Convention Connection: Geek Culture Conventions for Week 29 2019

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Our highlight convention in the Convention Connection for Week 29 2019 is—no surprise—Comic Con International: Sand Diego 2019. The event (affectionately referred to as “Nerd Christmas in July” in my home) runs from Thursday, July 18 through Sunday, July 21 in San Diego, California. With more programming and guests than we can try to fit into this post, there’s tons for attendees to see and do. Check out the SDCC website for more details.
