And we're back!  Only one week to go until WonderCon!  Excitement is running at an all-time high here at the CRAZYVERSE, and I intend to keep momentum going!  So enough stalling!  Let's dive right into WonderCon 2013!  Enjoy...

Not only are Storm Troopers notoriously bad shots, they are also notoriously bad at remembering their badges!

Loki, Thor and Rainbow Dash... Perfectly normal trio at WonderCon!

Bison wants you!

Night Crawler taking a break from the Munich Circus!

Fry and Amy!  They were a fun pair but were ultimately disappointed that no one was selling any Slurm at the booths.

Bulma stopped by my table to see if I had any Dragonballs stored away.  Sorry dear, but no one gets my four star!

Nice to see these kids finally getting along!

Marty meets Awesom-O!  His fart sequence wasn't initiated!


Megara and Pegasus!  Another con first!

Why is it that the fans can get Ghostrider right, but no movie studio can?

Careful Luigi!  Her apples have been known to cause dire consequences!

After really examining this pic, I'm almost certain that it's nerd extraordinaire Chris Hardwick!

Always gotta give props for a fellow Mystery Science Theater 3000 fan!  Deep 13 runs deep!

Best Patrick cosplay I've ever seen!

And there you have it!  WonderCon 2013!  A great show that was an absolute blast for me!  Did fairly well with sales and saw a lot of awesome cosplay!  If only I'd known how rough 2014 would be!

And that's all for this week folks!  We'll be back at it next time to close out March with a look at WonderCon 2015.  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

And we're back!  Inching closer to WonderCon 2017 by looking back at the first WonderCon in Anaheim back in 2012!  A huge show for me as it marked my debut as an exhibitor, it also taught me that if you're gonna table at a con, you need to be patient!  But hey, we're here for fun stuff, so let's get to it!  Enjoy...

I remember these dudes well as they had me laughing hysterically with their jokes!

 Ice King and Finn can fight at the drop of a hat!

Some pretty insane Transformers cosplay!  I don't know how they made these things!

Deadpool has a certain effect on people!

Didn't know Ravenclaws and Slytherins got along so well!

This Big Bird cosplay easily goes down as the weirdest cosplay ever!  I loved it though!

Watch out for Rancors!

These guys again?!?  What can I say?  Those costumes were badass!

It's Morphin' Time!  And please keep any immature jokes to yourselves!


Gotta admit, it's still somewhat disappointing every time Luke pulls off Vader's mask to reveal his father more or less looks like Curly Howard!


My new favorite fan group at cons!  Loves me some classic Ghostbusters!

Just a quick reminder that someone got paid more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetimes to green light a movie about Abe Lincoln killing vampires.  Just let that sink in for a bit.


And thus was WonderCon 2012!  It was quite the weekend!  Near-freezing temperatures and heavy rain outside was capped off with more crowds than the city could handle for their first big show.  Still, it was quite a rush for a first time exhibitor!  I did better than I'd hoped and made friends for life on the show!  It was a good start!

And once again we are done at the midway point in March!  We'll be back again next time with the WonderCon 2013 experience from the view of CRAZY!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome back CRAZIES!  It's week two of our massive countdown to WonderCon 2017!  Last week, we kicked things off with a look back at the original Anaheim show, WizardWorld, which continues today with what turned out to be the final Wizard show in California to date, WizardWorld 2011!  So strap yourself in and prepare to go back to 2011 for some relatively recent nostalgia!  Enjoy...

 Albus Dumbledore made the rounds in the exhibit hall.  He was looking for something called the Elder Wand.

Little Ultraman!  He got my vote in the Costume Contest!

Gonzo the Great stopped by to say hello to a young fan!

These Ghostbusters were pretty baffled that Death Troopers were at the show, given that Rogue One wasn't even in development yet! 

Bioshock inspires some pretty wild cosplay!  It's like a Scooby Doo villain on acid!

Countess Chocula?

I don't care if his motivator is bad!  R4 kicks ass!

This kid was being painted into a Navi warrior right before everybody's eyes at a make up booth!  Don't know if I'd be brave enough to paint my whole body blue.  I'd likely be mistaken for a giant blue M&M!

They chose the wrong pill!

Some life-size Hotwheels Cars were on display!

Spartans are like turtles I've noticed.  If one falls over, they don't get up too easily!

The Sith seem to come out of nowhere at these shows!

For the first (and only) time ever, Bob Dylan cosplay!

I always love the variety of cosplay you see at big cons!

Venom don't like furries!

And that's a wrap on 2011 and for WizardWorld in Anaheim.  The Wizard shows were always so much fun.  They had a very laid back atmosphere and you could really take your time and browse the tables and booths.  If they ever came back to SoCal, I'd go in a heartbeat!

That's all for this week folks.  We'll be back next time with the start of something big as we relive the debut of WonderCon in Anaheim!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

WOOOOOOO!!!  After a one year hiatus, the CRAZYVERSE is heading back to WonderCon in Anaheim!  So happy to be going back after taking a year off!  Even happier that the show is back in Anaheim and NOT during Easter weekend!  Hopefully that'll lead to a less crowded weekend than past years.  I'm not gonna be tabling this time as hotel costs are making affording a booth impossible, but that's okay.  Frankly, it's a lot of stress running a table at a big show.  And I'm still in fan mode.  It's tough to sit idle at a show like WonderCon!

For those that actually took the time to read every word of my last post, you're likely saying to yourself "Why did I read all of this?"  After pondering that for a second, your next question is likely "What about the art you promised this week?"  Well, that's gonna be postponed for a bit.  With all the excitement of the coming con, I just couldn't pass up the chance to take a trip down memory lane with all these past con pics!  So fear not, the art will return, but for now, we're going to the con!  Enjoy...

(Author's Note: In 2010 and 2011, WizardWorld produced the Anaheim Comic Con)

My bed at the Double Tree Hotel, prior to the ceremonial bed dive!  Goofy as it seems to post this pic, this was the first time I ever stayed at a hotel or been out of town on my own.  It was a pretty big step for me.  A step I'm thankful I took, as this show led me down a very fun path as a cartoonist!

A common site at cons these days, this would be my introduction to the R2 Builders Club!  I have no idea how these guys make these things work, but they're simply amazing! 

A young Clone Trooper takes a look at some of the Star Wars fan clubs!

The ORIGINAL Batmobile!  And yes folks, this was the real deal!

Sleeping Beauty woke up long enough to check out Anaheim's debut Comic Con!

I don't know what game this costume is from, but it's pretty cool!

This Predator was quite the looker!

Lady Deadpool!  It's amazing how popular Deadpool cosplay was that year, even after the disaster that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine.  Now that they've done a GOOD Deadpool movie, it's like nothing but Deadpool cosplay!

One of the numerous R2 units rolling around the exhibit hall took a tumble.  It's top popped off and went skidding across the floor!

I'm guessing he's either a Star Wars fan OC or from one of the novels, because I don't recall him from the movies!

Adam West...  The F'ing Man!

Count Mummenstein.  He's got flaws!

The exhibit hall had a small stage set up in it where strippers, er, dancers put on quick performances for con goers.  These dudes clearly liked what they saw!

You find some pretty interesting characters in the labyrinth that is the exhibit hall!

Who knew the Mad Hatter had a daughter?

Thus closes out WizardWorld 2010!  An insanely fun weekend that seems so long ago now!  One of the best weekends of my life really.  Met many new friends and even a few heroes!  Such a blast!

That's all for this week folks.  We'll be back next time with a look back at the final Wizard show in Anaheim in 2011.  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!
