Wondercon 2015 Con Report!

After taking a brief hiatus from cons, I attended the 2015 Wondercon in Anaheim! With the lack of a big entertainment presence, as well as only a few big name artists and writers, I didn’t expect this show to be a successful one. But I was wrong.
Driving up to the con, I saw a long line of cars just waiting for parking! Walking on to the show floor, the con was packed for Friday at noon, and the crowds were packed all weekend long. Con season was in full swing, and Wondercon was a great warmup to Comic Con in a few months! Adding to the excitement was the news that Wondercon will be moving to Los Angeles next year. Hopefully, LA can accommodate and handle the eager fans I saw in Anaheim, and Comikaze provides an excellent indicator that LA can handle a great comic show. I guess we’ll see next year if the move was the correct one. And now, onto some of cool things I saw last weekend:

San Diego Comic Con 2014 Con Report!

On July 23-27th, San Diego was host to the 2014 San Diego Comic Con! After 10 years of attending this show, I was definitely looking forward to seeing what sort of amazing spectacles Comic Con had in store for me this year. After a week of recovery from the show, I had to admit, compared to all the other Comic Cons, this one was a bit more low key. There weren’t many major announcements on the movie front, and while there were some exciting TV shows on hand, I definitely didn’t feel the major buzz I typically do at SDCC.

However, like all previous Comic Cons, it’s a great time to mingle with artists, writers, and friends you never get to mingle with anywhere else outside of SDCC. It was fun watching the stars come on the show floor, watching artists draw some amazing commissions, and seeing the amazing exhibits some of the booths displayed, including all of the Batman cowls celebrating the Caped Crusader’s 75th birthday, as well as some very cool props from the latest movies. While it lacked that extra spark that San Diego usually brings to the table, it still was, is and always will be THE place to be. And now, on to some of the sights I saw during the weekend.

The line on preview night to get inside the show floor!

 

The con was generous enough to provide free wifi for those waiting upstairs!

Justice League: War Premiere in NYC Tonight!

Comments Off on Justice League: War Premiere in NYC Tonight!

JusticeLeagueWarA note to all attendees and contest winners for the screening of Justice League: War at NYC’s Paley Center:
The city is being battered with a powerful snowstorm, but not strong enough to withstand the Justice League … so the show will go on as planned.
However, many of those with RSVPs to attend are calling/writing to ask whether or not it will happen. It would be greatly appreciated, but your readers and myself, if you’d post some form of alert that states we will continue — and feature Christopher Gorham (the voice of Flash), producer James Tucker, director Jay Oliva, dialogue director Andrea Romano and character designer Phil Bourassa. Some very exclusive prizes will also be given away.
Stay warm and safe and enjoy the movie!
