Another Comic-Con has come and gone, and the Monkey in the Cage crew is WORN OUT! Even with back-up and thorough planning, tackling the awesomeness that descends on San Diego every year proved to be more challenging and rewarding than ever, and we weren’t even on the floor (legitimately)! Join us this week as we are once again joined by our favorite intern, Jared the Intern, and artist/illustrator extraordinaire Dennis Salvatier to recap all of our experiences outside of the convention center. Gas up the Batmobiles, throw back a couple of beers, and don’t let those zombies get you as we talk SDCC 2012 on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Well, it’s Monday. If you are reading this article, it means that you are still alive, and you should probably be thanking me. With the close of San Diego International Comic-Con 2012 also comes the stopping of a serious viral zombie outbreak in the greater San Diego region. Despite all the fan fare, comics, cosplay, and celebrities that abound every summer at the San Diego convention center, hands down the biggest and best attraction was AMC’s The Walking Dead Escape, conducted at PetCo Park. It’s likely you’ve already heard all about it, but I’m here to give you my “survivor” experience… because I saved your life (true story).
