Pics From Comic-Con -- Honest!

SAN DIEGO -- Comic-Con is more than just comics: It's the Super Bowl for nerds, a four-day extravaganza that spills out of the San Diego Convention Center, takes over the city's downtown Gaslamp District, and spreads its tendrils 12 miles east (where I live) and beyond.

In addition to comics, Comic-Con features movies, TV, collectible toys, games, and costumes, with celebrity appearances, panel discussions, screenings of movies and TV shows, and more.

Comic-Con is a highlight of my year, an opportunity to get together with friends I don't see often enough, and enjoy the spectacle produced by more than 100,000 enthusiastic fans.

And I like to take pictures at the con. There are plenty of opportunities.

I recently attended Comic-Con 2014, July 24-27. Let me give you a tour. Climb into on the Game of Thrones pedicab below to get started.

Dangerous Pedicab
Pedicabs around the Convention Center were redecorated to look like the Iron Throne in the HBO series Game of Thrones. People fought over the rides viciously. For a while, this pedicab was occupied by an obnoxious kid whose mother and uncle seemed a bit too fond of one another.

even if there were space .. > No wonder that chipmunk had to stand -- the Trolley was very crowded

Mitch, even if there were space, how'd a chipmunk sit? On its tail? You see its not very convenient.

The purpose Comic-Con is no doubt a great experience, it's not so much as dressing up in costumes that makes the four day convention amazing, it's the fact that people get to meet up and interact sharing stories an d opinions about their favorite characters.i wonder why comic con is associated with nerds because if its true then everyone has a little part of a nerd in them

Comic-Con There are good "nerd cons" on the east coast here in Boston too... hoping to get to go to PAX East sometime.  Hard to get a press pass though when you primarily write for the enterprise.  ;)

Bust SDCC is still one of the premiere events.  I have an actress friend out there who gets to go for free as an artist.   So jealous.

Death the female goth character is Sandman's Death. I think she has her own graphic novel as well.

Re: The Elvi though I think they may... and its not limited to the US, I went to a comic con type of event in Bangkok and just as many running around. A bit nuts.

Too much screen time? Do we watch too much TV?

Comic-Con is a great event (I hope to go some day) that reminds me I watch too much TV :)

Re: The Elvi though I do wonder if some of these folks dress like this on a daily basis...
