Maybe the only thing better than San Diego Comic-Con is the annual tradition of Conan O’Brien doing his show from San Diego with big time guests and surprises. Yesterday marked the beginning of the 4-day geekfest, and Conan was on his way south with co-host Andy Richter driving. Then came the music dispute. Andy only had a tape with one song, “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO. Andy wanted his song repeatedly for the 2+ hour drive, Conan was ready to toss the tape. Andy tossed Conan.
Check out where he ended up before SDCC 2017 below.
It used to be that every time I saw there was a new Conan release, I would hang my head and sigh deeply before laying my money down on the counter. It was a crapshoot, to say the least. But in the past few years in general, and this month in particular, I’ve been pleasantly surprised. This trade paperback, King Conan: Wolves Beyond The Border, is a prime example of masterful storytelling and sequential art working in perfect harmony.

As he has done in the past Conan O’Brien temporarily moved his show Conan down to San Diego for the famed San Diego Comic Con going on right now. Last year, Conan had shows dedicated to many of the superhero films of 2016, including Batman v Superman, X-Men: Apocalypse, and so on.
On Thursday night’s show from SDCC, before bringing his guests out, Conan visited Ironhead Studios, responsible for making the costumes of some of the most famous modern superheroes, including those in Batman v Superman. Conan gets to try on a Hawkman helmet, and fantasize about Wonder Woman Gal Gadot while standing with her headless body replica. He gets creative, placing casts of Ian McKellen and Matt Damon’s heads on the Wonder Woman statue. Conan then volunteers to have his own superhero suit made, meaning the self deprecating comedian had to first pose and be subjected to a full body scan. He then debuts the new Conan supersuit, a buffed out blue bodysuit featuring a C-belt and bright orange hair helmet”¦ it’s fantastic.
Bruce Campbell made an appearance on Conan on Thursday night where he cut the host’s sandwich with a chainsaw Evil Dead-style.

Since moving out to California, Conan O’Brien has used the annual San Diego Comic-Con as an excuse to go buck wild with his late-night talk show Conan on his new cable home on TBS. For Thursday night’s SDCC show while hosting the stars of the CW’s new superhero primetime lineup — Stephen Amell (Arrow), Grant Gustin (Flash) and Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) — O’Brien needed a boost of energy to deal with all the star power there. To get a quick fix, he was delivered a sandwich by the backstage crew, but the sub was too long for normal human consumption.
