I’ve been sitting on my thoughts about WonderCon 2016 for a bit now because I was bitter about being there alone this year… but that wasn’t WonderCon’s fault. So I’ve decided to draft my thoughts and just move on.
Trekked south this past weekend for the annual WonderCon event in Anaheim. The con continues to be a wonderful midsize event that draws a great crowd of awesome nerds. It’s certainly a smaller event than the summer shindig that is SDCC but that works in several ways- easier to breath without quite so many people, it’s easier to get in to events and panels, and without the major studios cramming the exhibit hall it gives fans a chance to actually chat with creators.

The con season is off to a brilliant start and NerdLush spent this Easter weekend in sunny Anaheim wandering the halls of WonderCon for the third year. Three significant differences from the prior years- a) rather than just going for Sunday, we went for all 3 days, b) rather than being only at the hall and otherwise being at home- we had a hotel room, and c) instead of just being fans, press, or otherwise wandering around innocently, I had been asked to be part of a panel on “The Psychology of Cult TV”.

Admittedly, it’s been a while since this video was filmed at Long Beach Comic-con last fall, but it’s never too late to share it and learn a little from an amazing comic artist and NerdLush friend.

I met Steve a few years ago at Wizard World New Orleans, and for some reason our insanities clicked and we’ve been friends. Always a pleasure to see his work. Continue reading
In the not-too-distant future, I am going to set up an interview with Lloyd Kaufman. If you don’t know who that is, you should probably cancel your nerd subscription. In any case, I recently met him
and have since had some awesome moments in Twitter conversations. So… I will pursue the opportunity to interview Mr. Kaufman. For this site and perhaps AFC.
So… my question is this- what would you ask him? The best questions will be used.
