With a little less than 100 days left till the San Diego Comic-Con, WonderCon is a wonderful comic convention to experience- especially if you are new to this world. My first WonderCon was in 2010 which was the last year it made it’s appearance in San Fran. Often described as the ‘little brother’ of Comic-Con, WonderCon has quickly grown up in it’s new home of Anaheim. With 3-Day and Saturday…

Tip of the Day #6: I Didn’t Get a Hotel, Now What?!

Tip of the Day #6: I Didn’t Get a Hotel, Now What?! #SDCC

For many, many fans traversed the last major obstacle on their journey to Comic-Con yesterday by securing a downtown hotel. Twitter was either a harmonious chorus of celebration or it was filled with the weeping and gnashing of teeth. Even though my ‘CONtourage’  was shut out for the first time, it was great to see many fans happy with what they got. You probably spent the rest of the day in…

For those of you that have survived the Comic-Con registration gauntlet over the past few months, your sights are now on the Hotel Registration on April 8 at 9 am PT. However, if you haven’t been to Comic-Con or San Diego before, it can feel pretty daunting trying to choose a hotel just based on price or distance. Unless you are a Jedi Master, it can be an intimidating experience. For you…

Top 5 Changes to Comic-Con 2014

ALERT: Top 5 Changes to the San Diego Comic-Con 2014: #SDCC

comic-con-kicks-off-with-fans-flicks-costumes-13974

If you have been going to Comic-Con over the past five years, you know that it has changed and evolved quite a bit. The agents of change can be attributed to the explosive growth of the superhero properties in Hollywood, the proliferation of genre television, and the general acceptance of geeks/nerds in mainstream culture. Since San Diego Comic-Con not only reflects the popular arts but also…

San Diego Comic-Con Tip of the Day: 4 Months and Counting… what to prepare next? #SDCC

It was an emotional weekend as 2014 Open Registration brought either cheers or tears to a myriad of SDCC hopefuls. Congrats to all the winners! Even though there was no way to please everyone, overall I think Comic-Con should be commended for a fairly seamless process. Not only was it crash-free but I think the they did a thorough job at preparing us for this sale. Still I know there were a lot…

Comic-Con Tip of the Day #2: Is Preview Night Worth It?

Comic-Con Tip of the Day #2: Is Preview Night Worth It? #SDCC

With badge sales this Saturday (3/15), a common Twitter question I get asked is about Preview Night. What is it and is it worth including in the San Diego Comic-Con experience. As the title suggests, Preview Night started as a casual evening preview of the showroom floor for the over eager attendee. With some venders still setting up their space, attendees were allowed a sneak peak at the floor.…

No surprise for Sac-Town with great guests like Chris Hemsworth, Norman Reedus, Stan Lee, and William Shatner. With my tight schedule, I probably…
