Seen and Heard at Comic-Con 2010


Comic-Con 2010 is in the books, and this year's event was another celebration of all things geeky - and many that are not. TV Guide Magazine patrolled the halls and hallways of the San Diego Convention Center, ducking light sabers, caped crusaders and pen stabbings to file these tidbits:


- For its final Comic-Con appearance, Smallville graduated to the big time, filling the 4,000-plus seat Ballroom 20, the largest room for TV shows. The fans, many of whom camped out overnight to get in, were treated to an unexpected cameo from John Schneider, who played the late Jonathan Kent for five seasons. He will be back for an appearance that he already filmed, called the role the most cherished of his career and talked about the father-son relationship he developed with Tom Welling during the show's early seasons. Since he didn't have a name placard on the dais he put his driver's license out, and when the cameras panned in for a close-up for the monitors in the room, he realized that his home address was revealed. "I guess I'll be seeing you all for dinner," he quipped. Allison Mack, who will only appear in a handful of episodes this year, was not in attendance, but news broke that her character, Chloe Sullivan, will make her long-awaited DC Comics debut in the pages of Action Comics this fall. Finally, the panelists all offered heartfelt thanks to the fans, capped by executive producer Kelly Sounders' touching sign off, "thank you so much for a whole decade of support."
