Wizard World Philadelphia Shotcast!

June 26, 2011

Con 101 from the Cuban: Remember the tickets before you leave the house. That way you don’t have to double back later.

Uncle Cuban got to take his two 9-year old nieces to stretch their comics pedigree at their first con.

Every con is its own animal

Name Dropping:

  • Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Army of Darkness, Burn Notice)
  • Adam Baldwin (Chuck, FireFly, Independence Day & My Body Guard ???)
  • Adam West & Burt Ward & Batmobile
  • Delorian from Back to the future

The Con as an educational tool

Con 101 from the Cuban: Get to Artist Alley first. Those guys get slammed with requests early.

Be courteous to the artists, even if you don’t like this story or that cover.

Smurfologist Matt Murphy at the con (Smurfs are 53 years old!!!)

*** X’s note - Glenn admits to being a closet Smurf lover. I was more of a Snorks guy myself. Hey does any remember what the Ga-Nuffs? ***
Smurf creator Peyo pulled a George Lucas and snagged the licensing rights to his creation before they hit.

Wizard World is a good way to get acclimated to con culture. Sort of a con with training wheels if you will.

The girls said they couldn’t stay for the Zombie beach party because they didn’t have their zombie costumes … God Love ‘Em!

Got an idea for a Shotcast! of your own? Let me know and we will see about getting you on the air.
