    I'll be at Tampa bay comic con on the 24th. Undecided on fanboy expo. Not sure if anybody on here is into horror movies, but I'll be at spooky empire in Orlando pretty much the whole weekend.

    I'll definitely be going to the Tamp Bay Comic Convention. The kids love it, I get some great deals there, usually stock up for the year between the discounted comics and bargaining on some bigger purchases... Kids under 12 free! Always been a great event IMHO :)

    I won't be set up at Tampa Con in August but will be back in 2014. I will have a 10 X 8 Corner Booth at FanBoy Expo. Stop by and say hello if you are attending the show.

    BTW, at Metrocon today I will be the guy in the giant Afro and bible dressed as Garterbelt from the anime "Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt". I'll probably be with a pirate and a tiny blonde dressed as Panty Anarchy. If you see us then come say hello. :D
