“All of us—myself included—have felt like an outsider. We go to conventions because we want to be around people like us,” Ted Raimi said at his Pensacon 2017 panel.
With over 28,000 in attendance, there is no party like a Pensacon party.
Whether you find yourself wandering the massive vendor floor or attending as many celebrity panels as possible, what you want to see shapes your Pensacon experience.
Personal highlights included Raimi’s rapid-fire sense of humor. “I could have been the bra king of Michigan,” he told a full house during his panel at the Rex Theatre.
Scott Wilson talked about his pre-Walking Dead years and working behind the iron curtain at his panel at Pensacola Little Theatre. And rock goddesses Lita Ford and Nita Strauss discussed changes in the music industry, plus sexism and Ozzy Osbourne.
From legendary comic book artists to the Fonz himself, Pensacon 2017 truly had something for everyone.
