Guest Editor Olivia Munn: How to hit on a pretty girl at Comic-Con

Olivia_munn_leia_l There will be a lot of them roaming around, both on the convention floor and in the local bars. Time to man up, kid, and set your phasers on amour.

    1. Offer her your extra convention pass.
    2. Say you have an “in” to an exclusive Dungeons and Dragons campaign.
    3. Ask her if she likes Marvel or DC.
    4. Show her a big armload of indie comics.
    5. “You are one of the few people here who can pull off that Black Cat costume.”
    6. Mistake her for someone in Iron Man 2.
    7. Identify which Battlestar Galactica tribe she’s from based solely on her accent
    8. “Remember the Next Generation episode with Mark Twain? Oh man, was that crazy or what?”

    Oh I <3 this advice. Thank you for acknowledging the dorkiness of the women who are going to be at Comic Con and encouraging guys to actually treat them as equals and not patronize them.

    I went to the San Diego Con every year between 1990 and 2000, during which time the number of attendees ballooned enormously. Even at the end of my run, however, female con-goers who weren’t there with a husband/boyfriend were rare. If that has changed, as you seem to suggest, perhaps there is hope for the survival of comics as a medium. That’s good news.

    I’m sorry. It took me about three minutes to read the article because I couldn’t stop staring at the gold bikini pic. :P

    This article is funny!!! I totally agree– the best thing to have a compaionship (hot girl) is to be yourself: in this article, your inner geek, and be PROUD of it!!! :)

    Never been to Comic Con, but I used to go to Dragon Con every year… As a hot chick, I heard some lame pick up lines. One dude was like, “You’re what the chick in Ghost World was supposed to look like.” Or “Hey, you should be in the Bettie Page look-alike contest.” Hilarious. So, I think that would be the main pick up line for nerds. Trying to compare a chick to someone slightly obscure. If the chick knows who they’re talking about, they are automatically “cool.” Cool to nerds, anyway.

    Geeks, do not lose hope! I’m a comic book reading dork who once dressed as Jane Cobb to Serenity premieres, yet my wife is a hottie.
    What is more, I’ve recently befriended (in real life) a woman who is pretty, very approachable, and who once worked for Marvel comics.
    In the last ten years, there’s been an explosion of attractive young women who are into comics and scifi. Maybe these women always existed, but they’re not closeted anymore.
    And yes, a lot of the females at a con are girlfriends or wives. But that’s no reason not to talk to pretty women. For every one of them says “I’m married” or “your Wolverine tshirt is stupid”, there’s bound to be one who’ll say “I think Logan is sexy”. Have some confidence, be yourself, and if you meet Olivia, tell her she needs to do a vignette on my badazz Vespa stereos on her very awesome show.

    This werks everytime: Excuse me, I don’t mean to be rude but I would like you to sit on my face.

    From what I’ve seen at CC, the hot females are the unpaid actresses that get hired to hand out swag and bags at the booths and can fry you with their eyeballs. Very few hot guests and fewer in costume.
    For hot girls, check out DRagoncon, the goth girls are truly hot and the outfits in general make this one tame.
