Comic Con Update #3

July 24th, 2010 by Max Allan Collins

Scribes Awards 2010

The Scribes Award and tie-in panel went very well — nicely attended, and with fun acceptance speeches and a lively panel. Thanks to my cohort Lee Goldberg for co-hosting. I’ll try to post the winners tomorrow.

Nate and his girl friend Abby met Tommy Wiseau, the writer/star/director of the cult fave movie THE ROOM. He was friendly and intense and the signing (on the con floor, unofficial) was everything Nate had hoped it would be.

Tommy Wiseau & Greg Sestero

After a fabulous Brazlian steakhouse dinner courtesy of Vertigo/DC (and editor Will Dennis), Barb, Abby, Nate and I saw Patton Oswalt at the House of Blues. Almost all new material, and plenty of off-the-top-of-his-head comic con commentary (Patton is a longtime comics fan who I met briefly several years ago). He is my favorite comedian — Barb and Nate, too. Abby is a new recruit in the Oswalt Army. A long, brilliant show.
