It’s that time of the year again when corporate interests and media blitzes intersect in the city of San Diego, forcing its denizens to retreat indoors whilst the freaks descend upon the Gaslamp, spreading terror and swag throughout the streets in the hunt for celebrities to take selfies with.
But this cluster of corporate consumerism allows an opportunity for the biggest and best name sin comics to congregate in one amorphous drunken haze during which everyone makes bad decisions.
We discuss the worst of the bad decisions we made, including wearing shoes to the con that serve an aesthetic better than comfort, bad Chinese food, $9 beer at the Eisners, and much more.
Let us take you on a journey to a place filled with swag bags, smelly exhibiters, and unhelpful security guards.
