So slightly sad that Mark Hamil won't be reprising his Joker role, but it'll be a fresh look at the Joker I suppose. NOT TO MENTION THIS AMAZING TIE IN STATUE!(so excited it needed capslock)
Additionally, neato little history of Jason Todd (with photos GASP) From my twitter pal: History of Jason Todd .
In total honesty, this is probably my favorite convention. And not just because I live 10 miles away and don't have to buy a hotel room. It's always less crowded than Comic-Con and more comic oriented than Movie oriented. Comic-Con has certainly drifted into the land of big name Movies and Promoters. Which as a shameless hunter of free swag isn't necessarily a bad thing. But there's something about meeting people like Tim Sale, Mike Mignola and Greg Rucka in a much smaller setting that's somehow more intimate.
I'm just about to buy my tickets which is a decade old ritual. Normally this marks the beginning of Con season, but the hype around comic-con has slightly distorted that since I now have to purchase next years Comic-Con tickets about 2 weeks after returning home from Comic-Con. Ah how life changes.

Last nights Live Tweet was rather dull I must admit. The movie wasn't bad in a way to make fun of, it was just slow and dull and uninteresting. While it was desperately trying to be creepy and unsettling it was more just the same slightly creepy stare repeated over and over and over and over. The best thing about it was Fred Durst. Which is a sentence I NEVER thought I would type.
This has taught me a meaningful lesson. Thrillers do not make good live tweets. Too much build-up for not much pay off equals not a whole lot to tweet about. Next weeks options:
Freddie Versus Jason
Seed (Directed by Uwe Boll)
