That is the question. And while I ponder attending the 40th annual San Diego Comic-Con, if you're in sunny SoCal, you should too. If you are an artist (or what Comic-Con calls a "creative professional"), it's free to register as a pro (and I think you just need writing, acting, producing, or artistic credits and a way to prove it once you've registered) and then you get in free, AND you get a guest pass.
Check it out.
Pro registration ends May 5th, so don't wait too long. It's free, and how often do you get to be in the same building as more than half the people responsible for making the world such a cool place?
I rest my case.
