, can those of you giving the play by play give us your URLs again so we can follow the tweet action?

How hot is it in the lines, and are they bothering to distribute water to y'all?

Unless its different from the last two years, they definitely aren't handing out water. You can buy some bottled water and there are a few fountains upstairs.

Did someone besides the twilight fan die?

There were 2 deaths? Aside from the Twilight fan, I suppose the other is Sylvester Stallone's son, who died at the Hard Rock afterparty from what I heard. Sad.

I got a little drunk all weekend but here are a few photos of people my gf and I met over the weekend.

First off, balla style photo of us on the red carpet (on my birthday!!!!) i am pretty wasted here as you can see.



At that party we met people from Teen Wolf, Dax Shephard, Dave Batista, and the RZA MC'ed the whole musical set.





We also hung out at the NBC party, there were a TON of people there from their shows (Grimm, Community, the new ones) but the really cool ones you might appreciate were the monkey from Community (now on Animal Hospital) and Giancarlo Esposito (formerly of Breaking Bad, now on Revolution & Once Upon A Time)




Also we hung out at the EW party. There were too many people to list there. I had to speak with the heads of Marvel and DC over celebs but my gf HAD to take a photo with the leads from True Blood (There is a crappy photo with Skarsgard too but it's blurry)

Nice photos. Thanks for sharing them. I bet doing photos with celebs felt surreal.

Honesty, they were as chill as normal people. As long as you didn't freak out on them like some people did or their handlers are pulling them away they will just talk to you about anything.

I had to pull countless strings for that this year, but I could possibly get you into smaller ones if the door-man/clipboard-lady is cool.

^Lucky! I didn't meet that many celebs this year. It was a pain just getting from one spot to the next. Even Sunday was insanely crowded!

Here, I caught up with Biz Marke. It pays to dress up.



Here, I caught up with RVD.
