Did you happen to see two girls with dark hair, one Asian-looking and one Mid-eastern looking... the Asian one in a green jacket and long grey/white-flowered skirt, with a blue shirt underneath and.... both girls had long hair?? Because maybe you saw me at the Wondercon, although I wouldn't know!
Yikes. That describes a lot of women at WonderCon! Here's what I looked like yesterday. I'm an agin' Caucasian with long dark brown hair, still curvy figure, and wearing jeans and my black White Tree of Gondor tee-shirt. I was with two friends, who are more striking than I--a man with very long, curly salt and pepper hair and long beard, and a woman with long gingery hair and unusually short arms (birth defect).
We loved Frank Miller. Your description of his talk is great. It was mostly about his work on Batman. Very little discussion was given to Sin City, graphic novel or film. This was Wondercan, after all, where folks are generally more thrilled with Batman, Superman, and Xmen than films or novels--unless they concern superheroes, of course. Miller is planning a graphic novel starring Batman, where the Dark Knight goes up against Osama Ben Laden. I'd like to see that one.
I was annoyed at the woman who only mentioned Gerard Butler in regard to '300.' But I'm glad that she brought up the movie, anyway. The news item was Miller saying that '300' won't be released until 2007, due to the amount of special effects that have to be added. So there's that tidbit for you.
Looks like we have to wait a looooooong time to see Dave as Delios, but I'm betting '300' will get a lot of press coverage and publicity. It should be lots of fun to follow its progress. Meantime, I'm very impressed by Frank Miller, gravely voice and all.
