Comic Con: Day 1 Hunting and Escaping

We took the insanely long 2 hr. drive down to San Diego on Thursday to give all our Geek brothers and sisters the low-down on the epic convention known as Comic Con!!! First off we got to our motel 30 miles away from San Diego because the price per night at a hotel in San Diego for that particular weekend would have forced us to get a loan to pay for the three nights we needed to be there. We found a nice little place, checked in around 9am and then jettisoned off to the show. When we got into San Diego we passed the convention center and I swore Jesus must have been giving out miracles because there were thousands of people lined up outside. AnnaMay and I looked over in awe at the Geeky magnitude of it all (this being our first Comic Con and all). Then we spent the rest of the day finding a parking spot. Well it felt like the rest of the day at least, easily the hardest part of going to Comic Con is finding decent parking, and if your lucky enough to find parking within 10 blocks of the center you’ll be paying out the nose, but that’s capitalism so what are you going to do? We took the long trek over, got our passes just soon enough to not get in to the Paramount Panel. That was pretty disappointing considering they talked about Iron Man and the new Star Trek, but the line was outside the door and around the building and we didn’t have a chance to get in.

Comic-Con is on the Horizon

The excitement is brewing as we finalize our plans (yeah we got a late start) to make our trek for Comic-Con International in San Diego. We have talked to people about getting interviews (keep your fingers crossed) and there are plenty of booths that we look forward to checking out.

You may have heard our Heroes Extravaganza from June 23 and hopefully we can get some more interviews from the cast. Speaking of Heroes (and as a follow up to one of Dave’s old posts) I hear that deals are almost complete to have Zachary Quinto play Spock in the new Star Trek film.

OK, back to Comic-Con. We will try to blog while we are there (asuming we can actually get online at our hotel or is it a motel well the cheap place we’re staying) but if we can’t you can be sure there will be various long posts all about it as soon as we get back!

We’ll take plenty of pictures and put them up on our website. At some point we’ll even get those pics from the Kwik-E-Mart up. Sorry, we’ve been busy. We’re going to try and get some video too so stay tuned!

We hope that everyone else that’s going to Comic-Con has a great time and maybe we’ll see you there!!
