Here is a photo journal of my first day at San Diego Comic-Con 2016 #SDCC2016:

14Incredibles

Family cosplay of the terrific animated movie, The Incredibles.

02BradBird

Speaking of The Incredibles, director Brad Bird (who also did the amazing Iron Giant movie) was in the house.

03Trex

Inflatable T-rexes terrorize an unsuspecting convention-goer.

04HatkeRothfuss

The talented picture book author/illustrator Ben Hatke (JULIA’S HOUSE FOR LOST CREATURES, NOBODY LIKES A GOBLIN) was interviewed by the rockstar fantasy novelist Patrick Rothfuss (THE NAME OF THE WIND). They stare with disdain at lesser mortals.

05LainiTaylor

And in the audience was fantasy novelist Laini Taylor (DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE series, DREAMDARK series).

06BenHatke

Yours truly with the blurry, but still talented Ben Hatke.

07KamiGarcia

Four goddesses of the YA fantasy pantheon: Alexandra Bracken (DARKEST MIND series), Kami Garcia (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES series and THE LEGION series), Mary E. Pearson (THE REMNANT CHRONICLES series), and Marissa Meyer (THE LUNAR CHRONICLES series).

08SeananMcGuire

The bright and snarky urban fantasy author Seanan McGuire (OCTOBER DAY series). She said the audience could ask her anything (if they dare).

09MaryRobinetteKoval

As luck would have it, author Mary Robinette Kowal was there to accept the challenge, and asked Seanan about the time she was a phone sex operator.

10Wookies

Apparently Star Wars wookies come in all kinds of girly colors.

11MsFrizzle

In the kind of ridiculous mashup you only see at Comic-Con, a mother and son cosplay as Ms. Frizzle (THE MAGIC SCHOOLBUS) and demon hunter Constantine.

12Viking

An incredibly accurate cosplay of the Floki character from the TV series Vikings.

13UrukHai

“What do you mean I can’t get into Hall H!?”

15Alien

“Your puny wall cannot keep us out, Donald Trump.”
