When Attending A Con, Make Sure You Know What Day It’s On…

The title kinda gives away the direction of this post, eh? As you may or may not know, I recently traveled to the UK to visit some family, friends and eat more food than I needed (weight was gained, but not as much as I expected). I picked up a few British comics, magazines, and …
