SDCC 2015 Survival Guide, with The Simpsons!

We all know Bart, Lisa, and Homer all enjoy comic books. And, at Flim Springfield know you, the fans, do too. With that in mind, we believe it is our duty to get you ready for the Annual San Diego Comic-Con, with info about Simpsons-related happenings, as well as a dose of much needed prep on how to navigate the convention itself.
