Best Panels

Tournament of Nerds: Live

The World’s End – The panel featured Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright talking about the movie for an hour. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Ode to Nerds – You can read more about it, but this was the biggest surprise to me at SDCC 2013. Charlie Jane Anders was a delightful moderator, and the panelists were intelligent and encouraging. I hope to see more panels hosted or featuring io9 staffers at SDCC 2014.

Best Cosplay

You can see the rest at my SDCC Cosplay page.

Best Parties

The Unofficial SDCC Blog’s #UndertheSDCC party


Geek and Sundry



You can read a full travelogue of all the parties and panels here.

And to wrap this all up, how can I resist?
