So, next week, from July 20th-24th, I’ll be attending San Diego Comic-con for the first time in over a decade. Here’s where to find me and when. I’ll be the jetlagged Welshman blinking in the sun like a neolithic man who’s just wandered into an amusement arcade:

NB – Laughs not guaranteed. (my words)

Then I go home, and sleep for a week.
