Thursday late: I finally got back to my excellent room at the Sheraton Marina with a beautiful skyline view of the home of Comic Con!
This is my postcard to you. The 5 to 7 right most buildings are the hotels clustered around the Convention Center.
Hotels become huge posters for upcoming computer games, movies, and TV series.The Marriott just to the right of the convention here is home to Anime and many sessions of DnD and Pathfinder as well as others. But no Savage Worlds! I have to work on that.
The Hard Rock Cafe and Hotel was covered with Total Recall!
Once inside, the madness begins.
The Trolls from the upcoming Hobbit loomed large over the crowd. I wish pictures of the Hobbit posters at the pavilion they built could convey the awesome 3Dness.
I found such imagination inspiring things. Weta had Greg Broadmore's excellent Victorian Ray-gun wielding Lord Cockswain zapping Moonmen and Venusians
That's Lord Cockswain on the right again taking target practice.
Now this I'd love to have as a poster!
Lastly and most importantly, I caught Cheyenne Wright at the Girl Genius booth with an excellent limited edition print from Pinnacles upcoming Deadlands Noir. Naturally I picked it up.
He also had a sketch book with drawings of badge and robots from Machination: A Game of Evil Genius that I supported on Kickstarter. Nice!
Several of his badges were for sale. I'll stop back by tomorrow and pick some up!
