SDConCast - The Official Podcast of the San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog

Have you ever wondered how a giant inflatable Ozzy Osbourne is made? Or where it goes when it’s no longer on the Promenade during San Diego Comic-Con? Or if you’re Drax, you might wonder why is inflatable?

This week on SDConCast we are welcoming Shawn McEachern, President of Inflatable Design Group, to find out the answer to some of these questions. We’ll also cover all the latest SDCC news, exclusives, offsites, and more.

Welcome to week two of the 2022 season of SDConCast, the official podcast of the San Diego Comic-Con Unofficial Blog. This week we’re joined by Gary Sassaman, former Director of multiple departments at Comic-Con International, including Director of Programming (2000-2007), Director of Print and Publications (2007-2012), and Director of Print and Digital Media (2012-2021), to talk about his time at SDCC. Just what does it take to make a Souvenir Book? What has Gary been up to since retirement? We’ll discuss all of that and more, as well as the latest SDCC news and exclusives.

You can find Gary’s final installment of his My Life in Comics series on his blog, Innocent Bystander, which just wrapped up today and covers his time at Comic-Con International, his career as a small press comics creator and publisher, and more. It’s a great read, with an in-depth look behind the curtain into the worlds of Comic-Con and independent publishing.

Join us for a fun and informative show!
