Day 3: Phoenix Comic Fest 2018

Day three of Phoenix Comic Fest is in the books. Today was a very important day. Today, my wife got to do her Fan Experience with the legendary Tim Curry. She was incredibly psyched about it.

Day 2: Phoenix Comic Fest 2018

Well, it's the first full day of Phoenix Comic Fest 2018. How are they doing?

They did shuffle us farther down the block to enter than yesterday, so we got to walk by the Redemption … Continue reading Day 2: Phoenix Comic Fest 2018

Day 1: Phoenix Comic fest 2018

Opening days of comic conventions are normally the "slow" days; few if any of the celebrity guests are there (so no celebrity panels, obviously), crowds are typically smaller, etc. So it's normally a "find-your-way-around" kind of day, casually perusing the art and vendors to get a feel for what you might want to pick up, … Continue reading Day 1: Phoenix Comic fest 2018

Fan Expo Dallas 2018

Day one of the pop culture extravaganza known as Fan Expo (Dallas flavored) is in the books, at least for me. After an uneventful flight in from Salt Lake, where we left 40 degrees and rain, to Dallas, where we were greeted by near 80 degrees and 80% humidity... and rain. I forgot how humid … Continue reading Fan Expo Dallas 2018

April Fool’s gone wrong

Just a quick note for those of you planning on attending Denver Comic Con (DCC). Apparently, someone spread an April Fool's joke that DCC was banning masks during the event. This is NOT TRUE. So don't worry. Cosplay your heart's out. Back to your lives, citizens, and have a great time. I'll be there in spirit.
