Do you feel it? There’s an electricity in the air: the collective energy force that comes from fandom obsession, cosplay planning, and panel-going strategizing. That’s right, kids, it’s the most wonderful time of the year: San Diego Comic-Con International 2015! And for those lucky enough to get the chance to head down to Southern California’s hottest (literally and figuratively, natch) celebration for all things nerdily geektastical, well, we’ve got an even more exciting bit of business for you, though we may be a bit biased. Because Geek & Sundry will be heading to SDCC, too! (GASP!), and we’ve got a veritable smorgasbord of good-time festivities and swiggity-swagtastic goodies you’re going to want and need in your life.
Oh and guess what? You don’t need a badge to attend our events at Petco Park — AWHAAAAA? Yup: it’s Nerd Christmas, you guys!
Over at Petco Park, the headquarters for us and our siblings sites The Nerdist and Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls, we’ve got quite the battle set up for those who believe themselves worthy medieval fighters. By that we mean we’re hosting The Joust, a gladiator-style bouncy ring wherein you and your friends can fight to the not-death. We’ll also be having more fun than a barrel of monkeys at our TableTop gaming nook, where there’s a chance you could win a Geek Out promo pack (while supplies last — we’re a hot commodity, just sayin’). We’ll also have a sweet, sweet opportunity to take a photo with a fire-breathing dragon! Uh, best Comic-Con ever?
But that doesn’t even include our panels and on-stage shenanigans, of which there are many!
- Matthew Mercer and the cast of our Twitch sensation, Critical Role, will be on the main PetCo stage on Thursday from 4-5pm.
- Over on the main stage, Felicia Day will be talking about all things G&S and her book Friday from 1:00-2:00pm— complete with a fan signing immediately after.
- Wil Wheaton and some of the cast of Titansgrave will be chatting with fans on our main stage Saturday from 11:15 – 12:15 on Saturday.
- We’ve also invited our good friend Greg Miller to record a live podcast of Kinda Funny — check that out at 3:00pm on Friday on the studio stage.
- And just because we love Amy Dallen and Hector Navarro of The Pull so much, they will be interviewing some of our favorite talent from the comic book world throughout the con weekend in Petco Park, so keep yer eyeglobes peeled for that.
Not only that, but Felicia, Wil, Ryon, and the rest of the gang will be partying it up on panels at Comic Con proper! Check them out on Thursday for fun, surprises, and possibly giveaways (yeah, there will be giveaways):
‘Geek and Sundry Presents’ with Felicia Day — Thursday, 7/9/15, 1:00p.m. – 2:00p.m., Indigo Ballroom
Join Felicia Day along with Wil Wheaton, Ryon Day, Matthew Mercer, Laura Bailey, Hector Navarro and Jessica Merizan for a chat with YOU, the audience, about everything you want to know! Favorite shows, upcoming projects, the latest happenings at Geek & Sundry, and Felicia will give a sneak peek into her book, ‘You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost)’.
Geek and Sundry’s Trivia Game: How Geeky Are You?, Thursday, 7/9/15, 7:00p.m. – 8:00p.m., Room: 23ABC
The Geek & Sundry family of Twitch Channel hosts and YOU, the audience, are tested in your geek culture knowledge. Cheer your favorites on or prove them wrong! Winners will score some sweet swag!
And just because — yes, there’s more! — we love you guys SO much, we’ve got inflatable swords, a G&S pin (featuring our badass sigil), temporary tattoos, a poster, and assorted Geek & Sundry pins in limited quantities (so get there early — they’ll go pretty fast)! You’ll even be able to buy an exclusive Geek & Sundry SDCC 2015 shirt and other merch on site, too. (Yes, there’s going to be an all-new Owl Bear Shirt available, too.)
Be sure to follow G&S on all the socials, too, to hear of any super secret events during the con (cough cough wink wink nudge nudge). Oh and make sure to use the hashtag #SDCCGeeks.
OK, so, who’s heading to SDCC? Role call with us in the comments!
