Highlights from the 2017 SDCC

Comic-Con 2017
San Diego Comic-Con International 2017

Per Comic-Con, who would have thought, back in 1970 a group of comic, movie, and science fiction enthusiasts would come together to form a comic book convention? A small gathering in southern California called San Diego’s Golden State Comic-Minicon. The first event drew around 100 attendees who saw Forrest J Ackerman and Mike Royer as the con’s guest. The event raised enough funds and interest for the next convention to be larger. The second convention took place five months later and renamed San Diego’s Golden State Comic-Con. The event expanded to three days, this time over 300 people attended. Guests include were Ray Bradbury, Jack Kirby, and A. E. van Vogt. In 1972 the named changed again, San Diego’s West Coast Comic Convention. In 1973 the name changed to San Diego Comic-Con. In 1995, the name came to be Comic-Con International: San Diego (CCI). Today we call the event Comic-Con, with the hashtag being #SDCC.

By the time this article is published, 2017 Comic-Con would have come and gone. Technically, a three-day event, but if you add in the preview night, will you know. This year’s Comic-Con took place on July 20-23 with a preview night on July 19th. If you could not attend the event in person, the internet kept you updated on everything. From live streaming, pictures and trailer releases. I spent Comic-Con weekend keeping up and sharing the trailers and news on my Facebook author fan page. I would love to attend this event, someday. To go to a panel and hear about my favorite shows and see the stars. Dressing up in my favorite character’s outfits, walking around and going broke.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.
