It’s here! SDCC 2014 is definitely a geek holiday. There are so many Nerdy goodies coming out of this weekend that it takes days or even weeks to sort it all out. It’s too big and too vast to know everything until the fairy dust settles. This is a community that lights Nerd news like a boat filled with wildfire, but even the legions of fans can’t keep up with all the cool insider treats.
io9 had a great run down of “The Floor” where you can buy all the new things, many exclusive to SDCC attendees. io9 article here
Nerd makers of all kids flood the scene. Writers, artists, innovators, actors, and industry creators of every variety make appearances first hand. There are more cool Nerds around than you can shake a Mage Staff at!
Here’s a cute article from Yahoo about Bennie’s first day at Comic Con. How Benedict Cumberbatch Won the First Day of Comic Con
Then there are the teasers like these. First Marvel released an Antman poster earlier this week, then they gave us a bunch of very tense concept art pieces from Avengers: Age of Ultron. Our heroes look awesome, but they also look totally screwed.
From DC Comics we gat a sneak peek at Batman’s new duds.
Attendees should always be kind to one another anyway, but an even bigger reason to be kind to your fellow Nerds is you never know who is standing next to you. Celebrities and industry makers want to get in on the fun too so they make it a regular habit of wandering the crowds incognito to experience the Con first hand. Here is an article from last year’s SDCC from BuzzFeed, Matt Smith Walked The Floor At Comic-Con In A Bart Simpson Mask (yes THAT Matt Smith!) He wanted to hang out on The Floor so he sported a mask and an American accent while he wandered through the crowds. Next time Bart Simpson wants a hug, you might consider it, or a high five at the very least if you don’t do hugs with strangers.
It pays to be nice because you never know if you’ve been talking with, say the editor of a favorite comic, or screenplay writer of a favorite show, or a producer of your favorite web series. It’s also much easier to make new Nerdy friends that way too.
More Nerdy goodness to come over the weekend and remember…
Have fun, Con-goers! We’ll be
stalking, er I mean, watching you!
I mean… enjoying your adventures and every movement…
Peering at you from the internet…
It’s just super fun to be part of your lives…
Man, Phil Coulson was right. This fan stuff is hard.
