Comic-Con Day 1 Part 6: celebz! (with video)
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Tony MillionairetelevisionMichael KuppermanMaakieshooray for HollywoodeventsDrew FriedmanCCIBlake Bell 23 Jul 2010 3:18 AM

We had a flurry of exciting celebrity shoppers toward the end of the day:

Blake Bell & Lake Bell, Comic-Con 2010

Above, Fire & Water author Blake Bell meets the television & movie actress of the oddly similar name Lake Bell and the world does not implode, possibly due to Lake's boyfriend, comedian Nick Kroll, executing the perfect photobomb.

Nick Kroll loves Drew Friedman, Comic-Con 2010

Here, Nick strikes a perfect mirror-image pose with one of two Drew Friedman books he picked up while Tom Spurgeon botches his photobomb.

Robert Popper & Peter Serafinowicz, Comic-Con 2010

Robert Popper and Peter Serafinowicz, creators of the BBC comedy series Look Around You among other things, stopped by the booth after a friendly hint from our own gutsy Janice Headley during the Q&A at the Look Around You panel shortly beforehand about Michael Kupperman's involvement in The Peter Serafinowicz Show (video link):

And finally (actually earlier in the day): Kick-Ass displays good taste in comics with his newly-purchased copy of Drinky Crow's Maakies Treasury!
