Enter the Fray (Vol. 2): Comic-Con
Unless you’ve been avoiding your computer and television (or just don’t care about comic books), you know that Comic-Con took place this past weekend in San Diego. The costumes, the LARP-ing, the sneak peaks. And PopWatch was there to cover it all.
In case you missed a post or two during our Thursday-Saturday geekstravaganza, we’ve condensed all our Comic-Con coverage into a delicious bite-size snack, after the jump. Enjoy!
