On my way to Comic Con San Diego!

Posted July 23, 2014 by Kathy in Comic Con, Events / 3 Comments

 

I’m on my way to Comic Con San Diego so I’ll be taking a break this week from the blog.  I’ll be Tweeting and posting on my Facebook page if you would like to see all the craziness happening at the convention. I plan to post a wrap up when I get back. 

The convention schedule has been already released and I am already stressing over all the great panels. I wish I can see all my favorite celebrities but they overlap each other.  But here is what I hope to see while I am at the convention:

Wednesday

This is preview night and I FINALLY got tickets for this.  On preview night you get first dibs on all the exclusive items for Comic Con.  I already have written down all the publisher’s booth numbers and plan to visit all the major studios to see what great swag I can grab.

Thursday

  • Manu Bennett autograph signing – actor from Spartacus (Crixus) and Arrow (Slade Wilson, Deathstroke).  I have a huge crush on him but I have his autograph already.  But I would still LOVE to see him again.
  • Fairy Tale Remix – author panel featuring Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles series), Katherine Harbour (Thorn Jack), John Peck (Charming series),Cornelia Funke (Mirrorworld series), Tony DiTerlizzi (The Search for WondLa), Ben Tripp (The Accidental Highwayman), and Danielle Page (Dorothy Must Die
  • End of Series…or Not? – author panel featuring authors Laini Taylor (Dreams of Gods & Monsters/Daughter of Smoke & Bone Trilogy),Lev Grossman (The Magician’s Land/The Magicians Trilogy), Leigh Bardugo (Ruin & Rising/The Grisha Trilogy), Jonathan Maberry (Fire & Ash/Rot & Ruit Series), Ben H. Winters (World of Trouble/The Last Policeman Trilogy), Lynn Flewelling (Shards of Time/ Nightrunner Series), and Kresley Cole (Dark Skye/Immortals After Dark Series).
  • Adventure Time Conquest – this is a fun (but tiring) scavenger hunt. But you get a cool medal when you are done!!  So hopefully I can do this (and survive lol).

Friday

We will be camping out for this day!!  Last year we went at 3 am and got seats way in the back of the room.  So this year we plan to go earlier.  Wish us luck that we get in because look at this line up:

  • The Walking Dead
  • Game of Thrones
  • Outlander – I won’t make it to the panel but I hope to win tickets for the autograph sessions. If not I’ll go to the booth just so I can see the cast!
  • Sleepy Hollow

Saturday

We’ll be camping out again because this day is why I am going to Comic Con – True Blood and The Vampire Diaries.  This is the last time True Blood will be at Comic Con so I have to see them!

Sunday

I get to catch up on some of my sleep since this day will primarily be a shopping day. But there is one panel I want to see:

  • What’s Hot in Young Adult Fiction! – featuring authors Kresley Cole (The Arcana Chronicles), Kami Garcia (The Legion Series), Tessa Gratton (United States of Asgard series), Tahereh Mafi (the Shatter Me series), Natalie Parker (Beware the Wild), C. J. Redwine (The Defiance series), Brendan Reichs (The Virals series),Margaret Stohl (The Icons series), and Scott Westerfeld (Afterworlds).

If you would like to see how the previous Comic Cons went visit my 2012 and 2013 posts.

Hope you all have a great week!!
