Preview Night

Preview Night has come and gone at San Diego Comic Con 2007, and things are due to begin in earnest in a few hours. Sessions to keep an eye out for today are below the cut, and any that don’t get the full treatment here can probably be found in some form at Wizard‘s site, as online editor Rick Marshall and I are comparing notes every chance we get. As was the case last year, webcam shots are being provided as a service of Dumbrella Hosting.

While the show is still building to a frenzy, there were some conversations Wednesday that nicely summed up the mood. Enjoy.

  • Howard Tayler, on potential profits if he sells everything he brought with him — My wife pointed out that I made twice that in seven days sitting at home [on the Schlock Mercenary coloring book].
  • David Willis, on whether the quoted price on his website for “licks” was to lick him or be licked by him — I haven’t decided yet.
  • Jonathon Green and Laurel Hamilton, on finding themselves between the Dumbrella and Girl Genius booths — This is the area we will visit to renew ourselves. Webcomics are what get us through the day.
  • Jennie Breeden, on getting through English Customs — That comic? It was verbatim.
  • Brad Guigar, on pretty much everything — I have to be careful what I say because my wife reads Fleen.
  • Mike Krahulik, on me telling him that I want to be the one guy each year that doesn’t ask for a sketch of the Fruit Fucker — Thank you.
  • David Willis again, on whether or not he’d made up his mind — [points to disclaimer text on the Blank Label merchandise price list] The artist reserves the right to not lick dudes.
  • Scott McCloud, on what it’s going to be like to wake up for a week in the same place, once the grand tour finishes — It’s gonna be weird.
  • Dave Kellet, on oh hell it was a long story and you had to be there — I will be happy to service your wife.
