Convention Tales: Motor City Comic Con Fall 2005

Motor City Comic Con weekend started with the idea of 'finding' the new convention center.  They moved from the Novi Expo Center, where they had been since I started going to this convention in 1997, to the "Rock Financial Showplace".  We got there an hour early, and parked right outside the main entrance.  We went and bought our tickets. Now it use to be once you got there you got into the long line and waited until they opened to be able to buy your tickets, but with the new set up the line is inside and you can buy your ticket before getting in line.  Which was really cool.   My mom and I bought got the two day pass which was only $20, then got into the line for the people who just bought their tickets today.

Michigan Action Figure Expo!

I have been going to conventions since I was a little kid. So it’s not uncommon to see me wandering the halls of a convention decked head to toe in Ninja Turtles.  Some conventions have become use to me being there yearly, while others I show up at for only the names upon the guest list.  I have worked in all sorts of different areas for conventions from dealer rooms to running panels to even Convention Operations.

Tales of TMNT Guests #1

Throughout my years as a Ninja Turtle fan, one thing has always been so amazing that it’s kept me in this fandom and making memories that I’ll never forget and making new friends, whom I hope will be friends for a very long time.  These are some of my stories of meeting the people behind the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Review: Redford Theatre

Detroit, Michigan has been a very hard-up town for a long time now.  Many people do not want to go there for really good reasons, with a high crime rate, police taking hours to respond, low income, and an overall hard-up feeling to the city with businesses closing down and unemployment going up. What type of business could be worth going into this city?  Well there are some big places that have managed to keep going downtown, it’s nice when you can find that diamond in the rough that is surviving these hard times.

 

Review: New York City Comic Con 2011

New York City Comic Con is a convention worthy of having returning fans and booths.  With a great lay out, fun panels, and a nice size crowd, guests for all sorts of people, games for young and older fans and tons of comic booths and artist for everyone to enjoy, this is not an event that disappoints the attendees.  Every year they try to make it bigger and better, with goals to become as big as San Diego Comic Con. Though, personally, I’d be happy if it stays at the size the convention is at right now.

Review Detroit FanFare 2011

Detroit FanFare, the new show in town, is trying to become as big as Motor City Comic Con fast.  This show did great last year with Stan Lee as their guest of honor so they figured they’d pull in the same type of crowd this year without Stan Lee and jumped into Cobo Hall in Downtown Detroit.  The plan was flawed as the guest list did not include Stan Lee and the event was not free to the public like it was last year.  Though the event was a blast for EVERY attendee that came to the convention.

San D Comic Con International 2011 Review

Comic Con International is one of the largest Conventions in the United States and is held every year in San Diego, CA.  This event holds panels for movies, tv shows, comics, toys and so much more. Truly a world wide event for entertainment which brings in people from all around  trying to meet the stars, get autographs or buy that rare comic con exclusive toy.  Comic Con International 2011 went strong and Cowabunga Corner was there to cover it.

"Mutation in Progress" TMNT 2012 Comic Con Event Review

The crowd was thick around a small pizza place in San Diego today, as fans of the TMNT gathered for the Nickelodeon's "Mutation in Progress" event.  The pizza place had large images of the Turtles over all the windows, so no one could see inside.  Images of the new CGI show, for everyone outside as the sidewalk had Ninjas all over the place.
