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.

This has been a fabulous week so far. Not only am I writing this on vacation (Anthony told me I had to or he was going to slash my salary in half. What’s half of zero?) but all the news out from SDCC has been great news for the comic book industry.

Five Ghosts is one of my favorite books. I have had a chance to meet Frank Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham a couple of times. Even had a signing event for readers way back in the day (still have some copies left over.) Frank is genuinely a nice guy, and if you are at SDCC this year you should stop by the booth. Frank is such a nice guy he often stops by the CGC message boards and drops nuggets of goodness.
