If you’re coming to Comic-Con and you want to find me, Come through door B1/B2, head straight back through the rows of comic-book collector booths into the 1300 aisle, and look for the color orange on your right.

Theater Hopper by Tom Brazelton is a webcomic sort of, but not entirely about Tom, his wife Cami and their friends.

Some awesome panels this year include:

I love the AV Club game reviews, as they tend to tackle esoteric games that most places just gloss over (if they recognize them at all).
