As I mentioned in my newbie guide, one of the best ways to score your exclusive SDCC merchandise is to pre-order your merchandise and pick it up at the show. This way you’ll be able to avoid the lines, remove chance from the equation, and leave Comic-Con with all the stuff you swore you wouldn’t without. MattyCollector.com was the biggest … Read More
Zack Young here, Editor in Chief of SDCC Blog, telling you about some big changes for the site. Unfortunately I recently learned I’d be out of the country for the entire month of July and not only will I be missing the con, my work on the site will be over until next year. Don’t despair though, the future is bright! Jeremy … Read More
A handful more TV shows were recently confirmed for the con so I thought I’d run them down and give my thoughts.
FYI: Comic-Con just posted this on their official site: The deadline for refunded badges was June 20, 2011. We will announce via our website, Facebook, Twitter and RSS feed when those refunded badges will go on sale. This is a soft opening so the announcement will be made on the day registration opens with about one hour prior notice. At … Read More
Yup, rumors have been floating around for a while but the LA Times just made it official. Marvel will sit out Hall H this year. It sort of makes sense as Avengers might still be filming and even if it’s done, the footage will be in such rough shape that there won’t be much that can impress. After all, when … Read More

Well, just as the news of TV and movie panels is starting to heat up, so is confirmation of some of the games you’ll be able to get your hands on during the … Read More
Based off the moderately successful and well liked comic book of the same name, Locke & Key was one of the most anticipated shows of the coming fall for many con attendees. Unfortunately after good early buzz and even the president of Fox TV admitting it had a great pilot, the show wasn’t picked up and now only the first episode exists. Luckily for SDCC attendees, they’re likely to … Read More
Hi everyone, I just wanted to post a reminder on the front page that the Offsite Events list is still constantly growing. Make sure to check it out if you haven’t in a while as there’s a ton of cool stuff. Thanks for reading!
UPDATE: After scanning the list more carefully it also reveals TV will stick to Ballroom 20 as its largest room on Thursday through Saturday but will be taking over Hall H on Sunday (with at least Buffy Musical and Supernatural). Wow. WBTV just announced they’re bringing 16 shows to the con! After the big lack-of-movies freak out, it’s good to see that … Read More
