A Note from Artist George Zepeda:
“I have been in love with Comics ever since I was small and have been involved in art ever since I learned to draw. So it was only natural that I would have a love for being a comic book artist. I particularly love Japanese manga art and Anime. I have had works published in an Antarctic Press, Plan B Comics, Hero Illustrated, and various other independent comic book publishers. My website is www.zepeda.deviantart.com.”

Hello everyone! I am Alexsis Page currently living in Oklahoma but I’m from El Paso, TX. I’ve been cosplaying for 3 years as of May. My types of costumes usually are of the superhero variety. I’ve done Hawkgirl, Superman, Wonder Woman, and my favorite of all time “I Dream of Jeannie!”
I’m also a student getting my degree in Journalism and Media Production. Some upcoming projects of mine are a short film called “Typical Tuesday.” I’ll be speaking at All-Con Dallas in a couple of weeks, and I’m a new contributor for the Black Girl Nerds website. My favorite part of conventions is seeing all the people, cosplayers, exhibits, and artists. I’m really excited about this convention and to get to know all of you!

What if you could re-live the experience of reading a book (or watching a show) for the first time? Mark Oshiro provides just such a thing on a daily basis on Mark Reads and Mark Watches, where he chronicles his unspoiled journey through various television and book series. Since 2009, Mark has been subjecting himself to the emotional journey that one takes when they enter a fictional world for the first time. He mixes textual analysis, confessional blogging, and humor to analyze fiction that usually makes him cry and yell on camera. All of this earned Mark a Hugo nomination in the Fan Writer category in 2013 and 2014, and he has no plans to stop. He was the nonfiction editor of Queers Destroy Science Fiction! and the co-editor of Speculative Fiction 2015. His first novel, a YA sci-fi book set in a pre-dystopian world, is being edited and his life goal is to pet every dog in the world.
