I’m an online slacker.

Sorry for the tumbleweeds on webjon lately. I suppose it’s not all that uncommon to take a bit of a break. Generally though that happens when things are quiet. . . this time that’s not the case.

I should have posted a Wizard World Chicago review long ago. I haven’t yet. I wanted to take some time to digest the show before writing about it as it was an unusual show in many ways. The dealers and exhibitors generally seemed to be in a funky mood, and I still have no idea why. I left the show with cash in my pocket which is always frustrating. I am planning on doing a look back post to discuss the con. There were some great highlights and pics which I hope you’ve enjoyed.

The Chicago Non-Sport Show was awesome. There were good crowds, friends, lots of product. . . it was a lot of fun. Very sad to see Ed moving out of the area, but I’m glad Kevin is continuing the show. I literally just got done cleaning up all my stuff from that show last week.

I was hoping to have a review of AwesomeCon’s Milwaukee Show. I was really looking forward to checking that show out — in case you haven’t heard it has been canceled. Bummer.

Wizard World is coming to Madison in early February. . . Weather permitting I’d love to check out that show. Madison in February could be really dicey.

I can’t believe there are only 3 episodes of Sons of Anarchy left. Cryptozoic did a fantastic job with their SOA 1-3 set this year. I can’t wait to see the rest of their SOA releases.

Speaking of releases — where is 5FINITY’s Mandy? Seems like it is very late from it’s proposed release date (I can’t believe collectors are still pre-paying for sets six months in advance after all the delays and issues in 2013) and there is basically no talk of this set online.

I’m actually getting physical junk mail sent to ‘webjon’ . . . I must be legit now :-)

Guess that’s all I’ve got at the moment. . .

Black Friday is upon us — hopefully I’ll have some breaks to talk about after that!

Many of the restaurants attached to the parking garage at the convention center offer discounts on food with your badge and validate parking!

That’s a change of pace…
