My Comic-Con 2012 experience: more fun, less overwhelming
On the way out of San Diego, we stumbled on Better Buzz Coffee. They make their signature iced coffee drinks in cocktail shakers. Imagine a mint iced coffee made with fresh muddled mint leaves.
“Why should Comic Con be an exclusive comics-only club? What is wrong with welcoming all things geeky? For four days, the spotlight is on the things we love. Isn’t that a good thing?”
I do not understand why people who have traditionally been excluded from the cool kids’ hangout are so determined to turn around and exclude someone else.
I was looking at the program grid this weekend. Events are color-coded for comics, movies, TV, gaming, sci-fi/fantasy, and “everything else.” The majority of the events were comics-related. Comics aren’t missing from comic-con. They’re the nucleus around which everything else is built.
An interesting perspective on what conferences and festivals have in common with each other, and how they’re different from everyday life.

The words “Comic-Con” and “Hotel” shouldn’t cause this much anxiety when used together.
