SDCC 2010 Con Report
San Diego Comic Con is a convention unlike any other. With movie studios vying for fans to clamor their booth, with comic companies vying to get your attention with various creator signings, and with stores competing against each other for your money, San Diego is a perfect mix of chaos and pop culture. Every year, thousands make the trek out to see some of the biggest stars in Hollywood talk about their latest projects or to meet some of their favorite writers and artists. Others love to enjoy the cosplay, and some just come to witness the insanity on the show floor.
This Comic Con was my 6th year at Comic Con, and I was used to the hustle and bustle of the show, perhaps even feeling jaded and definitely taking it for granted. But going to the press panels and roundtables, meeting some of the stars of big movies and TV shows, I had to admit I felt a little star struck and felt the buzz that I used to have going to the show for the first time in a very long time.
Here are some pictures I took there, so for those that couldn’t come, it’s like you came along with me on the journey!
Line for tickets. Holy moley.
Line for Hall H for Tron. Insane. Longer than Twilight last year.
