Topic: Comic Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3467 - Part 8 of a series on the 2011 Comic-Con International San Diego:
NOTE: Part 1 of this ongoing series about the 2011 Comic-Con, (Blog #3450), gave a 'general overview' of why the San Diego Comic Con / Comic Con International: San Diego is very important to me. Along with multiple links to previous years blog posts, photo albums dating back to 1973, etc, etc.
Part 2, (Blog #3458), pointed out shopping tips on what we are buying to bring to the Comic-Con. I haven't missed a year since the Comic-Con first moved to the San Diego Convention Center back in 1991. I first started attending as a comic book dealer back in 1972, at the El Cortez Hotel. But I still have to plan out what to bring each year, as five days on my feet means a lot of trekking around the convention center and surrounding environs! This con is expanding out every year it seems, with programs being held at two different adjacent hotels now, at opposite ends of the convention center!
Part 3, (Blog #3459), posted the links to what panels / programs I believe are the most important for those of you that are first timers to this comic convention. Plus they are the most 'representative' of what Comic-Con International is, without 'Hollywood' panels / programs being included, UNLESS they are truly comic book oriented.
Part 4, (Blog #3460) posted the links to where I normally would be spending a lot of time at while on the exhibit floor of this comic convention. Where's that?! Well... When I'm not attending panels / programs with or without my wife Tina, I'll be most likely at the 'Artists Alley' or 'Small Press Pavilion' sections of this convention center.
Part 5, (Blog #3461) posted a link to what is in store for those of you attending the 2011 Comic-Con and wondering about how to beat the online mess of trying to buy memberships for 2012! I don't want to 'repeat' myself here, so please look at the blog #3461 link for the 'news'!
Part 6, (Blog #3462) of this series... Well, Part 5 was about the future, so here I was taking a 'look' at the 'Past'! And not just a look via my thoughts or collections of memorablilia obtained at Comic-Cons in the past... But from the collection of the 'Founder' of the SDCC himself, Shelf Dorf!
Part 7, (Blog #3466) of this blog series was a brief history and a link to the online version of this week's San Diego Weekly Reader cover feature article on comics creators living in San Diego, and who will be attending the San Diego Comic Con International.
So Part 8, this blog... Is just to tell you that there won't be any more blogs the rest of this week, or this weekend, as I'm celebrating my Birthday the rest of the week at the Comic-Con!
That's because this is the last year I'm going to be able to do so, as the Comic-Con moves up a week in time for next year, the 2012 edition of the SDCCI.
In the meantime... Be sure to check out all of the photos that are being mobile Facebooked to my Facebook Fan Page, at this mobile uploads photo album.
I'll be sorting those out later when I get back, into their own special album(s), along with videos I intend on filming while at this con.
The videos will be linked at my Facebook Fan Page, but will be hosted at my brand new YouTube Channel, 'Hamersky On Comics'. Check it out! More videos to be added after Comic-Con!
However, I gotta go now... Don't want to miss an hour of this con... And Tina wants to get into Ballroom 20 with the thousands of others probably already in line for it!
