Utah Lego Users Group at Salt Lake Comic-Con

Salt Lake Comic-Con, Lego Users Group

One of the most impressive displays at the Salt Lake Comic-Con was the Utah Lego User’s Group massive tabletop scenes from various movies. The entire thing was fantastic. There were scenes fashioned after The Lord of the Rings, The Avengers, The Dark Knight, Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz, Jurassic Park, trains, and more.

Holy Havana! Cuba visits Comics A-Go-Go!

My regular visitors know that I love stats because I talk about it a lot. I pay attention to the page views and visitors I get. I pay attention to box office ticket sales. I “watch” basketball games by churning through rebounds, assists, points, blocks, minutes, games-without-injuries, and headbutts. I like survey results. I enjoy looking at sales trends at work. And the funny thing is I suck at math, so I don’t get where the infatuation with numbers comes from.

Statistics from Comics A-Go-Go!

One of the stats I love watching is the number of countries (and regions, territories, protectorates, etc.) that visit my blog. As of today, I’ve had visitors from 185 of the 241 entities identified by Flag Counter. If you paid attention to your geography lessons in school, you’ll know that the term “country” is a very loose term because there are certain areas that can’t be defined as autonomous but that do have a level of international recognition as viable political/economic entities. It would take a wiki page to go through all of the various definitions and lists of those geographical areas, and since this is a blog of massively irresponsibility, we’ll just leave off and say that over 75% of the planet has sent a representative to check out what on Earth is going on at Comics A-Go-Go!

The one that surprised me yesterday was Cuba. I had no idea that Cuba was connected to the outer world. I figured the SDE (Cuban secret police) “discouraged” that sort of thing. But, in the end, the brilliance of this blog cannot be suppressed. So, Juan Miguel Sanchez Miller De la Cruz, thanks for the visit. Hope you enjoyed the sexy cosplayers. Sorry to hear about your sentencing.

Incidentally, Africa, I’m still waiting for a bunch of your guys to climb on board. I have had a handful of visitors from some of the missing African countries since my whiny post on the topic, but there are still several of you to go.

Now, if I ever get a visitor from North Korea, I will be terrified. I figure there is no way that anyone in that god-forsaken hellhole could access the real world, so if I get a click from there, I know it is because I am under secret investigation for making fun of the Kims.  Should a fateful event befall me, I have left specific instructions that Justin Kirk take over my website. It’s only right.

Guardians of the Galaxy Comic-Con Poster

Guardians of the Galaxy movie logo

I snagged a Guardians of the Galaxy mini-poster at the Marvel stage/booth during SDCC 2013. Sadly, it got a bit creased here and there during the scuffle. Damn greedy fan boys pushing me around to grab shit and making it hard for me to do my own pushing and grabbing.

The poster is an exclusive promo from the Comic-Con and shows concept art by somebody or something named “Wen” for the upcoming 2014 release of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Anyway, it’s a slick one, so I scanned it and here you go. Yes, you can find the image elsewhere, but not as big as my scan. So suck it up and enjoy.

Here’s the poster as a line-up in a really big image.

33 Adorable Cosplay Girls at the 2013 Comic-Con

OK, I didn’t capture everyone with a costume at Comic-Con this year, but I gave it the ol’ college try and ended up with pictures of over 500 distinct cosplayers. I’ll be showing these in several posts over the next few days. Most of you are just here for the sexy pictures (and there are plenty of those so bookmark my site and come back), but there were a ton of incredible creative, stylistic, colorful, outrageous, etc. costumes.  I could fill up my blog with them for several weeks. But I’m lazy so I’ll group them into logical (maybe?) categories.

First up, who doesn’t love adorable girls? In my grand rush to gather pictures I didn’t pay much attention to the people themselves until I had time to sift through them last night. There were some darling ladies that were just too cute to leave in the huge pile of pictures, so I’ve pulled out the pictures of 33 Adorable Cosplay Girls at the 2013 Comic-Con. Here you go.
