SDCC 2011: All Good Things Must Come To An End … With A Giveaway!

I can’t believe it, but this is officially it; my coverage of San Diego Comic Con 2011 has come to a close. For five incredibly long days, the experience went by in a flash. The action was non-stop from the moment I touched down in San Diego and while it was extremely exhausting and probably one of the most trying working experiences I’ve ever gone through, it was beyond worth it.

So, what’d you think? Did you like my coverage choices? Were the formats I chose to report in effective? Do let me know because I’m thrilled to say, it looks as though I’ll be returning to Comic Con next year!

I do know I learned quite a few things for myself while out west. First off, I need to pack more food than a box of granola bars, or at least make time to pick up some items at a local supermarket. Between running around collecting coverage and then writing it up, there’s little to no time to grab a bite. Second, if I want to cover a panel, I’ve either got to get on line at about 5am or hunt down a press pass. I arrived for The Walking Dead panel over three hours early and the line to get into Ballroom 20 was already about 10,000 people long!

SDCC 2011: Friday Wrap Up And Photos

That’s that for Friday at San Diego Comic Con and I’m back at home base, well, the hotel. Today was a particularly busy one as I got a taste of exactly how long those lines for Hall H and Ballroom 20 can get. I thought I was jumping the gun by showing up three hours early for the 11:15am panel for The Walking Dead, but apparently about 10,000 people had the exact same idea, as the line stretched from the convention hall all the way down to the bay. Lucky for me, I was able to work some press related magic and get a seat, but for those other 10,000 people, they supposedly didn’t have a shot of getting in for another three panels.

Anyway, not only did I catch all of The Walking Dead, but a bit of the Torchwood: Miracle Day panel, too. Sure, I don’t watch Torchwood and had little to no clue of what the cast was talking about, but everyone seemed to be having a blast, especially the show’s stars, John Barrowman and Eve Myles. After that one wrapped Frank Darabont and the gang took the stage on behalf of The Walking Dead. The panel was packed with interesting information, but the highlight was definitely getting to see the season two trailer not once, but two times.

SDCC 2011: Torchwood Panel LIVE

And we’re back in Ballroom 20, a little late, but with more than enough time to catch some of the goods from the Torchwood: Miracle Day panel. The event is already underway and from where I’m sitting, I can see John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Alexa Havins, Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and producer Jane Trante.

Apologies in advance for any poor name-spelling as I’m not particularly familiar with the show.

10:20 – Will we find out where Captain Jack went after Children of Earth? Barrowman says no, but perhaps it could be something to explore in another series. “Make up what you want. I just thought Jack had a great time with Alanzo.”

10:24 – Barrowman says “Jack is going to have another involvement” and hints at something coming in episode seven. “You learn a lot about Jack and Gwen in that episode.”
