More to come in writing, but here is a visual log of my five days in San Diego. As it was my first time as exhibitor, I took some pictures of the booths without the huge crowds surrounding them. It is an unadvertised treat to be able to wander the convention hall with only my fellow exhibitors around.
For a minute-by-minute recap of Comic-Con, I highly recommend reading
my Twitter feed, as well as those of my friends and neighbors Reid Psaltis, Jeff Schuetze, Victoria Ying, Mike Yamada, Tammy Stellanova, Chet Phillips, and Dave Kellett.
Dozens of trucks buzzed up and down aisles, delivering product to the booths.
A line forms for attendee badge pick-up.
Reid and I look remarkably alike in this picture.
I enjoyed watching this guy unpack loads of Woodstocks.
The Walking Dead booth. Before the show opened, they covered the zombies with sheets. Somehow this made them even creepier.
These dudes are in The Hobbit.
Reid shows off his fan purse.
Trying to show the sheer number of people at the con.

My fleeting glimpse of Robert Downey Jr.
Most unique costume of the convention. A guy had everybody tape their cards to him.
As soon as the convention ended, the lights dimmed and the crew began packing.
