We're happy to report that Card Talk member, and now guest-blogger, Batman will be blogging show reports from Comic-Con International on NSU's new blog: nsu-magazine.com. Look for reports geared to the trading card collector. Bob will also post pictures from the show. His first report should be up tomorrow night.

SideKick's Larz has also posted that he'll be blogging from Comic-Con via Twitter and the SideKick site. Look for reports on Twitter at @sidekicklab and photos at sidekicklab.com.

Thanks.

I just posted a story about a new set that will be launched tomorrow night at Comic-Con by Studio E. It's an art-based set with the work of Mike Sosnowski. You'll find more information here:

By my reckoning, our roving blogger should be in line for his passes for next year Thumb Up

It'd be interesting if Bob could find out if the purchase of two passes has to be in two names.

Bob's report from the first full day of Comic-Con International is up on the blog now. Bob has detailed his journey to find a complete set of the nine Rittenhouse Archives' Marvel Universe 2011 promos and to obtain a Walking Dead promo card without a Twitter account. Red Face

The P5 at the Marvel booth is live. Surprisingly (sarcasm here) LOTS of dealers this year had trouble getting the Marvel promos and are requiring purchases to aquire 1 of them. They were either very shortly printed or someone dropped a ball on getting them sent out right. Day 1 I managed 5 of the 9 but I'm not hopeful of making extra sets for friends like I had hoped. Hope everyone is having a safe and fun hunt!

Also found a Crossed promo #'d 5 at the Avatar booth, the CBLDF promo and some cool business cards/promo type cards as well!

Thanks for the update Jake. I hope people can find the promo at the Marvel booth now.

Bob sent me a couple of shots of the All-Ghoul School and Speed Racer cards:

Those promos look awesome! I'd love to get ahold of any Vampirella or Twilight: Breaking Dawn promos. Smile

Batman's Saturday report is on the blog now

Comic-Con International Saturday Report

Batman's final installment will not be online until either late tomorrow or Tuesday due to travel. Apparently, the Batplane is being serviced so Batman has to go coach.

Many thanks to Batty Bob and Harris for their Comic Con reports & efforts!

Since I couldn't get Con tix this year (only missed twice since 2004), the blog & CardTalk were fun to read & keep up with the latest... Thumb Up

Don't forget....there should be one more Comic-Con post from Batty Bob either later tonight or tomorrow.

Glad you liked 'em Batty Bill. Big Grin

It's coming, I'm still a bit groggy from my red-eye flight, but it went well. I found some new promos which I will provide pictures. It was fun, but I'm happy to be home! Smile

Hi All:

Batman's final report from Comic-Con International is now up on the blog:

Comic-Con International Final Day and Wrap-Up!

I want to thank Bob very much for doing these reports for us. We were very fortunate to have him doing these for us. I'm sure it must have been pretty time-consuming on top of everything else going on in San Diego.
