Matthew's First Comicon

My First Comicon

A Turtle Fan’s Dream Come True

While I have been to a couple conventions of a similar variety, I had not yet been close enough to a comic convention that contained much of anything I cared to pay for. A few months ago, I saw it announced that TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman would be in Raleigh at the NC Comicon and there were early bird tickets that included Eastman exclusive perks such as early seating for panels and extra signatures. I immediately bought one as a birthday present to myself, but I really didn’t need an excuse.

Good Bye 2015

New York Comic Con 20152015 has come to it’s end and what a year it has been.  From the good to the bad, this year has kept us going in circles with family health, moving, and traveling.  There was always something going on to keep me busy. All the while, I never forgot about Cowabunga Corner or really took a true break from trying to do stuff for the site.  Here’s a look back at Cowabunga Corner for 2015. 

Review: Youmacon 2015

Halloween weekend has always been one of my favorite weekends of the year.  Growing up, it was for the Holiday.  I loved dressing up in costumes, seeing other people in costumes and the free candy.  I enjoyed the events and just getting to be out in public with the costumes my dad made.  In 2004 I thought that was all going to change for me, as I got hurt at work on October 26th only to find that wearing costumes was a no go.  That was one of the worse Halloweens of my life, as I realized just what I lost from my injury.  In 2005, I had no time to think about Halloween as I was in Vegas on Ha

Review: New York Comic Con 2015

Every year I try to make it out to New York Comic Con.  This is the second time where I did not think I was going to make it for the event, until the last month.  New York Comic Con is a huge event filled with panels, dealers, and guests.  For Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans it’s become one of the best events to go too for a yearly dose of Turtle fun.  Here is my review of New York Comic Con 2015.

ScareFest 2015 Convention Review

ScareFest is a convention in Lexington, KY for Paranormal and Horror fans.  2015 saw it’s eighth event, though it didn’t seem to be the powerhorse it has been in the last few years. In previous years, ScareFest had such a crowd that it was impossible to walk around inside the Lexington Convention Center, granted the space is not incredibly large, but it is fine for a small convention. Last year and the year before, I thought ScareFest had outgrew the convention center, though this year, it seemed to be the perfect size.

Review: Motor City Comic Con 2015

In 1997 I learned of Motor City Comic Con.  Since that year, I have been going every year to this local event.  Most years there are no real Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles connection, so it’s not the guest that I go for, I go for my friends.  For the past 10 years, I get in by helping friends at a booth, so I can enjoy this convention.  As long as I am in Michigan, during Motor City Comic Con, I will attend.  Here is my review for Motor City Comic Con 2015.

Lexington Comic Con: Saturday

Lexington Comic Con is an up and coming convention that has been growing yearly for the last few years. It originally started out as an idea as a Power Rangers convention for the creator’s son, though it developed into something more. While it brings in a lot of Power Ranger guests, including those from the original Japanese version, Lexington Comic Con also brings in a multitude of other talent from movie stars to voice actors to comic artists. Lexington Comic Con works to entice the crowd in every way possible.

Comic Con International 2014: TMNT Movie Panel

 

NYCC 2009 4Kids TMNT

 

New York City Comic Con is going on this weekend.  If you’re not there today, you’re missing out on the Nickelodeon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel.  Thanks to some good friends, I will be at New York Comic Con to cover this event for Cowabunga Corner.  While waiting for that panel to be shared here, we want to make sure our viewers have something to keep them in the spirit of New York.  Which got me to go through my old video footage of New York Comic Con to look for something us Turtle fans can respect.  For my throwback of the event, I found a video taken in 2009 of the “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animators Panel”. 

Comic Con International: TMNT 30th Anniversary Panel

 

Comic Con International 2014 came and went so fast this year.  With so much going on, I have not been able to share all the awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles events that went on over that weekend.  This year Comic Con went TMNT crazy with panels worth going too all weekend long.  The new movie was in Hall H, the Turtle Power Doc was held that same day, followed by Playmates Toys, Nickelodeon, and the 30th Anniversary Panel.  I want to share a full rundown of the weekend, though going to work my way up to that by sharing the panels first.  This here is the TMNT 30th Anniversary Panel.
