Can you guys believe that the Power Rangers have been around for 20 years? I watched the original series as a child (and even the original Japanese show when growing up in the Philippines!) and although I haven’t kept up with the newer versions, this series will always hold a special place in my heart. Most ladies of my generation grew up wishing they were the Pink Ranger, at least once — she wore pink jeans, for crying out loud.
During Comic-con, they unveiled a mural at the Gaslamp District on Island Avenue and 5th Street. The painting depicted all 19 different Red Rangers over the years plus the most popular ranger ever: the White Ranger from the original series!
The current cast of the show, Power Rangers Super Samurai, joined the party to pose for photos and say hello to the crowd of fans– both kids and adults!
This year, we managed to get inside the coveted Wired Cafe at the Omni Hotel during Comic-con again. Music, swag and free booze? It’s clearly a perfect oasis for lucky, VIP Comic-con attendees! iStockphoto invited us to talk to them about their latest project called the Collective Comics Project for Feast. The project officially debuted at the Wired Cafe. Everyone got to vote on the story for the project and they got “superhero underwear” in exchange for giving their input. Whoo! Free undies!
The voting consisted of which hero, villain, love interest, etc. would you want to see drawn by the various illustrators around the world picked specifically for this project. The answer choices ranged from kittens to vegan hipsters, which indicated the kind of sense of humor the team behind this project has. We talked to Sona who represented the project during the convention weekend and she was a blast to talk to.
If you haven’t already, you should listen to our latest podcast: Ep. 67 Comic-con is Now Drunk-con for the audio interview with Sona.
We interview Sona from iStockphoto about the Collective Comics Project at Comic-con and you can hear it on this episode. Then the Lady Geeks discuss the up and downs of San Diego Comic-con 2012 weekend, how much alcohol that was drunk and the lack of panels Gizzy B and the Space Pirate Queen attended because they were too busy drinking. Winning.

“Party. Dance. Drink. Get Away With Murder.”
That was the tagline for the event held at the Wired CafÃ© celebrating the upcoming “Dexter The Game 2″. I was lucky enough to attend this event during San Diego Comic Con and revel in all of the delicious Dexter themed delights.
The event specifically highlighted the involvement and work of fashion designer Marc EckoÂ with the upcoming game. One of the joys of attending this event was seeing an amazing mural of Dexter and Debra Morgan.
San Diego Comic-conÂ came and went, yet again… and there were a million things to see and do! This year, to promote The Batmobile Documentary, six Batmobiles were on display at Bayfront Park between the Hilton and Convention Center. From Adam West’s 60s Batmobile to Christian Bale’s Tumbler, fans were allowed to view and take photos of Â or with the cars.
The documentary aired on the CW on July 16th – check their website for videos and previews.
