It’s July. In AmoXcalli world, July = Comic-con. We go, we photograph, we write, but first we post all the press releases from all the amazing folk that will be there promoting comics, movies, music, games and most of all books.
Are ya ready for some press releases? We’ll be posting them daily, sometimes thrice or more daily depending on how we get them. Given the volume, we’re not going to clean them up, re-write or put our own spin on them. Nope, you get pure undiluted releases on all the happenings. There will be sizzle videos, SDCC exclusive release announcements and more.
Gird up your loins (not really) but definitely get out your reading glasses and let the releases begin!
