Lying In The Gutters – 16th July 2012 – That Was The San Diego Comic Con That Was

Look at that happy man. It’s almost as if he understands. That was taken at the beginning of San Diego, when a fresh faced Englishman had just landed, still wearing a rather irritating patriotic T-shirt, and bears no resemblance to the current, haggard shell of a man tapping away trying to kickstart his synapses into remembering what happened at Comic Con. Thankfully, you’ve done it for me, by looking at the statistics for the website for the week.

I’m currently staying in Los Angeles for a couple of post-con days (get in touch if you want to meet up), and giving me a half way house between San Diego Comic Con and home. Missing my family but loving my friends. And reflecting back on a Comic Con that seemed to last a month, it was so full of excellence.

So what exactly were you reading? And why?
