Hangout 4/22: San Diego Comic Fest

We promised it – and here we are, back with a vengeance, after the technical hiccups of last week which meant we had to postpone our show. The good news is, Leonard is back is a stable location, even if Alyssa isn’t: she’ll be bringing us a live report from San Diego Comic Fest, along with some special drop-in guests along the way.

We’ll also be reporting on the recent developments of UniversalFanCon, a Kickstarter-funded show that has had to postpone its operation, one week from opening. Many people have felt abandoned and mislead, some felt that a major opportunity of a new type of comic convention has been squandered. We’ll look into the timeline of what has happened, and how some fans and exhibitors are coping and adapting to the news.

This, and all of the updates from the world of SDCC and con culture – it’s going to be a glorious return to some kind of form! Hope you can join us, live…

Alyssa bought her first comic at age 7 & was hooked. She has collected comics most of her life. Recently she has branched out to comic art and books and the occasional Lego. She goes to as many con's as she can & enjoys the 'long form' story telling of TV. She also enjoys new kinds of food- yes, she is a foodie.
