Comic-Con 2011: The Aftermath
[pullquote quote="Just a taste of everything will never leave you satiated, so you know inside that you'll come back for more."]As I circled the maze of one way streets that cluster at the base of San Diego’s Gaslamp District looking for my window out up Eleventh Avenue, I thought of a simple analogy to summarize the Comic-Con experience for anyone whose never been and wonders what all the fuss is about: a multi-day music festival.
You spend months winding yourself up into feverish excitement over the growing line-up of bands, get disappointed when some drop out, then rally around the replacements. Then when you finally get there you realise that everything is scheduled so close together that you have to spread your love accordingly, even if that means you only get a taste of each act. But that’s why it works: just a taste of everything will never leave you satiated, so you know inside that you’ll come back for more.
