    Bit late now, but I hope you managed to cope with all the crowds. I went last year and although I really enjoyed myself, fighting through those crowds really took its toll after a while! Oh and the queues! It’s a wonder we managed to see anything. 🙂

    Re the crowds at Comic-Con: I’ve gone four years in a row and had fun each time (although not always the same amount of fun–it depends upon the events). The crowds can be off-putting, but you can find a way to deal with it. If you plan ahead and are willing to wait for the big things, you can reduce your frustration level. You can strike up a conversation with people in line, for instance, limit your exposure to the long lines, and various other things. It is also worth planning to see some of the smaller panels where you can get in and may often be surprised. For instance, Starship Smackdown can be loads of fun:


    One of the more fun and interesting panels I attended this time was called “The history of the modern zombie,” and dealt with why zombie movies and books are currently so popular.

    I’ve found that over four days at CC my mood changes–the frustration at the lines and the crowds fades a bit after you’ve had a lot of fun at an event. But there have been times when I thought that I would not go again the next year.
