Wondercon 2009 ~ Watchmen Panel

The surprise invite to the Watchmen Premiere put me behind with writing about my trip to San Francisco for Wondercon where we had a fabulous time.

We were in line early, ready for the Watchmen panel. The line was long, out the door, and wrapped around the building.

Lois proudly wearing her Watchmen pin she won at the Cartoon Art Museum the night before. There was a lot of pin envy! LOL! Everyone asked where we got them. They proved to be a great conversation piece for the weekend.

There were plenty of people dressed as their favorite comic book characters.

We did pretty well, getting great seats in the second row.

Zack Snyder was the first to come out on stage. He talked a little about the film before we were treated with the first 20 minutes of Watchmen.
Then the cast was introduced one by one. Jeffrey immediately reclined back into his seat where he, Patrick, and Dave seemed to be having a great time.

A great smile from from Jeffrey and a big wave when he spotted us in the audience.

Dave Gibbons talking about how great it was to see the novel come to life.

Jackie, Billy, and Malin.

The audience asked the panel questions. My favorite question was:

Q: Jeffrey Are you ever gonna NOT die?
A: I think it's working for me so far.
