Nathan Fillion is the consummate showman at Comic-Con. He’s a fan, first and foremost, just like all of us; he just happens to be lucky enough to sit on the other side of the table.

San Diego Comic-Con 2011: Sunday

San Diego Comic-Con 2011: Friday

Day two of Comic-Con had attendees a little on edge. First, the pre-registration had most freaked out about the line that snaked even farther down the marina than on Thursday, and they worried about their chances on attending in 2012. And the wait time throughout the day Thursday for Ballroom 20 was in jeopardy of being eclipsed by Friday’s maxed ... Read More »

That created a frenzy for everyone who wanted to get tickets this year, to make a mad dash to the online ticket registration ... Read More »
