    Comic-Con 2007: Jericho

    Surprisingly easy to get into this panel, which doesn't necessarily bode well for the future of Jericho on CBS. Saved from cancellation by rabid fans, it's gonna need more support to survive a full second year. I walk in on the tail-end of a panel f...

    Comic-Con 2007: From exhibit hall to eBay

    It's interesting to see how quickly some convention rats operate. Exclusive con action figures are already up on eBay, with the prices jacked up. It's an industry within an industry, really. Take for instance, this guy's "buy it now for $40" option ...

    Comic-Con 2007: Spike and Mike's Gauntlet

    It's 1:30 a.m. late Friday night, and I'm lying on a sheet of cardboard in the back of a minivan, headed God knows where, amid sliding packages of toys, many of them mine that I've hauled around all day in addition to the laptop slowly eating its way...

    The Munchkin is at it again: Do you want to know what kind of life I have? I'm going to tell you anyway. The other day I was reviewing federal disclosure reports for U.S. Representative Ed Royce (R-Munchkinville). It's amazing how all the giant finan...

    Comic Con 2007: Real-D

    In addition to the Beowulf , more 3-D stuff was demo'ed. Oops, I mean "stereoscopic." That's the term the owners of the Real-D company prefer to "3-D." The CEO and president were there. I didn't bother to take down their names because I doubt you ca...

    Comic-Con 2007: Beowulf Cummin' At'cha

    It's not clear how aware the rest of the world is of the new Beowulf movie, but it's quite the huge deal here. Coming out in November in 3-D, 3-D IMAX, and plain old regular (not the way to see it if you can help it), this is a performance-capture a...

    Comic-Con 2007: The Times' Shaky Bacon
