Comic-Con is one of the best events of the year for true nerds (like me). It's not just a show - it's a place where news get broken about a myriad of TV series, sci-fi movies, book series and everything related to that specific culture. The 46th edition of Comic-Con starts on Thursday and we are all holding our collective breath to hear news from San Diego about Batman vs. Superman, Game of Thrones, X-Men: Apocalypse, The Walking Dead and, of course, the oh-so-waited-for Star Wars Episode VII.
There are a couple of ways you can prepare for the event, if you don't want any news to fly under your radar. Set-up your Comic-Con listening hub in Inoreader - it will take less than 3 minutes:
- Subscribe to the Comic-Con website feed: just hit the Subscribe button and you'll have the official news coming from Comic-Con right away.
- Add the Comic-Con Twitter account - just paste the account URL in the Search bar and all new tweets will come straight to your Inoreader. If you have any questions about subscribing to social feeds, read our full how-to.
- Add the Comic-Con Facebook page - seems like we launched the new Facebook page feature just in time. Get the page URL and paste it in the Search bar.
- Add YouTube channels - the official Comic-Con channel seems a bit stale and we're not sure if it will feature any videos from the event, but there are many channels that will post original content - my personal favorite being The Nerdist. The YouTube channels of production companies like Warner Bros. or HBO's Game of Thrones are a sure place for any exclusive footage that may be revealed at Comic-Con. And finally, IGN and other news companies will be your go-to place for interveiws, reactions and more. Just build your list of 4-5 trusted sources by adding the URL of the channel or user in the Search bar.
- Create an Active Search - if you want all the news, search for "comic-con" and create an active search. You'll be getting the information about Comic-Con as it is posted in one aggregated feed. Active Search can retrieve all related articles from your subscriptions or return results from all public feeds with Global Search (requires a Professional account, but you can also test it with a 1-month free trial)
