I've been going to this con for about 8 years now, and will be going again this year. Anybody here ever been there?
San Diego Comic-Con International 2007
I used to go every year for about 5 years straight (though it was work-related, so I didn't have to pay a dime). I haven't been there in about 2 years now and seeing as how I"m in NY, I don't think I can make it out this year.
But if anyone's considering going, do it! It is impossible to describe. It used to be the greatest comic con going, and that was like 5 or 6 years ago. It's grown in size by an insane amount so there's even tons more cool stuff to see. Though seriously it is sooo big you will need a few days just to walk the entire floor! TOns of great Star Wars, anime, toys, small press, etc., as well as the obvious big guns like Marvel, DC, Hasbro, Mattel, etc. Dark Horse usually rolls out some big creators and Hollywood-related types. And the panels always have some big movie-related slant either with directors, actors and/or first looks at upcoming films. Damn. Now I really wanna go this year...
L.A.M.P., besides getting tix, you guys better register a hotel fast. Those things book up insanely fast, unless you don't mind being reallly far from the convention center...
And G-Man, dropping off the wife and kdis would be great except for 2 things... San Fran isn't that close to SD, so it's not like i can drop em and hop in the car. (Unless you guys are Driving down!) Plus, Mrs. Metal Head is still petrified o' flying and i'm betting it'll be another couple of years before we make it out West again sadly...
Maybe ComicVine should run a.. ahem... contest! Winner gets an all-expenses paid trip to San Diego Con!!! WOOO!!!
