Make sure to read Part one.
Wright Opinion: Joëlle, how was doing San Diego for the first time?
Joëlle Jones: Oh, it was crazy. Crazy fun. I guess everybody kept trying to prepare me for it, but there are actually no words than can express what really goes on there
Jamie S. Rich: Well, even for veterans, it was bigger than it’s ever been.
JSR: So, we just go every year prepared, steeled towards how much larger will it be this year.
JJ: I was surprised how much not about comic books it was. I think that was the biggest surprise. It was more about movies, video games, the Spike Network wants to have their crazy ass models. I don’t know.
WO: How did you find the fans? Is it a lot more extreme at Comic-Con, or just a whole lot more of them…?
JJ: More of them, for sure. Wouldn’t say they were more extreme. I found them to be really great. I’m really excited when anybody knows that I did a book [laughs], so it was really fun to see people excited about my work and approaching me. Doesn’t happen very often, so I loved it. And I loved the drinking, I love the fact that you can buy liquor at the grocery store in California.
JSR: I love the fact that as the oldest member of our crew, I was the one that was always getting up first and I was the only one that didn’t get super sick, and I drank just as hard as anyone else, so, yes, beat the youngsters.
JJ: I found out that I can sleep in my clothes in a hotel bed just as comfortably as I can in my pajamas.
