Allison Goes to Comic Con

So this week on Fanundrums, we’re talking about Comic Con. Specifically the Salt Lake City Comic Con, which Allison attended last week.

Yep! I had the opportunity to make my Comic Con debut this last week in Salt Lake City. Kiersty wanted to hear about it, and we figured we’d tell you folks too.

So, Allison, let’s start off with this. What was your favorite thing about the Con and what was your least favorite thing?

Well, that’s a tricky thing. Overall, I’d say my favorite thing about the Con was the atmosphere. There are so many nerds there! And they all want to celebrate being nerdy! Sean Astin made a comment in his panel (I loved that panel) about how the nerd quotient at Salt Lake is high. We’re not a commercial Comic Con; we’re a bunch of nerds who want to enjoy being nerdy together. The result is a feeling of camaraderie between the nerds and it was exciting! The worst part was the crowds. I don’t like to have that many people around me, bumping into me, breathing my air….

Agreed. I have rarely felt the kind of community anywhere else that is present at fandom events. So, let’s maybe continue by talking about what you did. Panels, cosplay, etc.

The Ankh-Morpork City Watch as the Avengers

Welcome back to Fanundrums! This week, we’re talking about Discworld and the Marvel Universe. Specifically, the City Watch and the Avengers.

Because, let’s be honest, there’s too much in both those worlds to cover in one post.

Which is why we’ve spent probably … I don’t know how many hours geeking out over both of them, separately and together. Here, we present a small, specialized portion of our geeking out for your enjoyment.

Welcome to our blog, Fanundrums! I’m Kiersty.

And I’m Allison.

You may be wondering why we asked you here tonight… (or whatever time of day it happens to be when you read this.) Well, allow us to explain.

It’s because we’re geeks and we like to talk about it.

Basically. Well, that was a short explanation. Let us specify which geeky things we enjoy talking about. The short answer is “everything!” The long answer is… longer. Supernatural, Gravity Falls, Dr. Who, The Dresden Files, Star Wars, Discworld, hmm, what else… Agents of SHIELD, Sherlock, Kim Possible, LOTR, Marvel Universe, DC Universe, Merlin, Phineas and Ferb, Warehouse 13, Psych, etc.

As you can see, we adhere to many different fandoms.
