Long time attendees to New York Comic Con have had to tolerate renovations and construction the past few years. While the Javits Center has completed the renovation (scaled back from an actual expansion due to budget), the 7 train extension is 90% complete, meaning that attendees will either have to hoof it from Times Square […]
Over the weekend at the Long Beach Comic Con, Tamara Brooks found some officially licensed DC t-shirts that gave messages that were a bit outmoded, to say the least.
