The Annual Comic-Con Hype Train Begins by Craig Kerbrat

I feel the need to write about something, so Comic-Con is as good a thing as any. Once again, we're in that part of the year when Comic-Con is still far enough away that it feels like forever, but close enough that all of the planning pieces are starting to come together. 

After two attempts, Andrea, Ann and I managed to score 4-Day badges to Comic-Con (sadly, without Preview Night). My friend John lucked out with Thursday and Sunday badges for his first ever Comic-Con, so we'll be a foursome this year. And we even managed to score our hotel before Hotepocalypse happens, so we're a step ahead!

But all of this planning makes me want to leave now. It's good that we're not leaving now, because I'm not actually ready. There's still three months of saving to take advantage of, and we're still hoping flights will drop to reasonable rates before we go. 

Still, I'm excited. You'd think that after 6 years some of the excitement would wear off. But not so much. I'm looking forward to the excited crowds, the exclusive collectibles, the announcements and sneak peeks, the great restaurants, and the heat and beauty of San Diego. And everything unexpected. 

One day I'll figure out how to document San Diego Comic-Con to properly convey why I love it so much. Maybe lucky number seven will finally be the year.
