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?

Morbid wondering: food allergy death stats

An article on a recent incident where a college student died from peanut allergy got me thinking: most news stories about people dying from #anaphylaxis are about kids or teens. You rarely hear about a 40-year old or even 30-year-old dying from a #foodallergy. It happens (which is why I still carry an EpiPen everywhere), just not as often.

I couldn’t find any solid numbers, but wrote up some speculation in my blog: https://www.hyperborea.org/journal/2018/07/age-food-allergy-death/

It occurs to me that the impending start of #SDCC is probably another factor in why I started thinking about this, as it’s coming up on 5 years since my “adventure” leaving Comic Con in an ambulance due to a peanut-laced mocha from a nearby cafe. I could’ve been one of those rare cases in my late 30s.

Half-following the build up to SDCC. I haven’t been to Comic Con since 2014, though …

Half-following the build up to . I haven’t been to since 2014, though I’ve been to WonderCon & Long Beach every year. The first year I couldn’t get tickets I shrugged. It’s exhausting, and there are other cons. I didn’t even try this year or last. But now I find I’ve started to miss it.

Sounds cool, until you get trampled by someone trying to get free swag and suddenly realize, “We’re in The Bad Place!” #SDCC #TheGoodPlace

#SDCC is expected to have the biggest economic impact on San Diego of any event at the convention center this year. That’s a big change from the days when it was derided as “low-rent” via @SD_Comic_Con

Google Photos sent me reminders of July 18 & 20th, 2013, 2 of the 3 days I was at #SDCC. Missing: The day I spent the afternoon in the ER.

Admittedly I did take fewer pictures that day, but I was disappointed to not see the photo I took from the #SDCC floor (literally).

SDCC TBT! @casualcosplaykatie & Speed Force’s own @kelsonv as Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick & Yomiko Readman aka The Paper
