The photos from Comic-Con keep coming in. It looks like I've gone through about 600 today and have another 2000+ to go through before weeks end. What the means is for those of you who enjoy these here CBR Photo Parades, we have plenty for you to check out this week. We'll have at least five photo parades, if not a bonus one or two to go.

I spoke with some of CBR's staff today that attended Comic-Con this past weekend and it seems we're all in the same boat -- the boat of exhaustion. This year I wasn't as physically exhausted as in years before -- a combination of more time spent on the boat and being in better shape helped there -- but the mental exhaustion is still pretty huge. If there was a way I could convince the comics industry to all take a vacation the week after San Diego, I'd do it. Oh how nice that would be.

There is one weird lingering effect from Comic-Con this year. For those of us who lived on the CBR Yacht, we all feel like the world is still moving as though we're still sitting in the water. It's a very odd feeling sitting here in my office and feeling subtle movement that isn't actually happening. Hopefully I get my land legs back soon.

Alright, on to part two of the 2007 Comic-Con International in San Diego CBR Photo Parade. Part 1 is here.
