This is it!  We are into Comic Con month itself, July!  Hopefully y'all have recovered enough from yesterday's BBQ's and blowing stuff up to take a gander at this week's stroll down memory lane!  This time we travel back to 2013, another big year for the show and my last Comic Con in my 20's!  It's tough being an old fart now, but I must soldier on!  Anyway, on with the show!  Enjoy...

Comic Con certainly brings out the craziness in everybody!

The Gaslamp Quarter on Preview Night.  This is about as calm as 5th Avenue gets during the show.

The Nickelodeon booth!  I built the LED walls for the booth this particular year!  It's funny how last year, Nick was all about their old shows and cartoons.  Holding out hope that one of these days Nick will just cancel their TeenNick channel and just turn it into The Splat 24/7!

Lumpy Space Princess!  The greatest character to ever come out of Adventure Time!

 SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!!!  The Tick and Arthur ham it up in the exhibit hall!

 Lilly!  Always loves me some Munsters cosplay!

A pig and pooch!  You never know what you might find in Downtown San Diego during Comic Con!

 This unexpected journey led them there and back again and then some!

Is it me or does the Brotherhood have all the cool girl mutants in it?

Use the Schwartz Barf!  It's in everyone!  Incidentally, 2017 marks 30 years of Spaceballs!  Really hoping Comic Con honors this milestone somehow!

The whole Where's Waldo cast showed up!  Few probably remember that it was a Saturday morning cartoon back in the early 90's.  Probably better left forgotten.

The Powerpuff Girls!  Blissfully unaware of the bastardized reboot Cartoon Network would launch and almost promptly cancel just three years later!

The Rocketeer!  One of the greatest comic creations of the modern era!

We'll wrap up today's festivities with a look at the Adult Swim inflatable fun castle they used to set up at the Petco Park Interactive Zone.  Never got the chance to go into it sadly.  I usually have my brother's kids with me at Con, and to get into the castle, you had to be 18.  So it was a no go with the kids.  These days, Adult Swim sets up a free carnival at a park just behind the Convention Center that always gets a crowd.  One highlight included a viewing of the Rick & Morty season two premiere with live commentary from the cast!

And that's a wrap on this week's look back at Comic Con 2013!  Some of the things I remember the most about it was setting it all up!  In all, I built the LED walls for Nickelodeon and BBC America and set up all the AV at both of Hasbro's booths.  Building SDCC is always an experience.  It's pretty cool to get the first look at everything, even it means being sworn to secrecy until AFTER Preview Night starts!

And that's all she wrote for this week!  We'll be back next week with a look at Comic Con 2014!  In the meantime, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
