SDCC 2017: Scenes Around the Con, Part 4

Day 2 of San Diego Comic-Con was spent mostly wandering around the off-site events, including all the activations at the PETCO parking lot. I got to visit the Ice Cream Citadel where the Lich King (from Blizzard’s Hearthstone) presided over his shop as people lined up for free ice cream. Surprisingly, the Deadquarters—The Walking Dead experience— didn’t have a long line and I decided to check it out. It was a nice outdoor lounge, too much sun for me personally, but there was free Mountain Dew and a cool bunker experience!

SDCC 2017: Scenes Around the Con, Part 2

My first full day at San Diego Comic-con this year was action packed, as to be expected. We woke up early in the hopes of lining up for the Westworld experience only to find out that the line had been already cut off. Too crazy!

I also went to the DC Icons: Blockbuster YA Authors Meet Iconic DC Superheroes panel with Marie Lu, Leigh Bardugo and Matt de la Peña. The three writers had a great hour talking about their upcoming DC books, with Bardugo’s Wonder Woman: Warbringer novel coming out first on August 29.

SDCC 2017: Don’t Have A Badge?

San Diego Comic-Con is an annual heart breaker for a lot of geeks. The convention grows bigger each year but there is a limited amount of badges available for purchase to the public. Tears are wept, blood is shed, as thousands attempt to get their hands on these precious SDCC passes only to be denied. IT IS A CRUEL GAME FOR OUR FRAGILE HEARTS.

Fortunately, all is not despair, because there are plenty of non-badge activities outside of the convention center. Year after year, downtown San Diego gets filled up to the brim with plenty of fun stuff. Here are a few I am looking forward to.

Amazon Prime + The Tick

Amazon is bringing it this year with a multi-room replica of The Tick’s warehouse across the street from the convention center. No details yet on what will be inside this replica but it’s The Tick so it’s probably going to be pretty fun. Amazon will also have a lounge for Prime Members on the corner of 1st and J Street which will also be Tick themed and you can watch a screening of the pilot.

These lounges are always great for a break from the heat.

San Diego Comic Con 2016: Scenes Around The Con

San Diego Comic Con—aka, Nerd Christmas in the Summer— came and went. I attended for the entire weekend this year and snapped a handful of photos of cosplayers and all the cool things around the convention. There were way more that I missed, of course. The heat was brutal this year and I am too much of a wuss to walk in extreme heat. Fortunately, there were still tons of things to see and do. Check out the photo slideshow below! You can also view the photos on our Facebook page as well.
