We kick off our first story from SDCC 2014 with the Aquabats! Super Show! that invaded SDCC this year and they brought along a special guest host Triumph The Insult Comic Dog (and later Robert Smigel) to introduce the show.

Well it’s been a very long week and if you followed our twitter feed you saw some of the insanity that is San Diego Comic Con. Unfortunately due to the lack of good and consistent wi-fi at our wonderful hotel I was unable to update the site. I would have loved to get some of the photos and stories up on the site today but the lack of sleep, eating well and tons of walking have taken their toll. So hopefully I will get some stuff posted by Wednesday so you can see and hear about the things that went on at the show. So until then hang in there and check out the twitter posts over the past few days and I will try to get Shawn Burns to post his stories about going back again this year.
ON THE ROAD!!
Pop Culture Maven is on the road today heading down to San Diego to cover the biggest Pop Culture event of the year. Make sure the you that you follow us on Twitter for the most updated news as the convention happens. I will try to update the site but it will depend on the internet access at the hotel. Last year it was dreadful and uploading anything was a nightmare. So we will see how it goes this year.
