PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow, those sure sound like some cool things to line up for and be educated about if you are attending the SDCC. Sadly, we are not heading out there and its something that I’ve wanted to do for years but the logistics of such a trip are a bit much on my side of the fence since a lot is involved. Truth be told, I don’t generally get to many panels when I explore the NY Comic Con because the wait times are so long and its never a guarantee you will get into them. I tend to log into YouTube once its all over and watch the ones that interest me the most. Are you heading to the SDCC in the coming weeks? Chime in down below and let me know what you think of these panel reveals and if they are something that you want to attend. I’d love to hear from you about them. Until the next time, “Make Mine Marvel”…
