As San Diego Comic-Con 2014 winds down, we all have a chance to look back (thanks to the stellar coverage by Stephen and Zach) at a pretty impressive year of panels, reveals and general mishegas, and some things that I’m pretty excited about.  (Evil Dead on TV? Locke & Key as a movie trilogy?  I’m intrigued…)  A few of my imaginary internet friends have been reporting to me from the convention floor, making me almost-but-kinda-not-at-the-same-time wish I was there, and reminding me of the whirlwind madness of my own last convention experience at Nerdtacular ’14.  There’s a real joy to spending time surrounded by those who share your passions, and the excitement of the con doesn’t wear off for a week or two in many cases, which leads us to today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is also reminded of the exhausting trek home from Nerdtacular 2014, reminding me that I’m not quite up to the physical and mental challenge of a massive show like SDCC, asking: What’s your favorite part of the Comic-Con / convention experience?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    In no particular order: Cute cosplay girls (and great costumes in general), exclusive items/comics/etc. and meeting other fans.

    Never been in Comic Con, but any convention I’ve been in its hanging out with likeminded friends and chance to hear some interesting guest in person, maybe buy a drink for them in the bar and share few thoughts over it.
