    For the past month, day-in, day-out my e-mail inbox is flooded with e-mails. "First look," "Media Alert," and "Big Announcement" are how the majority of the subjects start. Although mildly annoyed my personal inbox is flooded with e-mails that half the time I just peruse over, it finally hits me, I'm going to San Diego Comic Con. It's something I've always wanted to go to, but never really gotten around to, until this year. 
     
    I've been told by friends and acquaintances alike that it's just something you have to see for yourself. It's like a normal comic book convention on steroids. Sure, out in the old Midwestern city of Chicago, we have C2E2, which is still in its infancy, and hasn't quite come into its own yet, and we also have the dying beast that is Wizard World Chicago, a collection of random people in a warehouse type setting where the focus is more on entertainment and wrestling than comics, but us Chicagoans don't truly have the one con that California has, and that's why so many of us make the long and expensive trip to San Diego. 
     == TEASER ==
    I watched and read the coverage last here on ComicVine and in years past, watched it on that television network that used to be about video games. And the past week, I've spent a bit of time on the actual website to check out what's going on, and to me, it seems everything is going on at the same time. I think everyone and their mother has their own panel at SDCC. Aside from that, tickets sold out extremely quickly. I wasn't sure if that was normal or not, considering I've never been to a con that "sold out." The only thing that comes to mind when thinking about all of this is "insanity."
     
    I'm guessing it's the largest collection of like-minded people in the country. The vast majority of people there are all into one thing: comic books. As nerve-racking as getting everything together and trying to remember to pack everything as it is, a little bit of that flies out the window when I realize I'll be around thousands of other people who are also a little too into comic books. They too are there for the latest scoop on their favorite comic book characters or companies. They're there to find some deals on comic-related merchandise. They're there to avoid eating convention hot dogs. All-in-all, it's going to be a completely new experience, in a part of the country I've never been to before. I just hope I get enough sleep, and a maybe a trade or two.

    SDCC is something that I always figured was too big & too crammed, but I'd probably still go if given the chance.  Have a good time!

    Agreed, though I did enjoy the small one I went to back home, it was so much easier to see everything!

    I'd be very interested in going, but I'd have to fly over to the States to do that. So, somewhat reluctant. Though my Girlfriend said we should do it as a holiday - Go to the Comic-Con and then spend another week in California. 
     
    Fun times.

    After attending Comic-Con over the course of  20 years, I can safely say it  is not all about Comics. There has been a huge surge of Twilight-related attendees who are not part of the core comic demographic. The games presence is strong there as well.
    I sincerely hope you enjoy your trip G-Man because this year, more than any other, I really wish I could be there.

    Don't be disappointed if half the people there can't name any X-Men that wasn't in the movies. I'd figure that about half or more of the people there are visiting the TV, movies, and game booths. Those booths are always the most packed. Once you get over to the comics section, small press, and artists booths the crowds are quite reasonable. 
     
    I'd love for Comic-Con to split in half to solve the space issues and let Anaheim take the TV and movies (it's closer to LA/Hollywood anyways) and let SD keep the comics.
     
    There's another comic con in San Diego that's just for comics. It's sort of new and I miss it every time because I never know when it's going to happen. It's called the San Diego Quarterly Comic Con. It's much, much smaller and just focuses on comic book stuff.

    I approve of this idea!
    I have to say that this year is a really exciting year for me to be going... it's not my first time (actually I think its my 4th year), but it is my first time going to preview night!
     
    @Inferiorego: don't worry man! It is overwhelming at first, but Tony and Sara will guide you to the really worthwhile stuff... plus I'll be there to make it fun!

    That was my bad, no excuses. I apologize. 
    I was on a bender of videos with G-Man and just didn't do my due diligence to read the "by" line.

    The more I read about SDCC the more hyped I get for it. If I could keep myself from reading about the SDCC, then I might not be as excited :)
