Get Ready for Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con June 17-19

I love Las Vegas, and I love going to cons.  Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con is the sweet spot.  ALVCC was my favorite event of 2015, and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever before!  Don’t believe me?  I have proof—ALVCC has outgrown its home at the South Point and will be taking over the Las Vegas Convention Center June 17-19.

This year’s special guests include Deadpool creator Rob Liefield, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle creator Kevin Eastman, Marvel legend Chris Claremont, and Civil War artist Steve McNiven.  VIP ticket packages range from $150-200 and are on sale now but will sell out quickly.

General admission tickets went on sale today.  The full three-day package is only $60, making it one of the best deals out there.

With great panels, awesome special guests, a huge artist alley and cosplay galore, Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con needs to be on your calendar this June.

On the Edge of the Desert: The Road to Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con

Well, the ol’ bus is making its way toward Las Vegas.  We’re due to arrive in just over five hours now, and so far I’ve managed to read half of a book.

I’m looking forward to checking in at the South Point and getting a lay of the land before the show opens tomorrow.  I’m also hoping to be able to write two book reviews before I go to sleep tonight…we’ll see…

Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con: Pre-Trip

I’m getting ready to leave for Las Vegas.  This trip to Amazing Comic Con in Las Vegas promises to be absolutely, well, amazing.

Oh, and it’s 110 in Vegas this weekend. The weather app has a burning match to drive that point home, in case the number wasn’t enough…. (I’m sitting in the cool San Diego coastal breeze as I write this, pondering my sanity to undertake such a journey under such extreme conditions, but it’s worth it. I have a press pass!)

This is going to be an epic adventure. I am covering the event for a variety of websites and I’ll be sure to post links here so you can see them. I’ll also have lots of original content here as well.

Oh…and there’s one other thing… I’m really serious about an epic adventure.  I’m taking a Greyhound bus.  This was a much better alternative to driving solo, and the bus has free wi-fi and power outlets, so you can expect full coverage along the seven hour journey.

I mean that. Full. Coverage.

As in Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas full coverage.

“But our trip was different.  It was a classic affirmation of everything right and true and decent in the national character.  It was a gross, physical salute to the fantastic possibilities of life in this country–but only for those with true grit. And [I am] chock full of that.”

To be continued….

Let the journey begin!
