Over 125,000 people, tons of cute kids, and a lot of B.O. packed into one place can make for a great summer weekend; if you're into the world of comics and gaming, which I am. Every year, around this same time, San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter crawls with many comic book characters and their supporters. They come from all over the world and in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The highly anticipated Con is a straight undiluted shot of ADHD; leaving absolutely no prisoners. Everywhere you turn something is strangling your attention; notice me, buy me, play with me
Booths, containing brands from Nickelodeon to Lions Gate, Dark Horse to DC, galleries to toy collectors line the rows introducing their products. You can see incredible statues of your favorite film characters and attend panels with directors and actors from the latest shows.
There is horror, sex, dreams, and swag; tons and
tons of free swag.
