You will never find a more wretched hive of nerd-dom and geekery than this yearly gathering of genre themed exhibitors and retailers, artists and authors and costumes and craziness.
Nerdvana is covering the big 2012 show from the San Diego Convention Center, starting on Preview Night July 11 through the last hour of closing day on July 15. It’s a tough job, but somebody's got to do it!
We’ll also be bringing back a bag of cool SDCC swag to giveaway at our NerdvanaCon celebration on Aug. 10. Read all our con-coverage over the course of the next week and look for clues that will lead you to a trove of treasures and trinkets that were only available at the SDCC. Stand by for contest details.
