Saturday was another fun day at SoonerCon, held this year at the Reed Conference Center in Midwest City. From reports, it was another very strong day of attendance, as well. The final numbers from SoonerCon should compare very favorably to previous years.
Some of my day’s highlights:
- I had a great time interviewing Mark Texeira for his his Q&A panel. The artist of “Wolverine,” “Sabretooth,” “Ghost Rider,” “Punisher” and more talked in-depth about his career and shared some insights about his upcoming creator-owned project A Hero’s Death. He also had pages with him from an “A+X” story with Thor and Illyana, and the double-page splash he showed me was intense!
- I also had a great time officially meeting “Captain Boone” of Starship Ajax and visiting the touring Starship Ajax bridge. Looking forward to hearing more from that group.
- Kevin Stark of the Toy and Action Figure Museum in Pauls Valley was at the show, and with him was the museum’s mascot, Rivet. While Rivet has been the mascot of the museum I believe since its inception, this was one of the first appearances of the live-action version of the mascot. Stark told me the museum received the outfit this week. It looks sharp! Always good to have another Oklahoma superhero on hand.
