Mairghread Scott, Transformers writer for IDW Publishing and the Robots in Disguise animated series, will be making an appearance this Saturday 2nd May at the Blastoff comics fest in Hollywood, California to celebrate this year's Free Comic Book Day! Find out more from her blog here, and below!

So this Saturday, I’ll be signing at Blastoff Comics Fest at the Federal Bar & Grill in North Hollywood, California from 10am to 4pm. This is going to be a great event with tons of comics creators signing, food, music, a beer garden, and of course free comics!

Free Comic Book Day is my second favorite day of the year, which means it didn’t beat out Yule, but it’s still super awesome! And Blastoff Comics is making it even more awesome with this blowout event.

Even if you aren’t in the North Hollywood area, you should definitely look for a Free Comic Book Day event in your area.

Obviously there is an extreme cultural difference that is fueling your sarcasm. South Florida has a heavy Latino population among other minorites that shun most collectiing hobbies. Most of the comic book shops, baseball card shops, vintage vinyl shops, and hobby shops closed years ago because they werent making enough money to cover the rent let alone make a profit. There are a few but not many. You have to go up further north where there is a larger population of white Americans who still embrace collecting. Its a cultural thing. If I asked you to go outside to your backyard and catch a dingo or koala, you would tell me I dont know a thing about your part of Australia. Same thing here about Miami.

The link provided above shows a minimum of ten shops. I count 5 in the Miami area, 14 between Fort Lauderdale and Leisure City (96 km, more or less). An extra two are listed as permanently closed in the Miami area.

By comparison, central London, UK, has four shops, one fewer than Miami.

Stores in Miami participating in the Free Comic Book Day initiative are the following (found via this):
Games of Gauntlet
Mac's Comics and Collectables
Korka Comics
Movie Stop Store
Superheroes Unlimited


No special Transformers events, but there is the issue #0 of the Robots in Disguise series as part of the free books on offer.

Cool thanks. Ill have to check them out. None of them are super close, but alot closer than west palm beach county. Im not really a comic guy, but hobby shops sell a lot of cool stuff.

On a separate note, what did you tech guys do before the internet? Theres a large number of social people like myself who still live by word of mouth. Dont get me wrong, if I hear about something locally and want to know more Ill "google it". But if the word on the street is that it doesnt exist locally, I generally go off that.

The internet came into my house when I was a teenager. I usually take recommendations by friends and acquaintances, and double check location/accessibility with a quick search.

Word of mouth is just a starting point. And we're already on the internet. :D

I went to the Coral Springs ComicFest in Coral Springs, Florida last weekend to get José Delbo to sign some Botcon filecards he penciled. But there was an unannounced guest there who also had a hand in the Marvel G1 comic-Dan Reed! Since he was mostly a Marvel UK guy I was surprised to see him. But it turns out he lives in southern Florida and is returning to the convention circuit. This was his first show in forever.

Since I remembered him best as the guy who penciled and inked 'Kup's Story' I had him draw me a Kup. I also did a little gallery of pictures I took at the show with him and Delbo here:

The lovely folk over at Anime Blues Con (July 10-12) in Downtown Memphis have dropped us a line about not one but three Transformers voice actors in their guest line-up: Garry Chalk, Scott McNeil and Trevor Devall! You'll remember the former two as major parts in the Transformers: Beast Wars animated series, and Devall as a recurring role in both Energon and Cybertron. Head here to check out more detail about the event, and more about the guests below!

In addition to his rich film and television resume, Garry Chalk’s animation career spans 30 years and over a thousand episodes of cartoons. Among them Optimus Prime and Primal in The Transformers, Energon, Beastwars, Gi Joe, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Watchmen, Reboot, and many, many more. Recently, he starred as Sky Marshall Wade in the new hit series, Voltron Force as well as in Cedar Cove. Further, Chalk will be seen in the new Godzilla film in 2014!

Scott McNeil - After appearing in a few films and two episodes of Highlander: The Series, he provided voices for Beast Wars, as Waspinator, Dinobot, Rattrap, and Silverbolt. He has described this as the work he is most proud of. On another fan favorite show, Dragon Ball Z, he was cast as the original voice of Piccolo and various other characters. He then provided the voice of Duo Maxwell on Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and Principal Kuno on Ranma 1/2.

Anybody know if there's going to be a big Transformers presence at Florida Supercon in Miami Beach on June 25-28? I'm thinking about taking a drive down, but only if there's some cool bot stuff to check out.
