Face Front, Fans!
I was honored to see so many of my loyal Brigadiers at the 4th Annual Comikaze Expo!
I realize, however, that some of my most steadfast supporters couldn’t make the trip to the Los Angeles Convention Center to play a part in the hijinks – So, I figured I’d take the time to share some of my favorite moments from the weekend.
First, no comic convention is complete without an assortment of amazing outfits, and I would expect that any show bearing my name would only bring out the best in the cosplay community… Thankfully, I was not let down. Whether they were dressed as one of my own characters, characters from other comics I enjoy, or even dressed up as yours truly (talk about a strange getup!), the costumes at Comikaze really raised the bar! It always warms my heart to see all the passion and love people have for comics and their characters, but this weekend fans really put their best foot (or heel, or hoof, or paw) forward.
Then, there were all the panels and presentations that your Generalissimo got to attend and speak on (with some other terrifically talented people). From waxing astrological about my upcoming novel Zodiac during the Disney panel, to sharing the main stage with global rock icon Yoshiki on Sunday – being at Comikaze to personally share all of the great news I have with the attentive and exuberant audiences is something I look forward to all year, and I couldn’t have been more pleased with how the panels turned out.
One of the most memorable moments happened at the LiveJournal booth on Saturday. In front of a crowd of hundreds of friends and fans, I officially announced a global contest to find my biggest fan! I have met so many of my “biggest fans” over the years at conventions and on the streets, but I felt it was about time to track down the real deal. If you want to know how you can get on the radar, just click on the contest section at the top of my LiveJournal page.
Maybe after this one is finished, I will start a search for my smallest fan…
So there you have it! With another captivating and crowd-pleasing Comikaze in the can, it’s time for me to get back to work creating new exciting superheroes - but be sure to enter the contest and stay tuned to my LiveJournal for more exciting stories soon!
Until next time - Excelsior!
