We are just hours away from  the first day of San Diego Comic-Con. Sure Wednesday is Preview Night but since the doors will be opening, let's make it official. This is Comic Vine's third year covering the craziness that goes on and we're going with the biggest crew we've ever assembled.

Besides me and Sara, we will be bringing video producers Joey and Ana. Ethan (Red LAMP) and Daniel (Riezner) will be along as well as Mat (Inferiorego) and Tom (Tom Pinchuk). You would think that was enough but no, we're bringing along more. Norm from Tested.com will be there snapping away photos and covering any major happenings he comes across and Rorie from Screened.com will be there as well to cover the major movie and TV news that will be brewing. Sora_thekey will be on hand to assist us and mrrpm01 will be hanging with us showing off his amazing costumes that you've most likely seen in the past, as well as some new amazing ones. (Updated)
 == TEASER ==
How can you keep up with everything that we see? Here on Comic Vine we will post videos daily letting you see the interviews we do plus a daily update on what you can look forward to seeing. As you wait for the videos to go live, you can keep up to date on what's happening through our Twitter accounts:

@ComicVine - The official Comic Vine account letting you know what we're doing.
@GManFromHeck - My account pointing out some of the things I come across.
@Babs_SaraLima - Babs will let you know what interviews she's doing and what she's eating for lunch.
@Inferiorego - We're planning on having Mat cover Hall H, the big movie hall so he'll tell you all about Green Lantern and the Avengers.
@TomPinchuk - When he's not busy signing copies of Hybrid Bastards, he'll be out doing "The Tom Pinchuk Show."
@red_lamp - As soon as he arrives, his plan is to find the booth babes.
@riezner - Daniel holds the secret to where the Comic Vine SDCC t-shirts will be given away at.
@mmrp01 - Eddie will be dressed to kill in his homemade costumes.
@sora_thekey - will be at our mercy, doing whatever we ask him to do.
@nchan - Norm will be walking around snapping pics so you'll feel like you're here. Say cheese.
@frailgesture - Rorie will have to put up with Inferiorego's cravings for KFC as he does a complete movie coverage for Screened.com.
@HDJoey - When not doing Cyclops impressions for the fans, Joey and Ana will be filming and editing all our videos.
 
Don't forget about our Meet-up Friday night at Sloppy Joey's (more info. here).

If you thought our SDCC coverage last year was killer, you ain't seen nothing yet. As we arrive for Preview Night, make sure you stop us and say hello when you see us. We have a busy schedule interview comic creators and animation voice actors. This is going to be the biggest Comic-Con yet. Hope to see you there.

Apparently Ana isn't good enough to have her Twitter account shown to the masses :P

#20 Posted by ShirEPanjshir (588 posts) - - Show Bio

God I wish I could be there ;( But all we have here in Belgium is FACTS, which isn't anywhere near as spectacular as SDCC. Must move to the US. Soon!

Have a great time there, you guys.

@G-Man:  Can you just make a twitter list on your comicvine account like you have for editors? That way it will be much easier to follow.
#23 Posted by sora_thekey (8162 posts) - - Show Bio

@sora_thekey - will be at our mercy, doing whatever we ask him to do. 


Yes I will!
I will do everything except clean windows.... the convention center has staff for that kind of stuff  See you guys later today!

Are you guys going to be there all four days?
I could only get tickets to Sundays... CC =/

#26 Posted by MichelleEaley (11 posts) - - Show Bio

Have fun.  I hope you guys report on comic related news and not tangent stuff like GLEE.  I like the show, but it has no business being at Comic Con

#27 Posted by gpbmike (182 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow, so many of your guys going. You didn't need someone to write some javascript for you down there?!

KFCs are kind of rare in San Diego. I only know of 2 KFCs within 20 minute drive of downtown. One in Mission Valley area (on Friar's I think, near Mission Gorge) and one in North Park.
 
As a born and raised Kentuckian ( :) ) living in San Diego (10+ years), I think you're a bit out of luck if you're looking for KFC in the downtown area. Although, there might be one in Horton's Plaza food court - I haven't been there in a while.

I've only been to SDCC once and it was insane.  I thought the convention hall I had been to in the past were huge, but no comparison to SDCC!

Agreed with this statement.

Wish I was there, standing in line, standing in line, running, standing in the wrong line, punching a man dressed as a giant baby.  Or was it a gaint baby?  hmm...
