Wizard World Texas - Chewie, Lone Star Comics, & Bizarro Me
Topic: Wizard World Texas
If you find that you'd rather kiss a wookie this weekend, Wizard World Texas is the place to be! Peter Mayhew, the man beneath all that spectacular fur as Chewbacca in the Star Wars films will be signing autographs at the show. Mroooowwr!
In the comments of Monday's blog, General Manager Chris Powell over at Lone Star Comics & Science Fiction wrote to my concerns about the reported record number of exhibitors at this coming weekend's Wizard World Texas. I had pointed out some notable vendors missing from the retailer and exhibtor list - including Lone Star Comics. Chris put my mind at ease:
"I'm pleased to say that Lone Star will be there. Wizard has had a lot of turnover in their conventions department in the last couple of months, and they haven't posted a full list of exhibitors..."
This is awfully reassuring to me. I've got cash in my pockets ready to buy funny books and all manner of things that I-simply-must-have-but-didn't-know-I-needed. I gotta have guys there to sell me t'ings, tho. Glad to learn that the site simply hasn't been updated. Thanks, Chris. I can sleep again!
Confirmed guest Stuart Sayger reports that he will not be in attendance at WWTX.
But that's okay, because the Space Gun Studios kru will be knocking out some badass pages at the Heroes 4 Heroes Live Art Charity Auction. These guys are great. I've met Vinh-Luan Luu a couple of times. He has a delightfully noirish style to much of his work. I am a HUGE fan of Jake Ekiss' stuff. In fact, Jake teased me earlier this week:
"Hey there Aron be sure to find me at the con; I'll have something for you (ooh, cryptic...)."
Please be a puppy, please be a puppy...!
By the way, I just realized that I got the date wrong for the H4H Live Art Show. It is Saturday night. Not Friday night as reported earlier. Me am smart. Sometimes Bizarro Aron writes the blog...
By the way, the Heroes Initiative is looking for volunteers:
The Hero Initiative is looking for volunteers to work the booth at Wizard World Texas from November 7-9.
What you get for your time:
- You get into the convention for free - all we ask is about four hours a day.
- You get to meet comics creators up-close and personal. In the past we have had Adam Kubert, George Perez, Ed Brubaker, Terry Moore & J.G. Jones.
- And you get to pimp, pimp, pimp for a good cause.
If you are interested in volunteering one, two or all three days, contact Bob Moser at email@example.com.
Tomorrow, I will be posting my picks for the cool panels and things to do at the con... can't wait!
