ComicCon Show Floor

With E3 over with for the year, it's time to cast our eyes forward to the next big event on the geek horizon: Comic-Con!

This year, the big convention takes place at the end of July in San Diego, and G4 will be there, covering all the video game, comic, movie and TV related geek news the show is known for. For any idea of what we'll be up to, check out last year's coverage... it'll be like that, but more current.

So, who's going down to San Diego? What do you want to see the most?

Win A Trip To Comic-Con With The Butterfinger Defense League!

There are only three days left to submit to become a member of the Butterfinger Defense League and win a trip to Comic-Con 2010 in San Diego, perhaps accompanied by a check for $20,000, and help the world fend off Butterfinger thieves in the process! The league, which consists of Lou Ferrigno, Erik Estrada, and Charisma Carpenter, needs a fourth member, and if you display some amazing Butterfinger defense skills, you can be that fourth.

As you'll recall, all you have to do is send in a video showing how you'd compliment the League with your "S"-based skills (Lou is Strong, Erik is Sexy, and Charisma is Sassy, so you get the idea...) and you could be one of two winners of a trip to Comic-Con, and perhaps be the ultimate winner of the trip and $20,000. Of course, there are rules, and you want to read them carefully, because one misstep could cause you to be disqualified, and no one wants that. 

Check out the contest page for all the rules and details on the contest, and get out there and defend your Butterfinger! Hurry! There are only three days left!

Comic-Con Founder Dies

Let's have a moment of silence and pour some off the top for Sheldon Dorf. Dorf founded the Comic-Con International comic book convention. He died at 76 of complications related to diabetes.

Dorf was a freelance artist and comic strip letterer, and founded Comic-Con in San Diego in 1970. In the ensuing years, he saw the gathering grow from a small collection of comic book hobbyists to one of the biggest public relations events of the year for movies, TV shows, comic books, video games and other forms of entertainment. Nowadays, Comic-Con draws over 125,000 a year. Although Mr. Dorf ended his involvement with the Con in the mid-1980s, the current owners of San Diego Comic-Con have added a black-bordered tribute of Dorf on the official website.

In memorial of Dorf, please enjoy G4's Comic-Con coverage. R.I.P. Mr. Dorf!

Dana Vinson has been poking fun at booth babes for a long time. As a matter of fact, if there was a degree in it, she'd have long-ago graduated with honors. However, we thought it would be funny if Dana were made to spend a little time on the other side of the fence, so, at Comic-Con '09, she donned her mother's 30-year-old majorette costume and hit the floor, to see what it's really like.

What she got was a lesson in humility. What you'll get is about 5 minutes of hilarity. Seriously, check it out.

Chrystall Friedemann On The Line - Comic-Con '09 Bonus Video »


The upcoming Stargate Universe, coming in October to the spiffy new SyFy Network, is purported to be a grittier, darker, and sexier look at the world of Stargate. Starring Robert Carlyle (Begby from Trainspotting) and Ming-Na (ER), among others, the show was quite the point of curiosity at this year's Comic-Con.

Luckily, we were able to talk with four of the stars of the show, including Carlyle and Ming-Na, about their view of the show and its place in the Stargate universe, as well as their impressions of Comic-Con. Check it out!
