Neckface’s Comic-Con After-Party

Comic-Con is back in a big way, as Neck finally got his own booth this year.  Sadly, the chances of getting into the actual convention to see it were pretty slim, as its current iteration is essentially the nerd equivalent of Coachella. But like a true man of the people, our guy made sure to fire up an after-party for the masses—no badge or wristband required. Nuge and Blake Anderson hopped behind the turntables to keep the vibes right all night. Add free drinks and a gift bag from the iconic artist himself and you have the makings for a solid shitshow. —Ben Karpinski

Right after the convention, the crowd convened at the El Dorado

Neck Face Comic Con 2When I got there, the line was already wrapped around the block. The offer of free booze and a gift bag clearly worked, maybe the homie's anti-war message will too

Neck Face Comic Con 3Not sure if this pet owner was there for the party or not but she tapped me on my shoulder and said, “ Take a picture of my dog!” Hopefully she sees this somehow

Neck Face Comic Con 4Looks like we got a pack of pups out here

Neck Face Comic Con 27…but it had the back patio looking like this

Neck Face Comic Con 28By the end of the night, Neck was hiding out front. Signing memorabilia for 200 fans would fatigue any man. I had to snap him up with one more partygoer before he bounced. Congrats on the evening and the killer crowd. We can’t wait for more Wicked Workshop
