Did the absence of Marvel, HBO and Star Wars effect the mood and numbers at San Diego International Comic-Con (SDCC) 2018? SDCC hit its peak in 2015 at 170,000 attendees, a number that has been slowly declining, much to the happiness of diehard fans who have seen the focus shift away from them and onto Hollywood fair-weather fans. In Episode 332 of The Harold & Maudecast, Sarah and Jake discuss the impact Marvel's absence had on the Con and its future and detail their experiences at this year's Comic-Con from Preview Night to ConanCon to fan favorite spotlights like Jim Lee and Ray Harryhausen, to Hall H to Future Tech Live and other Virtual Reality experiences and all the crazy escape rooms outside the convention center.
