Haywood did a great job celebrating our Halloween theme. NY Comic Con had just run the week before.
Danny and George had both attended and filled us in on panels, inside tips and other Comic Con news.
Haywood featured cosplay costumes. Danny also brought some show-and-tell items he had acquired
there. A new Aquaman trailer was shown, awesome as ever. Highly anticipated by many. I'm not much for
3D, but I may make an exception for that! In all, great discussion. Conversation continued at the Land &
Sea Diner. Fun as always.
