The 2014 Comic Con Chronicles Post 2 Wednesday

                     Hey ya'll, it's getting hot! (Delores Fisher)

Tuesday was a relatively quiet sunny day with only a few hundred early bird Comic Con fans around the downtown Convention Center and on public transportation. Tuesday evening work crews busily constructed obstacles courses, sets, tents, and buildings during the night as the evening got really warm.

This morning, Wednesday,  it seemed as if conventioneers had increased to about 1,000 people. Volunteers looked tired already and the work crew setting up various exhibits and interactive special effects seemed sparse this year as they work into the night. And temperatures are set to soar in the next few days.

Local hotels have been joining in the festivities, so look up fans and see not only some of our city art but also artwork that embraces Comic Con.

Of course my perspective is one of a fan who did not anticipate tickets being sold out so quickly after last years events closed. Most people today were checking into hotels, signing into the event, checking with security and getting their passes.

Since I have RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), I wondered how the disabled community would be accommodated. For the disabled, good news . . . .During my early AM stroll, I spotted the events efforts to make all of its fans welcome. Comic Con embraces the community with access services ready to support specific needs.

What if you're like me and don't have a ticket? There is still quite a bit to do and see because the event takes place in multiple sites around San Diego. A few of my favorite sights
