San Diego Comic-Con Recap 2015 Redux (00:14:30)
Jason met Aaron and Leah in person for the first time at San Diego Comic-Con 2015. So, we decided to take another look at what went down at the panels, pressrooms and events they attended, and all the other things the they did by answering the following six questions:
- What was the best and worst panel or pressroom you attended each day? – We touched on the “Pilot” episode screenings of Blindspot, Lucifer, The Player and Supergirl.
- What was the best event you attended at night?
- Did you go through any of the stuff setup outside the convention center?
- What was the best/weirdest/strangest thing you saw/heard while roaming around? – Check out the video of the interview with the Scorpion leads that Leah mentioned.
- What was the best piece of swag you came back with?
- What are your best memories/stories/etc. of Comic-Con 2015?
