PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’m sad to share the news that I will not be in attendance at the San Diego Comic Con and as a matter of fact I’ve never been to this one. I’m going to the New York Comic Con but that’s months away still. I will instead be living through you readers who might be attending via your social media posts. I won’t add much more to this already lengthy announcement but I do want to know what you all think about it, especially if you will be attending the convention. That’s all for now so I will see you next time and please keep safe out there.
