We’re fresh off finishing yet another Comic-Con in San Diego, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t still exhausted from the whole ordeal. From waiting in lines, to the uncomfortable chairs in Hall H, to waiting in lines, the anxiety of getting into Hall H, also waiting in lines, plus all the energy spent on cheering and clapping in Hal H. It’s an endurance trial.
If you’ve never experienced Comic-Con for yourself, the folks at Nerdist have put together a lovely, funny, melodic little short called Comic-Con: The Musical, and it’s a pretty accurate representation of the geeky madness in San Diego.

Even though fans were going crazy over the panels for shows like The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones at Comic-Con, one panel that we didn’t get to check out that had equally rabid fans was for The Muppets and their return to television in the self-titled ABC mockumentary series.
We’ve already seen a trailer teasing the promising return of Jim Henson’s favorite creations, but seeing Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo and the rest of the crew take on a panel at Comic-Con is something entirely different. It’s actually kind of magical, continuing to make these characters feel real. So watch the entire Muppets Comic Con panel after the jump and learn some new details about the show too! Read More »

Despite the combining of all sorts of geekiness at Comic-Con, there’s thankfully not a lot of confrontation amongst the fans of Star Wars and Star Trek, Marvel and DC or Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings.
But comedian Chris Gethard decided he wanted to stir up some potential trouble by going around the Comic-Con show floor and asking fans to sign a petition to change the name of Washington DC to Washington Marvel. Why? Well, as Gethard succinctly puts it, DC sucks. And if you keep an eye out, you just might spot some dudes who look just like myself and Peter Sciretta, though you might not like what we have to say.
