I had a great time at Comic-Con yesterday. First I volunteered for voter registration for the San Diego County Democratic Party and La Mesa-Foothills Democratic Club. We got a lot of positive feedback. People came up and thanked me for what I was doing. Three people even asked me to pose for photo, which had me gobsmacked; I don’t go in costume, so I’m always the guy TAKING the photos.
We didn’t get a lot of voter reg, but that’s OK. It’s more about visibility, I think. Nobody ever wakes up in the morning and says, “Hey, I think I’ll go to Comic-Con and register to vote.
Following the volunteering session, I stopped in at the Field Irish Pub for lunch, and then walked around and saw what there was to be seen outside the convention center. As is often the case for me, I was unable to buy tickets this year, but that’s OK; the con spreads out over the entire Gaslamp.
Back this afternoon for a quick in-and-out to meet a friend and then that’s a wrap for me for Comic-Con 2018.
