SECOND QUEER NERD BLOG: SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2012!

He very kindly agreed to sign an action figure of Captain Jack, so that we could auction it to benefit Prism (thanks to Ted Abenheim and Scott Moore for making it happen).
Anyhoo, I went over to the…
QUEER NERD BLOG: FIRST PRISM COMICS REPORT FROM SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2012!

Inside the hall, it was lots of hydraulics and forklifts and sweaty nerdfolk setting up their booths. Here's a behind the scenes pic--very rare and CON…
