Instead of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro for the fifth time, the DelinO opted to attend the biggest gathering of uber-nerds this side of a Fry's sale. Comic-Con!!! (For the fifth time)

Alas, I did not make it into the famed Hall H (since the D&D crowd tend to get there at 6am). But I did get to the Community panel, featuring a never loopier Chevy Chase.

And I sort of fell head over heels for all the Being Human cast.

I was able to continue my series of StormTroopers pix (soon to be a coffee table book).

And then there was the zombie walk, which is everything that's right and wrong about Comic-Con. Hundreds of undead revelers staggering down the Gaslight streets, looking for brains and acting lessons.

By day's end, I felt a few points hipper... until I realized I spent $200 on Star Wars and Avengers chachkees. I could claim they're all for my sons, but I don't want to make Baby Jesus cry.

I'm glad I've lived to see the a society where geekiness and hipness are not mutually exclusive.

I like how Nighthawk/Nightowl/Whatever, that creep in the yellow suit,is eyeing Delino's schwag while DD is posing for the paparazzi with the storm trooper.

@Spank 2:16p: I assumed that was a sorry-costumed Wolverine

That's Wolverine from Earth-Zero (Effort).

Steve Sax said...

if so then we should banish him into the negative (effort) zone

[criminy, josh s., at least mine was a marvel reference appropriate to wolverine]

That was Wolverine admiring my swag. Alas, I didn't get any pictures of all the zombies texting.
