So San Diego Comic-Con is over, and there were lots of big announcements and blah-blah-blah Star Wars blah-blah-blah Batman v. Superman blah-blah X-Men Apocalypse blah-blah. You already know all about all of those, so I ain’t gunna get into ’em.
These are the things that happened at Comic-Con that I really enjoyed:
Junior Braves of the Apocalypse
A friend of mine had a comic book signing at Comic-Con. I still can’t get over that!
I mean, comicbookresources.com even did previews of this book. Hooray Michael Tanner! I <3 my famous friends.
Conan Goes to Comic-Con
The opening segment of Conan O’Brien’s week of shows filmed at Comic-Con was undoubtably the best part:
Joss Whedon’s Twist
Now that Joss Whedon is no longer the shepherd of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he has time to do projects for himself for a change! First up: an original comic book about an original character:
Joss Whedon had (unsurprisingly) my favorite single quote of the whole weekend when he described the book:
Basically deals with the most important moral question facing us, which is, why isn’t there a Victorian Female Batman? 
Steven Universe Extended Theme Song
There was a Steven Universe panel. And this happened:
I made the mistake of watching that during my lunch break at work last week. Fortunately no one else was around, so I didn’t have to explain that I was crying about a cartoon.
There was an Adventure Time panel, which also contained Rebecca Sugar, the creator of Steven Universe. See, she worked on Adventure Time before starting Steven Universe, and she wrote a bunch of the most memorable songs for them. And she’s written a new song for Marceline. Whose voice actress, Olivia Olson, also just happened to be on the panel. So, y’know, she helped out:
Ash vs Evil Dead
I do believe this speaks for itself. Let me know if you’re confused about anything:
And, of course, one of my favorite Instagram accounts: Wrongplayed, that purposefully (and hilariously) misidentifies the various cosplay of the con:
So that’s what I enjoyed and/or am looking forward to. How about you?
