Gearing up for Comic-Con 2010

Right now the city of San Diego is getting ready for hundreds of thousands of people to enter the city with one thing on their mind.  To get their geek on!  That's right kiddies, Comic-Con 2010 is only a few weeks away and the POP Patrol is gearing up for it.  We will be there all week to bring you the latest news and updates each day.  (Except Sunday, because by then we're wiped out and looking for deals on stuff for us.)

To be sure and get the latest news before we post it here, follow us on Twitter.  It's there that we will be posting breaking news and photos throughout the day from the convention floor and as many panels as we can cover.  At the end of the day we'll have video and a new podcast up as well.  That's not it.  Nope.  If you are going to Comic-Con you will definitely want to be following us on Twitter.  Throughout the weekend we will tweet out a location for tweetups where you can win some prizes.  What kind of prizes?  DVD's, iTunes cards, collectibles AND be the first to get First Edition POP Wear.  (I know!) So if you're not on Twitter, right now is a good time to join.  We'll also be tweeting where the POP Patrol will be hanging on certain nights for some tweetup fun.

But who wants to wait until Comic-Con to win some prizes?  Not me buddy!  Sooooo how's this kiddies and tweeps, let's give out the first POPped Prizes -

RULES:
Leave a comment below or Retweet the link to this post and you will be added to a drawing for the first POParitaville Gift Bag. (POPped Wear, POPped SWAG, secret Blu-Ray and DVD's) You're name will be put into a drawing and announced here on Monday, July 12th at 8:00AM PST.  (If you're Retweeting use the hash #poparitavilleCC)  You're name will be entered for each RT and comment.  All comments and RT's must be made by 12:00AM PST, Sunday, July 11, 2010.  We'll send it to you in time for Comic-Con, or have it delivered to your hotel in San Diego for your arrival.  Don't worry if you're not going to CC, you are still eligible to win.

This promises to be one of the biggest Con's to date and we are incredibly excited to cover it for you.

What say you?  Are you going to Comic-Con?  Is there anything in particular you're hoping to see?  Let us know some of your favorite past Comic-Con moments.
