Comics Alliance’s Guide To The 2013 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Guide 2013 ComicsAlliance
Macy's

As a kid, I used to love springing from my bed and scrambling to the living room every Thanksgiving morning to catch Macy's annual balloon-filled parade. Why, one of my most cherished Thanksgiving memories is my mom yelling for me to hurry back from a bathroom trip in 1993 to see a massive Sonic the Hegehog balloon snag on a tree or something and deflate. These days I live out west, so by the time I'm able to stumble from sleep into the kitchen to brew the first of what will add up to be about 15 cups of coffee, Twitter and Tumblr have already spoiled the entire New York City-scheduled event for me. I don't blame those in another time zone for their enthusiasm, but there's no way I'm waking up at 6 a.m. on a holiday to hear intern-scrawled soundbytes stuttered in saccharine tones by whoever's hosting from The Today Show along with them. I just want to set a DVR and skim the greatest hits between brewing some coffee and taking my pug out to poop. Forunately, after years of mediocrity, the Macy's website has finally yielded a solid lineup of what to expect this year. We dug in to pick out the baloons, floats and balloonicles (BALLOONICLES!) that comic book fans are going to want to look for, whether they're awake from 9-10:30 a.m. EST or not. Plan your annual viewing after the jump.

Marvel explores that notion in this week's "Marvel Super Heroes: "What The--?!" episode "99 Hulk Balloons."

The Jade Giant and others want nothing more than to join the fun, but nobody seems to rival the Web-Slinger in terms of popularity - especially not M.O.D.O.K.
