Dave!Later this week I will be taking off for Southern California to experience Comic-Con 2008 in San Diego. Believe it or not, I've never been before, so I am really looking forward to it. The entire convention is sold-out for all four days but, fortunately, I bought my tickets and made my hotel reservations way early, so I think I'm good to go!

The only problem is trying to figure out which events I want to attend. Sure there are some things I'd like to see... but there's nothing so life-altering happening that I absolutely have to do it. With that in mind, I think I'll just play it by ear and wander around until something looks interesting to me.

I take that back... there is, of course ONE event that is positively unmissable, and that would be Dave Diego on Saturday night!

DAVETOON: Poster for Dave Diego on July 26th!


If you will be in the vicinity of San Diego and like to drop by to eat, drink, and chat with a swell group of bloggers... please email me at ASAP so we can make reservations for dinner and get you a name badge!

And now for two more days of torture before good times begin...

  1. Bugger I’d love to go as I absolutely love San Diego. Bit of a drive from Phoenix though 😉 Dinner in the gaslamp district does sound rather good though.

  2. Winter says:

    Motley and I are looking forward to going!

  3. SJ says:

    Lil Dave is doing his Karl impression!

    So just where *would* he have to go for Lil Dave to be wearing a tropical shirt and flip flops? Davewaii?

  4. ETinNY says:

    Ooh! I have an idea for a new logo i.e. li’l Dave Diego as Don Diego (aka Zorro) – sombrero etc. Very historically apropos for So. Cal., I think. Wish I could be there.

  5. Just Jamie says:

    I may just have to round up some bitches to come join in. Wha’? Hope you’re not offended. We’re bitchy like that, but in a most wonderful way.

  6. Avitable says:

    Can’t wait to see what you’ll think of the jam-packed, smelly nerd-infested ComicCon!

  7. ChillyWilly says:

    Dave Diego… wow. And we get to see Winter and Motley together in the same place as loving mother and daughter. Nice.

  8. Rick says:

    I wish I was going to ComicCon! I’ve never been and I’m curious to know whether there are actually any affordable Silver Age books.

  9. Hilly Sue says:

    DaveDiego is just what the doctor ordered. Well, my *psychiatrist*, but we’ll keep that part to ourselves. Can’t wait to see you!

  10. You’re going to Comic Con? So friggin’ jealous…

  11. nicole says:

    oooo the comic-con is fantastic, i have gone to past ones but not this years i am already awaiting next years. i am going to the toronto Fan-expo in august you must post pictures of your trip!!

  12. Winter says:

    Pffft! More like snarky mama and bitchy daughter. HEH. We’ll be good for one night. 😉

  13. elfenkate says:

    I wish I could be there. But alas, I cannot.
    Have a great time! You have earned a bit of fun 🙂

  14. Lewis says:

    wish i were going to be there…..
    it’s one of my favorite cities in the world. you’ll love it.

  15. Aaron says:

    lucky! i’ve never been much of a comic book fan, but for some reason or another i’ve become more and more interested in going to comic con.

  16. Kevin H says:

    First the candy show and now this. Wow, Bad Monkey has connections! Guess Savage Pizza was a good way to get you ready for San Diego. Say hi to Stan Lee for me. Maybe he can do “The Adventure of Lil’ Dave”!

  17. SlyChickie says:

    Welcome to San Diego! I’d love to meet a bunch of new people for some eats… except, I’ll be in Orange County on Saturday night for a bowling tournament (yes, I said bowling). I hope Dave Diego is a blast! If you see a chickie driving around town in an old-school blue convertible, that’d be me!

  18. claire says:

    That sounds awesome. Comic-con is definitely one I’d like to get to at some point.
