The highest compliment I can pay the picture is that it makes me want to delve further into the research and discussion of comic books, to continue exploring where Mann's work ends.

Excessively kind look at the obsessive fans who descend on San Diego's popular Comic-Con convention.

Just as much for those not familiar with comics as it is for hardcore fan boys.
