Topics:
  • Important San Diego Comic Con tips!
    • 1) Buy a ticket in advance / plan ahead
    • 2) fly direct
    • 3) bring your lego brickmaster catalog
    • 4) understand show 'exclusives' - waste of time if available later
    • 5) show fedEx is convenient but very expensive ($50 for 11lb box)
    • ?) bring a spare suitcase - cheaper even if airline charges you
    • ?) Wednesday preview night was mayhem
    • ?) bring a gaming system to entertain yourself in line
    • ?) plan your day ahead of time - decide must-see items and fill in the gaps.
    • ?) bring food and water
    • ?) use a backpack for your gear
    • ?) get a walking-distance hotel (probably through 'Travel Planners' group)
    • ?) keep your eyes open for extra unlisted events the companies are holding in the evenings
  • was more busy and crazy than toy fair + new york comic con * 2
  • after all those warnings, remember that it was actually a great time
  • so many options, only real problem is choosing what to do
  • can find just about anything for any related interest, represented.
  • comics themselves are almost second-fiddle to other things, at the 'comic' con
    • so many other competing pop culture options
  • Locke & Key comic author Joe Hill was cool, and has a blog: joehillfiction.com
  • Millenium Falcon sculptor - same guy did old and new versions!
  • Myth Busters panel - season premiere looks at possible faking of the moon landing.
  • Gears of War panel - main character voiced by Bender from Futurama
  • Why were panel rooms not always filled, even when closed as 'full'?
  • Intermission: This absurdly awesome news story inspired the following musical homage.
