Podcast #1.5, KC Comic Con

This past weekend saw the inaugural Kansas City Comic Con. In addition to celebrity guests like Adrian Paul, Pam Grier, Colin Baker, and Sean Astin, the convention played host to a solid batch of Kansas City's finest vendors and creators. There were also some really fantastic panels that did more than focus on the state of the comics industry as a whole.

While there were industry panels, like an overview of the classic Marvel Secret Wars storyline featuring Jim Shooter, there were also a slew of diversity panels that covered gender and race issues. It was really heartening to see those pnales attended by so many young fans, many of whom had excellent questions and ideas.

However, we're about soundtracks, so we sought out a few interesting people -- some of who we knew, some of who we'd only just met before jamming a recorder in their face. All of them had some great choices for their favorite soundtrack or score.

Kansas City Comic Con

Hey, kids: we'll be attending the Kansas City Comic Con's inaugural show at Bartle Hall this Saturday, August 8. In addition to catching some panels, buying as many things as our wallet can stand, and digging through acres of boxes, we want to talk to you.

Our hope is to talk to creators and con-goers tomorrow for a mini-episode. if you'd like to spend a couple minutes extolling the virtues of your favorite movie soundtrack, hit us up on twitter (@FromInspiredPod) or shoot us an e-mail at frominspiredpod@gmail.com, and we'll get something set up.
