Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, back from a recent convention. The Comic Geek Speak podcast has been running for over 7 years and nearly 1300 episodes. I’ve been a listener and friend since episode 195. They have grown enough to host their own mini convention, and I’ve had the pleasure to attend every single CGS Super Show. Here’s my account of this year’s show, and why this little show is my preferred show.
Midtown Bloggerinos! Raph here, having just left Toy Fair. What’s Toy Fair you ask? It’s a show where the toymakers of the world meet and show off their wares to the retailers of the world. It’s not just action figures though: statues, play sets, kids’ toys, accessories and dolls, board games and so much more!
