Nerdswole is at San Diego Comic Con!

You heard it right! Brian, Alex, and Erin will be at the swolest nerd event of the year: San Diego Comic Con 2014!

Of course, we’ll be on the show floor, waiting for panels, and hauling all sorts of swag. However, we’re also here to witness the big events. Keep checking up on the Nerd Swole homepage for live updates and articles about the breaking news and releases that will be unveiled here at San Diego Comic-Con! Starting Thursday, all three of us will be posting as often as possible up until Sunday to cover the convention and make it like you came here yourself!

Now, to add to the SDCC hype train, here’s a list our must-see panels and booths!


Every year I’ve been going to the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones panels because they always have good footage and bring out the entire cast to talk and answer questions. Both panels are always a fun time, the creators and cast seem to love the environment. Apart from that, I think everyone should be watching the Image Comics panels to see all the best of the best in the comics industry and to hear what’s new creative ideas are releasing soon.

I’m super excited about Saturday’s Hall H presentations. Hall H will have Marvel and Warner Brothers. I’m also extremely excited to test play Super Smash Bros 4 in the Nintendo lounge. However, my favorite activity is always looking at all of the amazing cosplay people do. Here are some examples from last year:

Brian will be cosplaying this year, look out for his costume!


While the con itself was jam-packed with every fandom in existence, events and locales around the area were just as incredible. From the Nintendo Lounge (aka the mini-E3), the DC Charity Booth featuring custom KIA vehicles and auctioned off artwork, and even the Walking Dead obstacle course at Padres stadium, the whole city was alive with passion and excitement. Within the con, I can hardly wait for the Marvel and Warner Bros panels on Saturday, along with the premiere of Batman: Assault on Arkham!

And lastly, exclusives! Megaman & Megaman X from Capcom Booth!

How Heroes Feast

I’m the lucky one who got to do an article on Thanksgiving? Well for me, the coming together of family and friends is always something to be thankful for. So without feeling too guilty, let’s nerd out on big dinners and see how our favorite heroes feast.

Who better to start with than earth’s mightiest heroes following Tony Stark’s taste in food, shawarma.


Speaking of Tony Stark’s taste in food, we’ve seen Robert Downey Jr. feast in America’s greatest treasures. Burger King, NY style pizza, and most importantly, donuts.


One the other side of New York, we have Spider-Man lecturing a reeling Loki on the city’s signature dish, ball park franks.tumblr_m41ng1qr551rw2b6io1_1280

On the Dc side of things, we find that Batman too enjoys hot dogs, almost as much as he hates crime (and I thought the Flash had a huge appetite).


We now turn to the mushroom kingdom, we find the Mario Bros fighting Bowser’s army in the most unusual fashion.


I would like to say this is how Kirby would spend Thanksgiving, but I’m pretty sure that this is a normal day.


Mayor Mike Haggar is one of the few people here actually enjoying turkey on Thanksgiving. Where it’s coming from, however, is suspect.


Naked Snake eats no matter what’s in front of him, whether it’s a giant alligator, or an anaconda.

No one feasts more than Goku, who undoubtedly reign eating champ of the world and universe.


And nothing says father-son-adoptive father bonding like eating together. Sorry Piccolo, but you need to eat to be a part of this family.goku-eating-o

Of course, we can’t forget Scott Pilgrim. Even if it’s just birthday cake, Scott chows down with the best of us.



So for this thanksgiving, I hope for everyone to be thankful for their families. Enjoy your food and drink, and please don’t be this guy.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May you enjoy your own feast with your family and friends and dive into a glorious food coma.
