[Make me a buddy here!]
*Roaaaaaaaar* Hello. I'm Chewbacca. You might remember me from a little 'ol movie series called Star Wars. Mo made me from following this template on StarWars.com so that I could go to Comic-Con. I think she did a pretty good job, but someone still confused me for A DOG. Um, no. I'm not a dog. Wookiee, thankyouverymuch.
[We made it!]
I guess a lot of other people wanted to go to Comic-Con too, because it was very hard for Mo to walk around! She had to raise her hand a lot so that I could see over everyone's heads.
But even though there were so many people, we got to meet lots of cute characters just like me. This is edamame, its ears moved up and down! We were instructed not to lean on it because edamames are delicate.

And then we met these ugly dolls. They are called Ox and Ice-Bat.
After we took some photos, we saw some talented artists that we admire like Gene Yang, James Kochalka, Andy Runton, and Craig Thompson. Look at what Andy drew for us!

We also saw some panels, including one about a new Jim Henson graphic novel, and another about one of our favorite subjects--children's books! Here I am listening intently to the panelists.
[Interesting. I wonder when the Q&A session will start? Too bad my arms don't move, otherwise I would ask a question!]
After a really long day I was TIRED and hot. All this fur is really stifling. So we left the con satisfied and exhausted, but our last adventure of the day was at Yogurtland! My friend Hello Kitty was there. She's on a commemorative spoon, along with my other friend ChocoCat. Mo really wanted the other spoon so the boy took one when the person at the register wasn't looking. Don't tell Yogurtland, I don't want to go to wookiee jail.
[My favorite flavor is strawberry.]
I hope you've enjoyed my recap of Comic-Con 2011! Mo says next year I might have an ewok friend if I'm lucky.
[See you next year!]
