Welcome to Day 1 of the San Diego Comicon, and the first installment of my annual report!

It's been 15 years since I began attending this con, and I must say, each year it just gets better. The sights, sounds, and (regrettably) smells of total pop culture immersion overload my senses daily, until the whole event becomes a sort of dream which no longer occupies any specific time or place. When you're this far into the game, SDCC is no longer a gathering you 'attend'; it's a gathering you hallucinate.
