Today’s the big day. Open registration for San Diego Comic Con 2014. For all those waiting in line, hoping to get a badge today, here’s my recap of the best stuff from SDCC 2013.
Best Art I Bought
Got this lovely Doctor Who Print from Sara, along with an original piece – Amelie:
You might recognize this art Mike did for me at SDCC.
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.
You can see the rest at my SDCC Cosplay page.

Best Comics I Bought
Love and Capes TPB #1
Thomas Zahler is quite a nice guy, in addition to being a very talented writer and artist. I reviewed this TPB here.
Atomic Robo #1-6
Another great find from a terrific publisher – Red Five. Reviewed here.
Vision and Scarlet Witch (Vol 2) #1-12
And to wrap this all up, how can I resist?
Thanks, and good luck to all!
