It’s day 3 at SDCC. My feet are killing me but I am having a blast. So far the Godzilla Experienxce has been the most amazing Con experience yet, followed by the Insidious 2 party that scared the crap out of me and the Dracula preview that got me fired up for the show this fall.
The Con has been packed. I don’t think there is any other place where you come to expect to be bumped around so much while trying to walk from point A to point B. One of the challenging aspects this year is the Hasbro exclusives line. I don’t have any interest in toys, but they now require a separate line to get a ticket to be able to buy anything. There are lines for everything, and security attacks you if you are standing around too long. I know this is why people want SDCC to move to a bigger location, but frankly SDCC wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t in San Diego.
My sister (@CaptainAnnie on Twitter) introduced me to Joe Hill’s Locke & Key comics over the holiday weekend. I am hooked. Gabriel Rodriguez does the art and he complements Hill’s stories perfectly. It is a beautiful book with a great concept.
The storyline centers around a family dealing with a very recent loss, a mysterious house, and the appearance of a new kid in school who is a lot more than he seems to be. You get caught up in it. It is a first-class page turner.
As usual when I come across something I like, I am now obsessed. We made a trip to Comickaze yesterday to buy the third volume in the series. Hey, it was my birthday. So technically it was a present for myself.
Now I am anticipating Comic Con evem more. I was already planning a trip to the IDW booth to meet the people who work on True Blood and the Doctor Who/Star Trek:TNG crossover. I have officially added Locke & Key to the list.
