For some, Comic-Con is the holy grail of cons to attend, a rite of passage on the journey of nerd-dom. For others, it’s an annual tradition. One that must not be missed under any circumstances. For those that make it to Comic-Con, will have to endure the longest of lines and heartbreak formerly unbeknownst to them. Comic-Con is the place where you can gain your happiest memories and suffer your largest failures all in one. After attending my third official SDCC, I learned a few things that I’m willing to share to help you have the best time possible during your stay. So buckle up, and take notes as I give you five things I learned at San Diego Comic-Con.
