Orlando Comic-Con – Post 4

Ok, there’s no place to eat in the convention hall. I suppose I could have walked across to the hotel itself, but instead I spent the time making my way throughout the exhibitor hall and artist’s alley taking pictures, like the one below.

The crowd has increased by about 10 fold since my first walk-through when the doors opened and the atmosphere has become more hectic in response. Over at artist’s alley, most of the artists seem happy as they all had people in front of their tables either buying an already created piece of art or commissioning a special job for the artist to create, either here at the convention or to be done at a later time.

orlando_comic_con_spidey.jpgComing around a corner I ran into this character, the “black costume” version of Spider-Man from many years ago in the comics and re-appearing next year in the Spider-Man 3 feature film. Most of the exhibitors had prominent displays of those old comics that featured the black costume or collected works of the comics or statues. The reason, of course, is that they are gearing up for the expected increase in popularity and interest generated by the movie release next summer. I’ve had the early movie poster featuring the black costume Spider-Man sticking to a wall as the wallpaper on my trusty laptop for almost 8 months.

orlando_comic_con_scifi.jpgI mentioned in an earlier post that I had won my ticket for today’s Orlando Comic-Con from Sci-Fi Zone Radio and here are the guys set up to broadcast from the convention floor. They’ll be broadcasting live on WAMT 1190 AM (Fox Radio Network) here in Orlando, at 4pm today, so if you get a chance to tune in, be sure to do so. If you miss the broadcast, they offer podcasts that you can listen to at your leisure.

I’m off to the next panel and then I’ll be done here for today, so I’ll try and upload the last post when I get home.
