The never ending convention seasons rolls on with Winter Con 2015 which is mostly a SF/cosplay show with some comics guests including Neal Adams, James O’Barr, Billy Tucci etc. SF guest include Nichelle Nichols, Jeremy Bullock and Haruo Nakajima, one of the men who played Godzille inside the suit.
It’s held at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, which is, I’m told, a state of the art facility with the added bonus of free shuttles from all over the NYC area.
And now, for a shocking surprise: I’m actually working on the convention running panels because, well, I guess I just don’t have enough to do what with my 10 other jobs. Also with all the writing about conventions I do, I wanted to get a view a little bit more from the inside…so see how the sausage is made in other words. So look for regular updates over the weekend from Instagram and Twitter!
