Feels Like a Secret Look into ComicCon

I enjoyed Colby Elliot's storytelling skills and the opportunity to get a boots on the ground description of a visit to ComicCon. As a San Diego resident, I'm always curious of an outsiders perception of our city and the craziness that is ComicCon. This presentation felt like a well produced and extended podcast that is great for a quick listen that doesn't require all of your attention to follow. Although, I will warn you that the comic book nerd in you will stop about 5 minutes and go "wait a minute, what was that?" to the awesome panel references and nerd culture mentioned. You may just find yourself backing up the story to relisten to these tidbits throughout the story.

As an aside, I found it hilarious our author was afraid to speak with the female Cosplay characters throughout the convention. Too funny!

Surprising

I was pleasantly surprised. Although short it was informative. I've always wanted to go to a comic con. I was provided this book free of charge in return for an unbiased review.
