Hey guys, so today was a very special day. FREE COMIC DAY! I ended up getting plenty of free swag and comics and had a pretty neato day. The highlights of the previews and one shots I got my hands on today had to have been the Superman, The Walking Dead and the Judge Dredd comic. Others did stand out like the Star Wars freebie and the Batman freebie. But what was one of the cooler moments of the day was when The Southern Maryland Superheros showed up. I had got pics of Spidey and Batman. Ironman was late and I didn’t get a chance to see him but the other guys were wicked cool.
I also picked up Superior Spiderman #9 and Red Sonja Unchained #2. Stay tuned for a review of the new Red Sonja line later on tonight or tomorrow! Good night Nerdcore Nation!
Hey there my dear Nerdcore Nation! I’ve been mulling over the events of this past saturday since saturday! So much happened! Talked to so many people! Shook so many babies and kissed so many hands! Scratch that…reverse it… I didn’t actually kiss any babies though. There were a pair of Wolverine twins running around using Wolverines Berkserker Strike which was so cute to watch. Two lil wolvies flailing around with adamantine claws. Just so cute. There were THE CROSSED there. Thankfully no one was eaten or had anything else done with them. There were also two vary lovely gals done up as the Mario Brothers. Mustache and All. However at the end of this you will find the male and female Cosplay Of The Con, so stay tuned after you finish my lil blog here.
This is technically my second Con but the first was kinda rinkydink and there wasn’t a whole lot to do however I did meet some Storm Troopers (which made my life.) This was insane in comparison! There were so many more people there to begin with. Roughly 1200 people through the day, mabey more! So many vendors and artists and game makers it made my head spin! But coming here was no free ride for your friendly neighborhood boneman, me, Mr. Jimi Bones. No sir not at all. I was there working with the awesome guys at CrashGem!
During most of the day, I spent ALOT of time out on the floor with about one hundred CrashGem business cards. My mission, to hand them out, talk to people and drum up sales for the guys. Mission Accepted. Mission Accomplished! I handed out all one hundred in a matter of hours, shook so many hands my wrist was hurting and talked to so many people and other assorted creatures that I felt like I was going to loose my voice! This honestly made my Con. I love talking to people. I love walking up to strangers, striking up a conversation and walking away knowing one more awesome person in the world. I met quite an array of characters there (both in and out of costume) that I was rolling with sheer enjoyment of the whole thing. In my midday work I also help tend the booth and help take a bit more workload off the fellows there by helping with sales and packaging. They made a decent little chunk that day and I hope that some of it was because of me. (but we all know a good amount was.) I also help introduce them to this one game maker who has just a pure geneious game oozing from his pores that it solidified into something of pure epic and win. His game is a mix of Chess, Magic the Gathering, and Dungeons and Dragons d20 system. Also for bonus epic points, his business card is an actual playing card in the game. Now if that isn’t awesome, I just don’t know what is.
At the end of the day, alot of things went down along with the sun and all in all it was very bitter sweet. I enjoyed myself so much I just did not want it to end in the slightest. But we all know that good things always come to an end eventually. So the next best thing is heading to the next con I can find and hopefully I’ll get a chance to work with the guys from CrashGem again. With that note I am more then willing to be your freelance greeter, your spokesman, your voice among the citizens among the vendor booths. I will not be unseen, I will be the hero you need. I will do this because I have to. I can take it. Honestly I enjoy it way to much! haha. So with that closing I bid you all good night for now. I have some comics to read for this week, some news to look up for you and a few more interviews to try to arrange! So my dear Nerdcore Nation you will find videos of the con on Youtube.com/user/nerdcorecomicsandmor and pics at facebook.com/pages/Nerdcore-Nation. So that’s some other news! we have a youtube and a facebook page to like! So go my friends! GO! Spread the word!
