The Unauthorized San Diego Comic-Con Survival Guideby Doug Kline from popculturegeek.com. This self published guide is a small pocket-sized book that sells for $7 plus shipping and includes info on surviving the ordeal of a lifetime, or at least the month. But if you ask us, you don’t really need a book to figure out most of this stuff:
* When to get in line for that Hall H panel (or any other room’s panels)
* Parking – picking the best location for the lowest prices!
• DON’T BRING HELL CAR
* Best time to score sweetest swag
6:01, WEDNESDAY, RIGHT BY THE WARNER BROS BOOTH
* Knowing when and where to get the best deals from the hundreds of vendors in the exhibition hall
THERE ARE VENDORS?
* Creating a workable schedule (with backup plans) that helps you see as much as possible
GOOGLE CALENDAR WITH DROP AND DRAG.
* Finding the best eats in the city (without going broke)
* Get into the best exclusive after hours events
DATE GERARD BUTLER
* Taking care of yourself (manage stress, exhaustion, and potential late-onset agoraphobia)
JESUS, WHAT KIND OF AN EVENT IS THIS, ANYWAY?
* Asking interesting and fun Q&A panel questions (how not to kill a panel)
ASK GERARD BUTLER IF HE WILL DATE YOU. IF YOU HAVE A PULSE, HE PROBABLY WILL.
* Meeting your favorite stars without having to bribe hotel staff or convention security
A BRIBE IS MOST EFFECTIVE SINCE YOU’RE ALREADY A STALKER
* Scoring that elusive exclusive
YOU MEAN WI-FI, RIGHT?
Oh we kid, but this sounds like it could be useful. Maybe it will encourage people to eat, shower and not ask panel-killing questions. It is a little sad that the book doesn’t actually mention comics, but what were you expecting?
