  • MIKE MIGNOLA of Hellboy fame!
  • Brian Michael Bendis, the Writer of Ultimate Spider-Man and the always superb Powers (which, if you aren't reading it, YOU SHOULD BE!!! Take a "taste test" online, courtesy of Powers Daily! If you've never read the book before, make sure you start with "Who Killed Retro Girl?")

  • John Romita, Sr., legendary artist for the Marvelous Competition!
  • Howard Chaykin

I likely will have to ditch my plans to go to Arkansas this year due to cost (like 1200 just in rooms and gas) so anyone know how long it takes to get from Cleveland to Baltimore ?

Now we just need to work on the top-secret plan to lure the GL fangirls to the BCC, especially the ones from Canada and the Other Side of the Pond!

Wow, Gary! That's just a little too much info there! LOL!

But I'll look forward to hanging out with you at the con... and hopefully Jim, as well.

Hahahahahaha! Sadly, but true.

Anyways, that would be definitely cool if we run into each other. Do you know someone named, Jim & Stephen? They are brothers who usually shopping at Alliance Comics weekly.

If I've met them, I don't remember them.

Hmm, I guess you don't know them. It would be cool if you run into them since they are my neighborhood friends. Which day are you thinking about go to Baltimore? My brother and I might go there on Sunday.

I'm there with fucking bells on!! Since we had our kid, my wife and I would make it a getaway and have one of our moms come and watch the squirt, and go spend all weekend in the Inner Harbor. Since them she has become a GL fan, has totally warmed to my inner geek, lol. got to meet Marty Nodell before he passed, and it has been a blast in the Inner Harbor every year for 4 years now.

PS - And guess who isn't going to SDCC now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So pissed, have to spend that week in Mexico for work, and now no Comic-Con. And the four-day passes are non-transferable, so I can't even give em to any of you (which i would gladly do). My hotel and airfare for the week got taken care of, but now I got two passes which I can't do squat with. IF any of you want to legally change your name for a week, let me know

PPS - We got matching Hal rings (his and hers) from GLKING sent priority overnight the night before we left for Baltimore last year, and he came through wth flying colors, which is why I still refrain from throwing in with the lot of you. Come back to the ligth side GLKING, I will need you again this year!

Sweet!

I'll look at the schedule at the earliest opportunity. We need to figure out a time and meeting place for a GLC member get together!

I'll be wearing my GLC MB T-shirt to make it easier to spot me, and I recommend that everyone else that has one do the same!

I see. Well, that sounds like the sort of thing that might make it hard for you to have any free time to hang out with your buds from the MB.

OK, so what we need is a time and place to meet up on Saturday (tomorrow). From going to Otakon back in July, I know that the Baltimore Convention Center is a GINORMOUS place. Without a pre-determined time and place to meet up, you'd never find each other.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Ill be there, in a GL shirt. Couldn't find a babysitter so I'll be flying solo...will get to check out all that convention ass (LOL). That's probably the ONE place on Earth my wife would have a hard time believing I actually cheated on her.

See whoever's going tomorrow.

Names Joe by the way

I'll be wearing some sort of GL shirt, might not be my GLCMB shirt, though, since it seems none of the others that are going will be wearing one.

I'll also be wearing my GL Corps symbol belt buckle, one of my GL power rings, and a black baseball cap with the GL Corps symbol on the front, and the words "Green Lantern" on the back.

And if I'm not in a panel discussion or other event, you'll most likely see me wearing these sunglasses, as well...



It's a little hard to tell in that picture, with the reflections in the lenses, but the mirroring is GREEN, natch!

We really need a time and place to meet up, or we'll never find each other, though. From 11 AM - 12:30 PM tomorrow (Saturday), Dan Didio will be having his discussion panel in the Oa Room (Room 307) so that might be a good place for everyone to meet up!

You can view the schedule of the rest of the panels HERE.

I plan to get there as close to 10 AM as I can manage, but I haven't heard anyone else say what time they'll be there.

I ALWAYS have my BlackBerry with me, AND I'm subscribed to this thread so that I get email alerts when a new post is made. If any of you see this post before heading to the con, post where and when you'd like to meet up, whether it's at Didio's panel, or somewhere else. As soon as you post, I'll know and I can plan accordingly. I don't know how I ever lived without my CrackBerry... having the internet in the palm of your hand is just far too useful to be without that capability anymore!

Anyway, I'm off to bed so I can catch a few Zs before I have to get up in a few short hours. Expect me when (if?) you see me!
