As we stare down the barrel of another comic con, there’s probably a lot of emotions folks might be feeling. Excitement, nerves, jealousy for friends who might be going. It’s a good time, a magical time for anyone, but for The Marvel Report, it’s particularly special. This is the first San Diego Comic Con that the Marvel Report has gone to as a group, as an official organization, and where ever we might go as the years progress, it’s sure to be a historic one. We at TMR are beyond proud of everything that we’ve accomplished, bringing you Marvel news from one of the best comic book companies out there.
As you’re looking to us for bringing you Marvel news stay tuned to these fine folks social media feeds. A lot of us are going and the majority of us are attending primarily Marvel Panels. Meet your 2016 San Diego Comic Con Team, and share this historic milestone with The Marvel Report. Don’t hesitate to approach us if we look approachable (but who’s got the time to socialize with so many amazing Marvel panels happening?)
Regardless, we look forward to seeing you, and if you’re not attending? Check us out on social media True Believers!
