Hangout: Conquest & San Diego Conquest

While we may have reached – and just about survived – the summer con season, and we enter the long dark nights of winter, we still have plenty to talk about on our weekly recap of the weeks convention news, as well as being joined by very special guests.

This week, Leonard and Alyssa will be examining the impact and future of the proposals put forward for a non-contiguous convention space expansion in San Diego, as both Measures C and D were dismissed at the beginning of the week. We’ll look into what this means for the future of the city.

We’re also joined by three guests who have entered the tough and challenging market for the nerd dollar; Mario Candelaria and Rob Alan with their new comics project – THE SAN DIEGO CONQUEST – that is very much relevant to the SDCC attendee, and also, Tony B. Kim, who is aiming to enrich and bedazzle the fashion sense of your sartorially aware geek with his prestige clothing line, HERO WITHIN. We’re excited to speak to these bold entrepreneurs.

Alyssa bought her first comic at age 7 & was hooked. She has collected comics most of her life. Recently she has branched out to comic art and books. She goes to as many con's as she can & enjoys the long form story telling of TV and dark chocolate and wine, can't forget wine, oh, but then there's dark beer. Let's just go all in & say she's a foodie, and can always be enticed with new & fun foods.
