  • Universal FanCon Has Been Postponed Indefinitely: What Happened?

    Baltimore’s Universal FanCon was supposed to be one of the biggest fan conventions of the year. For its inaugural event, not only was it crowdfunded through Kickstarter, but it had some majorly awesome programming, guests, and vendors slated.

  • A Comic Convention on a Cruise Ship? Yes, please!

    Comic conventions are a thing we cover here, but we haven’t covered one quite like Fan2Sea before. This 4-night con has a surprisingly robust guest list for a first year convention- oh, and did we mention it’s on a cruise ship? The entire convention takes place on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas, a ship […]


  • Geekery and Activism Collide with the ‘Better Cup’ Project

    Better Cup – Facebook – Twitter – Website When I noticed the Better Cup project I was immediately intrigued.

  • Ice & Fire Con: A.K.A. “Camp for Game of Thrones Fans”

  • Comic-Con San Diego 2014 – Exhibit Hall Adventures

    Looking back to the great San Diego Comic Con of 2014, the Exhibit Hall was the most wonderful place. The Exhibit Hall is my favorite area of the SDCC, where dreams come true. Also a place where friendships begin, mighty contests, long hunts, great rewards, rare sights happen. This year, the area was also a place of […]


  • Comic-Con: San Diego 2014 Cosplay Gallery, Sunday

    Here below, are the last of my cosplay pics for the San Diego Comic Con 2014. These are from Sunday, arguably the most crowded full day of the SDCC Exhibit Hall.

  • Sydney Supanova 2014: I Want a Pocket-sized Stan Lee

    Supanova Expo in Sydney is always one of my favorite weekends of the year. Sure it doesn’t have the name recognition of events like San Diego Comic Con, but it’s always well organized and a lot of fun. This year was no exception – not only were there a bunch of awesome fans in attendance, […]
