I'm here in Macon blogging for your pleasure, but I'd rather be 3,000 miles away at Comic Con, the annual mega-event held annually in San Diego.
Comic Con is far more than comics, and has become a launching point where movies and TV shows often launch themselves when trying to promote something new, or where current shows keep themselves in the public eye.

Excited about the revival of "V?" Meet the cast at Comic Con.
In fact, Comic Con has grown so huge and so mainstream that long-time attendees feel like the organizers have "sold out" and that the convention has gotten away from its roots.
But the fact is, most mainstream media TV and movie critics are there right now to get advance buzz on the latest thing, both from the studios that create the fare and from the people who will consume it.
With BBC America this weekend, at least I and the other people not fortunate enough to go to Comic Con are getting a good dose of science fiction.
"Torchwood" (BBC America, 9 p.m.) wraps up its amazing five-part miniseries in what has been a terrific roller coaster of a ride. While some "Torchwood" fans (including star John Barrowman) have complained about the quantity of episodes for Season 3, no one can complain about the quality.
"Primeval" wraps up its season at a special time, 8 p.m. on Saturday. It's another series that breaks the convention, what with killing off its lead character midway through this season.
It's followed by the premiere of "Being Human," at 9 p.m. It almost sounds like the beginning of a joke -- a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost are housemates. But these characters are serious in trying to get away from the world of monsters and lead "normal" lives among humans.
On Sunday, it's the US premiere of the "Doctor Who" Easter special, "Planet of the Dead" (BBC America, 9 p.m.) This time, the Doctor (David Tennant) is on a London bus and transported across the universe to a dead world. His companion (Michelle Ryan) is a beautiful and feisty jewel thief. There are three more TV movies with Tennant in the lead before the role shifts to Matt Smith.
WEEKEND'S BEST BETS: ABC continues its burning off of episodes with a new "Surviving Suburbia" and "The Goode Family" beginning at 8 p.m.
On SyFy, there's a new "Eureka" at 9 p.m.
On Saturday, ABC airs a new "Dirty Sexy Money" at 10 p.m., one of three original episodes left in that series.
On Sunday, NBC delivers a new "Merlin" at 8 p.m., followed by Part 1 of the miniseries "The Storm," in which a tycoon (Treat Williams) builds a device to try to control the world's weather.
There's a new Miss Marple adventure on "Masterpiece: Mystery" (PBS, 9 p.m.)
On cable, Mary and Marshall try to protect a counterfeiter on "In Plain Sight" (USA, 10 p.m.)
On pay cable, HBO brings a new night of "True Blood" at 9 p.m., followed by "Hung" and "Entourage."
