SDCC 2019: Scenes Around the Con Part 3
Amazon Video had one of the biggest activations at San Diego Comic-Con this year, promoting their shows such as The Expanse, The Boys and Carnival Row. Also– they were handing out free snacks like churros and pretzel bites. You know I enjoy a free snack during Comic-Con!
The line to get inside the actual park can take forever, and inside, the lines for each activations took about 3-4 hours long. Yikes. I dream of the day when SDCC wasn’t just Line Con. At least there wasn’t a line for the photo opp!
I checked out the Real World Reflected in Fantasy panel with authors Marie Lu (Legend trilogy), Tomi Adeyemi (Children of Blood and Bone), Margaret Owen (The Merciful Crow), Hafsah Faizal (We Hunt the Flame), and Mary Pearson (The Remnant Chronicles). The discussions centered around applying real life situations in their writing for fantasy and sci-fi books.
