Bill Hader Thanks HuffPost Writer for Tribute Piece

Celebrities attending Comic-Con cycle through a ton of interviews. So much so that in some cases they’re not always sure who they’re talking to.

Geoff Boucher laments the loss of what Comic-Con once was: “Like some mutant cousin of the Sundance Film Festival, Comic-Con has outgrown its original mission and its limited geography.” Hell, they’re even letting FBLA into the place, so you know its lost its standards.
