    Default Calgary Comic Con 2014 thread

    It's that time of year for us geeks Con officially starts today at 1600 hours.

    I have a new camera, so I do hope to take lots of pictures of the con and try to provide a totally unsolicited mini blog. Otherwise, I do know LOTS of other Beyonders will be there (openly geek or not :P), so this is just a thread to keep all the news, posts, etc, all in one place

    Well, the full name of the event is The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Exposition.

    The Comic portion is where I live, ie the bins upon bins of comics to dig through, creators to comission/talk to/sign books, and the local talent that deserve a perusal, because who knows, one day they may be star creators.

    The Entertainment portion, however, is where all the film/tv/voice acting stars belong (ie Sons of Anarchy), and, like San Diego Comic Con, that part of the con is growing year over year in popularity. It was truly kicked into high gear when the Con started doing full cast reunions, starting with Star Trek TNG. This year it's the entire cast of Aliens.

    In San Diego, it's now to the point that it's almost all about the film industry with a little bit of comic stuff left. Calgary is about 50/50 at the moment, and I hope they keep that balance

    Worst mistake ever.

    Chances of her finding a better dude is way greater than you finding a better girl at a Comic Con.

    As someone who collects comics (silver-age Marvel), I can't stand how ComicCon event are now just more about celebrity autographs, toys, games and other random pop culture.

    Kind of how I felt about going to ComicCon New York. Of course, I'm a video game nerd, not really a comic book one, so it works out well for me.

    Really, it should be renamed something more like popCon. Of course, most of the stuff isn't really "pop" culture, it typically is stuff that is much more niche. Maybe nerdcon then haha.

    Really, PAX is for the video game nerd crowd anyways. I knew ComicCon had lost its way when the adventure time stand was freaking huge.

    Some of those nerdy girls are super cute and you already know they have cool hobbies. But only some.

    Who's on top of your list?

    Cyanide + Happiness, J Scott Campbell, Fiona Staples, Max Brooks and RL Stine are on my wish list.

    Saturday and Sunday are both sold out, Friday looks like your only option.

    Expect geekery. If you can geek out about it, it's here expect crowds, stuff to buy, lineups, and other fun things. Honestly, it's hard to describe
