comic con, it ain't how it used to be.
Unfortunately after months of looking forward to and getting excited about the biggest event in San Diego, I have been let down. The organizers seem to have allocated less resources towards diverse and interesting guests and more towards pushing this years upcoming Hollywood movies or tweeny cable programs like True Blood. This year's Comic-con seems like more of a who's-who than what it used to be: the biggest annual gathering of like minded nerds. Instead of being annoyed at someone's argument over whether Star Trek or Star Wars is better, I have been running into more and more ridiculously loud sorority and fraternity prats taking up space and breathable oxygen. I don't know if I want to go again next year, and I have been here during the last 3 decades. At least there is a Star Trek panel next.
