DAY ONE

"Have your badges ready - or else!"

To boldly advertise where no advertisers have advertised before.

"Uh, mom, where'd you go?"

Is that a Duff in his side pocket, or does he have one effed-up anatomy?

And what are YOU hawking?

Nice shiner - what comic are you from, Revenge of the Battered Wife?

"In the brightest day or blackest night

Everyone in the room is checking out your tights..."

Wow, CGI gets more realistic looking all the time!

Gawd, I hope he isn't going commando under there....

Let's hope the carpet DOESN'T match the drapes...

"Why is everyone staring at our butts???"


Two and a half Wonder Women.

Double your pleasure, double your glum...

And yet they still have to wear their Con badges?!

You don't see many short stormtroopers.

Hey, on your hip - nice Tatooine!

Mari on deck --

Nice Tuts!

Carrot Top brought the mean girl from Little House on the Prairie.

"Fork off, dude."

Wow, all those hot girls are giving that guy such blue balls that it reached his hands!

For all you Green Ho Nuts!

She divorced Ernie the garbage can grouch, but got to keep the house.

"Hey babe, wanna spoon?"

If it weren't for the Con badge, I woulda mistaken her for a Hard Rock Hotel maid...

ROCK 'N' ROLL COMICS: THE INSIDE STORY - In 1989, San Diego's Revolutionary Comics ("Unauthorized And Proud Of It") launched Rock 'N' Roll Comics, featuring unlicensed biographies of rock stars, most of which I wrote. Some performers, like Frank Zappa and Kiss, were supportive, while others like New Kids On The Block considered our comics akin to bootlegs and sued. In June 1992, publisher Todd Loren was found dead in his San Diego condo, brutally murdered...

Welp, thanks for confirming my eternal suspicion that I have 'no' business at ComicCon whatsoever, JAS. Lordamercy, it's like the world's worst porn flick without the sex.

What do all these geeks do with themselves the rest of the year? Could it possibly involve more than one hand?

Oh wait, I guess World of Warcraft does take both of them to type.

Thanks again for your stellar coverage of this yearly crucible of inanity.

Oh, naaaaaaaannerz...
