iFanboy at San Diego Comic-Con 2010!

San Diego Comic-Con is upon us!

Beginning this Wednesday July 21st through Sunday July 25th, hundreds of thousands of people will be descending on the beautiful city of San Diego for comics, movies, television, video games and all the other forms of entertainment that can be crammed in that ever growing convention center.

The iFanboy crew, as we have for the past 9 years (minus 2003), will be at Comic-Con in full force! We'll be there shooting for our show, iFanboy, but in addition to that there will be a bunch of events and happenings where you can come meet us and hang out.

This year there will be a passel of iFanboy staffers on-hand! In addition to Josh, Conor, Ron and Gordon The Intern, staff writers Molly McIsaac, Mike Romo, Ben Simpson and Ryan Haupt will all be in attendance!

We've met a ton of great people in San Diego over the years and we hope to meet all of you this year!

If you're attending the convention, there are a bunch of places you can see us.

THE IFANBOY / GRAPHIC.LY BOOTH

Location: Booth #2229 (which can be found in the middle of the convention floor in-between the Marvel and DC booths)
 

 

We won't be at the booth the entire week (someone's got to shoot those interviews!) but because there are chairs on which we can sit you'll probably have a good chance of finding us there at some point during the week. Come by and say hi! There will be swag! Even if we're not there come by and say hi to the nice Graphic.ly people. Thank them for allowing iFanboy to live on, and while you're there learn about digital comics! Oh, but that's not all: there will be creator signings at our booth!

5:00-6:00pm
The 5th Annual Comics Podcasting Panel! -  Five years ago, the comics podcasting stars came together on one panel for the first time in San Diego, and now they're back to discuss comics, podcasting, and how the comic book industry has changed since that first panel. Podcasters appearing on the panel include John Siuntres  (Word Balloon), Josh Flanagan (iFanboy), Jimmy Aquino (Comic News Insider), Brian "Pants" Christman (Comic Geek Speak), Bob Bretall (The Comic Book Page), and Cameron Hatheway (Cammy's Comic Corner). Don't miss your chance to see all your favorite podcasters on one panel! Room 32AB 

DIGITAL COMICS PANEL

Friday – 7/23
3:00-4:00pm
Digital Comics and You -  A panel of industry professionals ranging from creators to publishers to retailers to entertainment agents discuss the benefits and drawbacks of digital comics and ultimately how digital comics can and will affect you, now that the digital comics revolution has begun. Ben Templesmith (co-creator, Choker, Fell, 30 Days of Night), James Sime (retailer, Isotope: The Comic Book Lounge in San Francisco), Micah Baldwin (Graphic.ly), Scott Agostoni (entertainment agent, William Morris Endeavor), and more surprise guests will discuss, argue and hopefully hear what you think in this honest, no-holds-barred conversation moderated by Ron Richards (iFanboy). Room 32AB

 

 

iFANBOY MEETUP AT THE LIVE DIGGNATION  

Like last year, we'll be joining our friends from Diggnation and The Totally Rad Show for a meet/drinkup!


When?
Thursday – 7/22
7:30-11:00pm

Where?
House of Blues – San Diego

1055 5th Avenue
(between Broadway & C Street)
San Diego, CA, 92101

You can RSVP for the party here, though it's not mandatory — we just like to see who's coming!

NOTE: The maximum capacity for The House of Blues is 1,000 people so try to get there as early as you can. We don't think the party will go over capacity, but better safe than sorry.

 

 



Hope to see you all in San Diego! Remember to bring water and wear comfortable shoes!

  1. Go to Hodad’s while your there. I was there over the weekend. Great burgers.

  2. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

    @MayorMitch100: We absolutely will.

  3. @conor The last time I was there I forgot to get a milkshake. I regret it. But damn if those burgers aren’t some of the best I’ve eaten. If you ever find yourself in Huntington Beach go to TK Burger. It might be better than Hodad’s.

  4. ChrisB ChrisB says:

    lal ok i keep re-reading…the meetup is the night of the live diggnation (thurs), right?

    but below it says Friday, and then 7/24 (which is Saturday)

  8. Hope to see you guys there! 

  9. Hmm, Ive never been to that comic shop (On Comic Ground?) before, but then again downtown is like all the way on the other side of town so I dont see myself going there soon.

  10. Ryan Haupt Haupt (@haupt) says:

    I can’t believe you guys linked to that picture. I probably won’t even be drunk on the con floor. Probably.

  11. Molly McIsaac MollyMcIsaac (@MollyMcIsaac) says:

    Truefact that the photograph of me only perpetuates: I don’t actually have a mouth.

  12. Kodaiji Kodaiji says:

    I can’t wait to meet up with everyone again this year. Hope I can sneak away from my duties for awhile to see the show, too. (I’m going to Comic Con for work, but, hey, I’m going to Comic Con for work!)

  13. Kody Kody says:

    Awesome! Drop by my table at Comic-Con, I’ll make sure you guys get some books. 

  14. Gabe Gabe says:

    No paul this year? Start walking now!

  15. Conor Kilpatrick conor (@cskilpatrick) says:

  17. Crippler Crippler says:

  19. cprevite cprevite says:

    Sweet location for your booth – smack dab in the center of the action. Have a great time!

  20. spydermon spydermon says:

    PLEASE interview the nutjobs!!!

  21. Josh Flanagan josh (@jaflanagan) says:

    Honestly, fuck them. I wouldn’t give them an ounce more attention, because they deserve to be ignored. Hatemonger bigot assholes. We’re talking about comics!

  22. Those "nutjobs" actually made me laugh out loud. Thanks for posting the link; made my day.

    Josh is right though: They’re only after attention, and it’s best to just ignore them.

  23. Anville Anville says:

    re: nutjobs

    Highfather loves iFanboy

  24. Crippler Crippler says:

    I was kidding about asking for an interview.  Just a new angle on the SDCC scene. 

  25. JohnNevets says:

    Hmm… right next to sideshow, so how much room are you saving in your suitcases.

  26. Poopmonster Poopmonster says:

    @DarkKnightDetective OnComic Ground is in North Park.

  27. Jim Mroczkowski Jimski (@jimski) says:

    Now that I’ve seen where the booth is, I really am depressed not to be there.

  28. stuclach stuclach says:

    I hope everyone enjoys SDCC this year.  I hope to see you at NYCC.

  29. braincloud braincloud says:

    Bummed can’t make the meet up.  It was a blast last year.

  30. excalipoor excalipoor says:

    Dammit!!! I want to be there!! specially now you guys get people to sign stuff and that meetup party. May be next year.

    So Paul is not going to SDCC? Or he’s gonna get there by walking? Would like to see him at SDCC someday. 

     

  31. Neb Neb says:

    Have fun at San Diego everyone!  Man, I can’t believe you guys have a booth right in the heart of it all.  That’s flippin’ awesome. 

  32. iSteve iSteve says:

    This all looks so cool!  The location of the booth is fantabulous!  Have a great time, guys.  Don’t wear out your feet.  Film lots of footage.  Geek out!
