  1. Shush! Everyone will want some!

  2. I did not know people cosplayed as Austin Powers villians…

  3. It’s sights like that and the gamer’s funk which tend to show up in comic stores that’s driven me from buying comics for the most part.

  4. Last time i was at San Diego some big sour smelling bastard in line had cheese growing in his folds. His beard showing evidence of at least a few weeks of meals and snot. whom ever let this guy out of his mothers basement should of hosed the fucker off.

  5. It’s sights like this that have driven me from playing Magic: The Gathering. Way back when I was young and suddenly realized that I was way too handsome to hang with that crowd. Coincidentally, it didn’t take long before I was discovered by girls right after leaving fantasy role-playing behind and switching my expenses to my new-found love: Comics! Which evidentally proves, that IF used appropiately and approached with the right state of mind, them funnybooks will add to your overall attractiveness. Or so I like to think.
    - (what do you mean narcissistic?)

  6. Jesus, somebody get that man a hot dog or something.

  7. Bill, you just made my hungover morning with your comment.

    Of course, it makes thermodynamic sense to eat your own skin. I mean, you made the stuff, right?

  8. What does it say about Fraction, though. The guy was in his line.

  9. He was eating his own skin. Any way you look at it, that’s pretty wrong.

  10. no, it was a line for, i think, rosario dawson, that ran in front of my table.

  11. That kinda makes sense then. I mean he was just making sure he looked his best before he got to her. I hope she appreciated the effort.

  12. So what – the guy was grooming himself like a cat before meeting Ms. Dawson? Has no one told their children about showering and shaving and well, hygeine?

    Kids these days. There just aren’t enough bullets…

  13. That is why, Bill, I like blunderbusseses(?) so, OK, they are old fashioned, but you can pack ‘em with nearly anything, up to and including rusty fucking nails, and you get a marvelous spread.

    Pablo you are correct…my current innamorata finds my comic book habit (as have other women in the past) erm, “eccentric”. “Eccentric” I can live with. When I admit to her that I was really into role-playing she looks at me as if I’d just admitted to having anal sex with an animal I’ve just chloroformed while watching videos of kittens being tortured and says “Well, you were young.”

  14. I was standing next to Fraction at the time and can vouch for how disgusting this actually was.

  15. I apologize, Mr. Fraction.

  16. Oh hell, that Pablo guy sounds just like one of my ex-boyfriends… The one called Pablo. Hell. Too odd.

  17. [...] I’ve seen San Diego at its worst. I was standing one foot to the right when Matt Fraction spotted a bloated gentlemen with a sunburnt, peeling head in the queue for meeting Rosario Dawson. The gentleman was staring into the middle distance as he idly tore off bits of his scalp and ate them. He even texted Ellis about it. I couldn’t speak. [...]
