Everything But Imaginary #471: Shopping at the Con

This year’s Wizard World New Orleans was held at the beginning of December… not the optimal time, perhaps, but it did allow something that I’ve never done before. At this year’s convention, I did some Christmas shopping. Here’s how to do it…

It’s the second Wizard World New Orleans convention for 2012! Why? Blake and Kenny try to solve the mystery. The boys also talk convention shopping, cosplaying, Star Trek panel mayhem and close encounters in the Men’s Room. In the picks, Blake is reasonably impressed with Indestructible Hulk #1.

Everything But Imaginary #469: Care For the Cosplayers

The great artist Tony Harris went oddly off the rails yesterday, launching an online rant against cosplayers, those jolly types who go to a comic convention dressed as their favorite characters. And there’s one major question that one has to ask about something like this…

“The hell?”

Everything But Imaginary #436: Has Ghost Rider Burned the Independent Artist?

The case of Gary Friedrich Vs. Marvel Comics has taken some interesting turns this week, one of which has left some artists concerned about their ability to participate in a custom as old as comic conventions themselves. This week in Everything But Imaginary, I ask the question: Has Ghost Rider burned the Independent Artist?

Writer John Layman talks about the hit book Chew and his upcoming work on Mars Attacks, arist Joe Eisma gives a tease about Morning Glories, artist Nick Pittara talks about creating The Red Wing and the upcoming Manhattan Project, and writer Brandon Seifert tells us what Witch Doctor has to look forward to in 2012!

Gearing up for Wizard World…

The second annual Wizard World New Orleans convention is this weekend, and I’m well and truly psyched. I don’t get to go to nearly enough cons for my taste, so Wizard plunking one down in my backyard was a great little burst of news (mitigated somewhat by the news that it was essentially supplanting the wonderful local convention, the NOLA Comic-Con, which I miss already).

But as is often the case when I’m about to have a big geek event, the pop culture centers of my brain have been wholly devoted to this event for the last several days. I’ve still been writing, but I’ve spent most of the rest of my downtime thinking about what I want to do when I get there, who I hope I get to meet with, and how to try to make a few connections in the writing world.

If you plan on attending, say hi! I’m planning to attend both days, and I should have Mike and Kenny from the 2 in 1 Showcase podcast with me for at least the Saturday. I’ll be the one wandering the floor with my iPod, trying to record interviews with various pros for my podcast.

And in the meantime, here’s the thought process that went into my preparing for this year’s convention, courtesy of CXPulp.com and Everything But Imaginary…
