  1. very awesome interviews 

  2. That was an awesome con.

     how many other members of the ifanbase made it to the show?

  3. I need more Conor !!!!!!

  4. i was there

  5. Yes, please.

  6. Yo-Gabba Gabba ending for the win.

    Get ready josh, that green thing is gonna haunt your dreams soon. 😉 

  7. @TNC bummer. you beat me to it.

    Ron’s having fun isn’t he? 

  8. Those Threadless tees look like a must buy.

  9. Never thought I would ever hear . . .

     "each shirt stands alone, you don’t need to the other shirts to get the whole story" (paraphrasing)



  10. Great show, guys! Not even Ron’s Jedi mind tricks are enough to get Geoff Johns to reveal his secrets.

  11. @selftitled I made it down for a few hours

  12. Quality show, looking forward to part 2.  Ken Burns wants all your b-roll from past cons.  I hear his new project is ‘Ken Burns’ Stormtroopers’.

     Also- I hope the Threadless dude made it to the restroom.  He seemed to be doing the ‘I gotta pee’ dance behind Ron.


  13. That Hickman interview was fantastic (no pun intended).  I am really liking his FF stuff, and I had suspected the bullet points were just a way to skip past less interesting story and speed us to something more engaging.  I am going to have to check out some of the other things he mentioned as well.

  14. I was there! I met Conor and Ron!

  15. Oh snap! That’s ME getting inked!


  16. Cameo!

  17. I was there as well, it was a good time.  It was cool to meet Conor and Ron and thanks again for the t-shirt!!!

  18. Where was Conor looking during the GameFly plug?  Eyes front and center, sir!  You can look for the Yo Gabba Gabba characters later 🙂

  19. I’m gonna go out on a limb here, and say it was a girl.

  20. Most likely an iFanbase member’s girlfriend/wife.

  21. Dan DiDio pronouncing Hawkman like it was the name of his Jewish neighbor caught me off guard and had me howling with laughter. 

  22. @selftitled: I was there in two fashions one as a fan and another as a volunteer, which was an amazing experience.  If you saw the 6’6 guy with a Blackhawks hat with the volunteer shirt it was me.  Met some great people including Ron and Connor, hope more come next year!

  23. Great show guys, but why till next week for part 2?  🙁

  24. Because we do one show a week, because it takes a lot of work and time.

  25. Art Baltazar is so awesome. 

  26. I don’t understand the people who like to dress up like Stormtroopers. They’re basically the Nazis of the SW universe. And they suppress their individuality. What’s good or cool about emulating jackbooted sheep?  

    Boba Fett, I get.
