Quote of the day | ‘Comic-Con starts to sound like a crazy dream’

“It’s when somebody dressed as Axe-Cop removes his mustache and hat to reveal that ‘he’s’ actually True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll that I realize that everything about Comic-Con starts to sound like a crazy dream if you describe it long enough. Nothing ever really dies at Comic-Con, to the point where there’s a panel for a ’70s TV version of Shazam that I’ve never even heard of. But that also means that everything you could ever possibly think of is here and wandering around, all the ghosts of your childhood entertainments live and in the flesh. Today, I stood in line with a Snork and saw a sexy Tom Servo. And those are among the more easily understandable costume choices. Everything about wandering around here has that feel of when you fall asleep after being awake too long and your brain starts rummaging its own couch cushions for spare change.”
