My geek adventures in the valley of the sun.

I'm 28, married and have a child that is 1yr old that will have some cool ass stuff to do when he gets a little older.

Movies, video games, comics, whatever else I deem geeky is what I am into.

Tucson Comic Con 2014 update

Tucson Comic Con 2014 update

20140713-103607-38167850.jpg

We are about two months out from Tucson Comic Con and wanted to put together all that has been announced so far for the readers who are interested in attending. Just a quick note, Tucson Comic Con will probably be one of the least expensive cons you will attend. $15 for the weekend, $10 for one day. I’ll gladly pay that price any day. You can’t get your tickets online (yet) but should be able to…

We are still about a month out from the next convention in Arizona which is Comic & Media Expo but the con news has slowed down a bit since the summer is wrapping up so I decided to create some content to fill that void!

What if Legion of Sand had its own comic convention, who would we ask to appear at the convention? This is just a few of the names in the first post of three.

We interview lulukohime about cosplay!

IMG_5538.JPG

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.

If you…

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!
