San Diego Comic-Con International 2012: Preview Night!

Good Morning (12:01, here) from San Diego, California!

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.

My plans for San Diego Comic-Con 2012

Boys and girls. How are we?

As most of you who follow me on Twitter or know me personally know, next week I will be attending San Diego Comic-Con. For the second year in a row, I will be live blogging the event, updating as I go through the day with pics and panel summaries.

This year, however, I’ve also agreed to cover the event for Cineplex.com, the official site of Canada’s largest chain of movie theatres. It’s an exciting opportunity for me, as it will give my coverage of the event exposure to a large audience… hopefully we’ll have some new people swinging through as a result!

In terms of how that will impact my posting here, I’m still going to update throughout the day with pics and blurbs about going on, but my “Day in Review” posts will probably be posted there, and not here. I’ll still post a link for everyone so that you can head over and check them out!

Meanwhile, after the break is my summary of panels that I intend to attend and cover. Check it out!
