SAN DIEGO–Adult Swim returns to San Diego Comic Con with exciting activities and panels inside and outside the San Diego Convention Center this week.
Fans can always expect the unexpected from Adult Swim, as they dive into celebrity-filled panels and signings featuring series stars, creators and producers from Robot Chicken and Rick and Morty, a new animated sketch show Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio and the much-anticipated Samurai Jack. The free swag will be flying at the network’s official booth in the convention center.
First stop, the convention center. Get your game on at the Adult Swim Booth (#3721) with the Return To Feline Fun Hole Slide Mouth, Part 2. Limber up and come lob fishy fun sacks into the illuminated cat holes.
The fun continues with Adult Swim On The Green, located behind the convention center at 5th Avenue Landing and Convention Way, Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Carnival Midway will be full of fancy games and Adult Swim-themed prizes. Fans can have their photo taken in the Mr. Pickles photo booth, then head over to The Meatwad Full Dome and challenge their mind and stomach to 360 degrees of trance-inducing hallucinations in “Six Minutes Of Your Life That You’ll Never Get Back.” Back for its fifth year, State Farm is helping Adult Swim fans best prepare for the con with an Oversized Prizeball Machine that will dispense prizes to maximize fan experience on the green. A few lucky con-goers will win access to exclusive Adult Swim screenings and on-site games. All events are free for those that are 18 and over. RSVP at AdultSwimPresents.com for fast track entrance.
The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down, so come cuddle up with Adult Swim under the stars and check out what’s on the horizon with Nighttime on the Green featuring screenings from 8 to 10 p.m. with lineup starting at 7 p.m. On Thursday join Toonami Pre-Flight for a night of behind-the-scenes information on Adult Swims’ popular anime programming block with hosts Jason DeMarco, Gill Austin, Steve Blum (Voice of TOM), and Dana Swanson (Voice of SARA). Friday is “Things You’ve Never Seen,” a night of specials and original pilots. On Saturday, don’t miss an improvised evening with Rick and Morty creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.
