MegaCon 2012

February 23, 2012  |  by Dipz  |  Comics, Features, gallery  |  No Comments

Welcome to MegaCon 2012! We’re absolutely impressed with the tremendous growth since last year’s Convention; Not only did it seem we had more room to play at the Orange County Convention Center here in Orlando, Florida, but the guest list was swollen with more than plenty of the entertainment industry’s hottest talents! Three days of this Convention were simply not enough to absorb the action going on under this roof!

MegaCon is well established as the largest comic book, anime, sci-fi and fantasy convention in the South East of the United States. This annual event is recommended for EVERYONE. This year’s MegaCon was extraordinary and definitely not worth missing.

Vendors flourished across the floor with amazing collectibles and trademark iconic items with, as cliché as it sounds, ‘something for everybody’! From rare key comic books, memorabilia, and clothing to imported candy, anime, and costume props.

MegaCon always has had a great lineup of floor actors, artists and writers, but this year seemed to host plenty more than the previous year, which made great for attendees to interact with their favorite talents and creators. The enormous list included world-renowned writers and artists such as David Finch and J. Scott Campbell, growing stars like Lauren Cohan (Walking Dead), as well as up-and-coming writer Ryan Sohmers (Gutters) and local superhero squad Fierce Comics!

Deep within the penciled jungles of the artist alley, you could find yourself falling in love with original content from artists of anime, industry leading comic art, independent creators, or just general real life tributes of beautiful people.

The panels set up at MegaCon were very central themed and amazing. One of our favorites was ‘DC Comics: The New 52’, in which DC’s Co-Publisher Dan Didio led a discussion on the new changes which brought DC Comics to the head of the industry last year! Other attending panelists included Greg Capullo, Tony Bedard, and Jimmy Palmiotti. During the finale, fans rushed the stage to shake hands and share words with the guests! Coincidentally just outside the room, a DC Comics themed photoshoot was happening in which Dan Didio joined fellow DC veteran George Perez.

Another favorite panel was the ‘Q & A with Legendary Stan Lee’. Jimmy Palmiotti joined Stan Lee at his request in assisting with moderating, even though Stan “The Man” could handle it well all by himself! The room was very quiet for most of the time while Stan spoke with answers from his heart. His jokes broke the silence many times to ease the tension of everyone hanging on to his words. Stan recently launched his official website which has constant updates: The Real Stan Lee.

And what about the people? Many attendees dressed up in costume play (“cosplay”) to pay homage to their favorite characters and share their joy and passion in a walking visual display. You can’t help but smile and ask for someone to take a picture with you, to later share with your family and friends on what an awesome event this was!

As we said before if you weren’t here, you simply MISSED OUT… but we’ve got you covered!

Check out our FULL photo gallery (click) for even more images from the event!

Our very special thanks go to:
-ALL the supporting staff at MegaCon for putting together incredible event.
-Coliseum of Comics for a lunch opportunity with DC Comics’ Dan Didio.
-POW! Entertainment for always providing us best spots for Stan Lee events.
-iAM 3D Group for front row seats at their booth for creator signings.

TunerLife 2012 Tour @ UTI Campus

February 13, 2012  |  by Dipz  |  Automotive Events, Car & Misc., Features, gallery  |  No Comments

State of Stance has teamed up with UTI, Scion, Meguiar’s, and Tjin Edition to bring to us the TunerLife Tour 2012. Yesterday, February 11th, marked the first day and official launch of the 5-city tour expected to bring out many vendors, hundreds of cars, and most importantly thousands of fans! The next stops, in chronological order, will be Dallas, Houston, Boston and Chicago. The event itself couldn’t have been on a better day in Florida: mid 60′s and full, sunny skies just before the state being hit with a cold front. You couldn’t help but feel overcrowded when trying to park in the main show area, even though outside overflow had plenty of different spots and still showcased many beautiful cars that came late. Cars came as early as 8:00am when the show was scheduled to begin at 10:00am. This was easily one of the biggest events of the year so far with many cars from various scenes such as VIP, domestic, and Because Racecar status.

A Comic Shop presents: Triforce Mike Tribute

February 9, 2012  |  by Dipz  |  Comics, gallery, News  |  1 Comment

This is an updated continuation and conclusion to a previous post we reported to you (click). What we didn’t report last week (beyond Mike’s passing) was revealed by his mother: While Triforce Mike was held on life support, his family was advised he would make the perfect candidate to be an organ donor. A variety of surgeons were flown in to to spread his loving insides. Thanks to a powerful selfless decision by his family on his behalf, Mike’s heart, lungs, liver, and other vital organs were donated and have now helped give hope and new life to patients near their own deaths. Very incredible and great news!

Furthermore, last week a memorial was held at A Comic Shop in regards to the passing of our dear friend and fellow geek, Mike ‘Triforce Mike’ Pandel.

Overnight flowers were left at his employer’s front door in a makeshift Steve Jobs style to be discovered next day by the staff. This was a great way to start the very first day of life without Mike. As the day went on, more items began to be added to the flowers and we’re positive there’s alot more items there now!

Mike’s personal belongings and treasures were placed in a section of the Geek Easy for viewing and admiring. Its amazing how iconic garments, effects, and accessories can identify you so clearly and make you stand out even when your body isn’t present! Mike was well known for his red Converse sneakers as you’ll see his influence in another photo below.

An open mic session was held for friends, fans, and family members of Triforce Mike, with the keynote stories being delivered by his Pony sisters, Ninja Turtle girlfriends and, best of all, his heavy hearted Triforce mom. We learned that Mike’s bicycle was given by his mother as a hand-me-down, which also means there are literally thousands of miles on the bike frame! Mike’s mom also reassured the teary eyed crowd that he passed away doing something he loved. Alot of Mike’s confidence and aura radiated from his mother, and we all felt from her the same essence that Mike gave off.

The staff at A Comic Shop, a close-knit family, soon saw themselves put into leadership roles in lieu of the situation. They rose up to the challenge of peer counseling and healing. Countless hugs were issued. Many shirt sleeves were soaked. But with every sniffle and sob came a hopeful, relieving smile because we know Mike is in a better place and would never want us sad or upset of his presence. We commend our friends at A Comic Shop for being the frontrunners of this challenging road to recovery and healing. Thank you for being there for us!

Many, many, many supporters came out to show insane, gratuitous amounts of love. A few attendees even appeared to be dressed in Triforce Mike’s traditional dress code; for those of you who don’t know what that is: black t-shirt, blue jeans, and red Converse sneakers. I lost count after seeing so many red shoes, but it felt good to know that almost everyone admired Triforce Mike as a fashionable expert!

In the aftermath, I’m left feeling uncomfortably vulnerable. I would have never thought that I would meet someone so fun to be around, and so soon after God would ask them, young and healthy, to come home early. Everyone strives to be remembered in the massive doses of joy that Mike has been to us.

Life is short.
Don’t ever stop loving it.
And don’t you dare stop having fun.

As far as event coverage goes, photog Ryan from Ryan G. Poirier Photography was on site doing his thing. Ryan is very familiar with the staff and owners at A Comic Shop, and previously did their promotional marketing and photoshoot. Peep his coverage photos (click) from that memorable night!

50th Anniversary – Rolex 24 Hours (Part 2)

February 4, 2012  |  by four  |  Automotive Events, Car & Misc.  |  No Comments

This is the second installment of my Rolex 24 hours coverage. I have over 1000 pictures taken – but I feel without actually telling you what each individual picture is from or what time of day, it really doesn’t make sense to post a 600 panning shots, So instead I just picked through a few and put them together for a post. Sorry for the extremely long post – but I wanted to get out a good sample size.
