'Pac-Man' belt is a wow find at WonderCon

'Pac-Man' belt is all the retro-rage.

While I was at the three-day WonderCon convention in San Francisco this past weekend, not only did I get an eyeful of loads of comics books and celebrities like the original Lois Lane, Noel Neill; Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson; and Chase Masterson (Leeta from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine). I also got some great schwag.

Standing toward the back of the hall at Moscone South was what appeared to be a majestic Borg cube-esque structure of T-shirts, hoodies and the like. It was there that I not only found a classic Amazing Spidey shirt, but a Namco Pac-Man belt.

The buckle features a yellow Pac-Man, while the cloth belt has Blinkey, Pinkey, Inkey and the rest of the ghost gang. No word yet on a Ms. Pac-Man belt, which would be equally rad. If you aren't going to a comic book convention any time soon, but are jonesing for what I've decided is the retro belt of the season, check out this site, where the belt sells for $10.

When I wasn't shopping for geek-related apparal, I was talking about technology and modern-day comics with comic book artists such as Phil Jimenez of DC/Marvel comics, writers like Judd Winick of DC Comics, and Dan Vado, owner of SLG publishing.
