A Comic-Con Noob Shares Her Experiences -- Preview Night
July 21st, 2012 3:39AM

Hello and welcome to the first of my blog entries. What better topic to tackle than San Diego's most famous convention, Comic-Con? We were lucky enough to get badges for all four nights plus preview night so Wednesday, July 11 found us awake at dark o'clock and on our way to the airport. By the time we'd flown across the country, checked in to our hotel and boarded the complimentary shuttle it was past the time the convention center had opened to allow preview night attendees to converge. We didn't realize at the time what this was going to mean but now I can tell you it meant having to switch modes of public transportation and arriving in time to join what felt like 75,000 other people. Of course that number doesn't take into account the thousands of people who were already in line for Thursday's "Twilight" panel.

If you have any kind of claustrophobia preview night will send you into a full-blown panic attack. We were jostled about relentlessly as we moved at a speed of negative warp infinity. We ended up missing the almost four-hour block of pilot screenings which was supposed to be the big draw of the night but by the time we managed to make our way down one side of the exhibit hall it seemed like a fruitless endeavor for us to backtrack and then find the end of the line. I'm not sure what we're going to try to do preview night next year…It seemed like its benefit was perhaps a slightly easier time of buying the official T-shirt but that's about it. Once the exhibit hall closed we decided to catch the bus, find some food, and catch some zzz’s.
