San Diego Comic-Con
Since 2010, I’ve got San Diego Comic-Con for both national and local publications. Don’t let the light-heartedness nature fool you: this is the most grueling reporting I’ve ever done: five days and nights of non-stop racing from interviews to panels to interactive experiences, turning around write-ups and photos at a breakneck pace.
Rolling Stone: From 2014-2017, I covered San Diego Comic-Con for Rolling Stone with a singular mission: experience as many things as possible and write up only the best. Plus photos. 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 2018.
For SyFyWire/Blastr/Scifiwire (they change their name a lot): A few of my favorite pieces for SyFy Channel’s long-running newsite from Comic-Cons past.
The Santa Fe Reporter: In 2014, I was fortunate to be able to interview Rick Geary, the original artist behind the SDCC toucan logo, who has been at every con since the beginning.
San Diego CityBeat: From 2009 – 2012, I was a staff writer at the local alt weekly. I insisted on a themed issue each year, including often the news and editorial sections.
I also edited CityBeat‘s award-winning, zombie-themed “Walker’s Guide to Comic-Com,” although it doesn’t seem to be online anymore
Electronic Frontier Foundation: A few times, I wrote about San Diego Comic-Con for my dayjob at the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
After writing for a few years about TV and DVD releases for Film.com in the mid-2000s, I began contributing to the SyFy network’s beast of a blog, Blastr.com (although it was called SciFiWire.com when I started, and has since been renamed SyFyWire again). Mostly I wrote lists, and quick hits whenever I caught sci-fi intersecting with politics and current events.
Here are a few of my favorites, in order of number of items on each list:
15 Dangerous (and dumb) oil disasters in sci-fi (During the Deepwater Horizon spill)
