Whatever swag you may have grabbed at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, it probably wasn't as cool as the gift Brian Michael Bendis received. He and a good chunk of the entertainment industry departed the San Diego Convention Center Sunday. David Petersen snagged an impressive Duncan Fegrado Harry Potter commission. Nathan Fillion felt sentimental. And Jimmy Palmiotti sounded like he had a good time, but he didn't feel like he was at a comic book show.
Those who made it home in time got to catch the premiere of "Mad Men" Season 4. Neil Kleid, for one, was grateful for that. Stan Lee, meanwhile, is looking ahead to his "Entourage" guest appearance. Find out exactly when that will be after the jump, along with a critique of "Inspector Gadget" and what Ron Marz doesn't know about the future of CrossGen properties at Marvel.
I'm @brianwarmoth, and this is the Twitter Report for July 26, 2010.
@NathanFillion Goodbye Comicon. You are the summer girl I met at the lake. We made out, then I had to go home. I hear Boys of Summer and see a montage.
-Nathan Fillion, Actor ("Serenity," "Firefly")
@BRIANMBENDIS best convention present was from a film projectionist who cut out a piece of film from Ironman 2 that had my credit on it and gave it to me
-Brian Michael Bendis, Writer ("New Avengers," "Ultimate Spider-Man")
@ronmarz No, I don't know anything about the Marvel-CrossGen stuff. It was news to me. But I'm glad to see the material make a comeback.
-Ron Marz, Writer ("Green Lantern," "Witchblade")
@jpalmiotti This San Diego did not feel like a comic book convention...this year more than most. The census of most everyone I spoke to
-Jimmy Palmiotti, Writer ("Jonah Hex," "Painkiller Jane")
@TheRealStanLee Oops! My bad! It seems NEXT week I'm guesting on "Entourage." I just had a 1 1-sec shot in the trailer at the end.tonite\
-Stan Lee, Writer ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "The Fantastic Four")
@neilkleid Dear Lord, thanks for my new son and an amazing MAD MEN season opener. Mostly my son. But damn if that wasn't a kick ass episode
-Neil Kleid, Writer ("Ursa Minors," "Action, Ohio")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@dresdencodak Inspector Gadget was the first children's show with a pro-cyborg agenda. More to come, I'm sure.
-Aaron Diaz, Writer/Artist ("Dresden Codak")
