These Black AF Comic-Con Moments Through The Years Have Blerds Everywhere Hype For 2019 San Diego Comic-Con

SDCC has become more diverse in recent years.

Published July 10th

Let’s face it, comic culture was white-washed for a LONG time before people discovered a whole, wide world of Blerds (Black Nerds) who indulge in everything from sci-fi to anime. These are the folks who were onto Black Panther before it was a mega-blockbuster hit.

Comic-Con International: San Diego, which is basically the Coachella of all comic-cons, has recognized the need for diversity and has reflected that in recent years. We’ve rounded up a few of the iconic Black moments that have hit SDCC ahead of this year’s festivities taking place July 18 to 21 to get you pumped.
