This year, SCCLFF sponsored the Santa Clara City Library’s Comic Con! This was a hugely successful event, drawing over 11,000 people from all over Silicon Valley. It featured Dave Filoni, executive producer for Star Wars Rebels (and more!), Lego contests, artists from Pixar, lots of cosplay… it was amazing. Of course the 101st Legion showed […]
