After spending an awesome weekend geeking out at Stan Lee’s Comikaze and having the opportunity to record tomorrow’s episode with one of our favorite listeners, I realized I’ve run a little short on time to write my post on Skyrim: Dragons vs. Vikings: Part II. However, the time spent at Comikaze gave me a chance to catch up with one of my favorite independent artists, Pao, the creator of HANGBoY. I first had the opportunity to check out his unique take on history (and particularly the Second World War) at San Diego Comic-Con in 2011 and again at WonderCon 2012, and now he’s definitely on my to-see list of any convention we happen to both attend. Why? Because his work IS AWESOME!

The event I have been waiting for has finally come and gone, Denver Comic Con 2012 was amazing. This was its inaugural year, and they rose to the challenge. I will have to admit that I haven’t been to a convention in four years, so I was even more excited just to be able to go to a convention, let alone one that turned out to be so great. Myself, my girlfriend, and a friend of hers, all had a great time at the convention, so I present to you a summary of the weekend and some of my experiences. If you would like a more detailed look at the event from my eyes, feel free to come visit my site: thegeekpath.com.

I have been anxious to see Comic Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope ever since I heard the internet chatter some time ago. So, when I saw that it was available for rent through Amazon Streaming I clicked away my $6.99 and spent my (slightly extended) lunch break in Nerdvana.
I actually try to avoid doing reviews here at MitC, mainly because I feel like opinions are like a-holes and well… you know the rest. But, I suppose it’s sort of my job to let the readers and listeners know my opinion on… stuff. So, here goes…
