Adult Swim @ San Diego Comic Con 2014: The Full Slate O’ Stuff
The biggest convention of the year every year is a couple of weeks away, and Adult Swim is going to be there with Fun Houses and Meatwad domes and prize wheels and a whole load of stuff for you to do. Scrap the rest of your San Diego Comic Con International schedule: Swim’s takin’ over.
Swim’s got a booth each year at SDCC (unlike NYCC, unfortunately– we hope they’ll get one again one day!) and each year, they give attendees the chance to win cool stuff. And also buy cool stuff. Give them your money.
This year is no different, as Swim is setting up camp at booth #3721 and is bringing along the Wheel of Wonder. As the official website says, “bear-hugs. Cloaks. Mystery prizes and fateful spins await your spinning hands”. Go get you some swag.
Always the highlight and main thing to do at Comic Con (besides the show floor), panels bring news, free crap, laughs, and moments you’ll never forget thanks to people who make shows you like (I’ll always remember our shouting match against the panel next door at the New York Comic Con 2010 Delocated! panel). What do the gang from Williams Street have set up for you? So much. Just, so much.
Thursday, July 24th
- Childrens Hospital Panel, Presented by WB and Adult Swim. 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM in Panel Room 25ABC.
Friday, July 25th
- The 5th Annual Adult Swim Panel Block at the Hilton Bayfront Indigo Ballroom.

Here’s a real cool thing about these panels: a Comic Con badge is NOT REQUIRED TO ATTEND THESE PANELS. So if you’re in the area, pop by.
- Adult Swim Panels at the Petco Park Parking Lot, Park Blvd and Tony Gwynn Dr
- 8:00 PM – 8:45 PM: Black Jesus
- 9:00 PM – 10:00 PM: The Adult Swim Animation Panel: Superjail!, King Star King, Mr. Pickles
These are your chances to sit in rooms (or parking lots) and hear your favorite creators talk about their stuff, and find out when stuff comes back and probably see some cool unreleased stuff from new episodes! It’s cool. Go do it.
Get an object. Get a marker. Get that object scribbled on by celebrities.
A note about all of the signings: there won’t be a normal line for any of these. Tickets will be allotted for each signing by a drawing, and they’ll be first come, first served. The limited tickets will be given out early in the day, and if you’re dead set on attending one of these, you can start lining up for one of the tickets once doors open day of the signing.
The tickets for signings on Thursday the 24th and Friday the 25th will be given out in the Sails Pavilion. The drawings for tickets will be held at 8 AM, day of the signings, and you may line up when doors open that day.
Tickets for the Saturday, July 26th signings will be available at the Adult Swim booth itself. Tickets are limited, and first come, first served.
Thursday, July 24th
- Childrens Hospital Signing from 4:45 to 5:30 at the WB Booth #4545.
Friday, July 25th
- Mike Tyson Mysteries signing from 5:00 – 5:45 at the WB Booth.
Saturday, July 26th
- The Venture Bros signing from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM at the Adult Swim booth.

THE FUN HOUSE!
It’s back! For the second year in a row, Adult Swim’s bringing along the Fun House. It’ll be open July 24th-26th, from 3;00 PM – 10:00 PM each day.

FREE RIDES FROM ADULT SWIM AND LEXUS!
From July 24th-27th, Adult Swim and Lexus will give you a free ride. Yep.
During the con, there will be special Adult Swim Lexus CT hybrid cars driving around San Diego. Need a lift? Flag one down, and they’ll take you anywhere within the service area. You have to be 18 or older to get a free ride from Swim and Lexus. For more information, like what the cars will look like, the service area, and the rules of the road, click these shiny words here.
Whoever isn’t attending the con, whether you’re nowhere near San Diego or you just plain ol’ didn’t get a ticket, the panels will be online after (as evidenced by the Watch Panels option on the Comic Con page).
