Take some time this week to remember your original happy hour: Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up at dawn, jumping on the couch with a bowl of chocolate cereal, turning on the ‘toons, tuning out the outside world, and working your way into a sugar hangover before noon. Oh yeah, it's that time of year again: San Diego Comic Con 2016 is here! Whether you're here in town or wish you could be, this show is for you! Grim, Mark, and guest host Slick McFavorite from the Open Your Toys podcast keep the SDCC tradition going by talking about what can be found in the Gaslamp and, more importantly, what might be getting under your radar this year. That's right, it's time for the annual SDCC Alternative Spectacular! This year we once again offer up alternatives to plunking down in the Hall H line for 36 hours just to maybe see that one big panel, including such gems as the Nancy Cartright art exhibit at the Chuck Jones gallery, or some small alternative press from Devastator, or even the alternative "big panel" from major VFX firm Halon Entertainment tucked away in the cavernous Room 6A, and many many more. Featuring interviews with "Bart Simpson" herself Nancy Cartright (Chuck Jones Exhibit), The Music of DC Comics: Volume 2 music producer Peter Axelrad, Devastator Press's Amanda Meadows and Geoffrey Golden, and Halon's visual effects artists Tefft Smith and Ed W. Marsh from the blockbuster Alice Through The Looking Glass. We packed lots of bonus material (Transformers the Movie on Blu-ray SHOUT! Factory #4118, October Toys #5250, Nobility the Series #1949 ) in this one for all of you Cerealites needing something to listen to on the long drive or flight out to sunny San Diego, but all of you who can't make it this year (sorry Slick!) please feel free to listen and get excited with us! After all... This is the only SDCC Alternative show!
