SAN DIEGO – Swinging in over a backdrop that resembled the gritty cityscape of FOX’s new series Gotham, the dynamic duo of San Diego Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer and City Council President Todd Gloria joined Comic-Con Executive David Glanzer to kick off the world’s largest gathering of dedicated comics, movie and science-fiction fanatics at Comic-Con International in San Diego.
