San Diego Comic Con, that is.
Just under a month away now, SDCC will take place from July 21st to 24th at the San Diego Convention Center. All tickets are sold out and have been since February 5th, the day that ticket sales finally went live. (Four day badge resales sold out within an hour on June 24th. Single day badge resales have yet to go live.) Pretty soon SDCC is going to be a dynastic event—if you don’t buy your tickets for next year’s Con at the current Con, you won’t be going. (Well, until some people die and whatnot.)
This is my third year going, and I intend to go every year until I die or the Con dies (guess which’ll come first).
This brief guide contains some advice that’s common sense, as well as other tidbits that first-year Congoers might not have considered (I definitely didn’t back in 2009). This guide is also slanted towards people who are attending the Con on a budget.
