The world’s most famous comic con happened this weekend… and we (sadly) weren’t there to see it. But here’s a roundup of the awesome stuff we’ve seen and heard about it!


Someway, somehow, Ariel became the mascot for all of us stuck at home when the rest of the geeky world was off having fun.

SDCC previewed a lot of stuff, including the new Batman cape and cowel and a lot of teaser posters (for Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, Mad Max Road Fury, Horns, Mockingjay, and many more). And some trailers.

Everyone from The Guardian to Business Insider posted photos of the SDCC cosplay.

American Ninja Warrior Kcy Catanzaro made short work of the Assassin’s Creed obstacle course, provoking a lot of comments about the amount of work it took to photograph her mid-course.

We weren’t the only people who weren’t at SDCC this weekend, and we weren’t the only people who had mixed feelings about the issue. (If you click that link you’ll find a photo of Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany cosplaying as Shaun from Shaun of the Dead.)

Hey, maybe we’ll see you there next year!
