A nerd's-eye view of Comic-Con

A little thing called Comic-Con is happening this week in San Diego. Maybe you've heard of it? The annual pop-culture extravaganza is bringing something like 100,000 people to the San Diego Convention Center for a long weekend of comic books, movie trailers, celebrity sightings and super-serious costuming.


And CNN iReport will be right in the middle of it. We're rallying a small army of people inside the convention -- and outfitting some of them with limited-edition iReport Flip MinoHD video cameras! -- to help capture all the action.


Starting Thursday, you can follow along with all the festivities on iReport and on the Comic-Con special coverage page, where we'll be posting loads of video and photos as they're happening. It'll be almost like being there, except you won't have to dress up to enjoy it.


Of course, if you're there in San Diego, you should join us! All you need is a camera and a flair for adventure. We'll be posting the latest assignments and details on iReporter tweetups here on iReport or via Twitter at @cnnireportsdcc. Henry and Lila (and a few other awesome CNNers) will be on the ground in San Diego to rally the troops. If you're up for the adventure, do this:


1. Send a note to to let us know you're in


2. Meet us at the Cartoon Network Pizzeria on Market Street at 9:30 a.m. Thursday for the first of our daily tweetups. (Can't make it that first day? No worries. Follow @cnnireportsdcc on Twitter for updates on the next one.)


3. Bring your camera and snap photos and video of the coolest things you see. Post them online here, or e-mail a single file to


4. Tell your friends!


(BTW: that headline? Nerd's-eye view? It's written with love, from one nerd to an army of others.)

I will be there at the Anti-Westboro Baptist Church picket.

That Topeka group will be protesting "adulterer" Al Gore at the Manchester Hyatt at 12:15-1:00 on Thursday. Then from 1:15-2:00, they will be in front of the Comic-Con convention center agitating about "worship of false idols-comic books." I will have a report and photos for you tomorrow evening.
