There’s no better way to celebrate New York then by talking about our experiences with On Location Tours. Joining Laura of The Geek Chic Elite this episode is Mike Dolce, of the Secrets of the Sire Podcast. He was kind enough to invite me on the Secrets of the Sire podcast a few weeks ago to talk about Jane Foster as Thor in Taiki Watiti’s upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder Movie and some other hot takes on the X-Men and Agents of SHIELD. Mike will be at NYCC at booth #1042, so drop in and say hello. Secrets of the Sire can be found on all major podcasting platforms, including Apple and Spotify, and you can find him on social media with his Twitter @Sire_Studios, Instagram @sirestudios, and on Facebook.

On Location Tours is celebrating its 20th year and for the past two and a half years has delighted nerds and visitors aplenty with its Super Tour of NYC, which visits more than 40 locations. If you’re local to New York, like Mike and I, or, if you’re visiting for New York Comic Con or for any other reason, you can rest assured that there are plenty of dates to go on this tour and not just see iconic nerdy NY scenes, but the ones that have colored your comic books, televisions and silver screens for decades.On Location Tours can be found on https://onlocationtours.com, on Facebook as On Location Tours, on Twitter as @OnLocationTours and on Instagram as @Onlocationtours too. At the end of my chat with Mike and Georgette, I’ve also included my talk with my wonderful guide Chris, who is a passionate and incredibly knowledgeable nerd who just wants to share the love. Thanks once again to Mike of the Secrets of the Sire podcast, and to Georgette, Chris and On Location Tours for making this episode possible.

Each year, San Diego Comic Con hosts the Eisner Awards, which highlight the accomplishments and achievements of creator’s and industry professionals in comic books.

Of the many incredible things you can see or do at a comic convention, having a portfolio review by an industry professional is one of them, but it can be a very daunting task for the prospective creator. The GCE spoke with Line Webtoon's Head of Content Tom Akel at the inaugural Keystone Comic Con about how to prepare and what to expect with the portfolio review process.You may have to adjust your volume throughout the podcast as we were sitting next to an active wrestling match at the convention so the audio does become a bit crazy at times.
