A Weekend In Vegas With Grant Morrison Got Me To Kickstart A Comics Anthology

Asher Powell writes, When I sat on the rickety, tiny plane that dipped through the mountains from Fresno to Las Vegas, I didn’t think the weekend would end with me manning a Kickstarter for a comics anthology in two years. I couldn’t even begin to comprehend what the MorrisonCon convention was going to be like. There […]

MorrisonCon In Pictures

Thomas Allard writes for Bleeding Cool; A few months ago, I wouldn’t have entertained the possibility of a convention changing my life; It would have been the same as telling me some random party could have an effect on me. Fair enough, that can happen anywhere but would anyone really expect it to happen at […]

Morrisoncon Day 3 by Akira The Don: Having Your Hashcake And Eating It

Akira The Don performed at MorrisonCon. This is the final day of his story. I woke up a few hours later still drunk, immobile beneath the weight of a Galactean and only just emerging hangover.

A Very MorrisonCon Sunday by Rob Bass: Drinking With DiDio

Rob Bass writes, with an ending to Saturday’s tale… EPILOGUE: One could make the argument that, for me and me alone, MorrisonCon ends there. That is certainly the climax of my wildest hopes and dreams for the experience. But it’s only 8:00 on Saturday night and my flight doesn’t leave for another twenty-four hours. And […]

A Very MorissonCon Saturday by Rob Bass – A Clinking Of Cans

Rob Bass’ Friday at Morrisoncon was here. But this is last Saturday. I’m up at nine, showered and out the door fifteen minutes later.

Tales Of Tattoos At MorrisonCon And Blondie’s Next Cover Artist

Stace Inveigus writes for Bleeding Cool; The Hard Rock Hotel hosting MorrisonCon last weekend, has a tattoo parlour onsite, conveniently one lob of a beer bottle from the convention hall.

Will Frank Quitely Publish His “Bumheids”?

Grant Morrison mentioned this before MorrisonCon; Well they wanted, they had this big idea, they said we want Frank Quitely to come on and design an entire universe.” he laughs. “I went, what the fuck?! You’ve gotta be joking! And then I told them about this thing… he draws these grotesques, these anatomical creatures who’ve […]

Akira The Don performed this weekend at MorrisonCon. Tweet at him here.

MorrisonCon Gets Jesse Jamesed

    Jesse James writes for Bleeding Cool; MorrisonCon wasn’t for everyone.

This wasn’t even a […]

Dan DiDio Fades Into The Furniture At MorrisonCon

Shawn Demumbrum writes from Bleeding Cool; Last night, I started to write “MorrisonCon is rock n’ roll (not the pedestrian rock and roll).  It’s as Ralphie from The Christmas Story says ‘The soft light of electric sex’.
