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!Continue reading
My first full day at San Diego Comic-con this year was action packed, as to be expected. We woke up early in the hopes of lining up for the Westworld experience only to find out that the line had been already cut off. Too crazy!
I also went to the DC Icons: Blockbuster YA Authors Meet Iconic DC Superheroes panel with Marie Lu, Leigh Bardugo and Matt de la Peña. The three writers had a great hour talking about their upcoming DC books, with Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer novel coming out first on August 29.

YALLFest started in 2011 in the East Coast, a festival that gathered authors and hosted panels, events and signings for Young Adult fans to enjoy. This year, YALLWest (the West Coast version) was born in Santa Monica, California. This casual festival was packed with awesome guests including our friend, Marie Lu (Legend, Young Elites), Leigh Bardugo (Shadow and Bone), Ransom Riggs (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Veronica Roth (Divergent) and many, many more!
Admittedly, I arrived at this event pretty late so I won’t be able to give you guys a detailed account of the entire panel. I jammed it from work to get to the Grove and the traffic was horrendous! Still, it was cool to see Marie with Leigh Bardugo (author of Shadow and Bone), Michael DiMartino (Avatar: The Last Airbender) and Seth Hoffman (The Walking Dead) all one one panel. Here are some of my shots from the panel where I stood in the back of the crowd and the autograph session afterwards.
