AICN at COMIC CON - Here are the Faces to Expect!
Hey folks, Harry here...
Tomorrow I fly into Comic Con. Tonight, Capone, his photographer, Quint & his lifepartner/photographer Kraken have all landed and unfolded the cots I bought them on the beachfront. It is best to sleep on the beaches during comic con, the waves put you right out, and the sun wakes you to get going on another day of Comic Con coverage. Besides, the beachfront area has this crazy awesome wave pool that seems to go on forever... but that's crazy. It was a co-production with California and most of Asia. Pretty amazing though.
But before this is through the final tally of AICN Main Characters will be Capone (Steve), Quint (Eric), Mr Beaks (Jeremy) Hercules (Herc), Ambush Bug (Mark), Yoko (Patricia) and Me (Harry). Now - I'm definitely the most visible and recognizable... but that's not fair. These guys do great work. And while no photographic evidence of Hercules and Ambush Bug exists - I am going to post nice shots of these other blokes so you can pat them on the back, sex em up, or just leak them all the information you have.
Let's start with
QUINT aka Eric Vespe.
Sex: Mostly Male
Comic Con Mission: Interview & Coverage Machine! SOLOMON KANE panel
Agility: You're kidding right?
CAPONE aka Steve Prokopy.
Age: 110 or 41, he's flexible that way
Sex: down to his knees
Comic Con Mission: Interview & Coverage Machine!
Agility: like Nightcrawler
MR BEAKS aka Jeremy Smith.
Sex: Like a Jackhammer left on overnight
Comic Con Mission: Interview & Coverage Machine! MASTERS OF THE WEB panel
Agility: Pulled Groin has him limited
As I said - there's no existing pictures that I have access to for Ambush Bug (Comics) and Hercules (Coaxial) -
Merrick is pretty much left minding the store through Sunday. The rest of us will be updating from Comic Con. You can catch me hosting and moderating the post film panel on TRICK OR TREAT this Thursday night... and then there's the RADICAL panel I'm moderating with JIM "the man" STERANKO among several others! I'll chime in on the stuff that interests me, but I'm mainly going to enjoy the convention, rather than cover it. I'll write up my thoughts on the film stuff that rings my bell - but honestly - I can't wait to spend ridiculous sums on lots of cool stuff... and if I don't find it, I'll go back to Austin and continue haunting Ebay.
I and the AICN team look forward to meeting you good folks - and listen - if you're in a cool panel, screening or party and you want to excitedly tell the world about what you're seeing & hearing - send your reports, links and images to Harry at AintItCool.Com - that address mirrors your email to all the editors at AICN and is the fastest way to get a story up.

July 22, 2009, 12:33 a.m. CST

July 22, 2009, 12:34 a.m. CST
how man fans from here will be there in San Diego
July 22, 2009, 12:37 a.m. CST
So basically you'll all just blend right in with the crowd.

Is it still planned for Harry's room? Make sure Kraken has his camera ready. Ummmmm, on second thought...
July 22, 2009, 12:43 a.m. CST
Joss Whedon. I know what he looks like. I'm gonna guess based on the evidence above that Ambush Bug is overweight with bad facial hair and glasses.
July 22, 2009, 12:45 a.m. CST
Oh I'm ready. Cleaning the fisheye lens now.
July 22, 2009, 12:45 a.m. CST
I'm flying in tomorrow!
July 22, 2009, 12:46 a.m. CST
Is that wise?

Hey bro, be sure to wear a hermetically sealed bio-hazard suit. You don't want any man-mustard from those hirsute bastards splashing on you. And please shoot in low resolution or AVATAR won't be the only thing fucking our eyeballs this year - and not in a good way.

Hollywood needs to start putting him in all movies!
July 22, 2009, 1:23 a.m. CST
Quint: To be played by Guillermo Del Toro.<p> Capone: To be played by John Goodman<p> Beaks: To be played by James Gandolfini.<p>
July 22, 2009, 1:25 a.m. CST
If that guy ever shoots his load, the Earth will be forced out of the Sun's orbit. We will all fucking die.
July 22, 2009, 1:28 a.m. CST
All Trek all the time. Fuck the haters, bro. I want articles about Gene Roddenberry's sexual conquests. I also want to read about Shatner's many hairpieces. Get me a black box too! I will use it to rip Don Murphy a new poop hole.
July 22, 2009, 1:34 a.m. CST
Looking forward to reading about all the shit at Comic-Con on the net that most people who actually dump an ass-load of cash and brave the insane crowd will miss. Love this San Diego weather though.
July 22, 2009, 1:38 a.m. CST
I've been mistaken for Guillermo many times. I went to his book signing at Meltdown Comics and when I walked in the line hushed and then started to whisper amongst themselves. I got the looks down (the belly and the beard), now if only I had a fraction of that dude's talent...
July 22, 2009, 1:40 a.m. CST
Lookin' so studly.
July 22, 2009, 1:46 a.m. CST
nice to see the real people behind the nicks, good luck at comic con
July 22, 2009, 1:50 a.m. CST
Any chance of a filmed piece of slo-mo footage of you guys entering COMIC-CON like you're ready to kick ass and grovel for autographs?
July 22, 2009, 1:57 a.m. CST
Have a blast this week- looking forward to your reports.
July 22, 2009, 2:15 a.m. CST
That's some fine figures of manhood right there!<p> May I suggest a few early morning runs on the beach while you're there guys.
July 22, 2009, 2:27 a.m. CST
July 22, 2009, 2:33 a.m. CST
The waiting is over.
July 22, 2009, 2:43 a.m. CST
Nope. I am not at comic con. Sorry you can't find me and beat me up.
July 22, 2009, 3:25 a.m. CST
Ask for DJ Wonderbread. I'm at Whiskey Girl on Friday night and Tavern Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. (Whiskey Girl is in the Gaslamp at 5th & Market. The Tavern at the Beach is in Pacific Beach at Garnet and Everts.) Nerds of AICN Unite!
July 22, 2009, 4:44 a.m. CST
Shit, didn't realise most of AICN staff were bald and fat nerds. No fisting rights for any of you. And quint, learn to smile, might help you attain some fingering rights.
July 22, 2009, 5:01 a.m. CST
I sometimes envy the AICN for their status as "Hollywood" insiders and the fact they get paid to do what they clearly love but fuck me they are a pathetic looking bunch. Really really sad ugly fuckers, the movie stars must vomit in their mouths when you freaks walk on a set and the fact they have to pander to you must sicken them to their stomach. AICN - the ugliest, fattest writing staff in the World.
July 22, 2009, 5:31 a.m. CST
oh and Quint looks like Harry a bit
July 22, 2009, 5:37 a.m. CST
Way to act... Seriously what the fuck. John Candy, Chris Farley, Brian Dennehy, Dennis Burkley. All of them carry a few extra pounds, and all are cool as hell.
July 22, 2009, 5:43 a.m. CST
ThePilgrim, yeah some of those comments are a bit unpleasant.<p> I suggested jogging the beach at Comic Con as a joke, sure, but also as a serious point.<p> Many fat guys are cool as hell, as you say, but it's a tragedy to see a cool as hell guy die before his time when all it would have taken was a bit of willpower to lose some weight.
July 22, 2009, 7:31 a.m. CST
cheerleading for Astro-Boy; she'll be on TWO panels. In light of forgetting to put up the trailer for Couples Retreat a couple weeks back since you were kinda distracted by her. ;)
July 22, 2009, 7:50 a.m. CST
once 3PM rolls around. Hope the Avatar panel rocks our eyeballs and spins heads around like Linda Blair in the Exorcist did. 14 years on the drawing board, 4 in the actual making; almost as long as it took Sir Richard Attenborough to film 'Gandhi'. And we all know how that turned out at the '82 Oscars. :)
July 22, 2009, 8:19 a.m. CST
Only to be stuck in lines the whole time? End up line jumping and never getting anywhere, like a scene from Vacation.
July 22, 2009, 9:12 a.m. CST
We don't need any other stories this weekend; just AVATAR
July 22, 2009, 9:14 a.m. CST
Yes! Oh, yes...
July 22, 2009, 9:15 a.m. CST
Most assuredly not.
July 22, 2009, 9:19 a.m. CST
how the hell do u plan on getting around such crowded venus? arent u still wheeling around in a wheelchair?? when the fuck are u gonna lose the weight?
July 22, 2009, 9:33 a.m. CST
by Dollar Bird
Is it just me, or are half of the cool big guys on your list dead? Why not also add Fatty Arbuckle, Oliver Hardy and the two fat guys on the motorcycles from the Guinness Book as tubby "cool dudes"? Cripes.
July 22, 2009, 9:50 a.m. CST
by just pillow talk
Chances are, he doesn't.
July 22, 2009, 9:55 a.m. CST
Kidding.<p> I met Eddie Deezen on a bus in Hollywood once about 10 years ago...dude looks the same!
July 22, 2009, 10:08 a.m. CST
Actually, that photo was from last year, so I'm a little fatter now. I didn't fall off the gym train, folks; I ran it full steam into Jon Voight and Eric Roberts. And then I ate them.
July 22, 2009, 11:45 a.m. CST
May I suggest different family members next time, like Angelina Jolie and Julia Roberts?
July 22, 2009, 1:10 p.m. CST
RKDN, I didn't twig the name! How's it going my brother in Bale?<p> You've had more comebacks than Sinatra...
July 22, 2009, 2:10 p.m. CST
as a guy who just 4 months ago weighed 245 on a 5'-8" frame, and has gotten down to 211 AND STILL GOING..... it is a LOT harder than you think to lose weight and/or eat right....most thin people just don't get it.... it's taken me years to get to this point.... most important thing is your MIND... if you are not driven to do something, it just isn't going to be successful..... and it is KINDA funny how a lot of us in this "genre/field" do look pretty much just like these guys.......
July 22, 2009, 2:53 p.m. CST
for TOMORROW AFTERNOON'S 1:45PM PACIFIC TIME PANEL...crazy shit. No wonder Cameron and Fox wanted the Avatar panel to start *after* Summit's fall 2009 presentation in Hall H. :o
July 22, 2009, 4:29 p.m. CST
I'll send you a Kristen Bell authentic pair of panties of you do it.
VADER77, good for you. You're on a mission. That's the only way to do it - 100% mission until you get to where you want to be. Sounds like you broke the back of it too bro...
July 22, 2009, 4:47 p.m. CST
but warren ellis will be there this year...maybe he will kill them all<P> and i hope you fuckers dont twitter from the con...i fucking hate twitter
July 22, 2009, 5:10 p.m. CST
Sorry. Bacci40, I have to admit, I'm following several Twitter accounts of news outfits who will be there. It's as close as I'm gonna get to reading a PBP of what goes down on the Avatar panel, for example.
July 22, 2009, 5:29 p.m. CST
"@veggiebelle: Revision: the line for Hall H has been there since AT LEAST last night. It was there when a Petco Park employee got here yesterday."
July 22, 2009, 10:14 p.m. CST
the aicn gang? <p> and harry, its tinme to join the 21st century and start video taping the interviews
