MOPA Special Report: VisionCon 2013

I recently had the chance to go to VisionCon, a sci-fi, comic, I and gaming convention, held right here in my city. It was my first con and it did noy disappoint. There were so many things to see and do that I almost forgot to put anything together for the site!

But despite all the distractions I did manage to interview 3 awesome folks, while fighting the age old battle of Man Vs. Hangover.

My first interview was with artist Gerry Kissell, who’s photo realistic artwork can be seen in IDW’s Operation: Geronimo and on his site www.gerrykissell.com

Next I had the opportunity to talk with author John Hornor Jacobs, known for his works Southern Gods, This Dark Earth, and The Twelve Fingered Boy. To check out more of his works go to his site here, like him on Facebook, or find him on Amazon.

Last, but certainly not least, I spoke with Amanda Roberts of Geek Details. She specializes in geek inspired pinbacks, altered dishes, and other geektastic fare. To find more of her wares check out GeekDetails.com, or find them on Etsy.

Some other highlights of VisionCon were:

The amazing comedy styling of Mikey Mason.

Delver’s Drop, a Zelda-type adventure game, coming to a tablet near you from Pixelscopic.

And the “heart melting” moment of the con came when members of Garrison 66 presented our friend Gypsy with her very own set of Mandolorian armor!

A grand time was had by all, and my thanks go to my guests, Garrison 66, and all the hard working people who made VisionCon an event to remember.

Back In The Saddle Again!!!!

After so many trials and tribulations, the podcast is finally back! I’m happy to be back in front of the mic, and I’ll make every effort to make 2013 a banner year forĀ My Own Private Alderaan.
