So despite the bad trip I had to the Wizard Philly con, it was a nice one. Empty, but nice. A weird thing about this con was that even tho you got a badge, all you needed was a wrist band....I wonder how many people used the same band for all three days?
Marvel and DC opted out this year (which may be a sign of the times...), But alot of my good buddies were there. I ran into Jose Caldron and Daphne Lange,
The HBC guys, and
Brian Kong just to name a few. Because of car trouble, I only got to really enjoy the con on Saturday. So here's what I did/saw...
On the show floor, not one, not twice, but three times did I run into Jill Pantozzi, better known as The Nerdy Bird. We attended an Archaia panel together. Seems that they just recently went under a re-structuring and are back on track publishing their titles. I really, really, really wanted to see Cerina Vincent (as mentioned before) but it turned out that she was.....not as hot as I had hoped. So I actually saw her all by her lonesome, but didn't approach her. Besides, she didn't have any power ranger stuff with her and if I am paying for an autograph/photo It will be a higher caliber ranger (maybe Amy Jo Johnson...). The only people that I noticed that had any kind of crowd was Edward James Olmos, Ray Park, and Ted Rami. Oh! I got to see the original Kight Rider car! Took a photo with it (it had its own table..).
Here is some insider info, I ran into The Last Dragon's Taimak very nice guy! He tells me that there is a remake of "The Last Dragon" in the works...Sadly he was asked to have a cameo and nothing more....To me, he looks like he still has the glow!
