ComicCon, like the Burning Man festival or a Nico’s beans-cheese-y-papas burrito, must be experienced to be fully appreciated. But at The OB Rag, we believe that vicarious enjoyment is important, too. So here are some pics from Thursday, the first day of a full weekend of ComicCon fun.
You know you're in for a good time when a guy outside is nonchalantly remote-controlling R2D2
My buddy Alan on the ComicCon floor
me with My Little Pony, an important toy from my childhood
if you like comic books, ComicCon has you covered
endless amounts of action figures on display
lots of video-game displays, too
a Batman made of Lego bricks
Special Edition Transformers 3D glasses by Oakley - because real fans bring their own pair to the theater
this GI Joe toy battle scene struck me as "too busy," but A for effort
Alan chillaxes emperor style
me and Alan in the Nickelodeon booth
you meet some interesting folks at the 'Con
indeed, the people-watching is top-tier
the scene even spills on to Gaslamp streets
you've got to watch out for the weirdos
but when day 1 ends, it will leave you wanting more...
OB Rag coverage of ComicCon continues through this weekend.
