Viacom brands Conquer Comic-Con International

There’s been a lot of convention activity recently, and it hasn’t all been political. Comic-Con, the annual international pop culture conference, was held in San Diego from Thursday, July 21 to Sunday, July 24.

Comic-Con is a splendor of fantasy, a place that celebrates animation, cartoons, and most of all, fans. Viacom is well-acquainted with the concept of putting fans first. Our diverse content gives us the widest breadth of fan-kind in the industry. There’s no better example of this than at Comic-Con.

Our Nickelodeon exposition entertained young fans with a floor-to-ceiling booth featuring a collage of characters from SpongeBob SquarePants, Invader Zim, and The Ren and Stimpy Show. Our werewolf-romance aficionados were satiated by MTV’s Teen Wolf panel, and adult fans were able to literally insert themselves into the fictional universe of Comedy Central’s South Park as the show ramps up for its 20th anniversary in September .

Read more to see what dazzling ventures Nickelodeon, MTV, and Comedy Central presented at Comic-Con.
