Good morning, Dragon Con. While everything officially starts today, people began picking up their badges, crowding the elevators and mingling in the various hotels on Thursday.

I just want to say: I don’t know what they’ve done differently with the pre-registration line this year, but please keep doing it. I was in an out of there in under 15 minutes. That has never happened in seven years of going to this thing. It was a model of efficiency, like a factory cranking out happiness.

More, please.

Patrick Stewart’s panel is at 1 pm today, so I am definitely going to snag a seat for that. I also want to try and hit up some of the fiction writers panels today and one of the “Venture Brothers” panels.

Here are some of the photos I took last night. I’ll try to name the characters if I can. More to follow …
