Mighty Cast 16: Convention Season HO!

2016-03-09 22:40:23

This weeks episode gives us a quick review of the first shows of convention season, plus a look at some of the comic book and pop culture conventions we’ve got coming up.

First up is a review of Wizard World Cleveland, which took place from 2/26 through 2/28 in Cleveland, Ohio. Like many of the Wizard shows of late, is was big and it was decent, but it wasn’t really a comic con, and this shift away from the comic world is getting to be an issue for fans who aren’t going to shows looking for things like window replacement or new pet squirrels.

Coming up is the Mighty Con Madison show, and of course C2E2, one of the biggest shows in the world. This is a much welcome relief from shows that forget their comic book roots, and gives fans a real super hero of an experience.

The new Quad Cities Comic Con gets mentioned, and fans of the podcast are hearing it here first.  The QCCC is happening on June 4th and 5th, at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport, Iowa.  Look for this to be one of the biggest shows that Mighty Con has put on, with a huge selection of vendors, artists, and guests.

Plenty of new comics coming out this week, and Paul and Bill give a quick run down on what’s new, what’s good, and what to look forward to. Plus a quick look at the TV shows and movies that comic fans should be catching up on, and that rounds out this weeks podcast.  Thanks for listening, and as always don’t forget to let us know what you think on our Facebook pag
