I’m happy to report that I’ll be attending several cons this year to provide coverage for Dark Media Online. My press badges have been approved and I’m ready to go. (I even have a photographer, aka my trusty sister who is a photographic genius)
This weekend is the Long Beach Comic Expo. This is the sister event to the Long Beach Comic Con in September, and while the focus is on comics, there is already a ton of cosplay planned, along with panels and screenings.
In April I’ll be heading up the 5 to Anaheim to cover the Star Wars Celebration. I’m really excited about this event, even though Jawas terrified me when I was younger. (Don’t tell anyone, but they still do) I can only imagine how great the event will be this year with the new film set for release. Mark Hamill has been confirmed as a guest, as are the actors behind C3PO and R2D2. It’s going to be phenomenal.
And now that my press badge for San Diego Comic Con has just been approved, so you can expect to see tons of coverage both here and at DarkMediaOnline.com. We should be podcasting by that point as well, so watch for updates. SDCC means a long (15-minute drive) Downtown for me, so you can be assured of tons of pre-convention coverage as the signage goes up and the Exhibit Hall takes shape. It’s also fun to wander the Gaslamp to see what is moving in for SDCC. (Remember the Godzilla building? We drove by last week and the Legendary art is still inside)
Lots of good things to come in the next few weeks/months, so stay tuned!
