    I’ll be headed with the family to the Convention in San Francisco…it’s actually near the airport which is barely 10 minutes from my house! And we’ll be bringing our 4 year old…I want him to be able to say later in life that he saw the Shat in person :) !

    I’d definitely avoid the Rhode Island comic con like the plague. If you do feel like going, do not waste your money on the VIP passes and don’t bother complaining to them about anything, as they will just say, “We’re addressing the issue, it’s just we’re new” even though they run another similar show that’s been going for a few years. Altered Reality Entertainment has experience in doing these shows, but they like to hide their name so you can’t point out that it is run by professionals instead of hobbyists/non-profits.

    Ethan Phillips isn’t going to be at Collectormania 20 anymore. But the others are.
