I must first begin by apologizing for the lateness of this post. I had meant to post it sooner, but as soon as I got home from the show I became so swamped that I was never able to write about it. Please don’t take the 2 week buffer between the end of the show and my post as any indication relating to my feelings on the show.
As it turns out, Amazing Las Vegas Con has to be one of the most fun I have ever been able to have in 110 degree heat.
Held at the Las Vegas convention center, this 4 year old show surprised me in many ways. It’s size was the first thing I noticed. For being one of the smaller shows I have been to, it managed to stay busy for all 3 days. Due in part to names such as Kevin Eastman, Tony Fleecs, Stan Lee, Rob Liefeld, Peter Mayhew, Mat Nastos, and Ray Park, it isn’t hard to see why.
There were plenty of cosplayers out as well. Another surprise to me as the extreme outside heat had me feeling bad for anyone in a huge costume. Luckily the convention center was attached to the Westgate Hotel so hopefully people were able to keep cool.
Justin White of ZKS and Necrosapien Press had a booth out there. Here is what he had to say about the show:
Overall I’d have to say that this was one of the best shows that I had been to. I am hoping that we can get Forbidden Panel out to the next show so that we can partake in this Amazing event.
