iFanboy at San Diego Comic-Con 2008! Meet-up Info! Contest!

The San Diego Comic-Con is upon us! Starting this Wednesday night, July 23rd through Sunday July 27th, thousands of people will be descending on the beautiful city of San Diego for comics, movies, television, video games and all other forms of entertainment. The iFanboy crew, as we have for the past 7 years (minus 2003), will be at the con in full force. We’ll be there shooting for our internet television show, iFanboy, getting interviews with your favorite creators, but in addition to that there will be a bunch of events and happenings where you can come meet us and hang out with us. Josh, Conor, Ron and Gordon The Intern will be in attendance and we’ve met a ton of great people in San Diego over the years and we hope to meet all of you, if we can this year!

1) The first time Stan Lee ever appeared in an episode of iFanboy, Ron asked if he was…
a) a Skrull
b) a Doombot
c) a Sentry fan

2) What was the original name of the San Diego Comic-Con?

3) What Year was the 1st San Diego Comic-Con? & Who Started it?

4) What year did Stan Lee first attend Comic-Con as a guest?

5) During an interview with iFanboy at the New York Comic Con in 2008 Stan revealed why his characters were all in New York. What was his answer?



  1. Damn. I go away for an hour and this pops up. Hopefully I was first! I doubt it though. Who would miss this opportunity?

  2. Crap, sorry–delete that.  here I thougth I was so on the ball I was winning the contest, or at least answering first.

  3. What is the underage situation at Bar Basic? I can’t remember. Is there a time they have to leave, or are they not allowed in period?

  4. Unfortunately it is a bar, and I do believe its 21 and over- but its also a restaurant..so if you choose to have dinner there that night…or if you hang out outside…there are ways we can meet up


  5. Damn. Oh well. I’ll probably stop by for a bite, anyways.

  6. Not that I want to encourage inappropriate behaviour, but this contest made me think… Y’think Stan Lee has to worry about security?…

  7. Stan’s always got security around him at these things.  It’s probably not as much a safety issue (well, it is), but also the fact that he’d never get from one place to another without being mobbed by people.

  8. @Josh – Make sure you tell him my surname this time 😉

  9. I’ve avoided watching the video shows just to not see what you guys look like…..like to keep the geek mystique…..but drinks, those I like.

  10. Wish I was going to be there, but my day-job beckons… The rest of the crew from Kaiju Big Battel (http://www.kaiju.com) will be holding it down in Booth #4632 with a gaggle of city-crushing monsters and a couple of our new toys. I told them to lavish anyone who stops from ifanboy with DVDs and other loot. Ask for Tim at the booth (he’s the least surly).
