The 2016 2nd Annual Great American Comic Convention


This past weekend, Las Vegas, NV hosted the 2nd Annual Great American Comic Convention from Dec 4-5th. It hosted many great guests including Mike Zeck “Spider-man, Aquaman, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, G.I.Joe.” Rikishi “WWE Hall of Fame Superstar”, John Romita Jr. “Amazing Spider-Man, Iron Man, Kick-Ass”, Frank Brunner “Dr. Strange, Howard the Duck, Conan.” As well as many others who were more then happy to share a story while signing your comics.

A few of the highlights from the weekend were the panels. I was able to attend Bob Camp: 25th Anniversary of Ren & Stimpy.  We were hoping to get a video shown, however due to technical difficulties the panel turned into a Q&A with Bob Camp who spent the hour retelling stories of how Ren & Stimpy began through the history of the franchise. The number one takeaway from Bob Camp was his take on Ren & Stimpy being Bert & Ernie…. Only Weirder! It was a very informative and funny panel.  This was followed by a Dr. Strange, Master of the Mystic Arts panel with Frank Brunner & Steve Englehart. It was a very informative panel on the early days of Dr. Strange comics in the Marvel Universe.

There were no shortage of cosplayers at the convention. From professionals like Christie Jay, @cuh_boom on IG, and AZ Power Girl Cara Nicole, @azpowergirl on IG, to many amateur cosplayers dressed as Rocket Racoon & Starlord, Negan and a couple of Spiderman’s.  The highlight had to be Jesus on a hover board who was there to promote Super Sonic Speed Dating which held an event on both days of the convention. Saturday evening concluded with the cosplay contest which was won by a DC Livewire, second place to Wonder Woman and third place to Lady Death who also helped create a Deadpool and Deathstroke costume for her family.

The Great American Comic Convention is a great convention for any fan who wants to be able to walk around, be able to talk to artists and take their time.  You don’t have the crowds of SDCC or DragonCon but you do have the heart of a comic convention. From the comics old and new to the toys and memoribilia down every aisle. There is something for collectors of all ages.  If you are in Las Vegas next year be sure to check out the 3rd Annual Great American Comic Convention.
