Wizards Agents and Assassains in Cincy

Post by Cozmik » September 16th, 2018, 10:24 am

There were so many cons to my east that I probably would have a hard time choosing which one to go to. But I was spared that decision because I was already committed to heading to my west to get some big wants at the Cincinnati Comics Exposition. Unfortunately one of them, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jamie Lannister on Game of Thrones), cancelled the very morning the con started.

With him gone, there was nearly no-one I needed Friday. Manu Bennett (Deathstroke on Arrow) last year but I took the opportunity to get him to sign a Funko Pop. Manu is super-nice and spends some time talking with everyone who meets him.

I had 2 big wants for Saturday. First up was Agent Coulson himself, "Clark Gregg". I got in the con at the VIP time at 9:30 and he arrived just a few minutes after the official opening time, got a signed 8x10 and had him sign a Funko Pop and then later a photo op.

Also there, "Wong" from "Dr Strange" and "Avengers: Infinity War", was Benedict Wong. He seemed to really enjoy meeting fans and talking with them. I got an autograph 8x10. He was doing table ops but I was already in for the pro-op.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's cancellation was disappointing but all in all, I had a great time at a medium-sized, well-run con that pulled in some great guests for its size.
