is it that time again? well, today is "hotel reservation day", so maybe.
comic-con is the nerdiest gathering of all the nerd gatherings. this year is the 40th one. today is march 19, and 4-day passes are already sold out - this year will be big. i would suggest that if you want to go, buy your individual day passes as soon as possible. you can find information on comic-con, hotel rooms, etc. at the official site, http://www.comic-con.org/cci/index.php .
i post a thread about it every year because i consistently have more fun and meet more cool people each time i go. this is not something only for people who like comic books - there's tons of stuff if you like sci-fi, horror, fantasy, comedy, animation, film, etc. it's a giant event i think everyone should experience at least once.
information on events/panels won't be up until just before the event, but past years have had things like performances from tenacious d, retrospectives on tv funhouse, several panels with the cast/writers of the sarah silverman program, etc. tim and eric have done a free outdoor picnic/party each year for the last few years that's lots of fun.
here are 100 pictures from last year's con to get you excited. i am no liezl but i would say it is worth it to go even if all you do is take pictures.
