Well, it's time to attend my second Wizard World Comic-Con coming to Tulsa, OK this weekend. Sadly again, there is no one I really care to see there.
Yeah, Norman Reedus, Sean Astin, Bruce Campbell, Tricia Helfer, Taryn Manning, The Undertaker, Vince Neil !?, Jason David Frank, along with voice actors Kevin Conroy (Batman), Phil Lamarr (John Stewart Green Lantern), and Charles Martinet (Mario Bros) will be there, the only one affordable is WWE Diva Charlotte (Ric Flair's daughter) and current Women's Champion.
Everyone wants $40 and up for a single signature, Charlotte is only charging $20 for a color 8x10 and she's 5'10"
I really enjoy Kevin Conroy as Batman and is the ONLY Batman voice actor since 1992 when the animated series started, but not sure if I wanna pay the $40 for his signature.
Last year, I helped a couple of people I know and got Norman's signed pic for a lady at work who gave it to her daughter and another friend wanted Robert Englund's pic for her son and that was good to help someone. I would do it again for someone I like.
I just wish some of the other actors/actresses that attend the other Comic-cons would come to Tulsa. I would love to meet Katie Cassidy and Caity Lotz to name a couple.
Just this last weekend at the Dallas Comic-Con, Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor were together there!!!! Wish they could come up Hwy 75 from Dallas into Tulsa for at least our Saturday event.
I'm just mainly going to see what cool collectibles there are and get some pics of the awesome cosplayers that will be there. My current gallery has some of them, but that's only a fraction of what was there. Not all of them I cared for, but Harley Quinn was the most popular one ( in all her various outfits). That's why I have her pic for this journal because I really like this outfit as well as the one from the Injustice video game and comic book.
Hopefully, I'll see more Wonder Woman, Power Girl, She-Hulk, Elektra, Psylocke, Ms. Marvel(Captain),Supergirl, Black Canary, etc. The guys do pretty good, too, but I'm kinda biased towards the ladies
Heck, a couple of guys showed up with one painted green and other red one the same day I got meet She-Hulk(see profile pic for proof). She showed up two days later as Power Girl. She fit the character
Last year, I got the Batman/Wonder Woman statue that was part of the Justice League cover set for a great price of $150. I could've got the Black Canary/Superman piece,but spent too much on Greg Horn's prints. Stupid me!!
The only other highlight this year is that the actual Landspeeder X-34 replica will be there for pics as well as the K.I.T.T. car, DeLorean Time Machine, TV batmobile, Jurassic Park Jeep, 1969 Herbie Love Bug, Charger from Fast and Furious.
I'm going for all 3 days since I got my pass last february and by the looks of it, Tulsa is not listed for a 3rd visit yet so this could be it for a while.
I'll take as many cosplay pics as I'm allowed (have to ask permission first to take their pic) and post everything I can. If there is someone here on DA who does cosplay who happens to be showing up for the Tulsa Comic-con, Let me know who you'll be and I'll introduce myself and hope to get your pic for posting along with given credit. Would be pretty cool to meet someone from DA in person to see hi at least.
Last year, I got to meet my top three faves, She-Hulk, Wonder Woman, & Power Girl along with a Psylocke, Harley, and Rogue. Hope to see more along with more of the same.
Taking off work this week to save money on gas, food, and God, I need a break from the 50-60 hour work weeks so I can re-charge and get some comics together to hopefully get signed by the artists. I am very glad that Mike Mayhew is gonna be there this time cause I love his art and he did the first 12 issue mini-series for She-Hulk about 10 years ago. He's currently doing the Vampirella covers and he helped create Lady Rawhide who I like as well.
I'll be interested in his prints ( in moderation, of course) and hope he'll sign all my comics with his covers like Greg Horn did last year. Greg was scheduled to be here, but pulled out over the weekend for some reason.
We was gonna get Nathan Fillion and Mike Tyson, but about a month ago, they canceled too. Nathan would've been cool, but he wanted $100 a signature!!
OK, I'm done typing about nothing and hope that the forecasted rain this weekend doesn't hurt the attendance for this event even though parking is covered and I'll walk straight from my car to the indoor even all protected from the rain. Just wonder where the movie vehicles are gonna be parked to protect them?
Really wish some of the actresses I like would show up for this event sometime
If you wanna comment on your past Comic-Cons, please tell me about them. I wanna hear about them.
