20 FEBRUARY 2015
At this point, less than 24 hours from the badge sale, you probably know everything you want to achieve tomorrow and how you're planning to do that. So here's my final thought - even though most of us are hoping for a Preview Night badge, it's not the be all and end all of San Diego Comic-Con.
The lines for the other days aren't as bad as they used to be; Preview Night is pretty crowded, with lots of antagonistic rules about how and where you can wait to get exclusives. So when the inevitable announcement is made that Preview Night is sold out - Saturday is sold out - don't feel like your SDCC 2015 experience is utterly ruined. It's not. You won't even miss half the things you think you will.
I'll be live-blogging the sale like always tomorrow, but it looks like it's going to go pretty fast. It's probably going to be the kind of sale where you live or die and there's not a damned thing you can do about it. CCI posted what I think was an unintentionally humorous good luck message: "We know that many of you will enter the waiting room tomorrow and leave empty handed. We share your disappointment."
There will be a lot of rage tomorrow - there always is - and a lot of rejoicing too. All I can say is good luck.
Talk to you tomorrow.
