Too many to remember, but Ultraman from New York ComicCon sticks out since he was the only one I've ever seen.

I don't remember if it was last year or the year before, but there was this one guy walking around like RDJ-Tony Stark with his own security team. That was pretty fucking dope.

There are too many Joker cosplayers at sdcc, and after the Iron Man movie came out, too many Tony Starks.

IMO

Stark is easy to do. Grow a goatee and put a tap light on your chest.

IMO.

10. Which celebrity, artist or writer were you most excited about to meet or see at SDCC or a Comic Convention?

For me, the celebrity was Olivia Munn because I always thought she would be a big time before you know it, and her star is continually rising.

As for artist, I got a big thrill in meeting Jim Lee as I idolized his work since high school. Additionally, his rise in the comic book industry is quite remarkable. Meeting Todd McFarlane earlier this year at ImageExpo was pretty cool.

Celebrity- Although totally unexpected, Dwight Howard. Even better, we didn't know he was there and he called us over to meet him, allowing us to cut in front of HUNDREDS of people in line. That was awesome!

Artist- Probably Todd McFarlane. I've been a fan of his work for a while so it was cool to finally get to meet him. Plus, he turned out to be a nice guy despite all the negative things I've heard.

I dont remember that at all! I can't believe I missed that.

Grant Morrison by far. I didn't even expect to meet him because his signing was at a really bad time. By the time we got downstairs from a panel there was this super long line. Luckily, I didn't have to wait long. I also got to meet Cameron Stewart who being vastly overlooked. So after my long We3, Frank Quitely and Batman discussion with Grant, I was able to chat with Cameron about Seaguy 3, which he knew nothing about. lol

I was most excited about Jerry Lawler. This year I'm most excited to see the cast of Breaking Bad.

If you want to get into this panel. I recommend getting line at least 3 hours ahead of time. If you get into the Ballroom 20 before hand, I would recommend staying in there until the Breaking Bad panel begins.

Okay thanks. It's a good thing I don't want any exclusives this year, I'll have extra time to wait in line for Breaking Bad instead.

Sounds like a plan. Let us know if there was any good footage or breaking news.

I would definitely like to meet Stan Lee. However, I would love to meet Lynda Carter. She is to Wonder Woman as to Christopher Reeve is to Superman and what RDJ is to Tony Stark.

I've met Dan DiDio and we've had some great conversations but I'd like to be one of those lucky people who get to have lunch with the guy. That'd be perfect. But someone I haven't met, probably wrestler Rob Van Dam aka Mr. Monday Night aka Mr. Pay Per View aka The Whole FN Show. If not those guys then Shawn Michaels. I'll spare you his various titles.
