Gone Comic-Con-ing

Posting will be intermittent for the next few days, as your humble blogger is headed to… Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego.  I will be going in two capacities:  1)  An expert for the Zombie Research Society panel at 7:00 PM on Thursday; 2)  The World’s Most Awesome Dad for taking the official Twelve-Year Old Blog ...

Posting will be intermittent for the next few days, as your humble blogger is headed to… Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego.  I will be going in two capacities: 

1)  An expert for the Zombie Research Society panel at 7:00 PM on Thursday;

2)  The World’s Most Awesome Dad for taking the official Twelve-Year Old Blog Son to Comic-Con. 

Beyond that, Comic-Con mostly holds a sociological curiousity for me.  As a detached social scientist, I will be closely observing whether attendees have different kind of foreign policy worldviews that ordinary folk, and OMG, THERE’S A FIREFLY REUNION PANEL??!!  JOSS WHEDON WILL BE THERE?!  AHH!!!!!!  OMG!!  ZOMG!! 

[Deep breath]

So, anything IR-related that happens in San Diego, I’ll be FP‘s reporter on the scene for the next few days.  Otherwise, I’ll just be crossing off "Presenting at Comic-Con" off my bucket list. 

As a first-time attendee, tips from any veteran Comic-Con-goers will be greatly appreciated in the comments.
