    Megacon '09 Con Report
    Tuesday, March 10, 2009

    Hey, cats and kittens! I'm over the con plague and prepared to report on Megacon 09!

    Megacon was held in sunny Orlando Florida from Feb. 27th-March 1st. This was my first trip down to Orlando for Megacon, so I went in really excited! Special thanks to the folks over at Comic Geek Speak for letting me crash on their floor!

    Panels:

    First off, panels! The only panels I attended were the daily DC Nation meetings. The first day featured Dan Didio and Jimmy Palmiotti discussing their career in comics and chatting with the fans. I had a ton of fun. Both Jimmy and Dan are very engaging, funny guys who really care about the fans, and it shows.

    The second meeting, on Saturday, featured an expanded panel of Dan Jurgens, Billy Tucci, Jimmy Palmiotti, Dan Didio, George Perez, and Ethan Van Sciver. The meeting started off with a very special event: George Perez birthday! In fact, Dan Didio read out a document from the mayor of Orange County Florida, proclaiming that day George Perez Day!


    George gave a great speech thanking the fans, Dan, and especially his wife for supporting him throughout his career. The crowd went crazy! Then, as an added bonus, Dan noticed that someone in the back of the room might be able to help George celebrate his special day:

    George told the audience that when he and Marv Wolfman were creating Starfire, it was their fervent hope that some lovely young lady would dress up as Starfire and show up to a con. Well, this certainly fits the bill!

    Mega Con 2009: Talking to George Perez

    Perez and his Proclamation

    Perez and his Proclamation

    This year at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida—the special guest of honor was none other than the legendary comic book artist, George Perez. During the DC Universe panel on Saturday afternoon, DC Comics Executive Editor, Dan Didio, presented Perez with an official proclamation from the Mayor of Orange County Florida, Richard Crotty, stating that February 28th, 2009 was officially ‘George Perez Day’. Perez took the time to thank his fans and colleagues as well as meet and greet two fans dressed as characters he had made popular during his career—Wally West and Starfire. Over the course of the weekend, Perez provided auctioned sketched artwork to help raise money for the Heroes Initiative.

    Newsarama sat down with George Perez on Sunday as the convention began to wind down to talk about his award, his career, and the next healthy 35 years of his career as a comic industry legend.

    Newsarama: First off, let’s talk about ‘George Perez Day’ yesterday in Orlando. What was your reaction to that?

    George Perez: Well, to say that I was blown away is an understatement. Not only was I surprised by [the award] but I was totally impressed by how many of my friends—and, of course, my wife—knew about it for weeks now; I had absolutely no clue. It was a very big surprise and my wife was there—I’ve won awards before but she’s rarely at conventions with me—so I was able to thank her publicly for all of her support and everything she’s done for me in all of our years of marriage during my career.

    MegaCon 2009 Day 2 Floor Report
    By Todd H. Latoski posted: 01 March 2009 03:06 pm ET


    Dressed in costumes of their favorite heroes or shorts and t-shirts, fans filled up the Orange County Convention Center again today to see their favorite comic creators and television and movie stars as MegaCon 2009 rolled into its second day. The turn out was much larger than expected, and the lines for tickets sales were quite long. Inside, there was excitement in the air, and the floor was abuzz with news.

    With this year’s guest of honor, George Perez, as well as Dan Jurgens and Dan DiDio, The Hero Initiative booth has had lines all weekend. The first ever federally chartered, not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping comic book industry veterans who may need assistance with necessities or simply a helping hand back into the comics industry, The Hero Initiative has become an annual staple at MegaCon, and the fans always flock to their booth.

    Tabitha Johnson was excited about this year, talking about Friday’s “Lunch with Sketches” winners from e-bay, who bid to win a lunch and sketch from Perez and the two Dans.

    They also held their Hulk signing for their Hulk 100 special with 100 different drawn covers like those that they did with Spider-Man last year (some of the Hulk covers were on display at MegaCon last year). Today, George Perez and Dan Jurgens were at the booth all day signing, sketching, and talking with fans.

    The Hero Initiative also hosted the DC Universe panel, where Perez was given a very special surprise, in that Saturday, February 28, 2009 was declared by the County as “George Perez Day” in Orange County! Talk about a worthy tribute to a living legend! Sunday will see Perez and Dan DiDio at the booth all day. Johnson did admit that some MegaCon attendees were upset that the art auction usually held in Orlando each year was held at New York Comic Con this year, which raised for the Initiative a considerable sum of needed funds. They sold nearly everything they had, so they are ready to accept art donations for next year’s auction!

    Mega Con: Day One From the Floor

    It was a sunny 70 degrees as Orlando welcomed back the Southeast’s premier comic convention today – MegaCon. And despite the tight budgets and  economic concerns, there was still a line for tickets around the bend and out the door. Comic, anime, and sci-fi fans from all over weren’t about to let this  show pass them by. Back in its old venue in the original Orange County Convention Center building, Mega Con 2009 boasted more space and a better layout than last year.

    (excerpt)

    Another MegaCon regular, Brian Pullido, was present and accounted for, promoting not only his Lady Death work, but also his new movie, The Graves. He reminded fans that 2009 marks Lady Death’s 15th anniversary, which first appeared in 1994. To celebrate, he had three Lady Death exclusives – Lady Death #1 Blood Edition, limited to 200 copies; Lady Death Moments #1 – MegaCon Edition, limited to 169 copies; and Lady Death Visions #1 with a George Perez cover signed by Perez [reported in error]. He did have seven new Lady Death stories through Avatar Comics, but he was unsure as to when those books would hit the shelves. He quickly moved on to his most exciting news, the movie he wrote and directed – The Graves, starring Bill Moseley, Tony Todd, Amanda Wyss, and D. Randall Blythe. He had a preview airing all day at his booth, and announced he should have it ready to go on the film festival circuit soon. Fans curious about this new horror flick can find more info at www.thegravesmovie.com.
