We're all going to be waiting in line for one reason or another. Maybe it's a panel. Maybe it's a signing. Maybe it's a long line for exclusives. There are a few things that can make your life, and the lives of those around you, a little easier.
1. If You're Solo
Yes, some people come to Comic-Con solo. If you're one of them and you're worried about waiting in line, don't. You'll have no problem starting a conversation around you. If you're worried about someone saving your spot while you run to the restroom, relax. 99% of the people around you will have no issues watching your spot for you. Just be sure to say something before running off.
2. Holding A Spot
We're not talking about a spot for 10 other people. If you're holding a spot for another friend, maybe they had to get their badge first, be sure to mention that to the people around you. There's nothing more annoying then thinking you're only 10 from the front to then have a ton of people end up in front of you because of "spot saving."
Some of these lines are going to be a long wait. Be sure to have something to help kill the time. It can be anything. Kindle. iPad. Books. Comics. Games. Just be sure to have something other wise your wait is going to feel 100x worse.
4. Ballroom 20 Line:
This is going to sound silly but trust me, I have first hand expeirence with this one. If you're one of the lucky people who gets to wait inside for Ballroom 20, be sure to have a hoodie/blanket/towel. Why? Because it can get cold! The air vents are along the windows where they have everyone line up. My first year I was lucky to have a towel that I used to cover the vent. Everyone around me was thrilled.
5. Hall H Line:
I honestly can't put everything you need to know into a cute little paragraph when it comes to Hall H. It's a beast. It's a monster. It'll destroy your soul.
In the end, it's all about being prepared and having respect for those around you. Everyone is there for the same reasons. We all love something enough that we're willing to waste hours waiting for it.
