Dogs Dress Up as Superheroes for Comic-Con Weekend

In a just universe, I would at this moment be seated in what these days passes for the more luxurious section of an airliner, en route to San Diego for Comic-Con International. I would also have a bulging pocketload of disposable cash, which by the end of the weekend would be consumed in purchases of graphic novels, t-shirts, a copy of the first issue of The Fantastic Four autographed by Jack Kirby, a whole boxload of indie tabletop RPG manuals, a life-size remote-control Dalek, and at least one ill-advised but memorable hookup with a couple of particularly charming cosplayers. This is not a just universe, however, which means that I’m sitting in the Berkeley hills, sipping my morning coffee in a semi-dressed state while I write up this piece.
