Sitting at home or work wishing you were at San Diego Comic-Con 2010? Yeah, we are too. That’s why we’re watching the Twitter updates for the official hashtag #SDCC and living vicariously through the attendees.
It’s definitely not like being there, but at least we get to see some funny pictures, read all the big announcements, and feel bad for those sitting in line for the next 10 hours just to get a glimpse at the latest from the new Tron movie. With tweets coming in fast and furious, it’s a bit hard to keep up, so we’ve decided to cull through them and pluck out some great highlights for you.
P.S. You can follow The Convention Fans Blog on Twitter at @conventionfans. We’ve retweeted all the big headlines as well as the funny stuff!
