Last year my husband, Joseph – a major comic book
geek fan – bought us tickets for Comic Con. (He bought himself the 4-day pass and got me and our son, Norrin, passes for Sunday.) Now I like comic book movies and I’m a huge Star Wars fan. I did agree to name my son after a Marvel superhero and his middle name is Luke, as in Skywalker. And since meeting my husband, I have been to a few comic book conventions. But I was not at all prepared for the insanity of comic con.
We went and had such a good time that I agreed to go again. With one condition – we not go on Sunday. It was just too crowded for me.
So this year, we purchased Thursday tickets and I kept Norrin home from school. Yes, I let my kid skip school for Comic Con.
Here are my list of Pros and Cons of going with your kid and husband to Comic Con
Writing it all down, I guess the pros far out weigh the cons. But if I decide to go next year, I will take snacks with me (I spent $30 bucks on 3 bottles of water and 2 small frozen yogurts) and will not wait until the last minute to purchase tickets. For real. The date for Comic Con is already set for next year and tickets should be on sale in a couple of months, if you really want to go, buy them as soon as you can before it’s too late.
