It’s 2019, Collectors, and convention season is officially beginning. Our first event of the year is quite popular in Southern California: Anime Los Angeles. It’s a small convention, but it’s quickly become one of our favorites over the past few years because of its friendly atmosphere and extensive number of vendors and artists. If you’re in the area, here’s a few things to check out at this year’s event: 

Last weekend, the Mutineer and I attended our last convention of 2018: Heroes & Villians FanFest in San Jose/WalkerStalker Con. HVFF is small, but well-organized, well-staffed, and with plenty to the offer to the casual congoer. It was probably one of the best conventions I’ve ever attended, and I’ll tell you why.

While convention season hasn’t quite ended for the Collective yet (Heroes and Villains Fan Fest starts tomorrow in San Jose!), it’s time to look forward to events that we really really really want to go to. And since we want to go, we hope you do too. If you didn’t get into SDCC and you’re shopping for your 2019 conventions, here are three to consider.
