Covering San Diego Comic-Con is without a doubt one of the highlights of being a reviewer and fan of Supernatural. Imagine the excitement and energy of a Supernatural convention expanded and amplified until it takes over an entire quadrant of a major U.S. city. Everywhere you look, walk, eat, sleep - every train you take, every lobby you enter, every conversation you have, even the food you eat and the clothes you wear - celebrates the superheroes from movies, television shows and comics that you love. You are virtually transported to living in a world where everyone and everything surrounding you validates what you feel about one or more of the popular culture icons of your life. Cosplayers bring superheroes to life with surreal replication of costuming, mannerisms, make-up and poses. Massive screens and banners display larger than life images of action movies and television series.
Being a part of the Supernatural press room at San Diego Comic-Con is exhilarating, fun and nerve wracking all at the same time. For someone who's a fan of the show, it’s so exciting to sit at the same table as Jensen, Jared, Misha and now Alex. Besides the personal heart-thumping hour of talking in a small group setting with them, it’s also a unique opportunity to hear their personal insights into the characters we all love! All of the people who decide the direction of the show are also assembled in one room, just waiting to tease us with their advance knowledge of myth arcs and plots! The challenge is to ask the questions fans are all dying to ask, while being extremely careful to never put anyone on the spot in such a public forum. They are on a global stage with cameras rolling and recorders taping, so the reputation of the show and the future of the press’ access to this team are riding on everyone’s ability to balance the promotional messages the creative team is supposed to deliver, with the surprise details we might be able to eke out of the minds behind Supernatural!
