Quick Thoughts Daily: 2009-07-20 – Reprints, Comic-Con, Artists and More

I decided to switch the Twitter digests from weekly to daily for the week of Comic-Con International. This is a bit cleaned up and reorganized.

Observations

  • This is going to be one of those many-blog-posts-a-day weeks, isn’t it? I may push some of my scheduled posts to after #sdcc #
  • Diamond says Flash: Rebirth #1 FOURTH PRINTING ships next week. #
  • Need to decide whether to keep going with Final Crisis Aftermath: Dance by Wednesday. Dropped Escape last week, not reading Ink or Run. #
  • Misread “Council of Spiders” (upcoming Red Robin arc) as “Council of Spoilers.” #

Comic-Con Trolley Tips

The trolley is a good way to get around Downtown San Diego. Here are some tips for making the most of it during Comic-Con International:

  • Trolley maps and schedules are on sdcommute.com and sdmts.com. Here’s a direct link to the trolley map.
  • You can get a 4-day pass online at sdcommute.com. They mail it, so it’s probably too late for this year, but next time…
  • There are 2 trolley stops near the convention center: Convention Center and Gaslamp Quarter.
  • Downtown trolleys run every 15 min/day, 30 min/evening, until around midnight (later on weekends)
  • Trolleys are crowded, especially on Fri and Sat, so plan for at least 30 min delay.
  • MTS has posted the special event trolley schedule for the con (via @SD_Comic_Con)

Check out my full list of Tips for Comic-Con. I’m also posting more on Twitter @SpeedForceOrg as I add them.

Daily Tips for Comic-Con

Comic-Con International BannerHeroesCon and WizardWorld Philadelphia start today. For fans who aren’t attending one of those two conventions, it’s time to start seriously thinking about Comic-Con International in July.

Every day between now and the start of the convention on July 22, I’ll be posting a new tip (or two) to my Twitter account @SpeedForceOrg. Some are specific to SDCC, some are specific to San Diego, and others are just good ideas for any con that you attend.

As they go out, I’ll save each one to a list of tips here on this site.
