    I went to the first 5 back when they where still in Oakland, then I missed a couple of years and when I did go back it was HORIBLE! They didn’t have crap there. There where almost no dealers, just one massive Marvel booth, an almost as big DC booth and an as big EGM booth. Tell me its better and I’ll think about it.

    Last year's was pretty awesome for me... I got nearly half of my GF collection from the JPNToys booth... And they had quite a lot of booths too... 'Course I'm not sure what you're looking for exactly, but from what I saw, they had a lot of stuff and a I had little money... :( 

    I'm not sure about the panels this year since I'm not familiar with this summer's blockbuster movies, but last year had Batman Begins, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Serenity, etc. And Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes... I'm looking forward to Kevin Smith again and Mike Mignola this year...

    It was really a lot of fun for a $15 day pass...
    I REEEAAALLLY want to go to SDCC... But can't really afford it this year... I'm trying to save up money to go to Japan for a week...

    But yeah, we should definitely meet up... I'll let everyone know when the days get closer... :thumb

    I just got another reminder in the mail today, and since my new class schedule came out, it looks like I'll be able to make all 3 days if I so choose. (Which is unlikely, unless every day has a kickass panel.) So I'll probably be getting tix soon.

    This'll have to sub for Comic-Con, since there's no way I can do that this year.

    Also, the picture of Frank Miller on the card is the funniest thing ever, if you know what he really looks like. (Basically, he's fat, graying, and bald, as shown on the Sin City extended edition DVD's.)

    I'll be there on the 11th. I'm going with 2 of my neighbors. One is going for some Troma guy that he wants to meet. I'll keep my eye out for you RW.

    Also, if you order now thru their website, you save $3 on a day pass.

    I was thinking of going on Sunday, but it depends on if I feel like making the 2 hour drive from Sac or not... haven't really decided.

    So I pre-ordered a 3-day pass, and checked the schedule. Pretty much the only talks I wanna see are on Sat. and Sun. (mostly Sat.), but I might do Fri. as well.

    Anyone want to meet up at some point?
