A couple years ago I was lucky enough to stumble into a panel at Comic-Con about a documentary focusing on the poster artist for the original Star Wars trilogy. What I didn’t know at the time was that this artist had created the iconic posters for some of my favorite movies when I was a child, everything from Goonies to Back to the Future.
One of the best parts of a new year, besides failing miserably at your resolutions by the second week of January, is the start of a whole new convention season. Whether you are rabidly anticipating the “Geek Mecca” that is San Diego Comic-Con or like to keep it low-key and hit up your local favorites, we here at the Podcast love conventions, large and small. From awesome (to awesomely bad) cosplay to getting mad-dogged by The Incredible Hulk himself, Lou Ferrigno, hitting the convention circuit and reporting back to our listeners is definitely a top priority for the podcast monkeys this year.
Join us this week as we welcome our most seasoned Con-goer and close personal friend, The David from the Greenlandic Powerpop band The Maxies, as we recollect some highlights from convention trips past. Grab your daily passes and stack up your swag while we dive into this week’s look at the convention experience. It’s both chaotic and fun, just like the convention floor!
