Heidi MacDonald brought this news to the world about a cool thing going on right outside of Comic-Con and it is not promoting a movie or TV show:
The big news outside the convention center was the soft opening for Tr!ckster, the comics-themed offsite event, showcasing independent comics creators. While it was still evolving — prints and posters set up in front of industrial sized stoves — the wares on display look sharp.
The life drawing classes — led by two gorgeous models — were well attended, and the bar got a shake-down cruise. As Tr!ckster is held inside the San Diego Wine and Culinary Center, the wines are quality — we enjoyed a stunning dry rose from the south of Italy last night.
Show runner Scott Morse was running around seeing to last-minute details, but the response from everyone there was excitement. “This is going to be the hit of the show,” predicted Jimmy Palmiotti.
