Photo Recapping 2013 Comic-Con: Ender's Game

if you've read the book, you know that this is how the characters learn to push off and use the battle room!
As I mentioned in the Outside Comic-Con photo recap post, there is so much to do at Comic-Con that nobody could do it all if they wanted! It's hard to make the most of your time, but one way to maximize your trip is to try doing a few things on Wednesday before the Con actually starts. Many people go ahead and get their badges, to make one fewer line to wait in on Thursday. Others just wander about and watch exhibits and activities being constructed. Some are actually lucky enough to score a badge for Preview Night, so there are pilots to screen and a less-crowded Exhibit Hall to see. Well, there are also passes to be won to various off-site events before they officially open on Thursday. This year, I was able to secure some passes to the Ender's Game Experience, so after a trek to the Town & Country for our badges and then to Ralph's for supplies, we made our way to the huge movie tent that was erected for the weekend. It was a very fun time and I wish it lasted longer, but take a little tour of your own with some of the photos from inside the tent.

before you went in, though, you had to get an ID made.

A few more images of Ender's Game-related stuff can be seen on the Floor, but this was really the experience not to be missed! I cannot comment on how bad the lines got or what the process was to get a pass, but it was certainly a highlight of the Con for me, and I'm sure it was for Jonathan as well. Stay tuned, as we have a couple more rounds of photos still coming your way!
