7 Years of Wizard World

So after everything was said and done with this years Wizard World Comic Con. They sent out a thank you email to all those who had a press pass. In the first paragraph it goes on about the positive feedback from guests and fans. Then it states that it was the 7th year… Wait what? Has it been 7 years? I have I been doing this for 7 years? Good lord…

This got me thinking about pass events and interviews or even stories I haven’t shared yet.. Some of them I changed my mind and didn’t want to share them. As silly as that sounds, I wanted to keep them to myself that the time. But the more I think about it, the more I just want to share them with everyone. So I thinking I’ll do a “Lost Tales of Wizard World” series in between current posts of this years event.

Buffy Reunion WW Portland 2019.jpgBut I have to say this year was amazing! It was a Buffy The Vampire theme Comic Con this year that’s for sure. Along with DC over tones from the movies and TV shows. The Artists this year were excellent, dare I say better than last years? I actually found myself buy more art work than anything this year and taking more pictures. The Cosplay was fantastic as well, which my kids loved it and took part in it as well.

But all that will be for other posts come out shortly. But I have some updates I would like share!! ON Jan. 24-26 of 2020 Wizard World Portland Oregon will be back! As of right now word on any guests or artists, it just to soon after. So Save the date!!

Wizard World 2019 News: James Marsters Dropped??

So a few days ago, I was roaming around Twitter as you do and saw a post from James Marsters say that he was dropped random from Wizard World Portland. With no reason as to why, he went on to inform everyone that was coming to this comic con. I might note that this Wizard World is vary heavy on the Buffy theme with Alyson Hannigan, Alexis Denisof, Juliet Landau, Julie Benz, Amber Benson, Clare Kramer, and Charisma Carpenter.

With an out cry from his fans trying to figure out as to why he was removed from the line up. I personally went and asked my PR that I go through for my press pass and asked him. He didn’t have any idea as to why he was dropped as well. So after a few conversations back and forth, later on that day James updated he Twitter stating:

Jan 29

After seeing the concern and love from everyone last night, both me and ‘s management have mutually worked things out. I’m so happy to announce that I will still be attending Wizard World Portland! I’m very excited for this Buffy extravaganza and seeing you there!

A New Podcast Is Coming

Before I explain the new podcast that is about when the launch date is about to happen. I must share a bit of sad news about Geek Fallout’s end. Earlier this month the original owners/creators of Geek Fallout made the move and ended the podcast.

“Me(Mike King) and Richard Rehder are hanging up the Geek Fallout network. My first podcast was with them and still exists, with a new name, Tech Chatr, on the Chatr Nexus. If you don’t like tech talk podcasts, we will have other kinds of shows in the near future so stay tuned. And be sure to like that page and send in stuff you would like us to review, or if you would like to guest on our shows. Can’t wait to hear from you all

I’ve been doing Geek Fallout for a number of years and it was also my first introduction to podcasting as a whole. Because of this podcast I went on to do a number of shows, like: Trek1701, Random Nerdness, Geek Fallout Top 5, Eclectic Mayhem Podcast, Geek Fallout Comic Book Eps. While it is a sad time, it does gives us a change to start anew.

So with this clean slate, Chris Lockhart and I are now starting up a new podcast called The Pop Culture Pub. This is Chris’s brain child and asked if I would be his new co-host for the show! Together we’re working to bring something new to the table and bring in some past podcasting friends. The current link for the show is on Podbean (The Pop Culture Pub ) and there is a iTunes profile being made at the moment. I’ll post that here soon! There is current a few shows posted, that were made by Chris Lockhart explaining the new show and the over all idea behind it.
