San Diego International Comic-Con Day 1
So, day 1 has come and gone. We ended the day with Ric Meyers Super hero Kung Fu Extravaganza, which is always entertaining. This year’s entertainment was good fair, though I think the segment I liked best was Eric Jacobus’ Rope-a-dope 2. This and the short film before it (Rope a dope) is a cross between Ground-hog Day and a Jackie Chan stunt flick. There is no dialogue and I think both shorts are stronger for it. If you like martial arts stuff these are worth watching, they are both funny and amazing for stunts and choreography.
This year, my wife and I took it really slow. So, our panel visits and overall pace was really tame. Not a whole lot to personally report. I didn’t get a single good picture. I will try to do better tomorrow. I understand a lot of interesting stuff actually happened today. Bill Murray made a first time appearance at Con, and Joss Whedon took a verbal shot at Donald Trump (the two things I heard about).
More and better tomorrow.
