All-new specials, "The Nerdist: Comic-Con" and "The Nerdist: Tribute to Toys and Games"
Every year, thousands of nerds converge in beautiful San Diego, where they shun the sunny skies and head indoors for the biggest comic book convention in the world: Comic-Con. In The Nerdist: Comic-Con, Chris Hardwick and his crack team of nerd experts do their best to piece together what happened at this year's event. From cosplayers to blockbuster films, new TV shows and video games, this episode has it all. Even comic books.
