  • 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.

  • 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 […]

    We’re just a week away from MegaCon 2014 in Orlando, Florida, and this convention is still bringing surprises to the table.

Mr. Bennett joins the ranks of some other awesome guests, including David Morrissey, Sonequa Martin-Green, […]


  • Con Nooga: The Diamond in the Rough of Southeastern Conventions

    It’s no secret that I’ll travel pretty far for a good convention, and in the past couple of years I’ve certainly experienced my fair share of the big (MegaCon) and the small (MonsterCon), the single-genre (Ice & Fire Con) and the so-many-genres-I-don’t-know-what-to-do-with-myself (Dragon Con). But of course, the willingness to travel doesn’t make me any […]
