Immediately following Comic-Con, on Monday, July 22, Hubworld.com will open up voting to the rest of America at Hubworld.com/vote4ponies, where fans can vote once a day and play online games to earn up to ten more votes daily.
Finally, for the third year in a row, the cast from “The Aquabats! Super Show!” returns to Comic-Con International in San Diego ready for battle with a concert designed to recap their first two seasons of rockin’ crime-fighting adventures and to showcase their extraordinarily unique musical talents at the House of Blues on Thursday, July 18 at 8 p.m. PT (Doors open at 7 p.m.). Blending live-action comedic sketches with animation segments and awesome music, the concert promises to be a ridiculously fun event for kids of all ages.
