With each of the actors and actress that were on hand that the fans got to meet. There was chance to get up and close personal with them and get their autographs or personal photos taken with them as well just like other comic con. You also had the chance to check out there panel as well to learn a little about them or ask question about their careers or what they got coming up.

There was also many other panels as well like a medieval combat sports that show the history and how combat of the age of steel where fought. Another room was for young kid so they could go in and do a big of art making as well giving parent a bit of time to sit down and relax a bit.  

As usual there was a huge cosplay contest (for those that don’t know what cosplay is, it where people dress up or make home costume of their favorite characters from mainstream media). This always get a lot of great costume for contest some which could be seen below. Cosplay tend to spend year on making their costume and so just day each bring their character to life and portraying them the way they could have them act.

Now if the panels or the contest wasn’t for you then it was possible to also due a bit of shopping as well. There was many artist along with vendor on hand selling all them hard to find items or the next issue of the comic , book, drawing, or toy.  Some of the items that were on sale for people to buy was also hand made for that special touch.

So there was a lot to see and due. If you miss out you just have to wait one more year to see if it make it way back to us. One good thing is that even though this year was small comic con at Cobo Hall they have lot more room to grow from adding more panels with all the available space along with add more media star along with vendor. We can hope that next year they that artist alley will next up two more room to make it even huge. That way people will get more choice to thing they want to buy along with help finding that hard to find items.

We see what happen and what next year bring to this great event. So check out some of the photo below.

It’s a bird, a plane, no it’s a arrow? Motor City Comic Con 2018

Nerds, geeks, movies lover and sport fans. The 2018 Motor City Comic con was the place to be in Novi Michigan this year. It was another big year for Motor City Comic con with over some 55,000 fans descended to the Suburban Collection Show Place for the annual event.

It place host to 42 special media guests, 229 comic artists with a wide array of talent to 107 different vendor and 36 crafters that was on hand for the three day event. So everything on hand there was a lot to see and do.  Just like fans where able to see a lot so where the artist as they could talk with there fellow comic artist that where on hand, like we was able to do before the event even took place by getting the chance to interview Robert  Pope. He was artist that we was got to interview the week of the event. Robert Pope is a artist out of the great state of Georgia . He love to draw from a early age and drew his inspiration for different comic book and other comic medias. He drew for companies like DC Comic, The Peanuts gangs. You can see some of the question we was able to ask him at the end of the article.

With all this thing that was on hand there was some sad new that blew a small sadness to the event this year. One of the biggest Media star for a special 40 anniversary had a passed away the Sunday before the event. But this still didn’t put a damper on the event, Motor City Comic Con made the best of it.

The passing of actress Margaret Ruth Kidder who played Lois Lane from the original superman movies, was going to be on hand for the 40th anniversary of the movies. So to show there support not just of the movie but of her career. They took the time to decorate her space with flowers and everything for fan to remember her. They even got a huge blow up picture of her that people could come by and sign along with a special guest book that was sent to her family after the event had ended.

MotorCityComicCon_20180518_20180518_Joe's Photography-8

But even with that loss at the event there was a few great gift at the event. First one was that Tom Welling from the TV Smallville and Lucifer. He brought with him just for Friday only was Michael Rosenbaum (plays Lex Luthor from Smallville). Rosenbaum cam in to share the spot like with Tom and event sit in on his panel for Friday.  If you was lucky to sit in on the panel you might got a great treat for doing so. As Tom and Michael came out on stage first thing Michael ask was there a wireless microphone anywhere then he saw it down on the floor where fan where able to walk up and ask question. So instead of staying on stage Michael walk down and took over the fan wireless microphone. As fan where light up he said he was going to help them ask there question to the both of them.

Some of the question where ask was like what was your funny moment in Smallville. Tom would tell the young fan who was being hugged by Michael waiting for the answer was that it was the time that Michael was playing his farther in a episode. Tom would set the scene by explaining that when we walk on set he saw two huge crane that Micheal would be harnessed into for the shot to show him flying in.  Micheal would then take over by explaining what had happen to make it funny.  It’s the fact that he was to come flying in and then land perfectly in front of Tom and say his line. How ever as he would explain that as he would come flying it for some reason he start twisting in the rigging and doing a bit of acrobats that would have tom laughing so hard. That when he landed and Micheal would say his line Tom said that he just crack up even more and that it took about 5 take in the show of him flying before they got right form the laughing.

MotorCityComicCon_20180518_20180518_Joe's Photography-42

There were many media stars on hand and each had there own panel through the weekend.  There was one media star who could be there cause she broke her leg and her doctor told her that she could fly in. How ever even with not being able to show. She tweeted that she is sending a ton of free stuff that will be given away at her panel for all her fans, each item was sign with a special note.

One of the biggest draw this year for media star was Stephen Amell from the TV show Arrow. His panel was fill to the max with fans that got a great answer to there waiting question that they wanted to ask him. He even during his panel would drop a few hint for what the next season of arrow will offer ask one of the fan ask him a question about what is next to come for him. He went on to answer the question and then drop the hint that in the new season he is planning on wearing the signature green arrow goatee. If you ever seen the original green arrow comic and in cartoons, the characters would wear a goatee. How ever he was very adamant that no matter what he would not wear the dopey  arrow hate with the feather tuck in it (think of robin hood outfit).

There where many other panel that went on through the event that you would get little nugget like the one Stephen Amell drop.  But if you wasn’t meet them in there panel you get the chance to stand in line to get there autograph of that favorite item you have or buy one of there personal photo they all offered.

You also was able to buy your own special photo op with each of the media stars that was on hand.  But with the media star you still was able to do a lot. You could do a bit of shopping as well from the hundreds of vendors on . Some of the item you could been lucky to buy was the rare toy or your very own hand drawn comic art from of one of the artist that was on hand.

Some of the artiste who where on hand when they weren’t signing art,they was drawing it for everyone to see. Like this artist who use chalk as her medium to draw out huge works of art. Just like the one she was doing during the comic con.

There was a lot to see and do, but let’s not forget about all the fans that was on hand as well to see beside the artists and media guests. Fans came in all shape and size even a few cam dress up in there favorite costumes (to become a cosplayer) for everyone to see.  You could see fans dress up every day of the event but on Saturday was the biggest day for those fans that want to do some extra to show off. There was a cosplay contest (costume contest) that they could enter for a chance to win thousand of dollar in prices.

The contest took place at near the end of the event.  This saw hundreds of fans dress up in there cosplay outfits each of them that enter would come on on to stage where they could show off what they where wearing and even made.  They also had the chance to talk or do a small skit to show off there cosplay.  One of the lucky winner of the the contest on Saturday was a group who played out He-Man and mater of the universe.

But Saturday wasn’t the only day for costume contest. Sunday saw another contest for cosplay but this time it was for the small one. The contest on Sunday was the little kid. This would always a wide array of costume little one.

So if you missed out on this one you have to wait another for the Motor City Comic Con.  Motor City Comic Con will be head on May 17-19 2019 and will be the 30th Anniversary.  We can hope that it will be even bigger then this year cause also while we was at the event we learn that the Showcase was being upgraded by building new section to the location.

We will see everyone there and what new thing will come.

Interview with Robert Pope

MotorCityComicCon_20180518_20180518_Joe's Photography-16

 

Question:  What got you into doing comic art?

Answer: I got into doing art when I was younger. I was always seeming to draw different characters. But it wasn’t till I look at the old peanuts comic strips that I truly wanted to make this what I wanted to due.

He would also tell yea some of of this other influences was the Loony Tunes and Walt Disney.

Question: How due you come up for the ideas when doing a comic book.

Answer: Most of the time I follow  script but event then it hard to draw something. Sometime you have to come up with your idea. Cause unlike with television show when you see a action the screen would fade to black and then you see the what happen. Drawing a comic book I have to remember that when you see the cause of something cause of the way you ready it you have to do it in a way that you flip the page you see the action that had happen.

He would give example of the Willie coyote and road runner show. Where you see Willie strap him self to a rocket and it would fire then screen would go black and you next see the road runner as the rocket would fly bu just in time for Willie to be hit by a rock or something. This is what he would explain would be the hard party in drawing a comic book.

Question: What you like about going to Comic Cons?

Answer:  The thing I like about going to them is meeting fans. Having them come up and having them ask me how I got me start. I love tell fans how I got my start. I also love it when I hear from fan as they talk to other artist on how they got there start as well.  Learning that how we each differ in the ways we got our starts. This is what I like about going to Comic Cons. Seeing the interaction between fans and other artists.

As we finished up our out talk and getting a wide array of answer to the question we ask we wanted to end with this one.

Question: With the use of Digital media and internet Do you find that the way comic book and print media are changing?

Answer:  Well even with the wide array of thing you can ready on the internet when it come to comic book. I still see that the print media will still be around. The reason being that as comic book are created the internet. That the publisher and writer still do a printed virsin for there own vaults, like in the case of DC Comic. They print thousands of comic booth for for digital media and print. But each one of them had a printed copy that a person can walk into there vault and see.

Fantasy Con 2016 Birch Run Michigan

Auto Bots Roll out, whom you going to call? As fans flock to the small town of birch run Michigan for the first ever comic book convention. The birch run expo center play host to Fantasy Con, which brought you everything, you like in a comic book adventure with out traveling to a big town. You got everything you want in this small con. They had artist, vendor, attraction and location for panels.

As you enter the small con you might think that as big as the expo center is that you would see a big comic con. However this was there first year, while it maybe small it still packs a big punch. First off as you enter you see vendor selling everything from comic book to toys and let’s not forget everyone favorite comic book both old and now and very reasonable prices. While it was small they still had a few super star from both the movie and comic book industry for you to check out as well.

There was artist on hand drawing comic books right on the spot beside showing off there latest creation.   Beside the artist on had they had a few things for there first year that would draw everyone in and get them to come back for more. The Detroit ghost buster where on hand with there stay puff marshmallow man along the eco 1 for fans to site in or by and get there picture taken. Some that a lot of con don’t have was for the first time every the only truly fan built replica from Hasbro movie Transformers which is one of a kind that they got permission right form Hasbro them self to let them built it. That was the big draw for both the young fans and the one that group with the old movie and love the new one.

They have many different panels going on for the two-day weekend. One of which was a special-fx make up demo. This gave people a chance not only to watch on how to apply make up for a look that they always want to created but they got to ask question and was answer by one of the pro that was feature on the Sci-Fi Show Face Off.

On Friday the show offer something special for the kids by hosting a kids only cosplay contest (for those that don’t know what it is that is a contest where people dress up from there favorite shows). The winner of this contest was two boys from the walking dead, Raven from Teen Titans and another girl form one of the animie cartoon that round out the tops of the contest. There were a lot of great costumes to choose from but these where the one that stood out the most.

On Saturday saw a return of the Cosplay contest with the adult and Teen contest. Here we was many different homemade costume as well but that three that stood out in the judge eye was the follow Racketeer, Baby girl from bio Shock, evil queen from what we think was the wizard of oz.

In between both contest everyone was treat to a special show put on by the Detroit Ghostbusters group. The first thing was a performance where they reenacted the last scene with the Stay-puff marshmallow man, along with that Stay-Puff also got in a little time to do the chicken dance with a few of the fellow kids cosplayer. On Saturday everyone was treated to a small show where the MC of the contest was dress up as Captain Kirk and he slay Mr Stay-puff not only with his phazer but he final put him down with his pen after his phazer quite working. You truly can say that the pen is mightier then the sword.

That pretty much sum up the event, however talking with organizers they hope to grow to a even bigger event next year. Since this was the first of it kind in this area. So they look forward to returning next to bring new thing.

All of the photo from the day event can be seen blow.

The three-day event held lots of things to do. Starting it off with the panels on Friday where you could listen to James Marsters as he talked about his role a spike on the show of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, during a Q&A session with his fans. He also talked about his other roles that he played, at one point telling one fan about how, with the role of Spike, that he only had one coat that he used for all 8 season. When he played Spike, in the TV show Angel, they had brought in a women to special make that same coat for the show since the original had been sold. He even went on to say how he took the new coat to make it more weathered by getting down on his own knees to rub it in the dirt and o the rocks to give it that distress look.

On Saturday, it was the big draw day not just for the super stars on hand for the three-day event (you can see a full list of stars by going to http://motorcitycomiccon.com and clicking on media), but also one of the biggest days for those that showed up in costume to show off some of their favorite thing to do. Being at the show you see a lot of different people that just come out to show off their cosplay costume. It’s not just for single people to dress up or teens, even family get into the event by dressing up as their favorite character, just like the Frazine’s family (Kate, Art and little Sasha) as they dress up as the Harry Potter family Motorcitycomcon_mag_0198_20160513Saturday also saw the huge Cosplay Contest for those that came out in costume. You were able to get entered into the contest that was judged this year by Ivy Doomkitty (Celebrity Cosplay Judge, Glen Haetrick (Sci-Fi Face off Judge), Ve Neill (Sci-Fi Face off Judge) and Alloy Ash (Pop Culture Icon).

As the con winds down on Saturday there were still two more thing to do. There was an after party that ran from 9 pm till 1 am where you were able to dance the night away. Even the star got in on this event and one star even went on to have his very own special meet and greet where you got to talk take personal photos one on one (this year was hosted by Jason David Franks of the Mighty Morphine Power Rangers a.k.a Tommy Oliver).

Following everything that went on Saturday from the contest to the panels, Sunday came with even more fun, this day was designed with the little ones in mind as you can see from our little Wonder Women (Played by 3 year old Lilly Johnson).  MichiganeventMagazine_0234_20160514.jpg

Not only was there Id making for all the families, sponsor by the Boy Scouts to the contest that was sponsored by the 501st Great Lakes Garrison Legion (Star Wars Replica Club). They had a lot of great kids showing up in costumes even with the limited amount of space they had to use for the event. Hopefully next year they will get put in one of the bigger panel rooms at the end of the con that way even more kids can show off there great costume they made and wore.

 (See Gallery below for photos from the event below)

 So if you didn’t make it out to one of the biggest years ever, then you will have to wait another year to see what big surprises that the Motor City Comic Con Family will be bring for all of us to see maybe even more panels, bigger venue for all of us to show off, bigger super stars and more.

Who Beamed up Morph in Time? Motor City Comic Con 2014

It was truly a place to go where no one has gone before. 

On May 16 thru 18, 2014 was a weekend full of fun with the theme a “Knight To Remember” at this year’s Motor City COM Con. Which was held at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. 

The show opened on Friday May 16 2014. The doors opened at noon for the general public and at 11:30 am for VIPs. People started lining up on Friday at 9 am to get a chance to meet their favorite Media
and Comic book Guest. The show then continues on thru the weekend and ending on Sunday at 5 pm.

 There was a lot to see and do at the event. Weather it be getting that picture taken and then signed by your favorite media guest or comic book creator.  You could also take in things like discussion panels where your icons had Q&A from their fans and allow them to ask any question and nothing was off topic.  As a guest you were also able to see comic books being draw right in front of your eyes as you walk down what we like to call artist row.  From there you also get a chance to buy the last comic book the creator along with the new graphic comic book style novel that a lot of them are creating.

It wasn’t just about the media guest and comic books. People also got to do some shopping at well to find that hard to find toys, old comic book, trading cards, movie props, poster, and costumes.

 On Saturday there was still plenty to do.  One thing of which was to take part in a 13 and up Costume Contest for those that wanted to dress up and come out to the event. It was then followed up on
Sunday with the kid’s day Costume Contest for 13 and under.

We was lucky enough to get a chance to talk to a few of these great superstar like while they was signing autographs for there fans like Jason David Frank who’s best know for his role as Tommy from the
Power Ranger series.

MotorcityComCon__20140518__16111

First off your reaction when meet him is wow I meeting my favorite superstar. As you get your photo sign or take your picture with him. He starts taking with you about your life and the show and what you
are all about.  Showing that he just a regular guy that got luck to be part of everyone life.  

When he ask what he thought of his fans:


Jason David Franks say “I am always happy to meet my fans and always surprise at the turnout that I get.”

He goes on saying that he is always up for meeting them and taking the time to talk with them about life, his show and what he doing now. He love it that even when fans can’t afford to come buy a photo that they just take the time to come and say hi and talk with him. He also isn’t afraid to take the time to help them out by giving them a sign autograph weather it be a photo of him self or one of his sticker. He wanted his fans to be a part of his life.  

He says, “ I live the support that my fans give me. If it wasn’t for them I wouldn’t be able to do what I love. I don’t do this for the money like you find that some superstars do.  I do it for the love of the fans and enjoy doing what I love. Along with seeing the fans and finding
out there life stories. I am always willing to hear the stories even if it a post on my website, facebook page or instagram.  (he is a social media junkie lol)

He jokily say’s that you just have to be careful with instagram cause he can tend to blow it up with post  and with my fans. I always try to respond to everyone that post or send me e-mail and all the responses are personally from me. You will always see me even when I am interacting with fans tweeting or sending a post or responding to an e-mail. I feel doing it my self that makes me happy.

 We also ask Jason David frank on if was able to see other part of the state of Michigan. 

He said that he love to but with time he wouldn’t be able to do. But he did go on to say he did want to get out to see some part of Detroit and that you just might see him out and about after the night was over with. 

Yes we did ask him about the rumor of a new power ranger movie and possibly being a part of it.

He say there nothing set in stone yet, but my fans are over whelm Lionsgate and Sabian entertainment to see me in it. So at the storing is being written I hoping that maybe I have a role in it. But what I would love to do for my fans is a dark green ranger series that is a bit different then my normal roll in the show. I would also love to do
a set of show telling fans where I was form the time I life to the show to when I show up at Dr Tommy Oliver in Dino Thunder. I feel that there is a lot left open even as they get ready to bring all of us power ranger back for the big Super Mega Force batter. Where you will get to see all the charter I played in the show. I will be only being suit up at the green ranger in it. But I would image though that I would be doing voice over for the other one. 

You also got to see Jason doing panel interview where fans can ask him question and get answer they like to know.
