A Comics Convention Guide from Mark Evanier

Much has been made of how big the convention has become, but if you study the program guide and plan ahead, you can make the most of your convention experience. This piece by comics and animation person Mark Evanier is a few years old now, but it might be helpful:

The essay goes into a lot more detail, but to sum up:

1. Bring Money.

2. Bring a List.

3. Bring Other Stuff.

4. Wear Comfy Shoes.

5. Shower.

6. Eat Food.

7. Meet People.

8. Consult Your Program Guide.

9. Get A Locker or Use the Mail.

10. Pace Yourself.

Make peace with the fact that you can't see everything.

Especially when you want to see three panels that turn out to all be happening at once.
