With San Diego Comic-Con beginning today, it's still a work day for us. Let me start off by saying that I am in no way complaining about 'having to' go down to San Diego and immerse myself into this extraordinary event. 
 
This is my third year "working" the convention. I can't remember the last time I went to a convention and didn't "work." There is simply so much to do and see. The key is to balance the work and play part. You've heard the saying, "All work and no play..." (as well as "No beer and no TV makes Homer something something..."). 
 == TEASER ==
While last year was a blast, this year is going to be even better. We have so many great Whiskey Media people going that I can sit here at home, just a few hours before my flight down and not have to worry. I still need to finish packing. I haven't even really thought about who I'll be interviewing. 
 
While I may not be able to attend all the panels I'd love to see, I am going to enjoy the show as much as possible. I think everyone attending the show needs to realize how lucky they are just to be there. Back in March the show officially sold out (although some single days popped up now and then). Each year it gets bigger and bigger. There are so many more people that would love to go but simply can't. This will be the best convention of the year and I'm glad to be part of it. 
 
I hope to see some of you there. We are determined to give you some of the best Comic-Con coverage you'll be able to find. At the same time, we will do our best to simply enjoy being there.

Go crazy?
 DON'T MIND IF I DO!
 
Conventions look too stressful for me. I prefer to just kick back and relax whilst the hard-working people of Comic Vine do all the hard work.
