As you know, we teased you guys unmercifully about a ‘July Surprise’ for a while…it was fun seeing the many guesses that you all made in reference as to what that ‘July Surprise’ just might be,…was it a new Tom Cruise film? Special project? Milestone? Special giveaway? Whaaaat could it beeeeee?!?!? (P.S., BTW, there might be another surprise for you guys found in this blog somewhere…;))

We thought for sure someone would put 2 and 2 together and figure it out but surprisingly, nobody, ok, 1 or 2 of you guessed that TOM would be showing up at his FIRST COMIC-CON EVER!
