PiercingMetal Thoughts: The more I read about the 2019 SDCC the sadder I get about not attending. I encourage our diehards to keep us in mind as they wander the floor and mention us as one of their preferred entertainment websites since the more the merrier after all. I don’t have much more to add about this subject and dare I close this post up with a rousing “Go, Go Godzilla!!!!” See you next time.
