27 JULY 2014
Comic-Con is almost over. Hopefully you got to buy and visit and experience all the things you wanted.
You might even have hit the point where you achieved your objectives and now have some time on your hands today. In which case, I want to make a case for exploring an area that isn't one of your interests. There is no better entry point in the world to get into gaming for the first time, or pick up a comic book, or try anime. Maybe you want to see if you like science fiction or find out about self-publishing. So many people have a "first time" story at Comic-Con that opens up a whole new avenue for them.
My point is, this is a giant, multi-dimensional resource vibrating
around you - take advantage of it. Boldly go where other nerds have gone
before. And on that note, I'll sign off with pictures of several of my
favorite Comic-Con explorers who were gracious enough to let me take
their pictures: space engineer Bobak Ferdowsi, comic book legends and
first-time Eisner winners Gilbert and Jaime Hernandez, and visionary
genius Grant Morrison.
