CCI: “Torchwood’s” John Barrowman on the CBR Yacht!

We finish off our first week of photos from the CBR Yacht 2011 edition at Comic-Con International in San Diego with a photo of me with “Torchwood” star John Barrowman. When we get the video interview online, I’ll have to share with you the full story behind this interview as some stuff went on behind the scenes that was really fun. What an incredible guest and very generous guy. Pleasure meeting John who, BTW, is also a comics creator, having written a “Torchwood” comic with his sister, illustrated by Tommy Lee Edwards! So, he gets bonus points for being a comic creator, too!

[NOTE TO SELF: Stop being so squinty eyed in every photo you take! Seriously, dude, get it together!]

CCI: Joe Hill on the CBR Yacht!

Day Quatro of the CBR Yacht/Comic-Con International photos is here and this time we have at “Locke & Key” co-creator Joe Hill! The video interview will be online shortly, but this is another comic creator I’ve never had the pleasure of interviewing and it was a real treat. Fascinating writer and a great interview subject. Honestly, this is just one example of the reason why I do these video interviews at conventions — it gives me an opportunity to talk with some of the most interesting, creative people in the world and that’s no exaggeration.

CCI: Jill Thompson on the CBR Yacht!

Day three of the Comic-Con International/CBR Yacht photo roll out continues and this time it’s one of my favorite illustrators in comics, Jill Thompson! Don’t miss my full interview with Jill Thompson on CBR’s Video hub.

CCI: Mike Allred on the CBR Yacht!

Alright, we continue rolling out photos of guests who made it out to the CBR Yacht during Comic-Con International in San Diego. Next up it’s me with Madman creator Mike Allred! This was the first time I’ve interviewed the guy — in print or on camera! Real pleasure and easily one of the most confident creators I’ve ever met. We’ll have the video interview up shortly.

CCI: Jim Lee on the CBR Yacht!

Hey folks,

It’s time we started rolling out some photos of guests who came out to the CBR Yacht during Comic-Con International in San Diego! 2011 was our biggest year ever — the site saw it’s best convention traffic ever, we had our largest team of reporters and support staff ever and had more guests out to the yacht than ever before (I BELIEVE the count is 45, but I had to double check that). It certainly was the busiest convention I remember in recent memory — oh, and we won’t a little Eisner award (thanks!), too! It certainly ranks up there as one of the best Comic-Con’s I’ve been to in 19 years and I hope they just keep getting better.

One thing we were much more diligent about this year compared to years past is documenting all the guests that came out to the yacht. So, once a day until we’re out of photos I’m going to share a photo with you of one of our wonderful guests. First up, since we’re running his interview today, is DC Comics Co-Publisher and artist on Justice League Jim Lee, who was interview by CBR News Editor Kiel Phegley. More photos tomorrow — every day for some time — at 3:00 PM Pacific.

Sincerely,

Jonah Weiland
Executive Producer, Comic Book Resources
