Graeme McMillan explains what its like to try and see the con in five hours.

Anyway, it was just after half past one in the afternoon, and I still had five hours or so to explore the San Diego Comic-Con for the first time in my life before catching a plane back to San Francisco and my visiting family. Five hours, I thought to myself, would be more than enough time to see the sights and say hello to everyone that I wanted to say hello to.

That sound you hear? That’s the laughter of everyone who’s ever been to San Diego, mocking my innocence and lack of time-planning.
