2015 was FLIM Springfield’s first year presenting at Phoenix Comicon. I’ve attended it regularly for the past four years as a fan, but this year I really needed the break.
My day job has been a lot like this every day for the past 9 month
Held in downtown PHX, I got to leave my car at home
and take the light rail!
Even the first day, on the ride over, some folks were already in cosplay
A rush to pick up my tickets!
And headed off the Geeks Getting Involved panel
hosted by some friends in the local creative community
Where I promoted our Sunday Classic Simpsons Trivia Panel and Flim Springfield,
and then hit the floor to scope out some back issue bargains!
I kept my eyes open for Simpsons costumes, but struck out 3 days in a row!
Sure everybody loves Bob’s Burgers and Homestuck, but…
So I spent most of the weekend trying to finish off my back issue kill list
and find this comic in particular
To no avail.
A seriously baffling absence, unavailable at any price.
It isn’t a unique or rare comic by any means,
But one fans of The Thing have really latched on to.
I got a little fixated on it after a while…
Still, I found plenty to spend my hard earned quarters on
Without a cent left over for moon pies.
Especially after lunch the first day…
Should have held out for the food trucks
So I met some celebs
got some autographs
And sat through some Q & A panels
And checked in with friends and FLIM Springfield supporters
And soon it was Sunday morning,
time for Classic Simpsons Trivia!
And there was still time for post-game gawking
It was time to go home and rest.
The world was safe again … but for how long?!
One more time, here’s links to the folks who supported our panel:
