FOLLOWING the latest news from the San Diego Comic-Con is now a normal part of life, it has emerged.
SDCC, for decades been a gathering-place for the shunned of humanity to meet and discuss their life-wasting hobbies, has somehow become an event on the wider world’s social radar.
Tom Logan of Braintree said: “The office manager rushed out excited about the new series of Doctor Who and I turned to Gaby next to me with a practised but genuine sneer.
“To my utter horror, she immediately started babbling about the Sherlock special that Stephen Moffat had revealed in an exclusive panel in Hall H.
“Dazed, I staggered out for breakfast to find the lads from the warehouse sharing Instagram feeds of the hottest cosplayers.
“Where will it all end? In 2025 will I be avidly following the news from Whitby Goth Weekend?
“The nerds have won.”
Comics fan Nathan Muir, attending SDCC, said: “There’s nothing like being here, queuing for six hours to get exclusive Action Comics Lego sets.
“I love the feeling of shared passion, however I would kill any of these people if they stood between me and the superhero merchandise I want.”
