Re: Possible 2018 San Diego Comic Con Panel

With the more popular sigings they've always had people draw tickets and if the fan got a ticket marked a certain way they could get the autograph. Naturally, being SDCC, people would line up in the wee hours of the morning to try to just get in the line to draw the ticket (what can I say? SDCC can be hard work!) With the new system, it's an online lottery. So, same results, just more sleep (or at least a less agonizing choice about what line and when) and knowing ahead of time. The only real downside I see is that the lottery is held before the schedule comes out so if there's a conflict between the signing and a must-do panel...well, like I said, SDCC is hard work - and many choices. :-)

If all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." ~~Marcus Cole
