Mechs, demons, superheroes, video game legends & more

Last Friday is we posted our Nerds vs. the Hollywood Armageddon At San Diego Comic Con feature, where we discussed the balance between the hardcore fans and the Hollywood machine that has taken over the event.

Tim Maclean "Fragments & Phantoms" exhibit at Subtext Gallery

Subtext Gallery in San Diego is hosting artist Tim Maclean’s first solo show, Fragments & Phantoms, which opened July 14 during Comic Con.
