Comic-Con Adventures - Part Two
A convention is a huge event which requires amazing organization on every level. I believe the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con was successful in this endeavor.
However, with over 125,000 people gathered in one place at any one time, chaos is bound to ensue.
Case in point, trying to attend the various TV, movie, and author panels held throughout the "Con". Imagine, lines snaking down convention halls, out to convention patios, down stairs and around convention buildings. Now we all know convention halls are huge, but this is ridiculous. Every panel I tried to attend was filled hours earlier than the actual start date. Now I know some people like to spend hours in lines, I'm just not one of them.
I'll still enjoy the cool displays like the one below. I imagine this will be gracing my living room in the next year or so:
In conclusion, I believe the Con is doing all it can to cover all the bases when it comes to interesting panels to attend, I'm just not going to be one of those people who sees them anymore.
