Hey Hall H Show listeners, Aaron Nabus here and it’s the week of San Diego Comic-Con 2020 or rather, Comic-Con@Home!
While this virtual version of the Comic-Con we know and love can never replace the real thing…I’m glad that Comic-Con International has decided to put on what hopes to be an awesome online event. Best of all, it’s FREE!
Of course I’m going to miss the afterparties…I mean networking, the in-person interviews, seeing friends that I only get to see once a year, the rush of being non-stop busy from 9am to 9pm (or later), four days in a row, losing eight pounds and walking over 40 miles trying to cover the event as both a fan and a content creator.
But with the virtual Comic-Con@Home, I won’t run into a major problem that I have at the actual event – having to decide what panels to go to (and missing a ton of good ones with a ton of regret).
I don’t have to worry about conflicting panels, sprinting from the Marriott to the Convention Center and back, all the while trying to juke left and right like Barry Sanders as I try to avoid other con attendees in an attempt to make a panel.
It being free, will also give the general public a taste of the high level of panels that CCI puts together.
For this episode, we welcome back our good friend, Jason Lethert from HeroJournalism. It’s been a while since Jason, my co-host, Alex Benedicto and myself have gotten together, so aside from a preview of Comic-Con@Home, mainly about the panels, we spend some time catching up and in the Thunder Round, you also find out about a popular 80’s movie that both Jason and I have never watched!
I guess what I’m saying that I’m giving you a heads up that this one clocks in at almost four hours!
So please enjoy and I hope you have a fun time at Comic-Con@Home. Fingers crossed for the glorious return of San Diego Comic-Con next year!
Aaron’s 5 Panels You Should Check Out:
Here are 5 panels that are diverse and are good examples of the breadth of panels that CCI puts together every year (and are typically what I enjoy):
Art and the Holocaust
Building a Geek Brand: Surviving a Pandemic
Afro-Futurism and Black Religion: Connecting Imaginations
Decoding the Kirby/Lee Dynamic
The Grind NEVER stops, not even during a quarantine
Check out all 82 panels that Aaron bookmarked here.
We hope you enjoyed this conversation with Jason Lethert!
