Hall H is a news and media blog covering the Comic Book and Pop Culture universe – providing exclusive interviews with artists, writers and other creatives as well as introspective commentary about comic books, movies, television, anime, manga, collectibles, poster art, conventions, San Diego Comic-Con and more!
Co-founded by Alex Benedicto, Aaron Nabus and Ed Santos in June 2014, its mission, as Artist Alley Evangelists, is to pay homage to the past while also looking forward to the future by being a promoter of emerging talent and non-mainstream works that deserve more attention.
All three founders love and support the growth our comic book culture has enjoyed in recent years. However, having attended numerous Comic-cons since they were young padawans in the 1990’s, they also all share a wistfulness of the days when Artist Alley had more of the spotlight.
The Hall H Show Podcast was created in 2016 to further showcase the talented artists, writers and other creatives we continue to meet at conventions and online. It is hosted by Aaron Nabus and Alex Benedicto.

Ted is a Graphic Artist for hire. He has graduated from San Diego State University 4 times (once legitimately and the other three were just so that he could sit next to his friends who graduated in separate ceremonies). Ted has gone to the SDCC for close to 23 consecutive years now – like if he had a kid the first year he went to the Con, as of this year that kid would be able to vote and rent a car. Whoa!
