Prepping for a Comic-Con:

• Make sure you are, in fact, going to a Comic-Con and not a Commie-Con. You only get to make that mistake once.

• Be sure to bring your heavily fortified comic-book carrying cases.

• Pack plenty of starchy snacky things in all nooks and crannys and maybe in your backpack, too.

• Don't forget your duck.

• Be sure your camera has freshly charged batteries for snapping all those pictures you're going to take of scantily clad heroines who otherwise wouldn't look at you as soon as drop kick you in your polybagged treasures.

• Have a spare empty sack to toss all your giveaway swag in for easy disposal on your way out of the convention.

• Remember your three doctors: Dr. Scholl's, Dr. Pepper, Dr. Feelgood.

• You know that nice suit you have that makes you look good? Don't bring it.

• Don't forget your duck. Just. Don't.

• Not everyone is going to make it out alive. Accept it. When the poo hits the fan, just treat everyone like you're in a zombie movie and escape by any means necessary. And don't forget your duck.

• Be sure that you've brought along your limited edition 8x10 glossy of Sean Aston for him to sign. Be sure to ask him to say "po-tay-toes" and bug him about if and when Goonies 2 will finally get the green light.
