5 Things We Learned at Phoenix Comicon 2013

If some of your geek friends have been a bit sluggish or down in the dumps the past couple days, it's only to be expected since they're probably suffering from a bout of post-Phoenix Comicon funk or still recovering from the event this past weekend. They'll probably recover from the affliction in short order, however, while going through all the photos they took or recalling all the things they saw, people they encountered, and sharing the experiences enjoyed during those four action-packed days. Maybe even a life lesson or two.

They ain't the only ones who discovered something about themselves or others during Comicon, as we also gained some insights while attending. And we're happy to share what we learned with you.
