Last Wednesday morning, I left for San Diego Comic-Con. I was there until Sunday night and continued working on assignments through Monday morning. Here’s my reporting and photos, all of which appeared in L.A. Weekly.

Before I start the weekly recap, I want to thank Dianne Garcia for creating new art for the site. Dianne is an incredibly talented artist as well as a co-host of the super podcast Defective Geeks. She’s also one of my Comic-Con roommates, so you’ll probably be seeing her pop up on my Instagram feed next week.
I spent the bulk of last week at Anime Expo, which is a massive anime convention that happens annually in Los Angeles. I’ve been going since 2008 and have seen it grow immensely over the years. This year, they brought in 61,000 people.
