Okay so if you live in Florida the big bad granddaddy of all sci-fi comic conventions is MegaCon and it's happening this weekend March 25-27th up in Orlando. I promised myself that while I lived down here I'd check it out and this is going to be my shot! The big guests are Stan Lee and William Shatner but what's really awesome are some of the other people that'll be there of most extreme roboplasticological importance! In addition to getting to meet some more artists who worked on 5finity's Voltron sketch card set, I'll have a chance to see Dennis O'Neil! He's a comic book writer and editor who is probably best known as the first guy to really take Batman seriously and bring that character out of the pop culture joke status it had after the late 60s. But the reason Dennis O'Neil is really a big deal is that according to legend, he's the guy who named Optimus Prime! He's bound to have some awesome stories to tell! So stay tuned and maybe if I ever get out from under this avalanche of school work and I make it to MegaCon I'll have one heck of a con report sometime next week!
