WE ARE 1976 took a little trip so SoCal this year to investigate the
ongoings of a little
comic convention in San Diego. From the time we
landed in California to the time we
boarded the plane back to Dallas,
we experienced an event that can hardly be described

was buzz. There was excitement. There was waiting. There was a lot of

what the next issue that Bloom County was going to tackle
One of the funniest panels of the whole weekend involved the creators of
three shows - Robot Chicken, Venture
Brothers and Metalocalypse. They entertained the crowd of 4,000 Adult Swim fans. Between the
the writers to the shameless plugs to their retail products, the energy of the room was spewing with hysteria.
Our Shameless attempt to stalk Olivia Munn. As one of the host of the G4
variety show for nerds, Attack of the Show,
her where abouts was
definitely a priority.
The panel for the hit show Community was another one worth the wait. The
rapport of the cast was one that
portrayed a feeling of family. The
panel and the fans laughed our way through one of the quickest hours of
