TODAY'S 'MAIN FEATURE':
It's NOT really a "Spotlight On...Geek Say What?" blog post today, but as much as an advance notice as possible that the hosts are playing their 1st Radio Show tonight!
Tina and I met them as a group for the first time at last Saturday's Long Beach Comic Con Expo, and of course I remembered two of them from the October 2009 Inaguaral Long Beach Comic Con, as we were all up close for the Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!
However, I wasn't aware of this upcoming radio show until they told me this past Saturday.
After becoming Facebook Friends with all of them, I realized that they had a Facebook Fan Page, and was 'invited' to their 1st Facebook 'Event' Page, which I am going to post the link here for you to check out!
First, all three of them are students at Cal State Fullerton. Which reminded me of my family's connection to that school. For those of you that have attended the school, or know the area, the red house with the garage that looks like a barn, used to belong to my dad's brother and his wife!
Anyways, tonight is the big night for Cole, Alix, and Jason.
Here is the link to click to be 'taken' to the 'Event':
Geek Say What? - Our First Show!
Second, I'm not for sure what they are going to be 'covering' in this inagural show, nor upcoming ones, but their enthusiasm for this venture really 'showed' when I met them (again) at the LBCC Expo!
So I at least wanted to mention their 1st Show, plus give you a 'heads up' that it is happening tonight. There should be a podcast afterwards, if you miss it.
For more info on that, and their upcoming radio shows, feel free to check out their Facebook Fan Page, and 'join' up if this is your thing!
Here's the link to their Facebook Fan Page:

My thanks to Cole, Alix, and Jason for coming up to Tina and myself at the LBCC Expo on Saturday, and telling us about their new venture on radio! Good luck to you all on this 1st Show, and hopefully many more!

In today's "Main Feature" I stated that it wasn't a "Spotlight On..." post.
However, in this "Featurette" section today I am posting what could be considered a "Mini Spotlight" on a great comics creator and his family!
That's because Tina and I met them in person at last weekend's Long Beach Comic Con Expo in Artists Alley!
That comics creator would be Mike Mignola, along with his wife Christine Beatty Mignola and daughter Katie, as pictured below!
I've said it a couple of times earlier this week, but again.. What was neat about the recent LBCC Expo was that it was large enough to have comics creators there of Mike's caliber, yet small enough that Tina and I could talk for a while with each creator, and in this case with their family also!
My thanks to both Mike and Christine, who are actually both Facebook Friends of mine for the time they spent with us and for posing for the photos! I hope you both and Katie had a Great Time at the Expo!
Tina and I can't always keep in stock Mike's publications at our own online store at http://www.ComicBooksCircus.com. But you know... It was really more neat to see him, Christine and Katie at this more intimate setting than to talk about his work there.
I'll be sending a link of this post to Christine, who is also their Business Manager, to see what link she would like this post to 'point to'.
In the meantime, here is what I understand to be the 'Official Web Site' for 'Hellboy':
If it isn't, I'll change it after hearing back from Christine!
Because of great one-on-ones visits with comics greats like Mike along with his family; Tina and I are looking forward to the upcoming 2nd Annual Long Beach Comic Con. That's the 3 day event at the end of October 2010.
Here's a link to the Con's Facebook Fan Page, so you can be interactive with them between now and October:
There you can also find out who's going to be there as guests, and links to where YOU can purchase advance tickets!
Tina and I are definitely booking October 29th thru the 31st! I suggest that if YOU are in SoCal area during that time, that You should drop in at Least ONE of those Days!
Talking about comics and comic cons: if YOU are a comics creator, (writer, penciler, inker, colorist, letterer, etc.), OR even a Comics / Magazine Publisher, feel free to contact me regarding YOUR works for a possible mention / review!
I've made a special blog post about: "How To Best Submit YOUR Publication For Possible Review!" for those creators / publishers that would like to possibly have their publications mentioned or reviewed, which could either be published in the 'Main Feature' or 'Featurette' sections.
