Having never gone to one of these events, I didn't know what to expect. I've lived in San Diego now over 10 years and always wanted to go. Despite all the rage, I never went.

Until today. I was lucky to get a free pass for the weekend. Couple that with two free trolley tickets (back and forth), I did it.


Overall, wow! This is one spectacular event. Estimating 130,000 attendees. Being a newcomer and all to the event I don't have much to report. Hell, I didn't exactly know what to do. What I can report is that I am going again tomorrow (same free pass) and I will make it a point to go next year.

This year being my inaugural year to the Comic-Con I enjoyed people dressing up more that anything. Going forward I will have my camera ready to capture the standout fans and work to capture some celebs. I got some of them though. I also got a few celebs on photo too.

I realize now that I have been missing out on this event for a long long time. Also, you might be surprised at the cult following of Harold & Kumar. Security did a great job making sure a riot didn't break out. I was standing in a line that didn't make it to the actual line to see Harold, Kumar and NPH (that's what they call Doogie these days). People were angry. Angry. However enough Elite staff were there to keep the crowd moving. Keep an eye out for autographed orange prison jumpsuits on Ebay!

Anyhow, I had a great time and will be sure to attend next year.

Here are the pictures that I was quick enough to take. I love the one of Claire (from Heroes) and the apple.
