Wizard World Las Vegas 2015

 

 

Tom charmed the socks off yet another Comic Con this past weekend in Las Vegas. He started off by tossing granola bars and handing out Red Bull from the goody bag waiting at the signing table for him when he first arrived, then proceeded to take a few moments with each fan to chat, take selfies and patiently sign photos, bags and memorabilia for everyone waiting. He had several signing sessions throughout the weekend, as well as a lightning fast photo op with fans each day - those Con photographers do not mess around.

This was the inaugural event for Wizard World in the Las Vegas venue. Attendance wasn't huge, but it was refreshing to be able to walk a Con floor and not get jostled around by backpacks and cosplay weapons/wings/appendages for a change. The Las Vegas Convention Center was a bit out of the way, but easily reached by monorail, and being in Vegas, had the added bonus of plenty of restaurants and entertainment available outside the con. Perfect for, say, a large group of Sleepyheads to get together and support the very talented actor who plays their favorite cantankerous, time traveling Revolutionary War Captain and Witness (with a capital W). Lucky for us, they offered the "Tom Mison VIP Experience," so waiting on lines was kept to a minimum, and we got seats in the first two rows at the panel with no problem at all. Well worth the expense.

Photos, including the ones above, are up in the galleries - there are more to come, so check back over the next few days. Tom also did a really fun, fairly casual panel, with fans asking the questions and getting pretty vocal from the audience. A few times the panel in the next room got a little too loud and Tom and moderator Chris Payne decided to retaliate, leading the audience in a group fangirl scream to counteract it. All while Tom flipped them off. PRICELESS.

Below you'll find video of the first part of the panel - parts 2 and 3 (with the aforementioned flipping off) will follow soon.

 

 

MCM Birmingham Comic Con Interview

Before news from this past weekend's Wizard World Comic Con in Las Vegas is posted, this interview by Red Carpet TV from last month's MCM Birmingham Comic Con popped up and is definitely worth a watch. Given Tom's fanboy tendencies, I think it's a good bet we'll be seeing him at many cons to come.

 

 

 

Birmingham Comic Con Panels

 

During Tom's recent appearance at the MCM Comic Con in Birmingham, England a couple of weekends ago, he participated in a panel on both Saturday and Sunday. Questions were asked by the moderator as well as the audience, and we're lucky enough to have video of each day's session.

 

 

 

 

Interview: MCM Birmingham Comic Con

 

Tom sat down with Stuart Claw from MCM BUZZ yesterday for a really insightful interview about Sleepy Hollow. They chat about how Ichabod will deal with the ramifications of what happened in the Season 2 finale going forward, as well as Tom's aspirations for writing and directing future episodes. Tom is also hatching a plan to sneak on to The Walking Dead set now that production of Sleepy Hollow is moving to Atlanta, so we'll have to keep an eye out for Zombie Ichabod in TWD's next season!
