You Don’t Need a Badge to Bask in the ComicCon Nerdness

Every year tickets to the most sought after comic book festival sell out in minutes.  But don’t despair if you weren’t able to nab yourself a Comic-Con badge, because there are tons of things to do downtown that don’t require a badge.  We’ve scoured the internet, stalked the twitter profiles and read the blogs to put together a list of some of the things you can do without a Comic-Con badge. This list is by no way a complete list, there are new events popping up all the time. If you have a Twitter account be sure to follow the #SDCC hashtag.
