SDCC 2011 - DC's Blood In the Streets Thursday

SDCC 2011 - DC's Blood In the Streets Thursday

Last year some religious nuts went to comic con and people ironically protested their stupid protest. Something along the lines of comic con is a tool of the devil and every nerd is going straight to hell.

This year people are actually going to seriously protest DC for what they plan on doing to their entire comic franchise. In that switching them up. But even though DC Comics is getting some negative reaction, they're still going to be rolling into San Diego strong with a huge schedule of panels lined up. So if you're going to San Diego, you probably don't want to miss the DC Panels on Thursday..

How the fuck... I mean, that's going to be one tough crowd. Just imagine how bad that is going to be. It's non-stop DC panels from 11:30 to 4:15, and you know that's going to be a brutal crowd.

If people are going to be setting up protest against DC's biggest moves and shake up's in their comics outside, what do you think will be the reaction throughout these panels?

It's really going to be a tough crowd. I mean, you're not going to be able to get into that room between panels. Everyone will be attached to their seats to see how much nerd bitching will be happening in there.

Let's just say that there's going to be a lot of people who wish that they were a fly in the room for that whole blood bath.
