5 Reasons Why The Comic-Con International Convention Kind Of Sucks

July 18, 2017

Being a "nerd" at heart, I was like a kid on Christmas when I received a message in my inbox saying that I had been approved for a press pass to the event a couple years back (which I had to apply for by mid-December in the previous year).

I picked up my pass as soon as I could the Wednesday before the official opening. I got my Superman costume, drove my car2go downtown and managed the crowd to finally penetrate the exclusive convention. After attending my first Comic Con, I have to share with you how disappointing it was.
