Westercon 68 (L.A. Science Fiction Fantasy Society Event)
Jul 2 – Jul 5 all-day

In 1948, Walter J. “Doc” Dougherty of the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society proposed that an annual West Coast convention be started for West Coast fans who couldn’t afford to travel east each year. The first Westercon was held in September, 1948. It was a one-day event with an attendance of 77.

Westercon is held in different cities each year. By the rules, it must be held in North America west of 104° West Longitude, Hawaii, or in Australia should Australia annex The United States1.

Within this zone, Westercon has been held as far east as El Paso, Texas; as far south and west as Honolulu, Hawai’i; and as far north as Calgary, Alberta.

Where Westercon will be in any year is selected by the Westercon two years previously, so Westercon 68 was selected to be in San Diego by the members of Westercon 66, and the members of Westercon 68 will select the location of Westercon 70.

Graphic novel superstar Raina Telgemeier, the best-selling author of Smile, Sisters, and Drama, is coming to the San Diego Central Library in downtown San Diego, on Tuesday, July 7 at 6:00 PM for “An Evening With Raina,” a free event to help you get ready for Comic-Con International!

Gear can be rented in advance from Waterhorse Charters in advance (at least 72 hours prior to trip date).

The Escape is BACK! For the first time ever, confront the characters from The Walking Dead. You can run from the walkers, but you can you Escape the Saviors?

Survive
You’ve made it inside the walls of the Alexandria Safe Zone, but those walls are falling in on you as you must run, climb, crawl and hide from hordes of walkers and outsiders who want to see your demise. Can you make it out alive?

Turn
Choose to join the undead and roam the Escape as a walker. Learn what it takes to become and behave like a walker.

Watch
If you aren’t up to the challenge, take part as a Spectator. Watch key moments of the sidelines of the course.
What is The Walking Dead Escape?
Your group has arrived at the Alexandria Safe Zone, but safety is quickly fleeting as you confront characters from Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead.

This isn’t just an obstacle course, this is an immersive experience into the world of The Walking Dead. Sure, you’ll need to run for your lives, but you’ll also need to make decisions alone or as a group that will determine whether your captured or escape the menacing Negan and his group of Survivors.

Cosplayers of Retro Arcade Games
Jul 11 @ 2:00 am – 3:00 am

Hoping to start something new at SDCC… If you’re a cosplayer and a big fan of those old-school, coin or token operated arcade games… Then let’s gather together for a potentially epic photo shoot!

This is planned for Friday, July 10 at 2 locations. First is outside the convention center so those without attendee badges can join. This first gathering will be at 11am at the grassy area between the Hilton Hotel and the convention center. After some time, those with badges will proceed inside at a location yet to be determined. We’re open to suggestions! 🙂

If you are joining, please state which character and from what game you will cosplay. We prefer a different character per cosplayer but there’s definitely no problem if there are duplicates 😉

So far we have:

QBert – Mic
Tapper – Robert
Dig Dug – Ben
Bowser – Chris

Feel free to extend this event and invite other cosplayers who you think would be perfect for this gathering. If you happen to know of photographers or videographers who can join us and help capture our awesomeness, invite them too!

Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!!!

Ghostbusters ‘Mass-Hysteria’ Fan Event
Jul 11 @ 2:00 am – 3:00 am

*This event starts at 7:00pm PST* see below

FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED. NO RSVP

Apparently, there is something very very strange in the neighborhood… again, so we’re back!

Prepare for a disaster of biblical proportions! Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes… The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… MASS HYSTERIA!

Well most of that is accurate for San Diego Comic-Con International, am I right? anyway, for all you Ghostbusters out there we are hosting a get together of like minded Paranormal investigators and eliminators.

This is being hosted at the fantastic Restaurant/Bar “The Werewolf”, just a few blocks away from the convention center

Also The Gorgeous Ecto-1 will also be on display outside of The Werewolf during the event, for anyone looking for the most epic photo op in San Diego!

The Ecto-1 will be there from 7:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M. *Unless a Paranormal Emergency Occurs” example: End of the world, Ragnarok, Museums with talking paintings, etc.

Oh… and did I mention there are going to be a lot of Unlicensed Nuclear Accelerators there as well…

This is being hosted by the fans for the fans.

All ages until 9:00 P.M. then its 21 and up.

I want to STRESS something to all the Ghostbuster fans out there that really want to attend this event, I HIGHLY recommend that you get to the Werewolf As early as you can, to at least get in the doors and maybe get a table, if not it will be standing room only. And capacity is limited. I dont want to disappoint those that really want to be there. But I know right now there will be some Q and A, and some other exciting things for all the hardcore Ghostbuster Fans out there. SO this is definitely a first come first served.

This is also a free event to attend.

Morgan Spurlock presents Geeks For Peace at Comic-Con
Jul 11 @ 2:00 am – 6:30 am

Morgan Spurlock introduces Geeks For Peace party – Kevin Smith, Frances Fisher, Greg Grunberg and more
Moniker Warehouse, 705 16th Street, San Diego CA 92101
Friday 10th July 2015 7pm-12am

When it comes to San Diego Comic-Con and geek culture, Morgan Spurlock has form. As the director of the acclaimed Comic-Con: A Fan’s Hope documentary, he has had more access to nerds than most. His other documentaries and TV shows have also had the platform to affect real positive change – and he’s been awarded for it, too.

Spurlock was presented with the Peace Hero Award by the youth of Kids for Peace in 2013 for his commitment to kids, peace, healthy living and using his voice for good. In return, he’s returning to Comic-Con and he is doing so with an event that is something rather special: Geeks for Peace.

Morgan Spurlock will host the first-ever Geeks for Peace event on Friday, 10th July at 7.00pm at the Moniker Warehouse in San Diego during Comic-Con. The party will be co-hosted by Kevin Smith and Gotham Chopra and will feature special guests including Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Frances Fisher, Greg Grunberg (Heroes), Scott Grimes (American Dad, Justified), Efren Ramirez (Napoleon Dynamite), Eddie Matos (Finding Carter) and Adrian Pasdar (Heroes, Agents of Shield). The Band From TV will perform and guests will also include an art auction.

There’s also a stunning amount of original art that has been gathered from the likes of Bob Fingerman, Chad Gordon, Erik Otto, Jeff Soto, Michael Leavitt, Steve Seeley and Tara McPherson, which will be able to be bid on for Friday 26th to Friday 10th June, the day of the party.

Funds raised during Geeks For Peace will help Kids For Peace support and expand their programs to underserved youth in the U.S., Pakistan, Iraq, Liberia and Kenya. A very worthy cause, I think you’ll agree.

Head to geeksforpeace.org to bid on tickets – admittedly, an eyewatering £160 approx. ($250), but think about it, with the talent in the room, incredibly worth it.

Chris Hardwick: The Funcomfortable Tour
Jul 11 @ 2:30 am – 4:00 am

Chris Hardwick – The Funcomfortable Tour
Balboa Theatre, San Diego, CA
Fri, Jul 10, 2015 07:30 PM

Chris Hardwick was born on the starship Enterprise and is the product of two red-shirts that quickly met their demise in a transporter lovemaking mishap. He was banished by the Federation to earth after “inappropriate conduct” on the holodeck with a computer-generated Buffy Summers. Since then, Chris has become a professional stand-up comedian and a self proclaimed nerd.

He hosts “The Soup’s” geeky little brother show “Web Soup,” and plays with gadgets on “Attack of the Show,” both on a channel that awkward teenage boys refer to as “G4.” Chris is also a writer for Wired Magazine and a talking cow on Nickelodeon’s “Back at the Barnyard.” He is fully aware that there are no male cows with udders in life so please keep that question in your brain.

In his spare time, Ensign Hardwick is attempting to build an evil nerd empire under the moniker “Nerdist”, which includes: a wildly popular blog at Nerdist.com, a top ten comedy podcast on iTunes, a following of 1.3 million delightful supplicants on Twitter, a book from the wise publishers at The Penguin Group, and his very own social network called “The Node”, each of which makes up a different arm of a growing corporate beast that Hardwick hopes, “…will one day bring destruction and ruin to the mouth-breathing, jock masses…paving the way for a world where video games are free, Cheetos are currency and robot concubines vigorously endeavor to sate our sexual thirsts.”

Chris makes regular appearances on Chelsea Lately, The Soup and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Many weekends out of the calendar year, he uses an electric amplification device to make strangers in comedy club settings like him by telling jokes, most likely due to a deep-seeded need for attention that was forged during his tormentingly unpopular junior high years. Additionally, he has played at numerous comedy/music festivals including Just for Laughs, US Comedy Arts, SF Sketchfest, SXSW, Coachella, Bumbershoot.

He currently resides in Los Angeles while enjoying salt & vinegar chips and Doctor Who marathons.

Harleypalooza 2015!
Jul 11 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Date: Saturday July 11th
Time: 12:15 – 1:30 pm
Location: TBD

Its that time of year again guys and gals! Comic Con will soon be upon us, which means its time to don our white makeup, snazzy threads and jester cowls to meet, greet and take tons of goofy pictures! That’s right, Harleypalooza 2015 is almost here, hosted by Mischief & Mayhem and Ian Turner!

This is a gathering for all fans and cosplayers of Harley Quinn, as well as their Puddins and Reds. ♥ We welcome any DC costumers who want to play before the DC shoot as well.

***ALL VERSIONS OF HARLEY QUINN ARE WELCOME!***
Despite which outfit or version we prefer, we’re all Harley fans! This is an event to spread the Harley Quinn love and fangirl over our favorite characters together! Every Harley cosplayer is gorgeous (or handsome!) and we’ll have no nitpicking or bullying, kapeesh? 😉

Traditionally, Harleypalooza is held on Saturday afternoon. Last year’s location on the back stairs turned out to be a great lead in to the DC Photoshoot!

HOWEVER I know tickets were just as hard to come by this year as usual, so I do want to try and accommodate for those Harleys and their partners in crime who may not be able to make it in. We are looking into offsite locations that are still photoshoot-friendly. If you have any suggestions, we’re all ears!

(I also plan on having little gifts once again for each and every one of you, so be sure to confirm if you’re going or not by mid-June! ;D )

Chris Hardwick: Nerdist Podcast Live!
Jul 12 @ 2:30 am – 4:30 am

Balboa Theatre, 868 4th Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101
Tickets: $35 ($45.40 with fees)

Chris Hardwick was born on the starship Enterprise and is the product of two red-shirts that quickly met their demise in a transporter lovemaking mishap. He was banished by the Federation to earth after “inappropriate conduct” on the holodeck with a computer-generated Buffy Summers. Since then, Chris has become a professional stand-up comedian and a self proclaimed nerd. He hosts “The Soup’s” geeky little brother show “Web Soup,” and plays with gadgets on “Attack of the Show,” both on a channel that awkward teenage boys refer to as “G4.” Chris is also a writer for Wired Magazine and a talking cow on Nickelodeon’s “Back at the Barnyard.” He is fully aware that there are no male cows with udders in life so please keep that question in your brain.

In his spare time, Ensign Hardwick is attempting to build an evil nerd empire under the moniker “Nerdist”, which includes: a wildly popular blog at Nerdist.com, a top ten comedy podcast on iTunes, a following of 1.3 million delightful supplicants on Twitter, a book from the wise publishers at The Penguin Group, and his very own social network called “The Node”, each of which makes up a different arm of a growing corporate beast that Hardwick hopes, “…will one day bring destruction and ruin to the mouth-breathing, jock masses…paving the way for a world where video games are free, Cheetos are currency and robot concubines vigorously endeavor to sate our sexual thirsts.”

Chris makes regular appearances on Chelsea Lately, The Soup and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Many weekends out of the calendar year, he uses an electric amplification device to make strangers in comedy club settings like him by telling jokes, most likely due to a deep-seeded need for attention that was forged during his tormentingly unpopular junior high years. Additionally, he has played at numerous comedy/music festivals including Just for Laughs, US Comedy Arts, SF Sketchfest, SXSW, Coachella, Bumbershoot.

He currently resides in Los Angeles while enjoying salt & vinegar chips and Doctor Who marathons.

The Nerd HQ app, powered by IGN, will have a complete schedule of Conversations for a Cause, IGN-managed stage events, parties, maps and more. Also included within the app will be links to buy tickets for the Nerd HQ panels and push notifications that will inform users of special events like the “Smiles for Smiles” photo opportunities.
