When I first started this site I had a goal of being able to support local cosplayers as much as I could no matter their kill level or popularity.
I very briefly met cosplayer lulukohime at Phoenix Comicon a few months ago in her version of Captain America which was very well done. This is another chance to support a local cosplayer who you can see at the end of the month at Saboten Con.

Yes, we still have MONTHS until Phoenix Comicon and a bunch of awesome conventions before then but just wanted to make sure that people who plan early knew the dates for the 2015 of Phxcc. Those dates are May 28-31, just a few days after Memorial Day.
I’ll keep you updated on when the hotels go on sale for the con so make sure to bookmark the site or follow along on Twitter!

Another panel that I did not attend but my wife did was the Supernatural “Conversation for a Cause” panel at Nerd HQ. Don’t really know what was talked about but all I know is my wife really enjoyed :D
Here are some of the photos from the event
My time at Comic Con on the Saturday of the event was pretty much devoted to the behemoth known as Hall H. I got in for the room Friday night at 7p, made some line buddies and got into Hall H Saturday at 9:45a, about 15 minutes before the first panel of the day started.
You can find a million recaps and even videos of the panels held that day so I won’t really go into because I don’t have anything really extra to add to it but it was a blast. Saw a ton of celebrities and previews for new films with the highlight being The Avengers: Age of Ultron cast along with the first teaser for it (which by the way was AMAZING).
I also got the chance to say hi to my pals over at GB Reviews during one of the many intermissions. If you get the chance to go into Hall H on Saturday of Comic Con, do it atleast once, the every and excitement is pure hysteria. The crowd reaction with all of the chanting and applauding even BEFORE the Marvel panel started was so memorable.
Enjoy all the photos!

If you missed the recap for Thursday of Comic Con, you can read it here.
Friday was by far the oddest day of Comic Con I have ever had because I seemed to be there only a couple of hours but saw more famous people than I ever have outside of the convention center. The reason for that was I had a few too many strong drinks the night/morning before and I had ZERO desire to get up early. I swung by Babycakes San Diego for breakfast and a few treats before heading to the convention center.
Once inside I went straight to the small press table of Val Hochberg who is a local Arizona artist who I saw hi to at every convention! During Phoenix Comic Con, I told her and her husband Scott I would bring them some of the best cupcakes San Diego has to offer in which I did. Purchased a few cool prints from her and then we all took a selfie.
Walked around the convention center a little longer where I ran into Emilie Bada-BOOM in her Rocket Raccoon costume! You can check out her interview we did last month here.
We decided to leave because we still needed to check into or second hotel and I wanted to get ready to camp overnight for Hall H. We parked at the Hilton Bayfront and decided to do some celebrity watching where we hit gold. We saw Ron Perlman, the cast of Falling Skies, Channing Tatum, and the cast of The Walking Dead (who when they arrived immediately went over to the fans and took pictures, signed autographs and shook hands, really awesome to see). A few of the pictures look funny because I just recorded with camera took stills from the video.
Once back to the convention center, my wife headed over to Nerd HQ for the mystery guests panel. The panel featured a whole slew of guests including Colin Ferguson, Kal Penn and Nathan Fillion.
Here are more random photos from Friday at Comic Con
Hey everyone! I’m back in always sunny Arizona and ready to recap my sixth year at San Diego Comic Con. I rolled into San Diego Wednesday afternoon and went straight to the beach. Did some other things Wednesday night and then Thursday morning rolled around. Got down to the convention center around 4:15am and only had one thing on my agenda, get into the 24 panel.
Well, mission accomplished! I made it into the 4th tent outside of Ballroom 20 which got me into the first 10 rows of the room when it was time to move from the tents to the inside. Kiefer Sutherland talk about shooting 24 in London, returning to the iconic character Jack Bauer, voicing Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid, and dinner with his father Donald Sutherland.
After the panel, I made my first appearance on the exhibit floor where I got an autograph from legendary comic artist Neal Adams and then checked out the Batman costume exhibit at the DC booth.
It was time to hit the Hilton Bayfront hotel which is home to the Indigo Ballroom. I got there just in time for the Sony Pictures panel which featured a video from Chris Columbus about his new Adam Sandler movie, Pixels. Next on the panel was director Rob Letterman and actor Jack Black for the movie adaptation of Goosebumps. Movie looked really corny even with the unfinished special effects.
Comedy Central was up next with a Key&Peele panel moderated by Tom Lennon. I’m a fan of the show so this was a pretty entertaining panel for me. After Key&Peele, it was a preview of the new Comedy Central show, Moonbeam City, which is voiced by Rob Lowe, Elizabeth Banks, and Will Forte. Rob Lowe was suppose to be on the panel but wasn’t so a lot of people left the panel, including me.
That wrapped up my panel adventure for Thursday so I spent some more time on the exhibit floor. I ran across Todd McFarlane who was just hanging out with a few fans and talking sports so I took a “selfie” with him. Continued on my adventure of the exhibit floor which netted me a free sketch from Rob Liefeld! He asked me what character and I went with Domino, who doesn’t get enough love. I got to watch him sketch it and it turned out awesome.
That was just about my Thursday at Comic Con, here are more random photos from that day, enjoy!
