Some guy in Hall H at Comic-Con was stabbed in the face with a pen because he wouldn't change seats. Crazy! I'm not joking!
Within the hour, actual news reports start showing up on sites like Bleeding Cool and Entertainment Weekly. And not long after that, we've got video of the guy being taken away by police and a new report from Comic Book Resources talking with the police about the incident.
