The Buzz had the chance to attend its first Comic Con in San Diego this July, and what a cultural phenomenon! From the cosplay to the exhibits, it was a thrill to have the opportunity to connect with so many people that share similar tastes in comics, television, and more! We had the chance to attend some off sites, activation events, and parties that allowed us to interview those in attendance.

We continue with part two of our interviews with Derrick Baca and Liz DeSilva, SVPs of Creative, Innovation and Vision for Loungefly. After my excitement over seeing Baca’s style, we talked about what exclusives they had at their booth. We also talked about how Loungefly expanded from backpacks to shirts and even more! One such article of clothing was a shirt that was designed from the STAR WARS movie poster. We dove into that as well!

Next, we hit up Mad Cave Studios booth to speak with Amit Tishler, who talked about his latest series, “Edenfrost.” While this is a fiction series, this depicts eras of history that happened, and also continuing to happen. The story follows two teenage siblings trying to survive a war-torn Ukraine during the Russian Civil War. In also a hilarious twist, we spoke with Tishler about his trek to come to Comic Con on the train!

Bertie Gregory

We end out the interviews at the Margaritaville Hotel, where we attended the National Geographic party. We spoke with Bertie Gregory, host of, “Animals Close Up.” We discussed him getting into exploration at such a young age, and how he received the title of, “Youth Outdoor Photographer of the Year.” He also spoke about his favorite place that he ever explored, and getting to experience this event at Comic Con.
