Welcome to The Morning Read.
It's Comic-Con week. Oooooooh. And I just learned a few hours ago that Comic-Con doesn't really end for some of us until Wednesday of next week. It's going to be seven solid days of ridiculously over-the-top geekery, and I'll be bringing you all of it as it happens.
Make sure you're subscribed to my Twitter feed if you want constant updates. Getting to the computer will happen at some very odd and specific times as I scramble away from the convention center just long enough to file a few quick reports. In the meantime, Twitter should give you a sense of how things are going, a shorthand. I'm @DrewAtHitfix, so I'm easy to find.
Sounds like quite a few of you are planning to be in San Diego. Still not sure what sort of meet-up we'll do, but I would hope you come to the "Ponyo" screening on Friday night. Toshi can't wait, and he seems excited since he learned that Miyazaki will be there. He's starting to ask "who made that?" after he sees something he likes, and he's very curious about what that means. Since I can't imagine many opportunities in the future for him to see a film with Hayao Miyazaki in attendance, I'm really pleased this came together, and I'm glad Disney's doing this with us.
Don't forget that I'm moderating three panels now on Sunday in Ballroom 20. One on "Paper Heart," one on "Mystery Team," and one on "Alien Trespass." Did you see that there's a new "Mystery Team" trailer out now? Just hit YouTube last night:
