Comic-Con LogoAnd so it has begun — the Film School Rejects team, normally scattered across the country (and the world) is assembling this very day in San Diego, California for Comic-Con International. Once a year we bring our highly skilled, hand-picked attack squad to the city named after a piece of a whale’s anatomy to bring you all of the goods from what is known as the Mecca of Geekdom.

And while this year’s Comic-Con has not even begun, we can already see that it is going to be just as exciting and grand as years past — which makes it all that much more fun to cover. And cover it, we shall. We will be bringing you all the happenings Live From Hall H, including first reports on films such as Watchmen, Frank Miller’s The Spirit and Fox’s Max Payne. We will also have some great exclusive interviews lined up, including chats with the stars of the upcoming Friday the 13th remake, the cast and crew of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and maybe, just maybe, a little time with Paris Hilton to talk about her upcoming flick Repo! The Genetic Opera.

As well, we will have our video crew roaming the show floor, talking to fans and random leggy blonds in an attempt to create some comedy. Ultimately, if we entertain ourselves we will be just fine.

But before we get to all of that, it can’t hurt for all of you to get to know the Rejects who will be on the ground in San Diego. This should give you a good idea as to what we all will be looking out for at the Con. Even more importantly, this will give you some faces to look for, just in case you are going to be in attendance and you feel the need to stop us and say hello — or in the case of Kevin Carr, talk about Tijuana hookers. In order to get you up to speed, we’ve each filled out a little pre-Con questionnaire — a little “getting to know you” sort of thing. And as you will notice, this year’s theme has something to do with facial hair.

That said, lets do this thing:
