I haven’t been to San Diego Comic-Con since 2008. I was thinking about it, and I may not have even left the NY/NJ area since then. I’m going this year though! I had to buy four single-day tickets, since they were sold out of the full four-day passes by the time I got to the head of the “line”, so no preview night.
And I booked a hotel in Mission Valley, so no walking back and forth to the convention center. We’ll see how the convention shuttle situation works out. I remember it being a bit of an issue in 2008. It’s always inconvenient to stay far enough away that you can’t go back to your hotel mid-day to drop stuff off.
But hey, it’s Comic-Con! How could it *not* be fun?
