Another Fab Comic Con

Comic Con in San Diego this past July was its usual blast and a half. 

One of my favorite parts of Comic Con is Nerd HQ an offsite venue which is the brainchild of Zachary Levi. Besides providing a great spot to connect with other pop culture nerds, he hosts Conversations for a Cause. Proceeds from these celeb convos support the charity Operation Smile, an international medical charity that provides free surgeries for children in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate, or other facial deformities.

I was lucky enough this year to score tickets to a convo with the funny, talented, and completely genuine Zach Levi as well as one with Scott Bakula who played Zach's dad on the series Chuck. Both conversations were super uplifting and positive.

My "find" of this year was stumbling across the Entertainment Weekly offsite panels in a small park next to the marina. I hit the jackpot scoring front row seats to see the 
Agents of Shield


Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk talking about their hilarious web series CON MAN. 

By far the best part of Comic Con was cheering on friends, Stacey Lee and Elizabeth Briggs, exquisite YA authors, at their panel on diversity in YA lit. They were brilliant and insightful.

 The shopping on the convention floor is the 
essence of temptation. My favorite purchase of Comic Con 2016 was of course, Star Wars merch!

If you ever have the chance to journey to
