Greggo Appearances 2017
Greg Wicker, known to his fans simply as Greggo, has been prolifically hosting spoof game shows at conventions, since 1999. First inspired by an underwhelming jeopardy host at A-Kon, Greggo knew he could do it better, did, and has never stopped developing his technique, technology, and games offered. Aside from his natural skill, ability, and dedication, Greggo attributes much of his breakthrough success to his father’s career at Delta Airlines, which enabled him to travel quickly and cheaply to conventions around the states, and the strong bonds he made with conference organizers in his early years....

William Shatner Appearances 2017
William Shatner has been part of the stage, television, and film industry for over seven decades. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Shatner first trained as a Shakespearean actor before receiving his first film role as a crook in Butler’s night off in 1951. It was not until 15 years later that Shatner would receive his iconic role as Captain James T. Kirk, and be forever thrust into pop-culture history.

For almost a decade after the end of Star Trek, William Shatner found himself typecast, jobless, and homeless. Through his perseverance and will Shatner rebuilt his career, proved that he was a far more capable actor than believed by taking any role that was available, all while supporting his family....

Stan Lee's Final Appearances 2017
Since Stan Lee Stepped out of his home drawing room in 1939 and became an assistant at Timely Comics, he has forever changed the comic book universe, just like his masked creations. After 78 years of arduous work that inspires generations and over 25 appearances and cameos, made with Asgardian endurance, it has surfaced, that after falling ill and missing Big Apple Comic Con and Salt Lakes’ FanX in March, this may be Mr. Lee’s last year appearing on the Comic-Con Circuit! It is sad news to be sure, but if this is Stan’s last year we hope that everyone will have a chance to meet and thank him, personally, at one of the Stan Lee autograph signings in 2017.... Read More

Message Board For Vendors

Message Board For Vendors
As a seller, whether you are relatively new, or a rugged veteran, it can be tricky to know and understand the needs and demands of an event. Events are vastly different when it comes to atmosphere, the number of attendees, style, size, and more. It is often hard to estimate expected sales at a venue or event. While some events are sales-focused, others are not, so it proves useful to communicate with other booth holders, who have attended the event, before you arrive. With the experience, knowledge, and advice, of previous attendees, you can strategize how to increase foot traffic, and sale, at your booth. This forum is for exactly that purpose.... Read More
Cons always get all kinds of exclusive content and merchandise. They get first dibs on the best stuff, so if you don’t attend, there goes your best chance at getting the one of a kind items that get sold at the conventions. If you don’t go, you miss the opportunity, then the only way to get most of this stuff is to pray that someone sells it on ebay or something like that – and if that happens, you could be paying an insane price for them. If you’re looking to get some exclusive items, you’re going to need to attend the conventions to get them.... Read More

Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo
This October 28th, Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo is opening up shop at the Los Angeles Convention Center in LA. Comikaze is a legendary event as far as cons go, and with the man himself, Stan Lee, getting up there in years and limiting his public appearances, this year’s Comikaze is going to be extra special.

If you’re not familiar with Stan Lee, he’s the guy who created the X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man and Spider-Man. He’s often called the grandfather of modern comics, and he’s the most recognizable name and face in the entire industry.... Read More
