Well, Day 3 of the Wizard World show in Los Angeles (Long Beach) seemed a bit slow, but that's to be expected on a Sunday. It was a nice day in Long Beach, though, as the sun finally decided to come out and greet us sun fearing comic fans! Joss Whedon was definitely the highlight panel of the day (Look to Hannibal Tabu's Comic Reel Wrap for Monday for more information), but the floor itself was rarely crowded, except for maybe the Marvel or DC booths depending on who was signing. Not as many costumed kids either, which made this con-photo-taking-junkie a bit sad. There were two who got away, but that's it. So not too much mocking to do today, but plenty of comic industry faces to get familiar with. Let's get to it.

Angel Medina "Acend's" Christopher Shy and Keith Arem
Aspen's Peter Steigerwald and Michael Turner "Spider-Man 17: Spidey Gets Chunky and Listless"
Marvel Marketing Director John Dokes works the Wizard World crowd in to a frenzy giving away free swag.
Allan Heinberg ("The O.C." and "Young Avengers") and Paul Jenkins Howard Shum
Super Real's Jason Martin Josh Middleton
Rob Loeb and Jeph Loeb Mark Andreyko
"Amazing Joy Buzzards'" Mark Smith "NYC Mech's" Andy MacDonald and Ivan Brandon
I really want to know how this job interview went. "So, what we want you to do is walk around a hot and stinky convnention hall filled with comic book fans for many hours with this thing on your head all day." Some chick in some fantasy outfit from some fantasy story that could be Lord of the Rings, but I really can't be sure because really they all wear the same things in all the fantasy stories.
And the last photo I took of the day. Nice way to kind of wrap things up.
