Lets be realistic here, there is no way to cover everything at the amazing and huge Comic-Con 2017. So I will do my best to bring you what I can but also let you know there is so much more with something for everyone.
Comic book alley in the main convention hall is always abuzz with the latest stories, amazing art with authors and artists always ready to talk about their work. To this day I have an original watercolor from “How to Train Your Dragon” that hangs on my wall. It is rich in color and a story in itself so please stop by and see what made Comic-Con what it is today.
Also in the main hall there are offerings from film, animation, television, cable and the fantastic set ups that are there for everyone to enjoy. Be careful around meet-and-greet time as fans just explode when their favorite actors and actresses sign their posters!
So let’s start off with where Thursday takes me and for more of what we manage to photograph, it will all be available at http://moviemaven.homestead.com. Here we go to Comic-Con 2017!

That’s what we have so far for Thursday and we will make sure to have Friday’s craziness ready for you as soon as possible. This year we are going to be outside as well because even though inside the convention center is amazing, outside is spectacular with so much to see it’s geek-overload!
Please visit www.comic-con.org for scheduling that will tell you everything you need to know and show you exactly where to go – and for me that’s important. It’s also a great way for the family to get together and form a game plan to divide and conqueror!
So if you happen to see us round and about please say hello, of course you know it’s like playing ‘Where’s Waldo?’ to do so but it is interesting to see how many people actually do. Thank you for that – it means the world to us!
Happy Comic-Con 2017!
