Hello, there - and Welcome to 'An Englishman In San Diego'.
“This is an unofficial fan site and news resource for the San Diego Comic-Con, also covering news, updates, reviews and commentary for Con-related pop culture – all from an Englishman’s perspective.
The San Diego Comic-Con is a convention held each July in San Diego, California, hosting thousands of visitors each year to celebrate the new and exciting worlds of comic books, sequential art, movies, TV and pop culture.
I found that I was keeping track on SDCC news, as well as all the stuff that features at the Con and that interested me, and was posting it all over t’interwebs – this site will allow me to keep everything all in one place… and now, so can you. I’m hoping I can set the site up as a one-stop shop for all your Con-friendly goodies – we’d love to have you keep coming back.
“But there’s plenty of San Diego Comic-Con fan sites out there – what’s going to make this one any different?”, I hear you ask.
Each year, the boys and girls UK that go to San Diego each July very much typify the ‘International’ aspect of Comic-Con International – and our numbers are growing, not only as attendees but as special guests and people in the industry. ‘An Englishman In San Diego’ will be highlighting when a Brit does something interesting at Con, or in comics or movies or on TV. We’ll be giving useful, practical advice to Brits travelling to attend this amazing international event. And, most fun of all, we’ll also be showcasing all the shenanigans of Brits while they’re in San Diego.
If you’re not from the UK, you’re probably wondering what this site has to offer for you – and I say, you don’t have to be a Brit to visit ‘An Englishman In San Diego’, everybody’s welcome! There will be all the headlines and features you’re after, all served up with a healthy sense of English humour and sarcasm. All you’ll have to do is learn to tolerate the ‘favourite’s and ‘colour’s and other such correct spellings of the English language throughout and you’ll be just fine.
