Comic-Con 2008 upcoming

July 28, 2008

You’ve got to love the sore feet, sore shoulders and sleepy feeling of a good ol’ fashioned Comic-Con weekend. It was a blast and it wasn’t at the same time. To be quite honest, now that it’s become trendy to go to the Con, the crowding has become super annoying.

I’m not one to care about whether or not something is trendy, no, what I mean to say is that because it’s trendy it’s crowded and that makes it less enjoyable. How so? Well, picture trying to get in for the Heroes forum and realizing that not only did coming an hour and a half early to get in line availed you nothing, but in looking for the end of the line you realized you’ve done a lap around the building–THE ENTIRE OUTSIDE OF THE SAN DIEGO CONVENTION CENTER.

Still, despite that annoying part, it was in no way a loss going. I got lots of swag, got to go to a fair few of the forums I wanted to go to, saw upcoming previews and found new things to be interested in. (And yes, I made it in to the Avatar panel, that’ll be a story for the sharing).

I had to catch up at work for being gone so long, but I plan to have at least the first day posted for you.

And for the record, I’m seriously considering going to WonderCon instead, simply to be able to get into the forums I came out to the Con in the first place to see. Anyways, time will tell. See you soon.


Comic-Con 2008

July 21, 2008

The time has finally arrived–at least nearly.

I’ll be heading out to San Diego on Wednesday for the Con, and if internet access is available at the condo I’m staying at, I’ll try to post entries on what’s happening at the Con. If not, look for Comic-Con entries next week.

For those who have never been to Comic-Con, it is an event you should check out at least once in your lifetime. They promote everything from TV shows, to movies, to comics, to collectables, and some celebrities present. I mostly go to see the booths and attend forums. They also often show sneak peeks at upcoming movies. 🙂

Anyways, more on Wednesday or next Monday, depending on internet availability.

(And yes, Avatar sum-up is on its way, just busier than usual).
