Whoa, what a weekend! It was difficult deciding which aspect of this year’s San Diego Comic Con to describe, but after a bit of self-deliberation and a good nap I decided I’ll start with gushing about The Vikings Experience.
For those of you who aren’t aware of this show I am about to blow your mind. There is a show called Vikings on the History Channel. It’s a dramatic and gritty portrayal of the viking culture that follows the journey of Ragnar Lothbrok, a man who starts off as a farmer and ascends to glory through exploration and conquest. Yes, there is lots of pillaging and everything one imagines when the word “vikings” comes to mind. In other words, it’s awesome.
The History Channel decided to promote the show by creating a Vikings area at San Diego Comic Con!
There were women dressed as shield maidens, lots of themed photo opportunities, and vikings boat races!
