You too could experience the thrill of being mauled at Comic-Con!
My wallet is screaming in agony, so that can only mean one thing: it's time to pack up the car and head down to the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con. It's hard to believe it, but this will be I-Mockery's sixth time as an exhibitor, and I'm excited to see all the familiar faces (and new ones) who stop by our booth. Be sure to pay us a visit if you're coming to Comic-Con as we'll be at (Booth #E10 - near Aisles 600 & 700 on the West side of the convention center - here's a handy map). As always, we'll have a variety of nifty things for you to check out, and here's some of what you can expect:
-The unveiling of our brand new "8-bit Worlds Collide" pixel poster! This will be the first time the poster will be made available to the public, and it's also our first new pixel poster project since completing the "Four Seasons of Pixels" a few years back. I seriously can't wait for you guys to see this one, because it's a poster Pox and I have been wanting to do for years!
-Mystery Goodie Bags! Another Comic-Con first for us; we'll have a limited number of surprise goodie bags available for purchase at our booth this year. They'll have everything from crazy toys and strange candies to vintage trading card packs, stickers, cans of slime and more!
-A set of four incredibly stylish 8x8 Halloween Witch Prints by Strangepuppets!
-We'll have our complete Adult Swim Games project, Bionic Chainsaw Pogo Gorilla on-hand so you can play it with a gamepad controller and show us just how good (or bad) your platform gaming skills are. This version will have all of the levels and costumes unlocked so maybe you'll discover some new things you never even unlocked while playing it online! It's also the first time we're testing it with native gamepad support, so we're looking forward to seeing what people think of it!
-We'll have a giant Abobo on-hand, waiting to pose with you for a very special photo opportunity.
-Glow-in-the-dark "Giga Say Watt!?" I-Mockery t-shirts!
-I-Mockery Button Packs!
-I-Mockery Magnets & Stickers!
-PickleMan comic books! Protoclown's comic books!
-They've been a staple at our SDCC booth every year, so why break with tradition? Free ultra-gory "Dinosaurs Attack" vintage trading card packs from the eighties with every purchase while supplies last! (this site is old as a dinosaur, so why not?)
-The latest videos from my YouTube channel and more!
In addition to all the Comic-Con booth fun, I'll be performing in a free, LIVE Tournament of Nerds. The show will be Thursday, July 24th at 8:00PM, located at the Room 5AB in the convention center. Myself, Maddox, and other funny nerds will all be in the show along with some special guest judges, so don't miss out on it. I'll be doing one of my favorite characters at this event, so I promise you'll have a good time watching it.
As always, we had an absolute blast last year, so I can't wait to head on down to the convention and get started. It's too much fun meeting longtime fans of the site along with all the new ones. We've put a ton of work and cash into making this happen once again this year, and it's all because want to celebrate the 15+ years this site has been online with the fans that have kept us going! So, if you're going to be at the Comic-Con, be sure to stop by I-Mockery Productions Booth #E10 - near Aisles 600 & 700! (here's a map to our booth)
Myself, Re, and some other pals will all be there at the table again this year. And yes, to those of you who've asked, we'll be more than happy to sign anything you buy (or any other weird things you bring to the convention for us to sign). We'll even sign your face if you remember to bring it with you.
For those of you who can't come, we're sorry you're gonna miss it, but rest assured we'll still do our best to take as many photos of the convention as possible, though things got so busy I didn't even have a chance to post them online last year. Obviously, we're gonna be super-busy with the booth, so getting time away from it to take pictures is always tricky. Once I'm back in town from Comic-Con, I'll do my best to post them if I'm not too swarmed with work. I'll also try to update the I-Mockery Twitter account and Facebook page with some photos each day if time permits.
Again, for those of you who've never been, I feel I need to once again remind you of a very important fact: despite the misleading name, the Comic-Con has MUCH more than just comic books. True, if you're a fan of comic books, you'll be in heaven, but if you're not that into 'em, there's still PLENTY for you to do. Over the years, the convention has basically become a mega-media event. The convention center is chock full o' the latest video games for you to test out, tons of movie promotions, toys galore, incredible costumes, and some truly amazing artists as well. If anything, comics have taken a backseat to all the other crazy things going on at the convention. So yeah, the name is really misleading to some people, and that's unfortunate because they have no idea what they're missing out on.
Be sure to keep an eye on the I-Mockery Facebook and I-Mockery Twitter pages throughout the week. I'll try to update the I-Mockery Tumblr as well. I'm gonna be super busy, but I'll do my best to update them from Comic-Con whenever I have a chance.
Alright, that's all for now. Wish us luck, cuz this is gonna be one hell of an insane week... again!

there going to be a photo gallery for this one?
-RoG- on 07/29/2014 4:46 pm
I did take photos, and I'm gonna do my best to put a photo gallery together for them since I didn't have a chance to in 2013. It's just a matter of finding enough free time, which is becoming more and more of a luxury these days.

stupid question that i don't think any one will answer because of how old the post is but my sister is going to the one in Tampa and i was wondering what the difference between the San Diego and Tampa one is

J - While I haven't been to the one in Tampa, I'm sure it's a lot easier to get into, far less expensive, and your sister won't have a problem finding a hotel within a 10 mile radius. San Diego is the largest convention of its kind, and there are lots of exclusives released at it, but I'm sure your sister will still have a nice time at the Tampa one. Hope this helps!
