BQT at Comic Con

As I've been crowing the past few days, the Big Quiz Thing's quiz at New York Comic Con last weekend was truly awesome. We had in excess of 50 teams trying their hand at the world's finest comics and movie (and a little video games and manga) trivia, with—surprise, surprise!—BQT regulars the Fantastic Fournicators claiming victory with a perfect score. Scoff if you want, but hey, it was Comic Con. They were like gods at that place. (Hell, I was in the 95th percentile for attractiveness, at least among men.)

Best of all, I didn't make any conspicuous mistakes, as I had feared. The questions covered all the requisite bases (about 45% comics, 45% movies, 10% other junk), and I don't think there were any factual errors. The closest I came was on this question:

"Within $5, what’s the total combined retail value of all 52 No. 1 issues in DC’s reboot (not including tax)?"

One audience member needed clarification: Right now? Apparently, as he informed me, some of those new No. 1's are already being resold for considerably more than cover price, a mere month later. (Good Lord…) Nope, cover price. Stunning.

So I declared success. Photos below, courtesy BQT assistant supreme Liv Swenson. As awesome as the show was, truthfully, it wasn't the ideal venue for us: We were on a great big stage, but in a large noisy room, and the light made the screen look a little washed out. Hoping we can come back next year, maybe after the sun sets.

Preshow. Thank you again to my guest assistants, Heather and Mike Young.

The Hasbro Stage. Had no idea till we got there that it was labeled "Kids," though no kids attended. Still, at the last minute, they asked us to keep it clean; we did our best. I think the worst thing was a video clip of Wolverine saying, "You're a dick."

Damn, that was a big crowd. But attentive. My people!

I was very proud of this question: "Put these Batman movie chest logos in order, earliest to most recent." Give it a shot, why don't you…
