What did I do this weekend you ask? Or maybe you don't, but I'm gonna tell you anyway. I watched all three Indiana Jones movies one day and the next I watched ten episodes of Battlestar Galactica in a row. Totally geeked-out? Never! If I didn't have work today I'd still be watching Battlestar.

Honestly, I didn't think I'd be able to move by the time Sunday rolled around so I wasn't planning on attending the third and final day of the NY Comic Con. One day in plain clothes, one in costume and a night of drinking really does take it's toll. But I figured, I'm here, why the hell not take another look around? Maybe it will be less crowded. Which it was, to a degree but still not easy for someone in a scooter to get around.

About forty-minutes into the first panel and numerous questions being directed at Geoff Johns he finally decided to say, "You know what's weird, is that most people call me 'Geoff Johns' instead of Geoff." That didn't stop the fans, they kept calling him by his full name. Though one younger fan finally just said Geoff, with emphasis.
I was saddened to learn that Catwoman is getting canceled. A fan said he heard a rumor online and Didio confirmed it saying, "Catwoman is canceled, but that doesn't mean you won't be seeing the character in the DC Universe. By the next day of course news of the books demise had spread and by the time the second panel rolled around there was one very angry female fan who go up to demand an explanation. "I heard you're canceling Catwoman and I'm pretty pissed off about it. I just wanna know what's gonna happen to her," she said. Ian Sattler fielded this one, "She'll be in the Batman universe." But she quickly replied, "That's not good enough." She left unsatisfied with their answers and scared the panel so badly Didio felt the need to ask the next fan to, "Please be nice to us."

"Spotlight on Grant Morrison" was my second panel of the day. I got a front row spot (lucky for me my seat travels with me) and settled in for what I knew was going to be a great time. Comic book art historian Arlen Schumer compiled a ten minute introduction made up entirely of quotes from Grant interviews and a slideshow of art from his books as well as a few shots of Grant himself. My personal favorite had to be the one with the kitten on Grant's shoulder. I just about melted. Anyway, kudos to Mr. Schumer on a well thought-out and outstanding introduction. Plus, he liked my costume.

The fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica begins tonight on the Sci-Fi channel. I guess you could say I'm a little behind. I just started watching season one two weeks ago. I know, shame on me, a huge sci-fi fan. What can I say? There's only so much television a person can watch and I don't stay in on Friday nights. But I'm making up for it now, I'm halfway through season one and having a blast. At the rate I'm going I'll be caught up before the final season finishes.
