If you're in this hobby and you're not ABT (Always Be Tubin')...you're gonna have a bad time.

Can someone quickly calculate how much it'd cost for a Midwesterner to go to SDCC just for two Mitchell portraits? Gotta make a quick spending justification :D

You're better off buying from an eBay flipper.

Or ask someone to PB for you and offer a $100-$150 tip.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Rolled posters tucked beneath armpits...

It only takes a few seconds for someone to take your stuff and walk-off with it. Hold your bags/tubes between your knees tucked under your arm or something while browsing booths/paying for merch etc. I believe it was last year that someone leaned tubes against a table (to his side) and after he paid he turned to grab his tube and it was GONE.

Heaven forbid there should be a fire. If so, make your way to a wall ASAP. You might not be able to see because of smoke - stay at the wall feel along until you get to an exit.

I couldn't help it. That may have been my favorite day on this thread. I will always thank you for that.
