Comic-Con kicks off in earnest, today, but last night I was one of about 10,000 people who had tickets for Preview Night! Preview Night is where Comic-Con opens the doors early, and allows attendees to have a look around without all the crowds. It’s only available to people purchasing tickets for all four days, and even then, only a certain number of tickets are made available on a first come, first serve basis.
It’s a chance to roam the floor with slightly more elbow room, check out all the booths and vendors, and get a first crack at a ton of exclusives. It’s a great chance to get a feel for what’s where, who’s there, and what’s what before the madness kicks in.
For me, it was a long haul across the country, a lot of scrambling to get things right and ready, dealing with your typical Comic-Con staff almost snafu, and then a hectic night of jostling through the crowds, snapping pics and tweeting away… before heading back to write it all up. I’m closing in on 24 hrs without sleep, let’s see how fun this post turns out!
