Zombies gather in park, prepare to attack city.

Saturday evening, an army of zombies was spotted gathering in San Diego's Children's Park, getting ready to attack innocent humans attending 2016 Comic-Con.
Saturday evening, an army of zombies was spotted gathering in San Diego’s Children’s Park, getting ready to attack thousands of innocent humans attending 2016 Comic-Con.

I made it out alive. As you’ll see–just barely.

The 2016 San Diego Comic-Con zombie walk featured a huge army of bloodthirsty undead. They gathered in Children’s Park this evening and prepared to attack innocent humans hanging around San Diego’s nearby Gaslamp Quarter. I got away before the carnage began.

I was quickly reminded that I was living meat, so I kept a very careful distance. And I prayed these were slow zombies.

The undead kept gravitating toward the city park. Where they came from, I don't know. But they were on a mission. They planned to swarm into the nearby Gaslamp Quarter, where it was dinnertime and they could feast on innocent diners.

Many of these walking dead appeared to be in a rather state of poor health. Why did they keep eyeing me?

This must be the hippest, best dressed zombie I ever saw. A hostess might be tricked and let him into one of those more fancy restaurants in the Gaslamp.

When you're a zombie, and you want to video the coming carnage, what do you do? You jam a GoPro directly into your skull. Just keep the lens clean.

The zombies listened (to the best of their ability) as the plan of attack was laid before them. The city's living residents seemed doomed. I thought it wise at this point to discretely walk away.

Wonder Woman mural being painted during Comic-Con!

An amazing Wonder Woman mural is being painted for 2016 San Diego Comic-Con, at (Paradise) Island Avenue and Sixth Avenue

An awesome, multi-paneled outdoor mural depicting Wonder Woman is being painted during 2016 San Diego Comic-Con. Should you head a few blocks north of the convention center and find the intersection of Island and Sixth Avenue, your eyes will be astonished at what they discover!

Three Southern California artists are painting larger-than-life interpretations of Wonder Woman, DC Comic’s legendary super-heroine. The three colorful panels together compose a large bold mural, and Comic-Con fans can line up to have their picture taken with the artwork as a backdrop.  The reason?  It’s Wonder Woman’s 75th Anniversary!

How cool is this?

A small lot in downtown San Diego, several blocks from the convention center, has been converted into a celebration of DC Comic's legendary character Wonder Woman and her 75th Anniversary!
