Comic-Con 2012!

posted by Nell Minow

It’s almost here!  The San Diego Comic-Con starts tomorrow night and continues through Sunday afternoon, with thousands of passionate fans and hundreds of events.  I always refer to it as the Iowa caucuses of popular culture because this is where the many of the most important and highest visibility movies, games, books, and television shows we will be seeing over the next couple of years make their debuts.  This year the stars and filmmakers behind such highly anticipated films as the last “Twilight” chapter, Tarantino’s “Django Unchained,” “Paranorman,” “Pacific Rim,” and “The Dark Knight Rises,” will be there to entice fans with delectable details.  Cast members from television shows like “Game of Thrones” and “The Big Bang Theory” will appear on panels to talk about their new seasons and share some behind-the-scenes stories.  The acclaimed literary star Margaret Atwood tweeted that she is on her way to Comic-Con.  And I will be there to see as much as I can and take lots of pictures of attendees in costume.  Even the pseudonymous author of Fifty Shades of Grey, E.L. James, will be there.  Stay tuned!
