Comic-Con 2009

posted by Nell Minow

The 40th anniversary of Comic-Con is this week and I am thrilled to be attending. It long ago expanded its range from the original gathering of comics fans and now includes sneak peeks at everything that is going to be cool in the popular arts over the next year or two. We will see previews of the big movies (including “iron Man 2″ and “Toy Story 3″) and get a chance to hear from the performers and creators. Joss Whedon will be there. So will Tim Burton. I’m hoping to get to interview one of my favorite actors, Eric McCormack. And, yes, many Klingons and Han Solos and Harry Potters. Last year’s most popular costume was the Joker. Any predictions on what this one’s will be?
I will be tweeting and posting blog updates. Take a look at the schedule and let me know if there’s anything you think I should not miss.

    Sounds like a lot of fun, Nell. Enjoy it! I would guess the most popular will be a character from “Harry Potter” – perhaps either Snape or Dumbledore. Either that or a character from “New Moon.”
    BTW, I’m going to see “Harry Potter” on Saturday.
