Weekend Warriors: San Diego & Palm Springs

Last weekend with Clayton Blakley

For Memorial Day weekend I headed down to southern California to visit San Diego and Palm Springs. Between soaking in the sunshine and beautiful views from high-rise balconies, relaxing poolside and enjoying the delicious fare at local hot spots, I think it’s safe to say I had an amazing time.

The Capital Region is cashing in on the big business of comic conventions

Comic-themed conventions, or cons, have been around since the 1970s. Even the Capital Region has had its own Sac-Con since 1989. In those days, the events were small affairs attended by a hard-core smattering of lonely youth and middle-aged men speaking their own jargon-filled language. But in the past five years, something changed. Cons became cool.
