San Diego Comic Con 2008: Sold Out and MLT Tribute

Tuesday, July 15, 2008 Posted by Chris Tung , , No comments
San Diego Comic Con has officially sold out! Anyone that is interested in going needs to turn to the wonderful auction space that is ebay. Although the tickets on ebay are going for at least double the sticker price, but this convention looks like it's going to be a really great one (and maybe the last comic book orientated convention).

The next thing I want to point out in this blog is that there is going to be a Michael Turner tribute on Sunday. Panel details:

1:00-2:30 The Life of Michael Turner Tribute Panel— Celebrate the life and times of acclaimed artist, creator, and Aspen Comics president and founder Michael Turner, as Aspen Comics and a host of popular comic book creators pay special tribute to the creator of the best-selling titles Fathom, Soulfire, and Witchblade, and the cover artist behind the mainstream comic event hits Marvel's Civil War and DC Comics' Identity Crisis and Justice League of America. In honor of Turner's tremendous spirit and body of work, as well as his countless contributions to the comic book industry, Aspen Comics will return the favor by remembering Michael Turner's amazing life both in and outside of comics at this very special tribute event. Room 5AB

To those that want to pay their respects to a truly great man, please go to the panel on Sunday.
