The Physics Central team had another successful year at Comic-Con International in sunny San Diego, CA. We distributed thousands of our Spectra comic books, reaching an audience that may otherwise miss out on the fun and excitement of physics.
We've collected some of our favorite photos from our time in the booth and exploring the weirdness of the exhibit hall. Take a look!

Comic-Con wouldn't be complete without a final jump over the shipment home.
Science can be so amazing at times. I remember I dropped physics in school because my professor was not a very interesting sort when it came to lectures! But if we had had put more effort in his lectures I’m sure we would have learnt much more. The Comic-con event is a spectacular example. It not only spreads information and knowledge but also creates a lot of interest for young students.
