This year’s Awesome Con saw no shortage of voice actor talent; however, among these incredibly talented artists, I was particularly eager to speak with actor/comedian, Phil Lamarr. No at all a stranger to the convention, I was eager to get his take on this year’s Con (seeing that he has attended many times before). In addition, he also shared with me his thoughts regarding The Artist Formerly Known As Prince (an artist whom he memorably impersonated on the comedy series, MAD TV). Check out the interview below… Continue reading “2016 Awesome Con EXCLUSIVE: Phil Lamarr Talks Awesome Con & The Legacy of Prince”
STAR WARS. ET. Tetris…What do these properties have in common? Well, they’re entities which many of us would agree transcend media form, age, race, or even religion. While there are perhaps only a handful of such properties that exist, few would argue that the 30+ year old Mario Bros. game franchise definitely fits the bill.

Despite being distinctly disparate forms of media, we live in a day and age where comics and film are more closely associated together than ever (thanks largely to the various film adaptations that are now out there). With that in mind, I caught up with prolific writer, Joe Harris, at Awesome Con, to discuss this current landscape of comics and film that we, as fans, live in. As someone who has written in both comics and film, Harris provides a unique perspective on how film has evolved; particularly, those inspired by comics. In addition, he also sheds light on some of his future projects as well. You can check out the interview below… Continue reading “2016 Awesome Con EXCLUSIVE: Joe Harris Talks Writing Comics vs. Film”
Whether on the small screen or big screen, actor Jeremy London has popped up in both mediums to deliver memorable performances over the years. Not a stranger to the convention scene, I asked the actor/director about his Awesome Con impressions (especially seeing that this was his 1st year coming). In addition, I also took the opportunity to ask him about the MALLRATS sequel (which, at the time, was still under the wraps). Check out the interview below… Continue reading “2016 Awesome Con EXCLUSIVE: Special Guest Jeremy London Talks AWESOME CON & MALLRATS”
Of the many iconic elements of the STAR WARS decades long franchise, few can deny the impact that the villain, Darth Vader, has had not only on STAR WARS, but on pop culture as a whole. With that said, at this year’s Awesome Con, I was afforded the opportunity to speak with the opposing figure behind the mask, actor Dave Prowse. In the interview, Prowse opened up about being a special guest at Awesome Con as well as his opinions on the latest STAR WARS film. Check it out below….
As mentioned before, if you follow me, you know that I love my Cons! After starting my Con Season with C2E2, I now await the commencement of my summer Cons, starting first with my hometown Con known only as Awesome Con. Having attended since its 1st year in 2013, I have witnessed the Con steadily GROW (and I do mean GROW) year after year. Though the event has slowly revealed info regarding their incredible guest list week after week, today they have released their first official press release. Check it out below…
