Nerd Bastards at Hal-Con 2012

As a writer for this site you might think that I’ve shared in most of the experiences that the other Nerd Bastards crew have taken part in, but that would be a misconception. There are a few things I’ve personally never been a part of and one of them is going to a convention. So, this past weekend I took part in the third year of Hal-Con, the largest science fiction convention of its kind in Atlantic Canada.

The event, as I’ve said, is only in its third consecutive year. Having begun back in October of 2010 with an attendance of 1500 people, it quickly expanded to an astounding 4000 visitors the following year. The event has a few staple shows that have since become fan favorites of the young convention, but those I’ll touch on later. For now hit the jump and I’ll give you the story of one nerd’s first convention at this year’s three day event.

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like ATAT on ATAT humping, Fisto from Masters of the universe actually fisting and other crazy shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm art lovin’.

Above: Fighting the Empire is tough. The rebels you need some sex appeal to reel in the new batch of  heroes. With Princess Leia methods of persuasion, thes new recruits will always be filling the X-wings.

The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s fuckin’ weird shit like a Wampa sucking off a Rancor and shit like that. But there are a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis, and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm glory.


Artist Derek Hass has created this neato superhero art which lines up something from the characters costume and their civilian attire. Each piece has been given a nice little worn down vintage style simplistic design. If you’re a sucker for prints, you can buy the likes of Spider-Man, Wolverine, The Hulk, Batman and more by clicking here.
