Can’t be at Comic-Con but want the news?
Comic-Con (aka San Diego Comic-Con or SDCC) officially starts today, although there was programming last night.
It was sold out before it started.
You’ll see some coverage in the mainstream news and entertainment programs, but I thought I’d clue you in to a couple of places to get a geekier viewpoint.
First, there’s one of my favorite Twitter feeds:
They always have great, often insider, movie news. They have a few people tweeting from the con. You might not think you can get a lot of news in 140 characters, but they do pictures as well, and they’ll link to more thorough coverage at the Cinematical site.
For those who prefer old media 😉 , G4TV is covering the con as well, sending their correspondents, and putting it live on TV for you.
You can see that on G4 (check your local cable listings for channel), and I think it will start at 3:00 PM on Saturday (although other shows on that channel will probably cover it as well).
The official Comic-Con site has Twitter, a YouTube channel and more:
I posted some highlights of scheduling for each day in my The Week Ahead post for this week.
I also just want to take a moment to suggest you don’t ignore your local cons. They may not have the big breaking news that will come out of SDCC, but they are often put on by small groups…and that can be fun, too. 🙂
