Once a haven where geeks and geekettes could freely debate whether Captain Kirk could kick Hans Solo’s tuchus, the annual San Diego Comic Con has in the past decade become the go-to arena for studios and stars to preview their big budget sci-fi projects. In fact this year’s show, which wrapped up Sunday, had enough star power to light up this galaxy as well as those far, far away.

    I’m still not convinced. It seems packed with fantasy/sci-fi obsessives.

    It’s still a geek fest. A much more expensive & commercialized geek fest than it used to be, but it’s the same at the core. Thanks for including the bit on “Red.” As a Warren Ellis fan, I’m really excited about this!

    Sylvester Stallone on a panel about The Expandables? I think you meant ‘Expendables!!’ Unless of course you’re talking about their waistlines!
