When we first started collecting these memes in blog form, it was pretty much just to fill a gap. BoroughCon isn’t until May and, frankly, we didn’t have a whole lot of news we could share with the public until now.
But today, in the wake of announcing our cosplay guest Riki “Riddle” LeCotey, we checked our stats and discovered that this site had already seen more traffic than it hosted on 29 out of 30 days in November — and it was still only 8:30 a.m.! And we have contracts in hand for several fan-favorite voice actors and agreements with or strong expressions of interest from a number of top-shelf comic book talents. Then, in addition to more celebrity guest announcements, there’s all the details you need to know about programming, ticket sales, vendors, travel arrangements … We’re going to have substantive news for you at least a couple times a week going forward.
In short, we don’t really need to do this meme wrap-up anymore. But we probably will. It’s fun, and a lot of people seem to enjoy it.
So here’s what you may have missed in December:
#12: “I’m a celebrity, not an Ewok!” Nerd royalty Kevin Smith checked in via Facebook Live at the Rogue One premiere.
#11: That’s OK — we keep mixing her up with Sarah Jessica Parker. The geek crush who embodied both Buffy and Daphne couldn’t tell the difference between George Michael (RIP) and Boy George. Courtesy: Daily Star.
#7: Oh, and by the way, David Tennant. They’re rebooting Duck Tales! And check out the cast!
#6: We all know a Hermione. A revisionist view of how the Harry Potter books completely missed who the true protagonist was. Courtesy: Simply Potter.
