SDCC 2018 (1)

SDCC! It’s not the name of a sexually transmitted virus that may have origins in the backstage area of a legendary Australian rock ‘n roll group, but rather the initials of the greatest annual event in pop culture history: The San Diego Comic Con. While Kervyn and I were unfortunately stuck at Darryn-Con (Live, from my Port Elizabeth garage! NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY PLEASE!), we did still manage to crack out a few articles during autograph sessions that saw nones of people rock up.

And what a weekend it was! Disney shot themselves in the foot when they fired a beloved director after being spurred on by a Nazi, the Arrowverse grew even wackier than ever and DC had trailers aplenty as they began to refocus their efforts not only on making movies, but making films that actually look good.

In case you missed it, here’s a handy round-up of all the content that was pumped out:

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
