As Day Two of San Diego’s Comic-Con rolls into night (and don’t expect these attendees, and especially presenters, panelists and booth dwellers are turning in early any of these nights) let’s take a look of some of the day’s events and announcements.

Mangablog has the roundups of the manga announcements so far (One and two). (Mangablog is basically the morning paper for the English-speaking manga world.) Highlights include announcements by Dark Horse for a new and original manga by Maka-Maka writer Torajirou Kishi. That name probably doesn’t ring a bell, but Maka-Maka is a very adult yuri (read: lesbian) erotic comedy. The new manga, Devil, is about “genetically designed vampires in a sci-fi police drama set in Tokyo.” We can only hope for a few zombies and robots.

Despite the recent demise of Shojo Beat, (a monthly manga magazine for girls) Viz has announced an English version of Shonen Sunday, a weekly mangazine. This one will be released in “real time” with its Japanese counterpart on the Internet. Print versions will also exist in some capacity. One only wishes these manga publisher websites would get a web-developer who made their navigation more obvious. Thanks for making me feel old, Shonen Sunday!

As I write this the Eisner Awards are happening. Check back for updates, but I know that Vertical, Inc. and Osamu Tezuka (the MW guy) have won awards for Dororo.

This is a fun read about more of the Tron Legacy viral campaign and the scavenger hunt they had last night.  Of course you have seen the link we posted earlier today for the teaser trailer. People are loving this one. Here are some pics from Flynn’s Arcade.

There are varying opinions on Marvel’s announcement about Marvelman. Not sure if this is the “biggest news” of Comic-Con, and am not sure how many jaws are still on the floor, but Marvel now has the rights to Marvelman.

The Battlestar Galactica panel had some interesting reveals. Edwards James Olmos is calling The Plan “the Bible” of BSG and that watching it is going to make BSG fans want to watch the whole series again. I already want to watch the whole series again, but here some more juicy nuggets from the panel.

It isn’t that surprising at the Book of Eli panel that Gary Oldman was asked about the next Batman movie. It also isn’t surprising that Oldman revealed that production would start in 2010 for a 2012 release, and that “you didn’t hear that from me.”

The Big Bang Theory has been renewed for two more seasons.

Lots of Star Wars news today, though nothing really groundbreaking. DLC for The Force Unleashed includes a cameo from Boba Fett. You can read about that and the Ultimate Sith Edition here. There was talk of Season 2 of The Clone Wars at two panels today. (This is probably more directed at the Sci Guys’ little guys than the Sci Guys ourselves, but I didn’t dislike the first season at all.) The trailer for the next Clone Wars video game was released today, too.

Is it shocking at all that Jackie Earle “Rorschach” Haley is going to own the new A Nightmare on Elm Street remake? More about it here.

And there is so much more to write about . . . check back for more updates . . .

UPDATE: List of Eisner winners here.

I am really happy seeing Dororo, BPRD, The Umbrella Academy, Hellboy, and Creepy get some well-deserved recognition.

UPDATE 2: The Alice in Wonderland trailer is now online.

    Thanks for the new stuff you have disclosed in your post. One thing I would really like to comment on is that FSBO human relationships are built after a while. By launching yourself to owners the first weekend break their FSBO is actually announced, ahead of masses begin calling on Thursday, you generate a good link. By sending them methods, educational materials, free records, and forms, you become a great ally. Through a personal interest in them in addition to their situation, you build a solid interconnection that, on many occasions, pays off when the owners decide to go with a broker they know as well as trust – preferably you actually.

    Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
