To all those attending ComiCon this year, “Avva Good un'” as we say in Bristol. July 10th on a personal note is also my birthday, and its awesome to have a little extra that day to look forward to seeing even in the capacity of an internet spectator. I will certainly be watching the TMNT Panels.
Enjoy the event, the collectable clutter you can bring home, but most importantly the company of the people you mix with whether ‘fan’ or ‘famous’.
I’ll join you one day.
