35 Big Stories From San Diego Comic-Con 2014

This isn't everything that went down at SDCC 2014, but it's the stuff that got us excited. This should help get you caught up.

Another San Diego Comic-Con has come and gone, leaving in its wake countless sleep-deprived and possibly hungover writers. It’s like a four (or five) day Nerd Year’s Eve celebration that spawns countless bits of news, large and small. For our part, these are the stories from the floor of the biggest convention of the year that caught our eye. In some cases, they caught everyone else’s eye, too. 

This list will grow and change shape somewhat over the next few days, as we all have some interviews and stories that we just haven’t had time to publish yet. This may seem disorganized at first, but really…well, it is. Just scroll on through and enjoy your very own tour through our favorite stories of SDCC 2014 weekend! Random order is deliberate, otherwise you’d just hit the big ones at the top. Or maybe we’re just tired.
