Check out these cool photos from my return trip to Astronomicon.
Mega Ran is one of the most prolific rappers in the realm of chip hop. Let’s not forget to mention that he is a record holder in the Guinness Book of Records too. I talk with the teacher, rapper, hero about a myriad of topics. We dive into anime, comic books, pro wrestling, the Nerdy People of Color Collective, and the upcoming collaborative Lit Hop album with MC Lars. Rock this in the background, folks. It’s a great interview.
Drunk on Comics is a weekly podcast that focuses on comics. I talk with the co-founder Tony McKay about comics, comics, and more comics. Plus, we talk about the podcast, favorite guests, con families, and a whole lot more in this very fun conversation. Put this on in the background like a……..podcast.
Jill Thompson is a multiple Eisner Award winning artist who’s work includes The Scary Godmother series, Beasts of Burden, Magic Trixie and Wonder Woman: The True Amazon. Seriously, her water color art is amazing. Of course, we talk about the Scary Godmother and Beasts of Burden. We also talk about manga, anime and pro wrestling. Being the huge wrestling fans that we are, we talked about pro wrestling for a solid half hour in this interview. I must note that we had to pause the interview while a young man and his father came up to the table to talk to Jill. Per Ms. Thompson’s request, the interview is left completely unedited. This was a wonderful interview and I hope that you check it out.
Astronomicon was a brand new pop culture convention, held in Sterling Heights at Wyndham Garden. Detroit Hip Hop duo Twiztid, were the masterminds behind the new event. Did the two rappers create an event that stood out in the huge sea of Michigan events? Or was it a first year event that stumbled right out of the gates? Read on to see what I experienced.
