Saudia Arabia hosts it’s first ever Comic-Con! Even in this age of pop culture, many still consider Comic-Cons as a trivial pursuit. In this case, not only is it a celebration of the arts but a tool to remove gender barriers and propel a culture into the future. As we’ve seen here domestically, Comic Con is a non-threatening force for equality and self expression. It’s inspirational to see how it is even penetrating the hardest markets and giving global nerds a chance to be themselves. One big step for nerd-kind!
