IMPORTANT!! - it appears that the time for the Megatokyo panel at San Diego Comic Con has changed. According to the schedule on the Comic Con website, it appears that our panel has been moved to 1:30 - 2:30 (the room is still the same - room 8). I have not received any notice of this change (which is irritating, since i've been telling everyone its 3:00pm) but I would assume that the time has indeed changed. I'll try to verify this tomorrow. Special thanks to Nishiko, who (unlike me) actually looked at the schedule :)
Ok, just a few quick things as i run around in a panic (the realization that we are leaving for San Diego in less than two days has finally sunk in).
I was surprised and downright shocked to find that The New York Times had a review of Megatokyo in the Sunday edition (click on 'No More Wascally Wabbits"). You can read it here (unfortunately it does require free registration and stuff). They actually said nice things too.
As i pointed out above, we'll be leaving for San Diego Comic Con in less than two days. If you are going, please stop by and see us. We have brought along some of just about all the new designs we'll be making available in the Megagear store at the end of the month. Yes, you can buy them. In fact, please do. Hopefully we brought enough. We have new shirts, new ladies shirts, new hats, MT book bags, buttons, posters... stuff like that. The booth is 2722, and is right next to the Dark Horse booth, so you should be able to find it.
No question that we have a very nice booth placement this year. However, i'm quite jealous of Greg of Real Life Comics, with whom we shared a booth last year - he seems to have managed a free trip to Bolivia! well, not quite, but sheesh, he's all the way down at the end of the earth. :P Be sure to drop by and say Hi to Greg and Liz and tell em we miss em. :P
Other MT related stuff of note, the Megatokyo panel is on Friday at 3:00pm in Room 8. We should have plenty of room this time (I hope). After the panel, at 5:30pm we will have the official Megatokyo signing at the Dark Horse booth. Please feel free to come by and help spook out all the DH folks :) Aside from that, Seraphim and I will try to be at the booth as much as possible over the course of the show, so please stop by and say hi.
Now, as for comic schedule, I'm definitely not any where near as ahead as i wanted to be today. I really don't want to leave you guys hanging on the story over the next week, so i'll do my best. I'll have Wednesday's comic done with no problem, Fridays i'm planning a bit of a filler comic (Piro and Seraphim) and then monday... well, Monday's comic might be a little late. After that, we'll get back on schedule.
