Andy got to sit down with writer/artist Tim Seeley at C2E2, and pick his brain about his ongoing Bloodshot series, as well as the long-gestating Revival film (sorry folks, it’s still gestating!)…

In this week’s episode, my fine and faithful friends, we’ll examine the delightful art of autograph-seeking at the con. Whether it’s that one celebrity you need to complete your Serenity cast poster (looking at you—eventually—Morena Baccarin!), your fave artist in the Alley, or maybe even those Critical Role cats for your first-edition DMG, signings are a major feature of most larger cons. Now you’d think there really shouldn’t ought to be a ton of planning or strategy involved here: stand in line, enjoy the 7.8 seconds of contact, re-bag book, rinse, repeat—but, oh, my lovely little neophytes, you’d be so, so wrong.
If you’re like me, one of the great appeals of the con is the opportunity to shop the vendor floors and exhibit halls. Among so many other glorious things, a comicon (or gaming con, or sportscard convention) is a unique opportunity to shop among a huge variety of collectibles vendors on the same show floor, which often presents the chance to find that special item, that one variant issue or mint-on-card figure that’s eluded you as you’ve scoured the comic shops and toy stores of your home town. And, it’s a chance to find some serious bargains.
This week, in our last (until I think of something else to say about cons, and given I’ve already written over 6800 words on the subject, I’m thinking that may be awhile) episode of The Official Ultimate Pullbox Guide to Conning, we’ll take a look at a rather timely topic (as I know many of you are starting to stake out your digs for C2E2): finding good deals on lodging.
Episode 1 Episode 2 Episode 3 Welcome back, ladies and gentlemen! In this week’s episode, my fine feathered friends, we’ll examine the delightful art of autograph-seeking at the con.

Well, that’s another Con in the can, and I’ve got some thoughts… First of all, the ‘Box’s co-founder Eric was my wingman this year, and we both had a pretty good time taking in the sights and meeting awesome people. In overview, Wizard World is a smaller convention than C2E2, but before the critics start […]
So, after spending the whole day yesterday (Friday) wandering around- mainly in Artist Alley where I could easily spend the whole weekend- I figured I’d put out some love for this great event. I’ll lead by pointing out that I’m only able to make it for one day this year. Rather than being all surly […]
This weekend, 02-16-2019, I was fortunate enough to have some time to kill and cash to spend. To take advantage of these fortunate circumstances, I set out to the Wisconsin State Fair grounds to attend Mighty Con Milwaukee. Lemme tell ya, it was time well spent. The cash… well, we’ll see about that. For now, […]
