Tom Spurgeon, on his excellent Comics Reporter website, has posted his annual guide to SDCC. This is a great resource, particularly for first time con attendees. It covers everything; travel plans, the best hotels, best places to eat, transportation to the convention center, parking, what to take with you to the show, and much more.Linky
Besides being incredibly informative, Tom's article is also hysterical. Here's an excerpt:Be friendly and courteous and open to new experiences and you will probably see some amazing sights, meet lots of nice people, chat with a few art heroes and even get in a good dose of informal networking. People are there to meet and be met. As is the case with summer camp and jury duty, people make convention insta-buddies all the time, and sometimes they develop into enduring friendships. On the other hand, snort loudly, muscle into conversations and fire off abrasive commentary in the faces of people you don't know, and you will probably be hired by Diamond. Ha ha, I'm just kidding. You will have your choice of comics-related jobs.
(Less than two months to go, peeps. Time to start making plans!)
