Local filmmaker and self-proclaimed “urban journalist” Alejandro Cabrera admits he didn’t know too much about superheroes and comic books, aside from recent mainstream franchises like Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy but was quickly intrigued when Alamo City Comic Con rolled into town for its second year in 2014. In his first feature-length documentary, Cabrera, a student at Northwest Vista College studying digital media and applied science, examined San Antonio’s comic book subculture and how ACCC’s fast rise in popularity has inspired many people to tap into their inner geek. In the doc, he profiles ACCC founder and CEO Apple de la Fuente and features a host of interviews, including one he conducted at last year’s convention with Marvel legend Stan Lee. “As I delved deeper into this project, it became apparent that something as nerdy as comic books and superheroes could unite people from all walks of life,” Cabrera, 26, told the San Antonio Current last week. “Fans, cosplayers, vendors, artists and everyone in the community have found a place to belong and cultivate new friendships.” Too busy washing your tights for the convention to make the screening? Fear not, young padawan. The doc will premiere on YouTube on September 6.

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
