Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s04e29 (5th March 2017) EDIT: TAKE TWO, Tuesday 7th March
YAY! THE COMIC-CON BEHEMOTH STIRS INTO LIFE!!
…we finally have official CCI confirmation about the upcoming badge sales – not only do we know the format that the sales will take place under but we have a date for the first of the two, the Returning Registration Badge Sale: next Saturday 11th March!
If it’s been a while since the last time you had to do this (ooh, about a year ago, coincidentally!) or if taking part in a sale is all brand new for you, we’ll be undertaking a refresher course in how purchasing a San Diego Comic-Con Badge actually happens, step by step, all the way down the line – from Waiting Room to grubby hands. Information is power, kids.
On top of that, we’ll also be taking a live report from Emerald City Comicon, with Alyssa Franks and friends beaming in from Seattle to give us an overview of this incredible event, currently in full swing this weekend. Looking forward to seeing what this amazing con has to offer.
Should be a fun and packed show – hope you can join us!
EDIT: After all the tech issues with the Hangout on Sunday, which we ultimately abandoned, we are going to give the show another try on TUESDAY 7th March 2017 at our usual times – 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT.
While we can’t promise that we’ll get everything working this time, we can only give it a shot! Alyssa Franks will be joining us briefly from her pre-vaykay preparations to give us a recap of Emerald City Comicon, and Leonard Sultana will be giving a prep rundown ahead of this weekends San Diego Comic-Con International Returning Registration Badge Sale (#RETREG2017).
All the links should be the same – if there any major changes, we’ll let you know. Either way, the video WILL be posted here for you to watch! Hope you can join us… again!
