We covered a lot of stuff in this episode. Some of it briefly, some of it more in depth. So let's dive in!
John, through luck and amazing friends, has been to every Salt Lake City Comic Con and FanX since the first one in 2013. It's nine different events that he's been able to attend, and he's enjoyed himself every time. I have only been to one, unfortunately, but hey, there's always next year! To see some of the stuff that happened this year at SLCC17, just follow the link. It's an amazingly big convention, especially for such a small state, and it outranks a lot of similar conventions in a lot bigger areas.
Of course one of the big things about SLCC17 for John was getting to pick up some more MonsterHedz art from our friend Ronnie Hansen. I've known Ronnie for years and I can tell you that he's one hell of a nice guy and he puts a tremendous amount of passion and work into everything he does. Check out his website, and for up to date info, the Facebook Page here.

Next China Mieville: All things aside (if you know anything about him) China Mieville's worlds - specifically New Crobuzon - are amazing. I'm not going to go into any great depth here. I have a feeling that we will soon be putting Perdido Street Station on the calendar and dedicate a full episode to it. Here's an article from the AV Club as sort of a Mieville primer if you will.
Finally, very briefly. 'Allo 'Allo is on Netflix, go watch it. John has, and I will be very soon.
Magic the Gathering's next set, well here's their website go check it out.
Here's some updates to the Disney/Netflix goings on.
And, if you're in Utah, come out to the Bluebell Corn Maze and visit the Creep Farm. It's fun, and you'll get to meet me!
