San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is over. By now, many of you are on planes or various highways or already home doing laundry and admiring your new stuff. Are you glad it's over? Sad? Or too tired to feel either way?
I'll publish a proper summary of news Monday or Tuesday. For now, let me know what you thought about this Comic-Con. I heard a lot of gripes about the lack of substance this year; let me know if you felt that way, if you shrugged it off and found other things to value, or if you thought it was always going to be spectacular - and then it was. Or maybe you anticipated something magical that didn't happen. There's always an element of surprise. And there are always new things to discover - so if you didn't find anything incredible this year, maybe you weren't looking hard enough.
Over the next few days, I'll publish my 2018 summary, a list of comic book news updates and of course, my collection of first-timer stories. (I only have 6 of those so far, so if you want to add yours to the mix, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Okay, I'm off to decompress with pad thai and Buzzfeed Unsolved. I hope you had fun this year. I hope you made new friends or hung out with old ones or found a new interest. I hope all your months of anticipation and your badge sale battles and hotel room tradings paid off in the end. That you remembered what you originally loved about San Diego Comic-Con. But mostly I hope to see you at Returning Registration a few months from now, so we can start the whole process over again.
