Well guys, San Diego Comic Con 2017 is in the books, having wrapped up Sunday of this week. I had a blast and even though I’m starting to feel diminishing returns with what feels like a lot of repetition in panels, guest, events, and even exclusive toys, it still was a great con. This was my first year getting into Hall H for both Friday and Saturday panels, so I saw TONS of stuff, including that sick Avengers: Infinity Wars trailer that is still on lock down (I think someone leaked it with a camera phone online, but I’m sure they’ve been slapped with a cease and desist already). Other panels I saw were first looks at D.C.’s Aquaman and Justice League, and Marvel’s Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok.
Well, I’m back on the grid and ready to drop some updates. But to be honest, the notion of writing a long-winded blog post to fill you all in on my San Diego Comic Con 2014 experience, update plans for the DCV, social media launches, and the state of my liver after the heavy boozing over the last two weeks seems exhausting. So I’m just going to let this one flow ‘stream of consciousness’ style and see where it takes us. I hope to be brief. I also hope I’m wearing briefs because I just pissed myself with boredom (that’s a thing, right?).
First off, SDCC 2014 was incredible albeit lacking in energy and pizzazz. This year felt… smaller. I don’t know quite how to describe it. Missing was the grand spectacle of previous year’s booths, which would blow your mind as you first walked on the exhibit floor. Also seemingly in smaller numbers were the cosplayers. I honestly don’t recall seeing even one single Power Girl. Seriously. How the fuck was there no Power Girl cosplay? That’s usually the go-to cosplay for chicks who want to show off their magnificent rack. And finally, the crowd itself just seemed to be lacking the enthusiasm and energy of years past. It was a very low-energy vibe I got this year…
