Holy cow, where did the spring go? That’s what I ask myself, at least, as I triple-check my hotel reservation, make the final arrangements, pack up my gear, weed through my laundry, wait patiently for Comic-Con to get their act together with MYSCHED, and sort out the next coming weeks before the big convention.
This is me and Lauren’s fourth Comic-Con, and while we’re far from old veterans, we know enough about the feeding frenzy to know where to stash our deodorant and stay medicated and hydrated, which, at the end of the day, is all you really need to know, plus some other fine tips. I think I can speak for Lauren when I say that each year gets a little bit less schizophrenic and just a hair bit easier. But no matter what, Comic-Con is and always will be a week long nerd binge (including recovery and any additional side-effects), synonymous with hiking it to Disneyland, sleeping on the pavement of Downtown Disney, and riding Space Mountain ten times in a row before you puke.
Having said that: I, for one, can’t wait!
So watch this space over the next couple of weeks. We’ll have pictures, exclusives, the dish, the skinny, whatever you want to call it… not to mention a few stories to tell. If you want to know the truth, it’s probably going to kick total ass.
