  • Sydney Supanova 2014: Falling for Ming-Na Wen

    The first glimpse I had of Ming-Na Wen at Sydney Supanova Epxo was when she crashed Stan Lee’s panel just to give him a kiss on the cheek. That right there was basically enough to make me love her – and then she took the stage on her own, and I was lost. But enough […]


  • 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, […]


  • Phoenix Comicon 2014: Bigger And Better Than Ever

    Recently, I had an opportunity to attend Phoenix Comicon, which took place at the Phoenix Convention Center in Arizona. Even if the first day of the convention was disappointing, due to the media relations department informing me that they weren’t able to set up any of the interviews I requested, depriving with that our readers […]


  • Supanova 2014: Conventions, Australian Style

    Ever wondered what Australian fans do in lieu of the northern hemispheres more famous Comic Con and Dragon Con. Well this is it. Supanova Pop Culture Expo began in 2000 under a different name, with a lot less time and a lot less people. Now it’s a place where over 600,000 people get together to […]


  • ConCarolinas 2014: A Rousing Success!

    This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend ConCarolinas at the Hilton University Place in Charlotte, North Carolina. Of course the most exciting thing about this year’s ConCarolinas was the fact that their guest of honor was none other than George R. R. Martin, the author of the Song of Ice & Fire series […]



  • 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 […]


  • Howling for Howlercon

    Those Teen Wolf fans on the east that have been prevented from attending previous events (like BiteCon) finally have their chance at Howler Con. Howler Con a New Jersey based fan convention that will be held November 14-16th, 2014 at The Hilton Newark Airport. It is a joint collaboration between Fandom, Give Back! and Tyler Hoechlin Online.
