Overheard at San Diego, part 4
Can we hear anything over this much hubbub? Of course we can… and our spies are everywhere.
Around aisle 2300: "I can prove the convention is too crowded. When a pretty girl walks by, and a second pretty girl walks by before you’re done staring at the first one, it’s too crowded."
Marv Wolfman: "The biggest celebrity here is Stan Lee. Everybody, young, old, knows who Stan Lee is, what he looks like, and what kind of personality he is. And of course everybody knows that Stan Lee created Superman."
At the "Writing About Comics" panel:
Tom Spurgeon: "I hope words continue to remain prominent in this field, becuase if we all go to video, I’m screwed."
Glenn Hauman: "Can I quote you?"
Tom: "Sure, and then I’ll link to you."
Douglas Wolk: "Good, and then Dirk can link to you linking to him."
Douglas Wolk: "I’m a little tired of all these comics that want to a movie when they grow up."
Nisha Gopalan, EW: "Isn’t that Virgin Comics’ business model?"
Tom Spurgeon: "It’s a little amazing that Variety and Enterainment Weekly are covering comics, when distribution is so sporadic– it’s writing about this great book that you might be able to find on such and such a time and maybe in such and such a place."
In the audience at "The Black Panel":
"What is Marv Wolfman doing on this panel?"
"He’s a token."
