Are You Going to MegaCon???

Megacon is my first and only large multi-genre convention that I have attended. I am hoping to also attend other much larger venues like Comic-Con in San Diego and Dragon-Con in Atlanta as well but MegaCon is pretty much a done deal for me as I can travel easily up from Miami. While the vendors are fine, I mainly want to go for the guest plus any panel discussions they may have.

The last time I was there, I remembered seeing Gil Gerard and Erin Gray from the Buck Rogers series. Erin looked incredible as I adore an older woman’s look but Gil… was much heavier and almost unrecognizable from the Gil I grew up with. Recently, watching the Discovery Health Channel, I saw a special on Gil where he went under the knife to help restore his health. I can totally relate to Gil’s problem with weight as I too have struggled going up and down on the scale. Take a look at the YouTube clip below but if you can, find it on your local cable or sat. tv for this program, it’s worth time. On that note, while I am not the type of person that feels comfortable approaching Con guest, (I don’t want to be a dork in front of them), I am sort of planning to buy the Buck Rogers dvd set and have him and Erin sign it.

Aside from this, I am planning to interview Robert Venditti “The Surrogates” and Andy Runton “Owly” from Top Shelf Comix. Last year, the Hero Initiative Organization held a bowling event after MegaCon which I had the best time and met artist Chris Moreno who I also have on my list to interview. I am hoping for the same type of event in ’08 but nothing has been posted on the MegaCon website. So, if you live in the Orlando area or planning to attend, let me know so we can possibly meet up and perhaps, record you on my podcast. Leave me a message via Meebo or email me:
