San Diego Comic Con 2019 (the 50th anniversary) is once again upon us, and the crowds (limited to around 130,000 now) once again make this glorious, wildly over-the-top celebration of pop culture feel like a curious mix of “The Wizard Of Oz” and “Soylent Green.”
Cosplay is the soul of these conventions. I could very easily imagining attending a convention that was nothing but cosplay, and it’d be every bit as rewarding as if it were crammed full of exclusive panels and celebrities.
Coming Soon… Son of San Diego Comic Con Megapost, The Sequel!
There will be another Comic Con Megapost tomorrow (barring any loss of internet at my hotel) which will chronicle Days One and Two, including a tour of the Jean-Luc Picard “First Duty Starfleet Museum”, Marc Zicree’s “Space Command” series, Star Trek Deep Space Nine’s “What We Left Behind” event,40th anniversary panels for both “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” and “ALIEN”, as well as panels for the late great Stan Lee (part of the reason Comic Con exists) and the Harry Potter stage play, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” (not a big HP fan, but I attended…).
