Greetings CHU! Our Superbowl took place last weekend in San Diego with every major comic publisher under one roof plus movie and TV studios, here is one person’s ground view of the event. I know you all heard the Phase 4 news and probably gobbled up all those keys by now! Check out some of my “not Hall H” experiences… Continue reading “SDCC 2019 Wrap Up – Louie M’s Adventures”

Cosplayers are one of the best parts of attending any comic convention. They were not around conventions when I was a kid, and it’s a blessing to have them today. They bring our favorite characters to life. Check out the Cosplay that was on display in San Diego! Continue reading “San Diego Comic Con 2018 Cosplay Gallery”
San Diego Comic Con, the Nerd Superbowl, started on July 18th. This was definitely a transition year for SDCC. Almost everything is a lottery now. On one hand, it’s an even playing field. On another hand, those who are more vigilant and willing to work harder don’t get an advantage. Depends on your definition of fairness. Attendees could sign up in what’s called an “Exclusives Portal” for lotteries to all major signings and exclusive booths. I entered for almost everything in every time slot. I won nothing. Squat. So we can say I wasn’t a big fan this year. My main request of SDCC is to only allow each winning attendee to win only once, since some people won multiples while some won nothing.

Phoenix Comic Fest (formerly Phoenix Comicon) took place over the Memorial Day weekend. 2017 was a rough year for the event: staffing issues, near shooting incident, and taking on SDCC over the use of ‘comic con’ name. That’s all in the past now and they have revamped the con for 2018 in many ways. Now wristbands are mailed in advance, far more security checkpoints/entrances, and a slew of minor improvements throughout the convention center. Continue reading “Phoenix Comic Fest 2018 Wrap Up”

The gist of the story now is seeing the year over year improvement. The show is better run than ever, and attendees can ensure a great time if they attend an Amazing show.
