I know this is a bit late, but it literally took me almost a week to recover from the madness that was Comic Con 2014. It was surreal to me that I actually had a golden ticket to get into the biggest event of the summer. What I love most about Comic Con is the revenue and attention it brings to our fabulous city. What better place to hold an event like this than America’s Finest City? We sure know how to host a party.
This Comic Con was special to me because it was the first time that I got the privilege of having a press pass (Thank you The Pulse SD). I got to see this event from a different angle.
The Pulse Team put the pedal to the medal and scheduled all of our work for Saturday. We braved the endless crowds, the frenzy of the press areas, and the unforgiving heat and humidity to get the kind of coverage that only The Pulse Team can bring you!

Another thing that was special to me about this Comic Con was that I actually attended a lot of it alone. I was free to roam the Con on Thursday and Friday, and since I was the only bum with these days off , I roamed solo. I was kind of bummed that I wouldn’t have anyone to go with but I was surprised at how much fun I had, and how many new friends from out of town I made. I guess when you gather a bunch of Comic Book, Video Game, Pop Culture, or Nerd Enthusiasts in one place, we’re bound to make friends with each other!
I know you’re probably wondering about the costumes and celebrity sightings right? Honestly, I was so overwhelmed with all the activities going on, I didn’t think to grab my phone and snap pictures of these things. I was busy just standing there in awe. I did manage to get these:
I’m having Comic Con withdrawals now (is that a thing?) . I can’t wait until next year. Even if I don’t get a pass next year, hanging out around the area is fun. I love getting caught up in the festivities and people watching. Oh and becoming a Viking.
Until next year Comic Con!
