Hello there. I guess this must be 2017 Comic-Con!

I’ve never seen San Diego Comic-Con so crowded. Saturday is usually the busiest day of Comic-Con, but this year it was plain crazy. So crowded in places you almost couldn’t move!

I somehow managed to walk all over the place. Too much fun!

I started off my walk by getting a free Nickelodeon ice cream sandwich at Horton Plaza Park!
