NecronomiCon Report

I came back from Tampa to find a light nip in the air. My con roommate, Dawn Bonnano, would have laughed at me, since I shipped her back to the frozen tundra of Chicago. Yes, I’m a wimp when it comes to cold weather.
Me & my roomie
This year was my first year as a panelist instead of a moderator. It’s so weird answering the questions instead of asking them. I didn’t have a lot of time to attend panels beyond the seven I was on. Yeah, seven. They originally had me on ten, but I dropped three for my own sanity.It was hard to tell which side won the DC vs. Marvel panel with all the fists flying, but the body count indicated a tie. The same with Marvel Movieverse (and TV land). How can Marvel get it so right with the movies, Agent Carter, and Daredevil, but get it so wrong with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Can We Love Heroes Who Use Their Brains Instead of Brawn?, whereupon I risked the wrath of the fandom by ‘fessing up that I preferred RDJ’s Sherlock to BC’s. Yep, that’s how I roll.

One of these things is not like the other
I took a quick peek at the NecronomiProm, which hosted its third wedding this year. Firefly themed! I also accomplished quite a bit of holiday shopping in the dealer’s room. So much geeky stuff to choose from.I’m not sure if I’ll make it back to NecronomiCon next year, but I’m going to try.
