Previewing Dallas Comic Con from A to Z

Dallas Comic Con, that annual ode to pop-culture nerdery, arrives at the Irving Convention Center this weekend. If it's anything like last year's, it will be glorious.

But for noobs and vets alike, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. So we've created a simple-to-follow-if-you-know-your-A-B-Cs glossary, to give you the rundown of the good, the bad and the ugly of Dallas Comic Con.
