Comic Issues #180 – Gearing Up For SDCC Part 3

It’s finally here! San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is upon us, and Comic Issues will be there every day: roaming the sales floor, photographing cosplay, interviewing actors and artists and writers, and looking for that perfect print or figurine to buy for our own geek lairs.

Join Anthony, Elizabeth, and Leland from Movie-Issues in our third and final installment of Gearing Up For Comic-Con, as we ask the all important questions: did Han Solo’s busted ankle cost us a Star Wars panel; are we going to the Masquerade; which panels are we standing in line for; what’s up with Batgirl’s new costume; why is the internet talking about a ball pit; and can you or can you not kick people if they’re in your way? (No. You can’t. Leland, I’m talking to you. Behave.)
