Adobe Students #MakeThis with Marvel at SDCC 2015

San Diego Comic-Con. 130,000 fans of comic books, film, and TV all came together for one 4-day immersive experience. Fans of all shapes, sizes and colors, many in full costumes. And in the center of it all was Marvel Comics and its booth on the immense SDCC show floor.

This was the scene on Thursday, July 10, when the Marvel + Adobe Avengers comic was officially released. While SDCC attendees lined up to pick up their free copies, students Hayden Sherman, Alexandria Huntington and Chad Lewis signed their work for fans, and then got private portfolio reviews from top Marvel editor Tom Brevoort.
