We’re not doing as many cons this Spring as we have sometimes in the past, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be out in the world! The three of us are going to be hitting up a couple of cons in the upcoming weeks, and we want to make sure you know where we’ll be.
First off, all three of us will be at two different cons in April:
Karoshi Con – April 8, 2017
Northern Illinois University – Dekalb, IL
No Brand Con – April 21-23, 2017
Chula Vista Resort – Wisconsin Dells, WI
It’s unknown if we’re doing a live show at either event, though there will be (at the very least) “secret podcasts” recorded at both events. Also, you will find Gen and I (Trae) in the Artist Alley at both events, and Nick helping his wife’s table at Karoshi.
I will also be on my own at the INDYpendent Show in Indianapolis, IN on Sunday, April 2nd. The INDYpendent Show is a small press and independent comics show held in conjunction with Who’s Yer Con, and admission is free.
On this episode we mourn the passing of Admiral Ackbar himself Erik Bauersfeld, rejoice in the LEGO Batman movie trailers, and question the petition to bring the R rated cut of Batman v Superman to theaters. We also jump straight into the con scene, remembering the Twin Cities’ closing Thunderbird Hotel, comment on the cancellation of yet ANOTHER Yourminicon event, lament issues with this year’s Karoshi Con, and celebrate Who’s Yer Con and the INDYpendent Show for being awesome.
So we know it’s a tad last minute, but did you know you could spend Sunday, April 3rd with either Nerd & Tie’s Nick Izumi or me (Trae Dorn)? Well, you can! Both Nick and Trae are going to be at two different events at the same time — in two different cities!
Nick will be at Karoshi Con at Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, IL. You can find him in the vendor room at the Ineffective Carnivore table, and I’m certain he’d love to see you. Ask him how his wedding was (spoilers: it was awesome).
I (Trae) will be elsewhere, down at the Spring INDYpendent Show in Indianapolis, IN. Held in conjunction with Who’s Yer Con at the Wyndham West Hotel and Convention Center, I’ll be selling comics and doing demos on Sunday. I will also tell you about Nick’s wedding if you want, but I’m not sure why you’d ask me.
So yeah, it’s all very exciting. For those of you who want to see us in the same place though you’ll have to wait a little longer… and by that I mean two weeks when No Brand Con comes around in the Wisconsin Dells.
On this episode of Nerd & Tie, we talk about the announcement of a new Star Trek TV series, MST3K’s Kickstarter return, ‘His Dark Materials’ being adapted by the BBC, NekoCon going insane, the amazing INDYpendent Show, and how Nick and Pher and going to Daisho Con.
Just a quick note that Trae will be at The INDYpendent Show in Indianapolis this Sunday (November 15th) at the Airport Radisson from 10am-5pm. Admission is only $4 ($2 for students) and you should totally come.
On this episode of the podcast, some MRAs have been kicked out of Calgary Expo, Syfy is ditching wrestling, Wonder Woman is switching directors, we’ve got a whole mess of new trailers to discuss, Trae went to the INDYpendent Show and we talk about our plans for No Brand Con next weekend!
And Pher got sick last minute, so he isn’t here. It’s just Trae and Nick.
And Trae had to quick edit the episode’s title card, much to Pher’s sadness.
On this episode, we talk about three conventions (Kitsune Kon, Karoshi Con and The INDYpendent Show), Shaq Fu 2, first looks at Gotham, set photos from Age of Ultron, the new Ninja Turtles Trailer, and we let Nick talk about Gundam.
