  • BiteCon is Back: 2015 Indiegogo Launches June 1st

    Fan-run convention BiteCon’s first event was so fabulous that it seems almost impossible to top, but that’s not going to stop them from trying. It’s been less than a month since the convention ended, but the BiteCon team are already preparing for next year. The dates have been set for May 1-3 2015, and they […]


  • Countdown to ConCarolinas

    Next up on The Geekiary’s Convention Calendar is ConCarolinas, taking place this coming weekend at the Hilton Charlotte University Place in Charlotte, North Carolina. ConCarolinas is a multi-genre, multi-media convention – though generally labeled a sci-fi convention, it actually covers all speculative fiction (fantasy and horror as well as science fiction). Unfortunately ConCarolinas has sold […]


  • A Recap of Ice & Fire…Con, That Is!

    Last weekend was the second annual Ice & Fire Con, a Song of Ice & Fire/Game of Thrones convention held at Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, Ohio. As one of the three organizers, obviously I’m quite partial to this convention, and while this year was quite different from our inaugural year, it seems that everyone […]

  • TSA America: Live with Misha Collins from DC Con

    I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the live streaming event from Salute to Supernatural: Washington DC and get a glimpse at a new series of hilarious shorts by Supernatural‘s Misha Collins.  The series is co-written by Misha and his spouse, Vicki Vantoch, and friend Colin Ferguson, and Misha stars in both […]


  • Breaking Down BiteCon

    For those of you playing at home while fans attend a convention it can be hard to keep up with what’s been said. And even if you do find some quotes, it’s difficult to understand the context in which things are said, which can alter the meaning completely. So here’s a breakdown of all the […]


  • RE: Forbes’ “Report from MegaCon 2014”

    I recently attended MegaCon in Orlando, Florida.  When writing my main con report I searched the Internet for other recaps of the event and I was frustrated when I came across an article from Forbes that called out all those people who ‘don’t read comics’. I mean, David DiSalvo has been buying comics since they […]


  • Emerald City Comic Con Calvacade of Cosplay!

     Sometimes, the best guests at our comic cons are those who redefine the fandom by dressing up. These costumed players, or “cosplayers”, have become a prominent part to these large geek gatherings. They represent a kind of freedom to those that share our devotion to certain beloved characters by bringing them to life. In turn, […]


  • Emerald City Comic Con 2014, Picture Parade

    Oh, Seattle and your Emerald City Comic Con.. Here downtown, it’s back for the eleventh year. This time, the grand event sold out over a month before. The news is not surprising, considering the arrivals. Throughout three large rooms and multiple panels, were many prominent comic companies including DC, Image, Boom!, and Dark Horse and a […]


  • MegaCon 2014: Enjoyable Despite its Growing Pains

    This year was my second time attending MegaCon in Orlando, Florida, but the convention itself has been around since 1993. Originally a comic book convention, eventually it expanded to be multigenre – and its attendance grows every year. In 2013 they claimed that around 65,000 people showed up; rumors are that this year they broke […]
