Are you the vice president of a Yoda fan club? Have you camped outside a theater three weeks prior to a movie’s film screening just to be part of a focus group? Or maybe your somewhat like these chicks but end up looking more like this pride of alpha males? Whatever the case may be, I’d bet you a pair of Geordi La Forge VISOR glasses that you were in and/or around San Diego for this years Comic-Con. The time when rabid comic-book collectors gather to flex their knowledge of Dungeons & Dragons and make a mockery off all those who haven’t a clue.
But I’ve learned that its not only the sweaty nerd types that show up dressed in a comic fashion. Hollywood insiders (whose interest is just above zero) also come out to network with other insiders so to figure out a way to make money from these dorks. There’s also the outrageously pretty actress that shows up to adhere to her contract obligations. She hates being there and is constantly thinking, “Get this guy away from me!”. And then of course, there is the geek’s arch nemesis…the hipster, we can always count on them to make something cool seem totally uncool once again.
Anyhow, in the spirit of Comic-Con I put together a comic strip so to build on my “nerd cred” (as if having a blog isn’t nerdy enough). If I get a good response maybe there will be more? Enjoy!
It’s only fitting that I leave you with Mugler’s Spring/Summer 2012 men’s collection. If I were to go to Comic-Con I’d go like these guys. Okay then, nos vemos y cuidate las albondigas!
