How to Reverse Engineer

Just a reminder, if you’re going to San Diego Comic-Con, please say hello! 

I’ll be at the booth 1pm-2-pm and 4pm-5pm on the 13th and 14th. I may be there other times, but those are the guaranteed slots. We'll have copies of the third book, as well as a new version of the World's Violentest Logo "You Will Learn" shirt, and a new coffee mug. Really though, I'll sign almost any fool thing you put in front of me. Also, I’ll be at the UClick booth from 10:30am to 11:30am on the 14th. I hope to see you there!

I loved the Rainforest Cafe when I was a kid

Is that rick in the picture???

Note from Scott: No. That's my publisher, Ray.

It seems that may be a very valuable thing for so e parents.

Why, exactly, do so many of my favorite webcomic artists and authors go to San Diego Comicon, but act like Phoenix Comicon doesn't exist?

I'm sorry, it's just annoying to miss out on meeting awesome people because neither I nor the artist/author can go one state over.

Have to agree. Went to the Rainforest Cafe in downtown Disney. $120 for a family of four, very basic food, very poor service.

Panel 3 is a classic!

We used to take my daughter there. She has a lifelong fear of thunderstorms. True story.

It's not an overly loud, overly crowded, overpriced restaurant; it's a moderately priced dinner theater for kids. (I mean, it IS all those other things, but the spectacle is the whole point. Nobody goes to Medieval Times for the roasted chicken, either.)

How come we never see the guy who is about to "learn" your knowledge from the logo in any of your strips?

Rainforest Cafe is sort of like the Chuck E Cheese of restaurants...... they were awesome when they first came out. Decades later, they are just sad and creepy, and you're not sure why they are still in business?

I went to the Rainforest Cafe with my daughter last December. She loves animals, especially elephants.

The entire place freaked her out.

And it was very expensive, mediocre food.

Had my HS Grad party there, and it was mostly thunder noises. We could still hear each other talk.
They've turned the sound way up since then.

The food is "mediocre?" Apparently it's gotten a LOT better since I ate there last.

July 9, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterdac

I will treasure my ignorance of this "restaurant" "event" "experience."

The constant "state of shock" look on Rick's face is enough to deter me from the idea. Kahunaville was bad enough. I can't imagine that this is ANY better.

July 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMatt Thompson

I love how Rick has the same expression in every panel.

July 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTelanis

Did the real Rick really walk into this place on his own? If so, WTF?

If I was in America, I'd put a half-inch steel ball bearing in front of you. I guess I'm just that kind of person.

Thanks for describing the Rainforest Cafe Experience so I'll never have to go there. The way to teach children to know and care about the outdoors is to help them learn about and enjoy the actual outdoors, not a cafe. A bird-and-insect-friendly backyard garden is far more effective than any mechanical baboon.

@Tsunoba : So it goes with most comicons (Or, even gaming cons, heard of GenCon? Have you heard of Gary con? Gen Con is huge and Gary Con is named after Gary Gygax. See my point?) I'd venture a guess that most comic and comic related business'/people can only afford to go to one con. So, it is pretty much a no-brainer to attend the largest. No offense but I've never heard of the Pheonix con until right now.

Wish I could go, but I can't even afford to go to the second largest con in Toronto. (I live in Ontario but it is still a 16 hour trip for me, if I don't stop to sleep.)

Don't worry Tsunoba, no one cares about the Midwest either.

July 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKai

there's a Kahunaviille?
