Eye of Yama-Con 2016

New Monster went back to Yama-Con!!  This was the fifth year in a row that New Monster Project has been at Yama-Con and, once again, we had a great time!!

According to their website, Yama-Con is "an organization founded to celebrate everything nerd, geek, and otaku.  [They] operate fully on a volunteer basis to bring our attendees events that are focused around all the entertainment they love, such as anime, manga, comics, video games, and more."  Yama-Con was once again held at the LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge, in Pigeon Forge, TN.

Despite some of the tragedy that had recently befallen Gatlinburg, Yama-Con still did an amazing job of bringing together like-minded people to share in the joy and excitement of anime, comics, and all-around geekiness.  For New Monster, it was great to return to the con that we know and love!  We were able to see some familiar faces, play some games, and (of course) see some amazing cosplay!!

Eye of Yama-Con - 2015

New Monster Project went back to Yama-Con!!  This is the fourth year in a row that New Monster Project has been at Yama-Con and, once again, we had a great time!!

According to their website, Yama-Con is "an organization founded to celebrate everything nerd, geek, and otaku.  [They] operate fully on a volunteer basis to bring our attendees events that are focused around all the entertainment they love, such as anime, manga, comics, video games, and more."  Yama-Con was once again held at the LeConte Center at Pigeon Forge, in Pigeon Forge, TN.  


Unfortunately, not everyone was able to make it and we weren't able to get nearly as much footage as we have in the past.  But, Yama-Con still holds a special place in our hearts and we still had a blast!!

Marble City Comicon - part 2

Ok, so things took a lot longer than expected to get posted.  We had a few road blocks over the past few months (job changes, kids, etc.), the worst of which was a hard-drive meltdown.  But, now that we have gotten past all of that, we finally got our coverage from Marble City Comicon posted.

Joining together with Tim and Daniel from Mass Listeria podcast (masslisteriapodcast.com), we here at New Monster Project had another amazing time at Marble City Comicon!!  We hope that you have as much fun watching our coverage as we had at the con!!
