In accordance to the FTC Guidelines and the WOMMA Code of Ethics, I am disclosing that I did not receive any incentive for posting about this event. I am simply a HUGE fan of Joss Whedon's many, many excellent productions (most of which ended much, much to soon) and an all-around comic geek girl. If they wanted to ply me with Avengers swag, I'd be totally into it but all opinions are, as usual, strictly my own.
