WonderCon is well underway and I’ll be at synDCon today (and maybe tomorrow if it’s good). Expect some coverage of the show and my thoughts. It looks like I finally found my band of geeks here in DC, so it looks like some non-video game gaming will now be sucking up some of my time. That’s super as I need another hobby. We have some special sections including an April Fools round up as well as WonderCon news!
