Comic Book Geek Mecca

June 27th, 2005 by Jeff | Dump Core

I’m trying to make time to post at least something here each day. I tried to post something Friday, but it didn’t really go anywhere, and I was interrupted before I could finish the post. It wasn’t very interesting anyway, so I’ll sum it up in two sentences: If you’re a geek who wants not only to learn how to cook but just out-right learn, watch Good Eats. Alton Brown may know more about how to sauté than how to sudo, but he’s still a geek.

Now for the real reason for this post: As mentioned on the GPF site, I’ll be at Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA, July 14-17. It’s an expensive trip for us, but it’s well worth it. The title of this post says it all: it’s the comic book geek Mecca. 80,000+ people will converge on San Diego to buy stuff, talk comics (as well as lots of other popular arts stuff, like movies and TV), and meet their favorite creators and artists. I’ll be there with Keenspot, promoting the network and GPF. I’ll also be going for the meet-and-greet aspect as well, to see other online cartoonists, gawk at celebrities, and be a total fanboy myself.

For specifics on GPF@CCI, check out the GPF Comic-Con 2005 Pre-Con Report. This page will have all the details about where I’ll be when and what merchandise I’ll be bringing. I’ll update that page as frequently as I can get information, so if you’re planning to go and you’re interested in GPF and/or Keenspot activities, that’s the place to look. I’ll also try very hard to update it at least daily during the con with up-to-the-minute changes.

While I’m at it, I’ll also mention that I’ll be at Dragon*Con in Atlanta, GA, on September 2-5. It has its own pre-con report, so if that’s a closer con for you than CCI, you might want to give it a try.
