Geekly Speaking About… Planning an Intervention

As a newbie geek, a major event you learn about is the genre convention. When I started out, I thought it pretty amazing there was a gathering where you could leave your home and go to geek out with your friends or make new ones while enjoying the thing you loved. The more I went […]

Geekly Speaking About… Cameras, Cosplayers, and Consent

Even though it’s been a long time since I went to an anime convention, I remember how exciting and how much fun they are to attend. I also remember how much drama can surround an anime convention, especially when it comes to cosplayers and the people who like to take pictures of them. The topic […]

Comic Non-Sans: Katsucon 2012 in the Artist Alley

First, a bit of business.  You may have noticed that we have been sans Non-Sans for a bit now.  As of now, we’ve decided that it’s going to become an irregular column, dealing with news and reviews and any big features rather than a week-to-week observational thing.  I think, at least on my end, this […]

Comic Non-Sans: Intervention Back for Another Year

A bit back I interviewed webcomicker, blogger, and con chair Onezumi Hartstein about Intervention, her labor-of-love convention focusing on web-based geek culture.  I was fortunate enough to be a first-year guest and panelist, and asked to return again this year.  Naturally, I said yes immediately, as it was a good event overall, especially for a […]
