An After Look of Denver Comic Con 2014

Logo property of Denver Comic Con

Denver Comic Con 2014 ended with a roar, what a great place for cosplay, sitting in panels, seeing celebrities, and buying great stuff at the trade show.

This years comic con was very large compared to recent years. It has grown exponentially since inception 3 years ago. Yes, this comic con is very young compared to other cities. It's also the only one that is associated with a community charity, Comic Book Classroom.

It was three day full of cosplay, panels, trade show, and comic book art.  I went to a few of the Doctor Who panels but missed the 75th Anniversary of Batman with guest panelist, Adam West, Bruce Ward, and Julie Newmar.

The Doctor Who panels were with Peter Davison, the 5th Doctor and Sylvester McCoy, the 7th Doctor. It was funny as well as informative.  They answered questions from the audience and both were quite humorous with funny banter.

My grandson who is an expert on the Classic Doctor Who trivia was a panelist on two panels: Big Finish Audio and Life Lesson from the Doctor. He did a marvelous job in his knowledge of Doctor Who and in his ability to address the audience.

The trade show was very impressive with such a large selection of vendors that it was overwhelming. The artist alley was more subdued but impressive with the artist of Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors on hand drawing new covers for their comics. I watch them both online. This is the first time I've seen them in comic book form.

There was a display from Weta Experience, a five-time award conceptual and effects company from New Zealand was there to showcased art, collectibles, prop replicas, and merchandise from Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Avatar, The Adventures of Tintin, The Chronicles of Narnia, District 9, Elysium and other films.  There was a life size replicas of Gandalf, Thorin, and Azog, the Orc Chieftain.
