One of the nifty things about how the San Diego Comic-Con has grown over its 50 years of existence (I’ve only attended… oh, probably 30. Egad.) is that the convention has outgrown the convention center and spills out for many blocks around. Various companies and groups, not wanting to pay for/not being able to make it into/seeking to do something too large for the Official Convention Space take over parking lots, restaurants, stores, parks, and any space they can manage to wrangle. And because these things are outside the bounds of the convention, they are often open to everyone, not just those of us who have managed to get badges.
And so if you’re a Peanuts fan who happens to be in San Diego on the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday of the con, you can wander down to 701 Eighth Avenue to the Super 7 store and be among the first to purchase their new line of meant-for-adults Peanuts officially-not-toys-for-legal-reason items. And are they nice?
That would either be the most wonderful thing that you own or the creature that haunts your nightmares.
They will also have other stuff in their new Peanuts line, including stickers and apparel. It doesn’t open until 9 PM on Friday, July 19, so you’ve still got a couple weeks to get down there. (And to be clear, this appears to be just a launch, not a set of convention-exclusive items, so you should be able to get them beyond the con.)
