TweetWe’re at the end of our SDCC coverage! And we’re ending with Megan Byrd’s final selection of photos taken around the site.

TweetBy Nicholas Eskey It’s that time again. Each and every year, almost as an unceremonious wrap up for San Diego Comic-Con International, the Comic-Con Talk Back is one of the last panels to run on Sunday. Its aim is to allow convention goers one and all to address any questions or concerns that had arisen […]
TweetBy Benjamin J. Villarreal While droves of comic book, movie, television, video game, and toy fans roam the San Diego Comic-Con floor booths and exhibit halls, university professors and students are upstairs tackling the big questions through their ongoing research.

TweetWell, once again, we are repainting the kitchen to hide the stains we couldn’t clean, the comics cellar is being refiled, the liquor bottles refilled, and the linens have been burnt, per EPA regulations. (And the capuchin monkeys have been bribed with money directly wired to their E*Trade account.) The Beatrix shall return shortly from […]
