That's right folks! We're a week away from Wondercon, and excitement is running high here in the CRAZYVERSE! After years of convention hopping as a fan, I'm finally taking the next step and making my debut as an exhibitor. I haven't been this scared and excited since my first day at San Diego State, back in August 2006. I really don't know what to expect. I've got the thought in the back of my head that I'm just gonna be sitting alone all weekend, hoping that somebody will come buy a copy of my book. But I also got the thought that there are fans like me out there that like to browse and talk and learn a thing or two. What ever happens will happen I guess, so I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

I know I promised a wrestling post this week, but I probably won't have time to post next week as I'll be busy at Wondercon. So instead, I'm sharing some photos from last year's Anaheim Con, hosted by Wizard! Enjoy...

Ironman and Mil Mascaras! Interesting duo I must say.

I like the red Storm Trooper look. It certainly gives them a more menacing feel.

It's amazing the things one can do with some balsa wood, PVC pipe, LED's and paint! I wish I could build something like this! This Proton Pack was made by the SoCal Ghostbusters, a cosplay group devoted to the greatest movie ever, Ghostbusters!

Although I find the Brightest Day saga to be pretty damn confusing at times with all the figgin' Lantern Corps involved, this Atrocitus costume was pretty badass! It was really hot that weekend too.

Batman and the Flash take some time to share a snack. Apparently Flash was really happy to get his picture taken!

The Madalorian Mercs always have a strong presence at these shows. I'm not all that into cosplay, but the costumes and armor these dudes make is pretty impressive. I mean, look at the above helmets; THEY HAND-MADE THOSE!

Bounty Hunters playing video games. Only at Comic Cons! One of the reasons I love the smaller shows so much is because there is a looser atmosphere, a quality that is sorrily lacking at the San Diego Comic Con.

So that's what the Great Pumpkin looks like! Actually, I believe he's a character from an online game called Zombie Beans. (I honestly can't remember. If I'm wrong, contact me so I can correct it!)

Gambit! I swear, he was the coolest of the X-Men! I waited so long for Gambit to finally be put in one of the movies. Imagine my excitement when they finally did it, and then my disappointment when hardly used him!

If only she'd been in Captain America: the First Avenger! Just kidding folks, it was a good movie. Now if only they'd put her in Avengers...

It's kinda sad that Wizard isn't hosting the Anaheim Con this year. I guess the company isn't doing too good right now, but I'm sure they can get things right again and put on a great show next year! In the meantime, I don't think you'll hear any complaints about Wondercon taking over this year. I'll say this, an Artist Alley table is a hell of a lot cheaper at Wondercon than it is at Wizard World.

Well, that's it for now. I don't think I'll have time for a post next week, so I'll do my obligatory book plug now: FORK IN THE ROAD: The Crazy Collection Vol. 1 premieres next week at Wondercon in Anaheim! I'll be at in Artist Alley at table AA-199! So please stop by, say hello and help me pay my bills by buying a copy! After all, who doesn't want to have Mike and Mindy in convenient book form? Take care y'all and I'll catch y'all later!
