Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s05e38 (20th May 2018)
“…so fresh, so clean!”
Plenty of stuff to get into on this weeks episode as Leonard finds himself preparing for the following weekends MCM London Comic Con shenanigans, and Alyssa is preparing for her big move westward. But that doesn’t mean that we can skimp on the latest news from the world of San Diego Comic-Con as Leonard gives an overview and highlights of the completed Special Guests list, including any upcoming releases they can promote. We’ll also give a quick guide to Funko Fundays, the General Sale of which has been announced for this Tuesday 22nd.
We’re also joined by Steve Kirk, the creator and organiser of a brand new convention taking place in San Diego this June – InterGalactiCon – which aims to ‘connect fans to convention content unlike any con to date’: a bold boast. Steve has form on the convention circuit, creating activations and events for Playstation so he knows how to put on a party. It’s going to be interesting to see what he has in store, in a convention landscape – and indeed, city – that has such a strong history of cons already. How does he plan to stand out from the crowd? (Leonard does not recommend a basque and heels. They are NOT good for back support over an entire weekend. Trust him.)
This, and all of the latest news and updates in the world of San Diego Comic-Con and con culture – it should be a fun show, we hope you can join us live!
