Not going to San Diego either

I miss going to San Diego for the "Nerd Prom". I had a lot going on last summer but this time I'm plugged into the blogosphere and following what's going on. There's just way too much to see and do, and even the five-day con (including Wednesday night) seems like not enough. You need a time bubble to simultaneously go to all the parties, panels, and dinners you want. Tom Spurgeon probably has the most-linked-to article on what to do, see, and expect.

Oh yeah, there's going to be some Legion stuff there! Here's a summary of what I posted earlier for Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (click the links for the details). I haven't found any updates to these items. The bold items are all but guaranteed to have some LSH stuff (all related to the animated versions), the others you'll have to take your chances with.

11:30-12:30 DC Nation
1:00-2:30 Mattel Action Figures
4:30-6:00 Spotlight on George Pérez
6:00-7:00 Scoring For Superheroes

12:30-1:30 Hey, Kids! Blogs About Comics!
1:00-2:00 Spotlight on Jim Mooney
1:00-2:00 Warner Home Video's Superman Through The Ages
4:00-5:00 Bruce Timm Retrospective/Legion of Super Heroes
6:00-7:00 DC: 52: A Year in the Life of the DCU

1:00-2:30 DCU: One Year Greater
5:30-7:00 Animation Story Meeting

Nothing that I could find!

Michael Eury will be at the TwoMorrows booth at the con. Perhaps someone can ask him about what happened on the Legion title during his run as editor (as mentioned here earlier), just prior to KC Carlson taking over as the Earth blew up (two events which were not connected).

Also, the G4 Network's "Attack of the Show" program (DirecTV channel 354) will be broadcasting live from the convention floor on Friday night, 8pm Eastern/5pm Convention time, with some followups next week.

Over in Artists Alley: Al Gordon, Mick Gray, Adam Hughes, Jim Mooney, Jeff Moy, Phil Moy, and Terry Shoemaker, among many others. (I bought a page from Terry a few years ago and mailed it to myself at home, but it got lost in the mail.)

Upper Deck will have a booth there, ask them about the upcoming Vs. System set with the Legion coming this fall, maybe they've got a sneak preview.

For anyone who's going, have fun and tell me all about the Legion stuff! I'll post news as I get it.
