Dearest Babblers, the time has almost come. The moment we have been ranting and raving about for almost one whole year will be here in just a couple of more days. I give you Comic Con 2011. I asked our fellow Babblers what they were looking forward to the most. Here are their replies.
Johnny – Okay, first I would like to say Johnny named about half the convention, but otherwise here is his list: The Amazing Spider Man panel and rumored trailer, Locke & Key pilot episode, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Cowboys and Aliens, Edgar Wrights’ Attack of the Block and finally, after-parties.
Tony – Chuck, Community, Game of Thrones, and the Visionaries Panel. Sadly, Tony has some responsibilities that week and won’t be around much.
Jeff – Game of Thrones! (Hands down my favorite show). Community, (my 2nd favorite, plus I have a crush on Annie.) Dexter, Tin Tin to see Spielberg, Chuck, Cowboys and Aliens and after-parties.
Truthfully, as cool as the panels and shows are, the thing we all love the best is being in an environment we are passionate about. We love connecting with other fans. We also love the costumes, the creativity, and the imagination. We love hanging out with old friends that we don’t get to see very much anymore. Maybe, most of all, we love the sense of wonder it fills us with. That profound sense of possibility and endless bounds we had as children. It makes me personally feel like that 10 year old boy, who would stay up late reading comics in bed night on countless summer nights, when everything in the world seemed more simple and right. Cheers to you Comic Con, thanks for renewing our inspiration for one more year!
That being said, we want to know what you are looking forward to the most. And what you love about Comic Con! Let us know!
