Weird thought: has been a fixture in the industry & fandom for ages, but I can’t think of any ongoing comics *set* in San Diego.

There was the “Sub Diego” story in Aquaman, and there’s a case for Coast City, but that’s all I can think of.

Can anyone think of any other examples?

At the intersection of Throwback Thursday and Cosplay Appreciation Day: the last time my wife and I both wore costumes to the same convention. Yomiko Readman a.k.a. The Paper from the anime series Read or Die, and Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick.

Downtown San Diego’s nighttime skyline, seen from Harbor Island across the bay…

Downtown San Diego’s nighttime skyline, seen from Harbor Island across the bay to the west. You can see the light trails from a couple of boats. The yellowish sky is the reflection of street lights on low-lying clouds. I have a wider shot that shows how much darker the sky is away from the city.

This was taken during last year’s Comic-Con. I figured I’d post it this week because the first round of hotel rooms go on sale this Wednesday. These are non-refundable, outside of downtown, and in some cases specific packages with minimum stays, but if you already have tickets and want to avoid the “Hoteloween” rush when the rest of the rooms go on sale, it might be worth taking a look.

Either way, you might be interested in my collection of Tips for Comic-Con.
