Aka – “The Better Late Than Never” Recap
Every year, after San Diego Comic-Con comes to a close, three things happen.
One, I get sad… really, really sad. Two, I immediately start making plans for next year. Three, I crack my knuckles and sit down to write about Nerd Prom.
Only this year I waited on number three. In fact I waited almost two months!
It’s not that I didn’t want to write about SDCC 2016, it’s that I wasn’t sure what to write.
Every year seems to fall into a theme for me:
But as I sat down at my keyboard, the week after returning home, I was having a hard time putting my finger on the common theme.
There were parts of it that definitely felt like the Year of Community II: The Wrath of Khan, but if I looked at it from a different perspective it was also very inspirational (and conversely full of setbacks and disappointments as well… but we aren’t talking about that today) and a bunch of other adjectives as well.
But nothing struck me as an overwhelming theme.
I guess, before I reveal what I finally figured out was the underlying theme of 2016 was, I need to stress that I had an absolute blast.
Once again it was 5 days of sheer nerd bliss!
