Rose City Comic Con: Brief Thoughts

I'm way to behind at home and work to do a really lengthy blog post about my time spent at RCCC this last weekend so I thought I'd just write up a paragraph or two about it. Look for something with more words and pictures and umm... more pictures later this week.

First things first, I had a blast. Attending a new convention in a different city by myself was occasionally overwhelming and a bit lonely but if I had to rate the entire experience I'd give it a 10 out 10. The people in Portland were super nice, everyone at the convention was nice and all the pros I met were so fantastic. I hope I get to go back next year and this time I'll probably try to bring the family with me. If not the entire fam, maybe just my son.

Rose City is a bit smaller than Emerald City but from my perspective that was a plus. It was big enough to attract good celebrity guests and comic book professionals while being small enough to actually get around easily. The aisles were wider, there was more open space and the lines were very well managed. The Portland convention center is was easier to navigate than the Seattle convention center. The maps they had drawn up weren't great but after walking around the place once it was really easy to get your bearings and find stuff. Also two big thumbs up to the Doubletree Hotel in Portland. Clean modern rooms, comfy beds, walking distance to the convention center and the nicest staff. The water pressure in the shower could have been a bit better but I'll let them slide on that one.

Since this was my first out of town convention I tried to do a few things I normally skip out on. I went to more panels (even watched a live podcast recording), bought more comic books I'd never heard of, and attended an after hours Cosplay contest. I also broke my no standing in line more than 5 minutes policy by like an hour. I'm not sure if I'll do that one again...

In close here's my favorite signature I collected this weekend.
