Hey everyone, I know I haven’t posted anything in over a week now, but I have had good reason for that! As you may know from some of my previous posts, I was at San Diego Comic Con (for the first time) last week, and it was one of the most amazing things I have ever done in my life.
There was not a lot of sleep or real meals and there were really long lines all of the time, but the experience was incredible. I got to meet some of my favorite celebrities, see some hysterical panels, and I got a ton of swag from the Con. Over the next few days I will be posting about my experiences at SDCC, going through each day one at a time.
And don’t worry, I will be reviewing more Uncanny X-Men asap!
As I mentioned in a post yesterday, I am going to San Diego Comic Con this week! Unfortunately I probably won’t be posting many (or any) reviews this week, but I think SDCC is a good excuse to not post for a little while. And I promise I will be back to doing X-Men reviews semi-daily again next week!
Since I’m super excited for SDCC, I thought I’d share my potential schedule with you guys.
I am heading over to San Diego Comic Con next week so I made a whole bunch of sneak previews for Red Smile that I will be giving out for free at the convention!
Red Smile is my original horror comic series that will be coming out this year! If you haven’t already you should check out and like the Red Smile Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Red-Smile/671952826207607?ref_type=bookmark
