Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention 2019 Schedule

Lilac City Comicon 2019

As a vendor, I probably won’t have time to get to any of the panels, but if I could, here’s what I’m looking forward to. Friday is the best day to get on the floor and see what the vendors have to offer. The hall is open from 3 pm to 8 pm, and the only panel I would go to is the Spider-Man panel at 5:30 pm, especially since attendees will get a free Spider-Man comic book!

Saturday Panels

Saturday kicks off with time to cruise the vendor floor. At 11:00 am, “Dude, Where’s My Childhood” panel includes a free G.I. Joe comic book as well as a discussion about cartoons from the 1980s and 1990s. At noon, I would hit the Power Rangers panel with Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank. I saw Frank at Salt Lake Comic Con before the name change, and would love to see the interactions between the two Power Rangers.

At 1 pm, is the Avengers: Infinity panel with a free gift while supplies last; this panel would be hard to pass up. Penguinate’s own Tiny Avenger giveaway is some of the impetus for considering this panel; however, the cultural phenomenon of the worldwide shared experience that is the Avengers is a larger motivating factor. At 2 pm, Daniel Logan and Matthew Wood will be doing a Star Wars panel. Logan is an absolute blast to listen to and watch as he interacts with his Star Wars cohorts. (I saw him at Salt Lake Comic Con as well.)

At 3 pm, the panel of the day belongs to Sean Astin. Samwise Gamgee is an iconic character, and Astin was a large part of “Stranger Things 2.” His long career is likely to yield several amazing stories. This is the panel I wouldn’t miss on Saturday.

Rob Liefield has a panel at 4 pm. With the success of Deadpool and the legend of his creation, this is a chance to settle Deadpool’s origin story with the creator himself. Each fan gets a gift, too, so bonus! At 5 pm, there’ll be tips for traveling better and less expensively. We do a lot of traveling, and this could help us do it better. Trailer Park at 6 pm has some appeal, but I may just get on the floor and check out more vendors.

Sunday Panels

At noon, Turtles and More might be the first panel for me of the day. Followed by Asher Angel and Jovan Arman at 1 pm with their Shazam! panel. Maybe I could even be one of the random fans chosen to win something! At 3 pm, there’s a panel on the history of comic books that should be interesting. Afterwards, I would make a couple more passes through the vendors, concentrating on Artist Alley to make sure I didn’t miss anything.

That’s how I would do things if I were attending Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con as a fan. What will you be doing? Leave your favorite panel and activity sessions in the comments below.

Tiny Avenger Giveaway at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019

Patch Penguin and the Avengers

If you’re going to Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con, you want to remember the phrase “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity.” This phrase is the key to getting a tiny Avenger figure from the Kinder Egg collection. The first three people that say this phrase on Friday to us at the Penguinate table (B91) will get a tiny Avenger.

These tiny Avengers come in their original yellow capsule packaging. Possible Avengers include Groot, Black Panther, and Captain America. They come with instructions for building and games that can be played using them.

“Avengers: Endgame” is one of the biggest movies of the year. Celebrate the ending of Phase Three with a tiny Avenger. While most of the Avengers are tiny, Ant-Man is life-sized. So, stop by the Penguinate table (B91), say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity,” and claim your prize.

If you happen to win more than one Avenger and get a double on Saturday or Sunday, you may trade your tiny Avenger for another. Only one Avenger per person per day. Offer good while supplies last. We look forward to seeing you at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019.

Free Chapbook from Brian C. Baer at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention 2019

Lilac City Comicon 2019

While supplies last, you can get a free chapbook “I Haunt the Spaceship” written by Brian C. Baer, author of “How He-Man Mastered the Universe” and “Bad Publicity,” at the Penguinate table (B91). These chapbooks contain three short stories that center around death and the afterlife. Ghosts on spaceships, a serial killer at a “recovery resort,” and the delay of a film production are all part of the fun.

Baer’s extensive knowledge of the pop cultural phenomenon is on display in “How He-Man Mastered the Universe.” His interviews and research are part of the work that he put into the book, but just as important to the book is the reason behind his passion for He-Man. Baer explores how deregulation changed the world of children’s television and how He-Man led the charge.

Baer’s fictional work, “Bad Publicity” is a noir story involving a tabloid reporter and his ghost informer. The trade-off for great information and what it leads to may be more them the reporter is willing to surrender.

Supplies of “I Haunt the Spaceship” are extremely limited. Make your way to table B91 and claim your copy on Friday! (They will be available all weekend if they last that long!)

Penguinate at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention 2019 (Table B91)

Lilac City Comicon 2019

We will be at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention Friday June 14 from 3 pm to 8 pm, Saturday June 15 from 10 am to 7 pm, and on Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm. VIPs get in a half hour early. The convention is located in the North Hall 1 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Come down and see us at our table.

Our penguins are the main attraction. These soft, cuddly birds are handmade and hand embroidered. Many of them are dressed in costumes. Adopt a penguin and $1 goes to the Global Penguin Society.

If you like Disneyland, the Haunted Mansion and Creativity, we’ve got books for you. We also have “Adventures on the Amur” for people who like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, “The Pirate Union” for those who like pirates and dislike bureaucracy, and a coloring book about penguins and Alaska and how there are none in Alaska.

For those seeking posters, you’ll need to ask about our penguin motivational posters. We also have a Disneyland map created to complement the “Disneyland Is Creativity” book. We have several photos from the now defunct Disneyland Twilight Zone Tower of Terror as well as a Bug’s Land photo. Finally, for the movie lover in all of us, there are Russian Lobby Cards, which are basically small versions of the Russian movie posters with additional information and photos on the back. Even if you don’t read Cyrillic, these are great collector’s items featuring movies from the last three years.

If you’re one of the first two people during the day to say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity,” you’ll get a tiny Avenger prize from the Kinder Egg collection. VIPs, convention employees and volunteers, and Vendors receive $1 off their purchases of $10 or more as long as they remember to tell us and show us the proper credentials. We’re looking forward to seeing you at the convention.
