The Heroine's Geeky Faves: July 2012 Comic-Con Edition

I can't believe that Comic-Con is already over. I've been going to cons for ten years now and even helped run one in Fargo. It felt like so long since we went to one, but it was worth the wait. Here are some of the highlights of our experience along with a few extras! And, before I forget, thanks to all the people that helped make the convention a fun experience!

My Highlights
The 10th Anniversary Panel of Firefly, as well as The Legend of Korra and Community 
I love the work of Joss Whedon, but there is a special place in my heart for Firefly.
