Video+Story: TNTM’s Phoenix Fan Fusion review

Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 was a great event in our eyes. The only bad that we saw was getting entry into the event. Ever since they caught a crazy guy trying to get in with weapons to injure one of the featured guests, security has been a nightmare.

They have been trying different things to make getting into the event a much quicker and smoother process while still maintaining safety to the best of their abilities.

Some people had to wait a looonnggg time to get in. This makes those attendees a bit testy and frustrated. Lucky the weather cooperated and it wasn’t as hot as the surface of the sun outside like in past years. Other than that, everything was good for us.

The featured guest line up was great. The vendors were awesome. The Hall of Heroes was phenomenal. Phoenix is one of our favorite cons to attend. Can’t wait to see how they tackle the issue of getting the crowds of attendees into the event quicker and more efficiently next year.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

Video: Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 preview

Phoenix Fan Fusion is one of our favorite big comic cons to attend. They are considered one of the big 6 comic cons, even with the slight decrease in attendance last year.

Just like the mythical Phoenix, they are rising anew from the ashes of last year. They have a new name now… Phoenix Fan Fusion! They have also stacked their featured guest line up with some pretty impressive names. Jeff Goldblum, Paul Reubens, John Barrowman, George Takei, Elijah Wood, and Billy Dee Williams just to name a few.

Those featured guests will be up on the third floor in the Hall of Heroes. While you are fanboying/fangirling over your favorite guest you can also check out all the fan clubs/cosplay groups there. Star Wars always has a big corner with the 501st, Rebel Legion, R2 Builders Club, and the Mandalorian Mercs all joining together for an unforgettable experience. There will be fan clubs for Judge Dredd, Firefly (Browncoats), Doctor Who, and so many more. You can spend an entire day ( and a load of money) on the third floor.

If panels are your thing, you will find more than you can possibly attend. Most panels take place on the second floor. You name the topic and I’m sure they have a panel for it.

The ground floor is gonna be taken up mostly with food vendors and a few stray panel rooms.

The exhibit hall is down one floor. The convention center is separated on the ground floor by a street, but it is connected underground. The exhibit hall is enormous. You can spend the better part of a day just shopping.

in the lobby area underground there is always some interesting interactive stuff set up. Make sure to look around there before you run into the exhibit hall.

Las year they had a beer garden/food truck area set up on the street between the two convention center sides. That was really a nice perk last year. Being able to step outside under cover of a tent and grab a beer and maybe some tacos was nice.

More and more of the businesses and hotels surrounding the event area are starting to participate in the festivities as well. There will be tons of con specials and off site events.

Best thing is, tickets are readily available. You can get a full event pass for around $85, which is a huge bargain.

If you plan on cosplaying, please read their rules regarding what can and can’t be brought into the convention center. Security of the guests and attendees are very important.

You can find us probably in one of the autograph or photo op lines. If you see us, come talk to us. We’d love to hear from you.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts.  If they are good, we will use them on the show.  The number is (575) 323-1332.

CHECK OUT THE GUYS THAT MAKE US LOOK GOOD

TNTM: Elijah Wood wants to be Yorick Brown in FX’s Y the Last Man

Imagine a world where every living thing with a Y chromosome dies. Everything except you and your male pet Capuchin monkey. This is the premise for Y: The Last Man’s main character, Yorick Brown.

Y: The Last Man had a 60 issue run starting in 2002. It was created by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. There have been several attempts at making Y: The Last Man a TV series or movie. Every time something has happened to put a halt to production. In 2014 the rights to the story reverted back to the creators.

FX Network has been working with the creators since 2016 to bring this show to TV. Vaughan stated the show was “very slowly coming to life. No news I can share, other than that it’s all chugging along happily.” Elijah Wood has thrown his hat in the ring for consideration to be the main character, Yorick Brown.

About the series

Y: The Last Man is a post-apocalyptic science fiction comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra published by Vertigo Comics starting in 2002.

The series is about the only male (except his pet Capuchin monkey named Ampersand) to survive the simultaneous death of all other male mammals on Earth. The series ran for sixty issues.
