A look ahead ...

A look ahead ...Darren Smith points to a photo of himself with comic book legend Stan Lee and other superhero fans at a past San Diego Comic-Con. The local man gave us an inside look at his new shop and his growing body of work in the fabrication arts. Watch next week’s edition for a feature! Pictured with him, from left, are his wife Emily and daughters Emma and Ruby. You can also see his work by searching “The Smith Collective” on Facebook and Etsy. — Photo by Rebecca Neipp
