Comic-Con Day 2: Steady as she goes

What a difference a day makes: Comic-Con was eerily quiet this morning, with Friday usually one of the fanboy fest’s busiest day.

There was hardly a line at all to get into Hall H, the room that hosts Hollywood’s studio panels and seats 6,000.

By 10 a.m. On Thursday, there were thousands of people waiting to get into the room that already was full.

Today, security was actually asking attendees if they would be interested in going inside. At 10:30 the hall was still more than half empty.

By 12:30 p.m., there still wasn’t a line to get into Hall H.

Both pics don’t have but want the kind of buzz that “Tron: Legacy,” has, however. The Disney pic and DreamWorks’ “Megamind” launched the panel sessions Thursday.

But the rest of the show was also quieter than Thursday, with the show’s exhibit floor far easier to navigate.

The TV panels showed more signs of life, though, with sessions packed for CBS’ “Hawaii Five-O,” “The Big Bang Theory” and AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”

Hall H should fill up throughout the day, however, especially by 4 p.m. when Sony presents its panel for “Green Hornet,” “The Other Guys”
and “Priest.”
