San Diego Comic-Con/Comic-Con International Starts Tomorrow

So, the big ol' comic-con known as San Diego Comic-Con/Comic-Con International happens tomorrow. As I remarked when it was a bit longer away, I won't be there. I mean, if I could get press access and have someone pay for my room and board I'd happily attend the show, but even if my little ol' blog is somewhat known these days, I doubt anyone is chomping at the bit to put-up a chunk of cash so I can offer my trademark snarky observations on a big comic-con (should someone want to do so though, feel free to offer to send me to NYCC). Anyways, preview night occurred today--e.g. the day that isn't open to the public--but starting tomorrow we will get all kinds of comic-book, toy, television, and movie news (oh, and video-games more and more lately too), and crowds will swarm to purchase those sweet, sweet exclusive goods.

Some of the biggest draws for SDCC/CCI in terms of products seem to be cool comic-book variant covers, Funko Pops, Lego, and basically anything that fits the three criteria of being cool, limited, and in high-demand. The show will also be packed with tons of celebrities and creators, cosplayers, and fans of all kinds of popular culture. I imagine it should hopefully be a good show and I'll of course discuss anything I find interesting enough to report on during as well as after the show.
