Great list! Thanks for compiling it.

Re: I'll also be there.
Thank you for the update - it's surprisingly difficult to figure out who's going. Next on my wishlist is information on what cool things everyone is bringing to sell!

That is a fabulous list! Thank you so much for posting about it.

I have to run off shortly to man the booth for Preview night, but I hope to be able to incorporate all these into the master list by sometime tomorrow.

I meant to stop by the booth tonight to say hello, but somehow became sidetracked. Will stop by tomorrow, Thursday, some time. :-)

One more: Rikki and Tavi Simons of "at" ( http://www.tavicat.com/tavicat/at/at.html )

Their current filler says "Gone to Comic-Con" with no other information. Rikki is a voice actor ("GIR" on "Invader Zim") so may be somewhere related to the cartoon voices panel(s).

And an update: MC Frontalot is in the Penny Arcade booth on the end next to the PvP booth. Or at least he was Wednesday and Thursday. :-)

And one more! Frank Cho of Liberty Meadows was down in the 4800 region, but we didn't know it was THIS Frank Cho until we got home and discovered all his print comic work. :-/

And way too late to matter: Chris Crosby and/or Owen Gieni of "Sore Thumbs" were apparently there *somewhere*. They're Keenspotters, so they were probably in 1229.
