I did love that the vendors that where there this year some of them were of state, but I don't mind that too much for the size of the exhibitor room that was there. I did like to see that the game room was a more lively this year. There was a lot of board & video games that were available to play their.
Artist Ally was a bit more mixed with me. Yes I loved the amount of artist & writers there, I did buy a few books to see if I like to invest my time to continue the stories as I read them. The artist were just a great change to see that we have a amazing amount of talented people in the state.
Now let's get to the panels that I went to. I didn't get to go to all the ones that I liked to hit, but for the ones that I did get to were very nice & funny at times. Yeah one panel the I thought was going to happen never did. So that was a bit of a bummer for me & the others that was there. In the end I was sadden to not have what may of been a great panel to learn more about the "Golden age of Comics."
The guest line up was a great to meet some great icons of popculture & some local icons as well. We got some VA's that about behind the scenes of the anime dubbing. How they got into the business. A friend of mine got to meet a member of the Star Trek universe.
Overall I did think that some of the layout was a bit too much for a first time for new location, but I do think that it may work out a bit better next year. I wish that a corner was not so stuffed with a big name fan group that is a crowd magnet to everyone in the area.
I will go back next year to try to be more open minded about the bigger space that it now has, I just wish that it was held at a better place. That is the only problem that I had with this years event. To me it was just a different feel to me & that maybe the main problem that I'm getting with this years SoonerCon.
