The San Diego Comics Convention

To answer the usual question that starts getting asked in email around now and continues until the day before the fucking show: no, I don’t attend the San Diego Comics Convention.

And even if I wanted to, Heidi Mac details the situation:

At 1:00 EST/10 PST the San Diego Comic-con hotel reservation site went live. By 1:02 EST all the close hotels were sold out, including the Manchester Grand Hyatt, purportedly the largest hotel on the West Coast.

If you think I’m going to stay in Dirty Tonio’s Flophouse forty miles away from the convention just for the pleasure of being snotted on by eighty thousand comics fans all wearing HAWKEYE IS JESUS and ARSERAPE = SUPERHERO GOLD t-shirts, you’re fucking insane.


…no, I don’t attend the San Diego Comics Convention. Thanks for asking.

  1. How’s about the baby-brother – San Francisco’s WonderCon?

    We’re going this year – first time – not really comics people but interested and curious…

    Man, those eBay scalpers are getting *efficient*.

  3. No-one’s going to pay for me to go to Wondercon…!

  4. Dave Dave

    I was about to leave you the address for a midget ninja hooker brothel!! But I cannot!!! Why can’t i register, Mr Ellis, sir?

    *sobs pathetically while furtively touching his groin*

  5. That is strange. A friend of mine swears he’s seen you there. I think that means I get to punch him in the face!!!! sweet. thats almost as cool as getting in a long ass line to get you to sign a book! I guess now I’ll just look for bootleg simpson episodes and find Danzig for my yearly picture with him. Maybe i’ll dress up as warren ellis this year. good bye razor!

  6. I’ve never been to Wondercon. Did San Diego once, in 1997.
