ComicCon Craziness is Coming!

Yes, next week is the annual Comic Con International in San Diego. Lots of stuff will be happening and I'll be attempting to point you to the neat stuff and will be trying to catch some of it myself (but there's only one of me to go around). In any case, stop by the Arizona SF Conventions table in the fan table area on the mezzanine (where the food services are halfway up the escalators).

For all the official schedules, there's the Comic Con web site, where you can check out the exhibitors, the programming, and the autographs. But that's just the beginning. There's also booth signings and parties and giveaways and who knows what else going on. Here's some handy reference links to try to make sense of all of it....
