Who has 2 thumbs and will be attending this years Cherry City Comic Con as a member of the media?
I am a reluctant con goer. I will be up front about that, but the Northwest Comic Con is my favorite by far. Why? It isn’t over reaching! There are not 20 actors roaming around that have very little connection if any to comics, superheroes, or iconic movies. There is not floor upon floor of artists trying to stand out. It is small and honest. It is a budding project that provides an interesting snippet into a con experience for a family of geeks without getting lost in the fandom.
I enjoyed meeting artists and people watching, but I also enjoyed something I have never seen before at a con... Customer service. When areas got crowed and people needed a place to site reps brought out tables and chairs. Rest breaks are under achieved at larger cons. You can spend a whole day trekking from the Avengers to Zootopia with nothing but the floor as a rest stop. After a full con you will be too tired to even notice Zootopia shouldn’t be a part of the con experience.I loved the benefits that were represented at this con, everyone from The 501st Legion to Outer Rim Collective, and that is so often over looked. The overwhelming appeal of comics and the like are the hero and heroines of the story. They bring the fight and that’s what these groups are doing here. They are bringing the fight and working for a cause under the comic con banner. I salute you.Damsel in Defense - http://damselindefense.net/Outer Rim Collective - http://www.outerrimcollective.org/501st Legion (Cloud City Garrison & Kashyyyk Base) - https://www.501st.com/Mandalorian Mercs (Concordia Clan) - http://mandalorianmercs.org/
