It strikes me that the booth-babes aren't what they used to be. (Fellow comics inmate Steve Lieber pointed this one out to me today, compliments of this guy.)
Friday was a good day. Not as crowded as Thursday, with Colleen gone and all, but I never expect big crowds on a Friday anyway. I didn't buy anything today (most of my shopping usually happens on the weekend), but I still managed to miss Dylan Meconis's "Czech, Please" panel discussion on the lunch options at Mercury Studios. Drat! I guess I was so drained from yesterday that my Friday drifted by in a haze. (Second-day fatigue?) It was also unseasonably hot, reaching 104F in downtown PDX, which is warm even for ComiCon.
I was also disappointed to learn that Jeff Parker's Toth book won't be arriving in San Diego as soon as expected -- if at all! A shame; it would have been so handy for those attending the Toth memorial panel to be able to pick up a copy -- especially Toth's kids.
On the good side, I managed to sketch a couple of convention-goers. Consider these a warm-up for tomorrow's report on the Masquerade!
