Comi-Con Website

Special Star Wars thingy

Special Guests

Helpful Hints from Jill ;)  (taken from her posts!!)

Quote

".....Saturday is usually the best day and is the day I usually drive down for...

I've been to Comic Con for years and years. I know the ins and outs and I know how to power through the place and make the most of my time, but I still wind up missing stuff because there just aren't enough hours in the day.

If you've never been before, I think you'll really be missing out if you only attend for one day."

Quote

"Sorry, but no, there's NOTHING casual about Comic-Con. There's just a million things going on at once. How can I explain this?

Okay, in one typical HOUR of this con:

3 actors and (for example) JMS signing in the autograph area (only time to get in line for one or two)

3 different panels going on at opposite ends of the convention center:
1. an advance presentation on (for example) the Matrix Reloaded with special guests Carrie Ann Moss, and three other actors plus a production designer and the directors
2. a presentation by FOX with upcoming info on the next Star Wars film -- they've brought a sneak peek plus props
3. a TV writers panel featuring twelve fascinating SF/F writers

In the dealers room (which you haven't had time to shop in yet -- which takes several hours to get through), there's another signing going on with (for example) Sam Raimi.

And a previously unannounced signing by (for example) John Carpenter is happening at some booth in the dealer's room and tickets for that signing were available by raffle for the previous two hours but you just heard about it now.

Also, you haven't seen the art show yet, plus you wanted to grab a bite to eat

Plus, you've just heard the rumor that someone saw (for example) Joss Whedon shopping in the dealers room just five aisles away from you.

And you have to get through the tens of thousands of people walking around the HUGE convention center to get to anything. And everything you want is usually as far apart as possible.

This is just a typical HOUR of Comic-Con. There's usually more going on than that, but that was the type of thing that's usually going on.  Note, the above were examples, not actual panels for this year's con."

Quote

"That's seriously what it's like and your head spins so fast as you have to make these decisions of which panel or signing or shopping to do, knowing you're sacrificing seeing twelve other incredible things/panels/people by whatever choice you make.  Oh, and of course, at one panel they're giving away free posters, at another, a free shirt and at yet another free frisbees or somesuch... if you happen to be at the right end of the room at the right time.

Oh, and then there's the freebie table up by the autograph/entry area which is constantly replenished with different free posters and pins and stuff all day every day, plus there are freebie posters and shirts and stuff given away down in the dealers room if you happen to be at the right booth at the right time!

Phew.

And bob, with literally hundreds of guests and another thousand or so attending professionals, plus guests' schedules changing all the time... well, the best word is probably... chaotic. Even the con-runners can't keep track of it all. Just accept that you're bound to miss something absolutely wonderful that will make you cry for having missed it because you didn't hear about it in time -- happens to me every year. Last year I missed the previously unannounced Star Trek: Nemesis presentation with free Nemesis goodies handed out (though some wound up on the freebie table outside for five minutes before they were gone). Another year I missed Richard O'Brien whom I worship, idolize and adore and literally missed his signing by half an hour. I was devastated. But that kind of stuff happens at Comic-Con. There's always a million things going on and no way to find out about it all in time. Plus a lot of the big panels are standing room only or even impossible to get into as the room is full beyond capacity. 

As for the Scapers, I bet there would be an announced panel (either previously announced or posted at the con) on one day, plus several of the actors signing in the autograph area all weekend long, especially those, like David Franklin and Virginia Hey (who's very likely to be there as she's now a Southern California convention regular), who have several cons under their belts and are used to sitting and selling their pics all day.

I suggest checking and rechecking signing/schedule updates as often as possible posted in both the autograph area and the dealers room. But you'll still miss something. It's impossible not to."

Quote

"Basically, wear your running shoes, carry supplies and bring spending money.

Prepare to be constantly on the run -- CHECK SCHEDULES EVERYWHERE!

Check in with everyone else -- someone may have heard of a schedule change or signing or panel that you haven't heard about.

Exchange cell phone numbers ahead of time to keep in touch -- last year I was going to meet a friend at the con at a certain time. I was up at the autograph area checking the schedule (did I mention you should constantly check schedules in the autograph area and the dealers' room?) and I hadn't found my friend yet. So I called her on her cell and said "Where are you?" She laughed and said, "heading right for you -- I'm walking into the convention center right now!" We found each other fairly quickly.

Hmm, what else?

Oh! Poster tubes! I guarantee you, you WILL pick up freebie posters. Some dealers sell portable poster tubes which are basically a long cardboard tube with a string attached to each end so you can sling it across yourself and protect your freebie posters. But why spend that $5 or whatever? I bring a large plastic bag or a tote bag and a large cardboard tube (the cardboard roll from wrapping paper works, or if you have an actual poster tube) that I keep in the bag and put posters in it as I gather them. I know it sounds unwieldy, but trust me, YOU WILL get free posters and they will get crumpled if you try carrying them without 'protection'.  So yeah, that's my other piece of advice -- bring either a plastic bag or a tote bag to carry stuff in (freebie stuff or stuff you buy -- though some dealers will give you a bag if you buy stuff, but not all) and a poster tube for your freebie posters. If you don't have a poster tube or a wrapping paper roll, bring the cardboard tube from paper towels -- yes it's tiny, but if you roll your posters tightly, it will keep them from being as banged around.

And again, I'd say that Saturday is usually the best day, but either Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday (depending on panel scheduling) would be worth attending."

Quote

"Oh, also, the con will post a tentative/likely schedule on their site a week or two before the con -- I generally use that as a guide to make an early plan of panels I'd like to see.

When I get to the con -- I check the schedule updates to make sure those panels are still happening and figure out which rooms they'll be in. As of last year, the con has finally tried to organize the "TV track" into one of the main rooms and the "Movie track" into the other main room so people who are partial to one or the other can stay for several hours of programming without constantly switching rooms and losing their seats. Hopefully they'll do that again this year.

Then I check the dealers' room schedule and the autograph area schedule and plug in to my 'plan' any additions from those schedules.

Then I figure out which panels/events I 'have' to see, vs. those I can do without so I'll know when I'll have two or three hours to 'powershop' through the dealers room.

Also, while I try to give myself a block of time in the dealers room (including any signings I may want to attend down there), I try to space the panels as a 'breather' time to sit down occasionally -- it's very easy to get winded with all the running around.

On the dealers room -- it's separated into a few different sections -- regular and classic comics, indie comics, comics artists who actually draw and sign at various booths, anime, then there are the various book dealers, toys/collectibles dealers and in the very center of the room are the 'big booths' -- Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Inkworks, publishers like Del Rey, sometimes a big props area from an upcoming movie (like the actual huge Time Machine prop last year) etc. The big booths have huge displays, and signings all day long. If you are not a comics person DO NOT SKIP THESE BOOTHS! They have media signings and freebie giveaways there all day long, not just comic books! Remember -- comics have media tie ins! The Witchblade signings of the TV shows' actors were at the Top Cow (comic book) booth. Marvel had the Sam Raimi signing for the Spiderman movie. Etc. The Inkworks booth usually gives away a free promo set of cards including cards from whatever their latest properties are -- like last year I think there was a ScoobyDoo card, an Osbournes card, an Alias card, etc. They have given away Buffy, Angel and Andromeda cards in the past as well. One of the things I missed one year -- the first Andromeda promo card!

Your version of this con may be a lot less intensive/busy than mine  but this is how I get as much possible into one day.

Oh, I may have mentioned this before, but it's worth repeating again -- often you're faced with the choice of do I attend this person's panel or do I get in line for their signing afterwards? Now that's a tough one. Sometimes signing tickets (generally for dealers room signings) are handed out ahead of time -- that's the ideal -- get a ticket, go watch the panel, come back for the signing. But sometimes you have to make the hard choice -- do I go see the panel and hope the person/people will sign for a long enough time that you'll get something autographed and get to talk to them -- or miss the panel in order to get early into the line to guarantee you'll get to talk with them. For different guests, I make different decisions. Some years, I see no panels at all, because it's more important to me to meet the people face to face at the signing. Other years, I miss the signings because I just want to see the panels. You never know who will show up at the panels. Particularly if they are big panels on big upcoming movies -- they usually surprise the crowd with a big guest or three.  And sometimes, signing tickets are handed out to a lucky group who attend the panels! So again, make your decisions carefully, but accept you're bound to miss someone!"

Tips from EmeraldCity

Quote

They generally don't post a schedule in advance, but on Wednesday which is preview night, once you have registered, you get a really nice program that has the schedule for the weekend......... The schedule is HUGE!!!!!!!

Friday and Saturdays are the busiest days with Saturday being the day all the big studios do their dog and pony shows in "Room 20"

......Sundays are generally the slower day, but that is when you can get some good deals on "stuff".

KRAD's (Keith) Schedule:

Updated: "I am presently scheduled for a panel Saturday from 12-1.30pm, which will be followed by a big autographing session.

The panel is on writing tie-in novels, and will be moderated by Maryelizabeth Hart of Mysterious Galaxy Books. The panel will include myself, Max Allan Collins (tons of tie-ins, most recently the CSI novels), Troy Denning (many recent Star Wars novels), Nancy Holder (tons of Buffy and Angel novels, among others), Greg Keyes (the B5 Psi-Corps trilogy, more Star Wars novels), and Matthew Woodring Stover (yet still more Star Wars novels). All of us are then scheduled to do an autographing right after the panel in the autographing area."


Quote

I'll be there Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I have no idea what kind of schedule I'm going to have, though. I'm presuming there'll be an autographing at the autograph area, and I'll be doing a panel or three.

But I have no idea what my schedule will be just yet.

As for books, I won't be selling any personally, but if the store Mysterious Galaxy has a booth there (as they often do), they are very likely to have my books available. (MG also often does signings at their booth at the con. If so, I'll likely be signing there as well.)

UPDATED 6/17/03

Special Guests people want to see:


The Farscape cast members that will be appearing SO FAR are Ben Browder, Francesca Buller, Lani Tupu, Wayne Pygram, Jonathan Hardy, David Franklin and Virginia Hey.

Updated by Emeraldcity! "....the tentative schedule for the Farscape panel is 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm on FRIDAY!!!!!! Just wanted to give you a heads up. Now that is tentative at this point, but I don't think it will change."

Fascape Actors: Esp. Lani Tupu, who had many posts dedicated to him. ;)

Quote

by KRAD: All I know is that Lani Tupu, Jonathan Hardy, David Franklin, and Raelee Hill were all talking about attending Comic-Con when I met them at Galaxy Con in Baltimore last month.

Quote

By EmeraldCity: I will be there with "my boys". And if you are curious, my boys are Lani Tupu, Jonathan Hardy, and Wayne Pygram. Since I visited here last many moons ago, I got myself a new job......... that is convention manager for several Farscape cast members!!! So it would be great, even though I will be working, for everyone to stop by and say "hi"!!!!!!!!!

Yes, the boys will be at Comic Con, and so will Virginia Hey. There will most likely be a couple more Farscape guests coming as well, I am just waiting for a final word. I will let you all know when that is finalized.......

It was suggested in the other thread by G and Jid that we might bring some things for the rooms....such as knives, food to have lunch with instead of buying, etc.  Some of this is a personal thing--I'd think everyone would bring their own food or buy it or split it with someone if they wanted.

But I'm going to try to bring my mom's big icechest and some knives for cutting stuff.  Oh, yeah, and my favorite Margarita mix just in case they don't have it in SD. ;)

Anyone else have any ideas of what we might need or want?

^ Yes, that's the unfortunate thing about booking in a different quarter than you intend to fly particularly in this economy with so many airlines cutting back or shifting their routes.  

I still haven't decided on Sunday or Monday yet.  I need to check on my comp time, holidays, and such.  Perhaps I can earn some more comp time soon so I don't feel like I'm pushing it to take that extra day.

I do have a room booked at a B&B in Old Town so I have a place to stay. I haven't decided on renting a car yet though someone here at work suggested I might just rent the car for the days I intend to do things out of the Old Town/DownTown area of San Diego because parking is an issue. I've also been told that San Diego is very easy to walk.
