#Vikings at #SDCC

Love Vikings, hoping to see them again at SDCC this year - especially new comer Alexander Ludwig who I love from Hunger Games and is from Vancouver too!
A representative at the History Channel has confirmed to us that Vikings will be returning to Comic-Con this summer, although whether that return means another panel, offsite experience, or both, is still up in the air.
Actor Clive Standen, who plays Rollo, the brother of Ragnar, asked fans on Twitter how many fans “will be raiding with us in San Diego” at Comic-Con, implying that he will be in attendance for whatever The History Channel has planned.

Gaslamp starts to get ready for #SDCC

One of the most fun things to see at Comic-con (and there are MANY) are the banners put up on the street. I always imagine ways to climb the street lamps and carefully tear down the banners without causing damage and without getting into trouble and without killing myself. Needless to say, I have never actually attempted it, though after a few drinks at one of the swanky SDCC parties, it always sounds like a good idea...

Reality hits us whenever the Comic-Con banners are posted in the Gaslamp and around San Diego. This is the first sign, pun intended, that SDCC is right around the corner.
So as we are a month away from the official start of SDCC 2014, we have word that the Comic-Con banners are now being prominently displayed around the Convention Center.
[UPDATE June 25] In addition to the Big Hero 6 banners which we mentioned below, there are also now banners for Guardians of the Galaxy up around the city of San Diego – though we’ve heard they have yet to make their way to the Gaslamp District just yet. Best of all, the Guardians banners actually give each Guardian their own banner (well, almost: Rocket and Groot share one banner).
