Hannah asked:

What is the difference between Wondercon and Comic-con, besides size and availability of LOST panels?

I answered (from a non-expert POV) at length, ramblishly, in the comments. *Bonus! Now with fewer unfinished sentences!

  1. That’s what I call Service with a Smile! Thanks for the answer, and thanks for the heads-up too!

    Regarding the prevalence of Hollywood at Comic-Con, that had been my impression as well, and I wasn’t sure what the tie-in to comics was. Seems pretty tenuous at times.

  2. Yes, it makes many comics fans/pros quite cranky. I think it started with the obvious comics-related movies, and so many fans turned out to see the actors that movie studios and publicists began to pick up on the possibilities…Now it’s like movie/TV central, comics tie-in not guaranteed. People will wait in lines for hours to get into a panel. Nutty. Of course I tried pretty hard to get into the LOST panel myself that one year, so I’m no one to talk. 😉

    (I think I bailed after 40 minutes in line. It was clear I wasn’t going to get close.)
