If you’re a warm blooded human and have been out in public, then you’ve most likely heard that wildly popular and award winning song from the movie Frozen. Yeah, you know the one I’m talking about. The one that has gotten so far wedged into your head that brain trauma is the only remedy. […]
Last fall’s very first Salt Lake City Con drew what is claimed to be 80,000 people, although when I first reported on it it was 50,000 tickets sold,—and the fire marshals came outin force. With that kind of smash, they are holding another one already, nicknamed FanX. And this time they are expecting an even huger crowd. :
Hawthorne High School in New Jersey has been throwing a comic con for seven years, and thanks to the help of art teacher Alan Rosenberg’s great contacts, they always have a stellar line-up of great cartoonists. This year’s show, to be held May 10th, will be a Tribute to Joe Kubert, and I’m guessing it will be one of those small intimate shows that so many folks enjoy. Guests include Walt Simonson, Herb Trimpe, Joe Staton and more.
Another report of a bunch of youtube perverts harassing cosplayers while posing as a legitimate camera crew news outlet has emerged from London Super Comic Con, as reported by a cosplayer known as Lady Noctis.

And now that the majority of badges have been sold, […]

You could only buy single day passes […]
With seemingly everyone putting on a comic-con, as business booms and it seems like easy money, we’re finding more and more people who bit off perhaps a bit more than they could chew, and/or got into things for the wrong reason. The alleged Kickstarter embezzlement at River Con, the co-founder squabbles at Denver Comic Con, […]
Well, this is not really hotel-o-ween. It is a nice, orderly, adult process known as the Comic-Con International early bird hotel sale. Basically if you don’t mind a brief 15-20 shuttle ride and paying the whole amount upfront, you can book a perfectly nice hotel room in Mission Valley or Hotel Circle RIGHT NOW.
Another 20 guests have been announced for this year’s San Diego Comic-Con and they are:
UPDATE: Convention director Christina Angel has released her own statement on FB. The he said-she said of the Denver Comic Con-troversy just got ratcheted up a notch as the Con board has released a statement refuted the charges made by co-founder Charlie La Greca earlier today.
