Comic Con 2008

I know it’s a little late to tell this story being that this event happened this past summer, but It’s a good post and what the heck.

So it was all planned, we had the passes reserved ahead of time thanks to the company I work for MAISTO, and we were ready to go. We left like around 10AM cause I had to pick up John one of our designers all the way to the city of Victorville, that alone was pretty far but when times are ruff and there’s free passes to an event like this one available, it doesn’t matter what hurtles you need to jump you just do it. Jaja.

We parked in the Chargers Stadium parking lot and took the train all the way to the convention center, the train was super packed with all sorts of people waiting to see the new releases in the comic book world.

As  soon as we got there, we saw the people running around, crossing the streets and hurrying to get in, hoping they don’t miss out on anything.

Right off the bat I saw an old friend of mine “CHUY”.

Then some GI Joe The Movie Props were on display.  It looked like some type of drill.

Before leaving I saw her in the Spirit booth, and instantly fell in love with her.  So I decided that she would be my girlfriend, without her knowing of course.  Jeje.  Can I have your number?

After walking all over the place, seeing many different new toys, weird people in crazy costumes and some of the best comic book art ever, it was time to roll out with our goodie bags.  All we can do now is sit back and let the train do the rest.  Ohh wait  I still had to drive home from SD to SB.  Shit.

Enjoy.
