Lots of fun things going on in San Diego for Comic Con

There is so much happening around the Gaslamp Quarter for Comic Con. Below are a few things you can explore:

The Walking Dead Escape: To celebrate the landmark 100th issue of The Walking Deadgraphic novel, the comic-turned-TV phenomenon will be the subject of a massive obstacle course at PETCO park from July 12-14. You can either play as a “Survivor” or a “Walker.” Tickets are still currently on sale, but don’t expect that to last long. (Official website.)
Extra at Comic-ConWarner Bros. is hosting a free outdoor festival at San Diego’s Bayfront Park. Presented by the newsmagazine Extra, the stage promises to feature live interviews with stars from WB-owned shows (like The Big Bang Theory and Fringe.)

Tin Fish restaurant will be transformed into a Grimm playpen, complete with professional makeup artists applying skin carvings to anyone willing. The network also promises to show off the actual Ferris wheel from the Revolution series premiere and something called “Revolution Village,” which hopefully won’t end with Giancarlo Esposito killing some or all of your loved ones.

Cartoon Network Take OverThe cultishly beloved Adventure Time series will have an exhibit at San Diego’s New Children’s Museum, featuring a recreation of the show’s topsy-turvy fantasy world. Guaranteed to please ten-year-olds and certain college students in a certain frame of mind.
