Coming at you EVERY Thursday this summer,  ANIMATED INSIGHTS BY SHANNON MUIR takes you inside Shannon’s latest reflections on her passion for animation as a medium, and other animated insights about life. To catch up on all posts, check out the Animated Insights portion of the website! This week, Shannon talks about gearing up to head out to Comic-Con International in San Diego next week. I’m so excited to get to be a part of history when I go to the 50th COMIC-CON in San Diego next week! I’ve been going for a little over twenty consecutive years, but I know this year will be big. My husband and I will arrive Thursday afternoon and are planning to try to catch programming on Thursday evening, as well as all day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We’re both having a hard time deciding, and think this perhaps is the largest and most diverse selection we’ve seen. My plan is to post a teaser next Thursday, letting you know what I hope to see and experience. The following two weeks will be a recap of my experiences over the days so you can find out what actually happened. After that, the column will return to reviews including KULIPARI: DREAM WALKERS and the new season of SHE-RA AND THE PRINCESSES OF POWER. Keep checking in every Thursday this summer!
