as did fans. So far, we haven't seen a lot of post-con hype,
and aside from the announcement that Judd Winick and Dustin

with an open space for attendees to congregate in front of
a 10x12 backdrop for photo opportunities with resident convict

MYSTERE, and a totally 'duded-up' SENTINEL FORCE COMMANDER.
Attendees were delightedly entertained.
