I'm back from Megacon 2011 and I had an awesome time. I got to do a ton of stuff during the two days I went. I interviewed four more artists who worked on the 5finity Voltron project, I saw Stan Lee speak, I took a few pics with some people in insane costumes, bought myself another Mazinger-Z and also I met this really cool pottery collector from Colorado with an assload of tattoos. Holy hell I met Chuck Rosanski! Chuck is a legend in comics retailing and president & CEO of Mile High Comics. He's also one of the greatest blogger/columnists I've ever read. Although I'm not much of a comics buyer I do subscribe to the Mile High Comics e-mail newsletter because his weekly messages are some of the most interesting and well written blog style journal entries ever. And the column he used to do for Comic Buyer's Guide called Tales from the Database was some of the most profound thought on the comic industry (and collecting pottery) I've ever read. I saw him walking around MegaCon and I couldn't believe it so I chased him down to tell him how much I loved his e-mails and we talked and he was as funny and interesting as his writing. What an awesome and unexpected experience. Remember when he had West Nile virus and made a discount code called WESTNILE for 20% off all comics at his site? That's why I love Chuck Rosanski.
Expect Roboplastic Podcastalypse #26 with the Voltron artist interviews and a wrap up of MegaCon 2011 later this week!
