I have been waking up the past few mornings to the glorious vocals of Andy Williams singing the title verse of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” in my head. Aside from Thanksgiving, I have never been one to celebrate holidays, so for me Comic-Con International really is the most wonderful time of the year. Half a week of gaming, celebrities, comics, toys, movies, panels, and cosplayers, all in a city filled with geeks (or as Greg calls them, “our people”). Just doesn’t get any better than that.
As a bonus this year, I get to slack off on my costuming and will be going dressed as Brad Guy from our upcoming web comedy series. But if you are here reading this then you probably already knew that part. What you might not know is that Greg has decided to embrace his calling as an obnoxious loud mouthed drunk and will be appearing at SDCC2019 as John Doe, aka The Hearst Castle Ghost!
I will admit I am a little nervous over the prospect for a couple of reasons. The first is the worry over Greg walking around the convention and San Diego in a bathrobe, t-shirt and boxer shorts. I’ve shared a hotel room with him and can say that no one should be subjected to that image in person. The second is the worry over the Ghost being exactly who he is: an offensive drunken drug-addled ’60s throwback yet loveable ghost. But these are “our people,” so what could possibly go wrong?
There may or may not be a video forthcoming in honor of Brad Guy and the Hearst Castle Ghost attending Comic-Con, so check back here and on our YouTube channel over the next few days. Once SDCC starts, keep an eye out wherever batshit crazy people congregate in or around the convention, because that is where you will likely find the Ghost hanging out. Have fun and we will see you there!
