Hello everyone, I’m so excited after the second day of LA Comic Con! These first two days were a lot of fun and I had a good time. Don’t forget I’ll keep posting it pictures and stories on Instagram, so head over there and follow: real.jacob.airey
For day two, I mostly attended panels that were pretty awesome. The first was the Agents of SHIELD panel with Brett Dalton and Mallory Jansen, who played Agent Ward an Aida respectively. They had some good insight into the show and from switching from hero to villain. Unfortunately, I did not get to ask Dalton about the possibly of playing Batman.
The next panel was hosted by Valiant Comics. They gave some insight into what is coming and if you are a new fan, where to start. They also gave previews of the upcoming ‘Bloodshot’ movie starring Vin Diesel. The coolest thing was getting the free issue of Bloodshot Salvation. Don’t worry, a review is forthcoming.
My favorite panel was the one of branding yourself as a geek. As a pop culture and nerd culture commentator, it was great hearing from Science! comic book writer Jason Inman, nerd YouTuber Trisha Hershberger, The Holder’s Dominion author Genese Davis, and online fashion store Hero Within CEO Tony Kim. They each gave some interesting perspectives in breaking into the world of fandom that I found insightful.
One of the highlights was winning a medium-sized Batgirl poster with a golden dragon in the background by artist Daxiong. It is pretty epic. One final note, I was one of the winners of the FanGuru scavenger hunt. I won my super cute wife a Wonder Woman necklace. Very nice.
I am looking forward to it this third day is going to be cool. The line-up looks like it is going to be awesome. One of my favorite artists, Greg Capullo (Dark Nights Metal), is going to be there and it’s going to be awesome. There also several events including ‘Back to the Future: Secrets of the DeLorean Time Machine,’ ‘Screenwriting For Animation,’ and ‘Comics And Comics.’ All of those look especially geeky.
Like I said on the first day, I have been a nerd and fan of comic books my whole life, this is going to be my very first Comic Con. What better place to go to comic book convention than in sunny Los Angeles, California. I think this will be a whole lot of fun.
