I guess we can almost file this in the “not news” category: We’ve asked it once, and we’ll ask it again – why does every single website associated with the San Diego Comic-Con seem to crash whenever a deadline approaches?

Although we LOVE the San Diego event more than….well, more than all the others…the guys at the Comic Con Guide suggest that maybe fans should simply consider picking a different Con to go to. Whether it’s Megacon, DragonCon, New York, Wizard, Salt Lake or Emerald City, there are lots to choose from. Read here >>
