Want to party with Nathan Fillion? Zach Levi? You can...sort of?

Of course, you have to help PAY for the party. "Something seems broken here. Asking people for money to put on an event they may not even be able to participate in? How is there no level that gives you an all-access badge? How does throwing a million dollar party to raise a quarter of a million dollars for charity make sense? I'm not begrudging people the good times they have at Nerd HQ, and more power to everyone who felt included and part of a fun event. But this seems like a huge misuse of crowdfunding to me, the kind of situation that sours people on the very concept. Zach Levi wants to throw a party and for you to pay for it... and maybe you can get in, if you wait around long enough in line."

San Diego Comic-Con Memories: more than just comics

If you look at the attendance of San Diego Comic-Con, you'll notice that it started shooting up in 2000, you might be tempted to think it was because Hollywood finally found Comic-Con. But you'd be wrong, and you'd be overlooking decades of movie promotions, from the first Superman trailer and the Alien promotion in the late 1970s, to the (mostly) cult films featured in the early 1990s. io9 has some images from the early days, and you can spend hours (or days) perusing through Comic-Con memories.

Lots of comics news coming from SDCC, including a strong showing for media tie ins.
Television: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation by Max Allen Collins (author of Road To Perdition and several CSI novels) is coming from IDW Publishing and Alias written by J.J. Abrams (writer, director, producer and creator of the TV show) coming from newbie Arcade Comics
Film: John Carpenter's Snake Plissken Chronicles with the involvement of film director John Carpenter, producer Debra Hill and actor Kurt Russell coming from Hurricane Entertainment via Crossgen's CGE and Shrek, xXx, Reign of Fire all from Dark Horse.

CSI could translate into a comic really well and Max Collins is a more than capable writer.
