But hopefully we can add a little humor into people’s social media feeds today.

This past weekend, the Geeky Family stopped by Fantasticon at the Birch Run Expo Center and met up with our friends from Ghost Busters Detroit.

Monday Morning Meme Me With Grayson For Sept 11th

Hello everyone.

September 11th is always a somber day. We will never forget how the events of 16 years ago changed our world forever.

cap america flag

While it is important to remember and reflect, I also want to make sure that your social media feeds have at least some humor in them today.

Continuing to enjoy life and find humor in it is one small way we can show the evil forces in the world that they will never keep our spirits down.

With that, on to this week’s Meme.

The Geeky Family visited the Great Lakes Comic-Con Halfway show in Madison Heights this weekend and , as always, we had a blast!

Our friends from the Detroit Ghostbusters were there once again and took the time for some photos with us! And from those pictures, we have this week’s Monday Morning Meme Me With Grayson!

Disabled Engineering Student May Be The Greatest Mad Max Cosplayer Ever!

Florida engineering student Ben Carpenter was born with spinal muscular atrophy but he is to awesome to let that keep him down.

He decided to convert his wheelchair into the best Mad Max cosplay we have ever seen!

Even Tom Hardy would be intimidated

This even tops Ian Pfaff’s Little Tykes toddler Mad Max Cosplay!

Unfortunately my son won’t get anything this creative from me…

To the back of his wheelchair, Ben can attach either a chariot or a buggy, depending on how much room the cosplay venue allows.

His friend Amy usually accompanies him in the buggy or chariot.

Somebody please get George Miller to write this kid into the Mad Max: Fury Road sequel!

The entire Geeky Family congratulates Ben on not letting his disability get in the way of being one kick-ass cosplayer!

Well done Ben!

Thank you Bored Panda for this find!

Side note: Check out the Black & Chrome edition of Fury Road! It’s awesome!

Your Awesome 80’s Childhood Toys Are Now In One Convenient Package!

Aww San Diego Comic-Con, I am always left in awe of your awesomeness.

No toy lines were more popular with boys in the 1980’s than Transformers, G.I. Joe and Mask! Well now they have all been brought together for a limited time!

The awesome people at Hasbro and their current comic book publishing partner IDW have teamed up to bring their new Revolution Toy set to the San Diego Comic-Con!

REVOLUTION Comic Action Figures CR: Hasbro

Revolution is an IDW’s comic book mega cross-over involving most of their licensed Hasbro properties, including Transformers, G.I. Joe, M.a.s.k. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), Visionairies and more.

REVOLUTION Comic Action Figures CR: Hasbro

Why is Command is spelled with a “K” and not a “C”, because when your Camaro IROC can fly and shoot lasers, you can do whatever the Heck you want! That’s why!

Mask Camaro
“Hey ladies. Can I give you a lift?”

The Revolution Toy Package features characters from Transformers, G.I. Joe, Visionaries, R.O.M., Micronauts, Action Man and M.A.S.K based off IDW’s Revolutions storyline. The package includes:

  • Transformers – Jetfire
  • GI Joe – Roadblock
  • MASK – Matt Tracker
  • Action Man – Action Man
  • Rom The Space Knight
  • Rom – Dire Wraith
  • Visionaries – Leoric
  • Micronauts – Assorted Minis
SDCC-Revolution-Set-01-1278x665
The Micronauts sure are “micro”

This new Revolution Toy Package will be debuting at San Diego Comic-Con for $99.99 but will also be available in limited supply at HasbroToyShop.com

Hellboy 66.6 Proof Cinnamon Whiskey Is Out In Time For Father’s Day!

I have always said, nothing says “I love you dad” like hard liquor and nothing says “I love you geek” more than comic book related merchandise.

Well now for Geeky Daddies you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone with the new Hellwater cinnamon whiskey! This micro distilled 66.6 proof corn whiskey is made with natural cinnamon flavoring and Smokey Mountain Spring water.

Hellwater is officially licensed through Darkhorse Comics and distributed by Prestige Imports.

The entire Geeky Family were at Motor City Comic Con this past weekend and one of the featured guest was Hellboy himself Ron Perlman!  My only regret is that I did not have a bottle of Hellwater with us for Perlman to autograph… and possible share a couple shots with.

“I could sure use a shot of Hellwater right now”

Hellwater is available here but you will need to be 21 or over: no sidekicks!

Geeky Daddy & The G-Man Visit Motor City Comic Con Day 3

Day 3 (Sunday) is the last day of the Motor City Comic Con and mostly known for children’s cosplay and as being the best day to score deals on merchandise, toys and those hard to find back issues needed to complete old runs or story arcs. In my case, it was the purchase of one of my comic book “Holy Grails”, Captain America #100 from April 1968! Yeah!

cap am 100
ohhh…yeah

You can view our articles about Motor City Comic Con Day 1 and Day 2 here.

I attend day 3 of conventions lone wolf (sans Geeky Mommie and Lil’ G) since they find me flipping through boxes of old comic books about as exciting as watching artificial grass grow. So I am behind the camera for all of today’s cosplay pics.

But let me get back on topic…

Harry Potter, Hermione & Hedwig

Cosplay wise, the heroes definitely outnumbered the villains today. Lots of Captain America’s created a very patriotic setting.

But the Empire did still have a strong presence.

We had plenty of heroes from the 80’s!

And some scary characters as well.

Plenty of sci-fi cosplay.

And lots of anti-heroes that blur the lines between good and evil:

All types of characters from TV, comics, movies and video games:

Here are a few of the highlights of my trip to Motor City Comic Con Day 3:

While walking around, I shared a wisecrack with a person walking just behind me. As we rounded a corner, I heard cheering and somebody yelling “Wheaton!” Turned out the person I was joking with was the bearded Wil Wheaton of Star Trek: The Next Generation and Big Bang Theory fame.

I was approached by a young lady and asked if I was single. For a moment I thought “Hey, Geeky Daddy’s still got it!”  Nope, turns out one of the start-ups at the show is an app for geeky dating and they wanted me to fill out a profile.

I bumped into the cutest little Wonder Woman at the show! Our good friends Chris & Sheila’s daughter Abby in full armor and looking tough! She actually is pretty tough too, having taking some classes at our local Krav Maga studio.

IMG_20170521_134946547
Abby can be very intimidating

I was unfortunately unable to stay for the kid’s cosplay contest, but based on what I saw walking around, I’m sure it would have been a great show!

Hope everyone has enjoyed my commentary of the 2017 Motor City Comic Con!

Geeky Daddy & The G-Man Visit Motor City Comic Con 2017 Day 2

Saturday (day 2) tends to be the busiest of the three days for the Motor City Comic Con and this year was no exception! At 3 p.m., the line for advance ticket holders to get in the door was still 500 people deep…easy!

There are a few reasons why Saturdays have the most visitors. The first obvious reason is that people are off work and their kids are out of school.

Another is that many media celebrities don’t arrive until Friday evening because they spend the week working on current television productions, movies or other projects. Once at the Con, some celebrities do so well selling autographs and photo shoots on Saturday that they simply prefer to head home Sunday and not spend the extra day away from their families.

Geeky Mommie, myself, G-Man and our good friend (& celebrity chaperone for the Con) John Carra.

It is always a little exhilarating to see stars such as Ron Perlman or Lou Ferrigno in person, but it is important to remember that, in most cases, they are regular “Fanboys” and “Fangirls” like the rest of us.

I remember a couple years ago at the Motor City Comic Con, I was looking at some He-man art at an artist booth when I overheard the person next to me negotiating a trade with the artist.  Turned out the gentlemen to my left was Cary Elwes (Princess Bride)!

He was on break from his own booth, so he put on a cap and was checking out the show. He was a fan of the artist and was trading some personalized autographed headshots made out to the artist’s daughter for some original sketches.

Pretty darn cool!

“As you wish.”

As I mentioned in my post about Day 1, my favorite part of any Con is the cosplay and the people watching!

So with this being Lil’ G-man’s first Comic Con, we knew we needed to have him in costume!

IMG_20170520_111703
Happily arriving at the Con

Plan A was for me to be dressed in Luke Skywalker gear and wear Lil’G on my back dressed as Yoda (ala ‘Empire Strikes Back’). Unfortunately, this morning G was not having it with the headgear (probably because it covers us his amazing hair), so we had to change plans.

“Fussy baby, I am.”

So Geeky Mommie and I pulled an audible and raided the basement’s Halloween cabinet for costumes. It was decided that a Ghostbuster and Mr. Stay Puft would be our alias’ today and it could not have gone any better!

Comic Con 2017
“He is sooo cute! Oh, and there is a baby too!”

We toured the convention center to the nonstop sounds of “What an adorable Mr. Stay Puft!”, “Look at the Mini Mr. Stay Puft!” and “Ahh..How cute!” The last comment I am assuming were mostly directed towards me and not G, but who knows…

We met the genie from Pee Wee’s Playhouse, who entertained Lil G with a fun game of Peek-A-Boo.

We had a quick interview with Nick Moretti of Comics, Beer & Sci-Fi, that should air sometime in the fall! Thanks Nick!

We met other real Ghostbusters (who put my store bought costume to shame).

We met multiple agents of the Empire.

Thankfully, there were also heroes there to keep us safe! Lil’ G loved all their lightsabers, so we know he’s for sure my kid!

We met a Guardian of the Galaxy (that Grayson wasn’t sure what to think of…)

And various other heroes & villains!

We even met a couple of real @$$holes…from ‘Spaceballs’

Who made that man a gunner?!?

Ever since we found out we were expecting a little Padawan, I had been looking forward to taking him (or her) to their first Comic Con! The experience of seeing all the vintage toys and Golden-Age comic book covers, the thrill of flipping through the $0.50 comic back issue boxes, and the camaraderie that all the cosplayers show to each other is something that must be experienced at least once.

Lil’ G-Man stayed awake for the whole event like a trooper but was fast asleep in his car seat before we even pulled out of the parking lot.

IMG_20170427_175229356
Shhh…The baby is sleeping.

Overall, I think the whole Geeky Family had a great day!

Stay tuned for notes on Motor City Comic Con 2017 Day 3!

Uncle Josh joined me on today’s trip to the ‘Con’ and Geeky Mommie and Lil G will be joining me tomorrow.

Around 200 comic book, collectible and vintage toy dealers, independent artists and writers, comic book and media celebrities and crafters were there to showcase their talents and inventory.

This was Uncle Josh’s first Comic Con and what I was most interested to introduce him to was the wonderful world of Cosplay! I described Cosplay to him as people who enjoy dressing up as their favorite characters.

He was confused at first, but as you can see from the pictures, caught on quickly!

We had a fun time and met an interesting and diverse cast of characters!

Can’t wait till tomorrow when Geeky Mommie and I take Lil’ G to his first Comic Con!

Stay tuned for more!

Updated 5/20/17 with more cosplay!
