A TerrifiCon Prelude ~~ A "Comical Wednesday" Post


My very first visit to TerrifiCon, the convention held each summer at Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut, consisted of only a handful of hours in 2017. I walked away with signsatures from four comic book professionals whose work I'd seen during the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and/or 1990s. (I told about my experiences here and here.)

Last year -- that's 2018, in case you're not keeping track -- I obtained one or mire signatures from fifteen different comic pros. And I reallllly went overboard as far as posting about it. Rather than a two-part post, it was a five-part post! (Here, here, here, here, and here!)

And this year? Well, this year, I intend to double that amount of celebrity autographs. That plus-or-minus thirty count of signators will include both comic professionals and a few media types (actors and voice-over artists, that is).

And in case you're wondering, this year's "report" on TerrifiCon will emphatically not give details about all the people whose signatures I obtain. So no, it will not be a ten-part post. I promise.

Now I'm going to shut up and just throw photos at you of those who -- as of June 11th -- I intend to bug for their autograph. First I'll show the comic pros, in alphabetical order, then the media guests, in alphabetical order as well. I've made a few larger than the rest. (Those are the ones whom I personally am really excited about!) Feel free to click on any that interest you for a closer look.

See you at the bottom!
























And now, the media folk!







Thanks for your time!

  1. A long post, but a relatively quick read! Who'da thunk it?

  2. That photo of Val Kilmer must be a really old one. He certainly doesn't look like that now.

    Love,

  3. So it will only be 8 posts? lol

    Lots of guests you're going for this time. I know all the actors, only a few of the others from your previous posts. Good luck getting them all, even the second worst Batman.

    1. My interest in Val Kilmer has nothing to do with Batman Forever, a take-it-or-leave-it film if there ever was one. I loved him in Tombstone, however, and that's why I want his autograph.

  4. Silver that is some impressive list. How many autographs do you think you will actually be able to obtain? I wouldn't mind meeting Val Kilmer. Ha maybe, I will go and see if I can find you amongst the crowd. Now, that might be interesting. There is always the bar at Mohegan. I have your email and have been pondering who reads your email that gets routed to your personal email?

    Have a great weekend Silver?

    1. I'm hoping to get, at the very, least twenty signatures. Hopefully two dozen, maybe more.

      You could have found me at the Wolf Den last night. I was there to see Herman's Hermits, featuring Peter Noone.

      I'm the only one who reads my email, whether you send it to my "public" email, davidzrantz@gmail.com, or my "real" email when it gets forwarded.

      Hope your weekend is great too, True.

    2. By the way, True, I didn't know until Thursday that I was definitely going.

    3. It's okay Silver. I hope you enjoyed the show. I'm looking forward to summer and time off from work.

      How's the flea market sales going?

    4. The show was excellent. The flea ,market's been good, but not wonderful.

      Any vacation plans this year?
