After attending my first San Diego Comic Con, I have returned with a new understanding and appreciation of the event. Not a comic book convention by any stretch of the imagination, Comic Con is the pinnacle of pop-culture conventions. There you will find stars of television and film, books, toys, displays, previews, comics, artists, props, costumes, games, and anything to do with entertainment in the modern age. The Comic Con atmosphere crackles with electricity, with anticipation, and exuberance. It is a visual feast of cosplay and people-watching. It is a festival of sights, sounds, emotion, and intrigue as you are swept along with the crowd to be informed, entertained, and bewildered.
At the conclusion of each day, you cash out, exhausted from walking for hours and being tossed here and there on the waves of 130,000 people going 130,000 different directions — but you don’t care. You crash for perhaps four or five hours but wake the next day, eager for the experience to continue. But what to do? For the uninitiated, allow me to break down the basics of Comic Con, on its most fundamental level.[button link=”http://www.ripcordless.com/comic-con-2012/” color=”black” newwindow=”yes”] Read More About Comic Con >>[/button]
