Comic-Con 2017 Day Two, by David Bax

22 Jul

After another game of the Comic-Con Runaround threatened to leave me as frustrated as I had been on Thursday morning, I finally managed to get into the first panel on my agenda Friday, thanks to the help of my friend Ryan from CriterionCast. That panel was called Female Voices of Film Twitter and featured Friend of the Podcast Amy Nicholson as well as Personal Friend Angie Han and other notable women like Jen Yamato, moderated by the great Alicia Malone.

Comic-Con 2017 Day One, by David Bax

21 Jul

This is my twelfth Comic-Con and, for all I know, it may be my last. I certainly wasn’t feeling that familiar jolt of con joy on Thursday morning as I navigated multiple lines that moved or didn’t move with little in the way of sense or form. I was trying to get tickets to the screening of Death Note that Netflix had planned for that evening. Spoiler alert: I didn’t get them.

After Friday’s highlight of Blair Witch, I was glad to have a relaxed schedule on Saturday. If you’re looking for coverage of the major Warner Bros. and Marvel announcements and trailers from Hall H, look to the sites that do that well, with insight from people dedicated enough to wait all night for the chance to bring you the news. Instead, I decided to start off with a comic book panel.

Friday at San Diego Comic-Con this year was a light day for me, panel-wise, but not without its highlights, culminating in one of my all-time favorite SDCC experiences. I started off walking through the PetCo Interactive Zone, an offsite attraction mostly useful for the food trucks around which movie and TV studios have gathered in the hopes of gaining more precious inches of marketing real estate. Here, you can get your picture taken with the Ghostbusters car, walk through the cabin from Ash vs. the Evil Dead or visit something that I guess is supposed to be Walking Dead-related but also has a huge Jack in the Box logo on it. Me, I was mostly there for the food trucks. I got one of those burritos that has french fries in it. It was okay.

Much has been made of the fact that big movie studios are increasingly staying away from San Diego Comic-Con. As far as panels in the legendary Hall H go, it’s faster to list which studios are presenting material than which ones aren’t. Yet, despite the diaspora, I had a great movie-centric first day at this year’s convention.
