The Vintage Tempest’s Top 5 Favourite News from SDCC 2019

By Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

Attendees go to San Diego Comic Con 2019 for many reasons. For some, it’s all about the networking potential to get their feet in the door of the comic book industry (plenty of panels exist to learn from the best). For the casual fan, there’s the crazy shopping experience or discovering new works they have not heard about.
