So you’ve got your ticket, the hotel, maybe even reserved a parking spot. Are you in line yet? What?! Why not?!?! Unless you’re Eddie Ibrahim himself (Comic-Con Director of Programming), you’re going to have to stand in line for something. There’s no avoiding it. But unlike the title of this post suggests, there’s no reason to be lining up just yet… unless you’re a Twilight fan preparing for the panel at Comic-Con 2011 (please don’t let there be a Twilight panel this year… Eclipse will already be out… there’s no need to talk about it further…).
With lots of speculation on the variety of major panels at Comic-Con (and there will be some big ones), are you prepared to spend hours in line just to see a glimpse of next year’s Thor movie? Or maybe Green Lantern? How about a sneak peek at that Michael Chiklis/Julie Benz super family tv show, No Ordinary Family? Want to see the cast of Big Bang Theory or Psyche up close and in person (with 4000 other fans in the room)? Getting to see them is more than just getting in line and standing there for an hour or fifteen. You need supplies, you need timing, and most of all you need a plan. The Unauthorized San Diego Comic-Con Survival Guide will help you get where you need to be (and when you need to be there) for all of the major events taking place at the San Diego Comic-Con. Don’t get in line without it.
p.s. Here are a few of the (unconfirmed) panels that could be taking up a slot on the panel schedule (or they’ll have a presence at the show at the very least):
MOVIES: Batman 3, Green Lantern, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Tron: Legacy, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Resident Evil: Afterlife, Machete, Red Dawn, X-Men: First Class, Cars 2, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (one can only hope the cast will finally show up for the last hoorah).
TV: Chuck, Psyche, Big Bang Theory, Caprica, No Ordinary Family, V, True Blood, Clone Wars, Walking Dead, Dexter, Smallville, Fringe, Eureka, Glee, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Family Guy, Simpsons, Supernatural, Vampire Diaries, Archer, Castle, and tons more!
