Penguinate Table (B91) on Sunday at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019

For the last day of Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019, the Penguinate table will have nine (9) Tiny Avengers to giveaway to the first nine people that come to the table and say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity.” Be one of the first to make sure you get one of the Avengers in their original Kinder Egg packaging (minus the chocolate egg).

Three of our penguins were adopted on Saturday, so if you know which penguin you want, you should head over to our table and adopt it. Remember every penguin adopted at our table will allow us to donate an additional dollar to the Global Penguin Society.

Our books are still available. Our most popular titles during Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con have been “Disneyland Is Creativity” and “The Haunted Mansion Is Creativity.” “The Pirate Union” and its pirates, bureaucracy and comedy from the 1990s was also talked a lot about.

If you want a chapbook of death and ghost-related stories, Brian C. Baer has given us some copies to give away. Just let us know you want one.

Come see us at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con and find out about Russian Lobby Cards for your favorite movies in the last two years. We’re looking forward to an amazing last day!


Saturday at the Penguinate table (B91) at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention

Our penguins are ready to be adopted. For Every penguin that gets adopted, we will give $1 to the Global Penguin Society.

Creativity, Disneyland, pirates, life in Far East Russia and more… If you’re a reader, we’ve got books for you.

Russian lobby cards are for people who love movies. Come find a gem for your favorite film from the last two years with these great mini-movie posters from Russia.

Penguin motivational posters are available: Believing in yourself is magic, Enjoy the journey and more. Just ask to see them.

Free stuff! If you’re just looking for free stuff, ask about Brian C. Baer’s chapbook. If you’re one of the first six people to say “Penguinating is the power of positive creativity” you’ll get a tiny Avenger figurine from the Kinder Egg collection.

We look forward to seeing you at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention 2019. We’re at table B91, near where the celebrities are signing autographs.

Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention 2019 Schedule

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

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

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!)

These Penguins Available for Adoption at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Convention 2019

For every penguin that gets adopted, we will donate $1 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.

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.

Five Things to Make June Successful for Me

Hey Penguinators, Friends, Family, and Blog Readers,

The month of June is very important to my future success. If you would like to be a part of it, there are five simple things you can do.

  1. Join my blog’s email notification. (It’s over to the right.) WordPress offers this option for anyone who has a WordPress account, so you’ll need to sign up with them. That ensures that your email isn’t going anywhere else. Alternatively, if you would like to join an actual email list, contact me. I should start one, but I haven’t found a good way to build it, yet.
  2. Join my Patreon. Even at the lowest level, you get one article a month about creativity, just for you (and all my other Penguinators). Jenya is considering doing a penguin photo a month and putting that in a calendar next year. The digital version would be something that we would give to anyone as well. If you’re coming to my events, Patreon will save you some money at my table!
  3. Buy my books. They are available on and on Amazon. If you have Kindle Unlimited, you can also read them there for free.
  4. Visit my website. Every page view, every reader is important. Visiting my website costs you some time, but hopefully, you’ll gain some information that you really wanted. I focus on creativity, entertainment and travel. In June, there’ll be a lot about what’s going on at different events.
  5. Spread the word. Sharing is caring. Share a link to my books. Share a blog post you really liked. Share my Patreon page. You can share online with your social media pages and IRL. If you have one of our penguins, we’d love to see his or her adventures.

Of course, this applies to every month, but it’s particularly important to me this month. I hope to see you at one of the events I’ll be attending: Lilac City Comcicon 2019, City Cakes and Café, Ogden UnCon, Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con, and Second Chance Books Author Signing.

Now it’s your turn. What can I do to help you have a successful June? Leave it in the comments.

Go Worldwide with Your Comic Con Experience

Comic conventions are known for bringing people from different fandoms to the same place to celebrate each other. When local people come together with travelers from farther way, it is a beautiful thing. Marvel, DC, Star Wars, Star Trek and other fandoms can truly admire and enjoy the conversations and the artistry that goes into cosplaying. While all of this goes on in a specific geographical area delivering wonderful results to the area, there’s no reason why those results have to be kept local.

If you’re headed to Lilac City Comicon 2019, Ogden UnCon, and/or Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con 2019, your comic convention experience can extend beyond your city and state. By purchasing one of our penguins, a portion of the proceeds ($1 per penguin) will be donated to the Global Penguin Society.

Our stuffed penguins are soft, cute, cuddly and handmade. They’re great companions and mascots, and the love to cosplay. Because the eyes are hand embroidered, each penguin is unique. The costumes the penguins wear are handmade as well and often take as much time to make as the penguin itself.

If you’re looking to do something more with your comic con experience, our booth is a great place to start. Act local. Think global. Buy a penguin.

Join our Patreon and save money at our convention and community events. Join by May 31, 2019.
