Comic Con Sign Convention Center Cool Tone

Today starts the unofficial start of summer, with Memorial Day (in the U.S., for our international readers) finishing off our upcoming three-day weekend. What are our plans? James is hanging out in Minnesota (and watching X-Men: Days of Future Past), Jeremy's finally going to see Godzilla, Kerry will be re-living The Truman Show, and Sarah's going to be staying right where she is. Literally. Like, she won't be moving from her seat until next week's podcast. Or so she claims.

This week with James chillin' in the North, Kim has returned to the podcast to talk with us about the parking pass sales and offsite events, and on a more serious note we discuss the impacts from the recent San Diego brush fires. We also take a closer look at the new exclusive announcements from NECA and Hasbro.

If you didn't turnout for the live feed on Google+, you can watch it below. If you did, thanks for your questions! Make sure you listen to the audio version below, because we gave everyone some bonus content that wasn't available on the live video feed.

It's May, and that means it's time for the return of the SDConCast, the official podcast of The San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog. For those of you who are new to the blog and the podcast, the SDConCast is where the blog's team members get together weekly to discuss the big news items, catch up on their individual geeky activities, and help prepare listeners for the convention.

For this first episode of "season three", the team talks about the recent news regarding the badge resale (and lack thereof), the big exclusives for this year announced so far, and Jeremy professes his love for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Not. He does seem to have a man-crush on Dane DaHaan, apparently.
