It’s time once again for our annual question about the biggest comic book convention in North America. In just a couple of week hundreds of thousands will flood into San Diego to celebrate comic books, movies, and pop culture (interestingly, the same thing we cover on this site).  With Nerdtacular behind us, we want to know if you will be attending the Big Con.

  1. I tried… but with their lottery system, the movie industry hype of the last few years and putting the comic book and media on one ticket… I’d don’t think I’ll ever go again until changes are made. Last time I was able to go was 2010.

  2. While part of me would like to go, it just sounds so huge that I probably wouldn’t enjoy the crush of people. Besides, I typically work at GenCon so I get a good dose of masses of humanity there. I’d probably prefer a smaller flavor of Comic-Con.

  3. Not going, But made it to Convergence (Convention in MN) last weekend and had a ton of fun there.

  4. on

    I just looked at the process on how to get tickets for SDCC. It is a convoluted system that a DC bureaucrat would love. No Thanks.

  5. No. I’d love to go, but considering I live in Illinois and can currently barely afford to rent a movie and buy a box of microwave popcorn, I don’t have the funds to go even if I had a ticket. I plan to get there eventually (hopefully before I’m dead, I don’t think taking my ashes will count), but so far it just hasn’t been possible.

  6. No, honestly for me a con is no fun without my friends (who likewise won’t be going), and a comiccon I should feel little crowding while going “Got it, got it, need it, got it…”

  7. It’s just so terribly terribly far away. And terribly terribly difficult to get tickets, and hotels, and what-not. It is on my Bucket List though.

  8. Scale Enlie on

    All the way from Australia? Nah HELLLLSSSSS NO.
    …. I’d sure like to though….

    …sad face…

  9. I have never really had an urge to go to San Diego since it became way more about TV and Movies. I understand why they did it but it’s just not something I am interested in. I go to Emerald City and Rose City Comic Cons when I have the weekend off and that works for me.

    Well, this is my second year going, all the way from Norway. Yes it’s a bit messy trying to get the badges. And yes there sure is a lot of hype around new shows and movies, but so what?. Since I mostly stayed out of Hall H and went to several of the smaller rooms I was spared the worst of it. Stan Lee popped up as a surprise guest at my first panel (Matell-panel in a tiny room), that blew my mind. The whole experience was amazing with the whole town buzzing with nerds and geeks of all colours and creeds. I’ve been to smaller cons, but this…. this is the Mother of all Cons!
