So I went to Comikaze 2012 last weekend, partially to run up some display stuff and maybe help out a bit for the cast and crew of Bad Kids Go To Hell, my new fave indie cult hit; and also to see if it would be worth getting a booth for Popular Naughty.
I would have to say it is a good booth idea. The show itself is kinda old school Comic Con… easy to see it all, a very casual atmosphere to speak with the artists and creators, tons of super geek chic shopping options, and a reasonable load of panels to see. It did have a shortage of actual COMICS, but I am sure that will grow. Stan Lee IS one of the show’s owners now.
I LOVED that they had an pre-show concert. Pop art and alternative music have always been delightful bedfellows, so Peter Murphy was a perfect choice. Here are a few pics.
Now get this. Adrianne Curry, one of the show’s organizers, Stan, and Peter took the stage and Stan Lee and Bauhaus singer Peter Murphy sang a duet of That Old Black Magic.
Wow, the voice of legendary post punk goth group Bauhaus kneeling to the Nerd King.
