Super MegaFest Saturday Cosplay Gallery – Part 1

Posted November 24, 2014 by Rodney Brown

Super MegaFest is a comics and pop culture convention held in Framingham, Mass., at the Sheraton hotel.

RICC 2014 Review – ‘Go Big or Go Home’ Isn’t a Management Strategy

Posted November 6, 2014 by Rodney Brown

Rhode Island Comic Con held its third annual event this past weekend, and, unless you weren’t paying attention at all, you have seen the reports of how dysfunctional the crowd management was.

Cosplay Isn’t Killing Comic Cons, But What Is Changing Them Is…

Posted September 22, 2014 by Nerd Caliber Staff

Recently Bleeding Cool published an article by Denise Dorman, wife of famed illustrator Dave Dorman, called “Is Cosplay Killing Comic Con?” You can read the article in its original location, but spoilers, it’s just an opinion piece with no facts to back it up, just personal observations. The issue is not whether cosplayers are destroying conventions […]
