Last weekend was the inaugural Geek Media Expo, or GMX, which was held in Nashville. I went for Saturday and Sunday, and I had a blast. It was laid-back and stress-free for me (especially compared to Dragon*Con) and overall it was very well-managed. The staff was fantastic, and the hotel staff were also very pleasant. My only complaints arise from some issues I encountered in two or three panels, but they’re relatively minor.
Derek’s photo backdrop was awesome. I think he and Chase got some good pictures of my Catwoman costume and my hula-hooping outfit, and I can’t wait to see them full-size. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures, so I’m depending on others for them. (Yeah, it was so laid back that I didn’t take any pictures at all…)
Hopefully GMX will continue to grow—I’d love to have a post-D*C con to go to in my hometown every year.
