    I am looking at doing SDCC in a wheelchair for the first time and I have been really nervous about it. Thank you for making me feel better about the prospect! Also, thank you sir for using your platform to tell people to just have FUN, and above all to be respectful to the people in the booths. You are wonderful. Have a great con!
