UPDATED: New Guests, New Artists, New Price (soon)


We’ve added quite a few new people to our Guests list for Intervention 2011, as well as put up the details for some of the Artists who will be in our Vendor Room this year.


(Chainsaws And Vodka Go Well Together Obviously)

We’re very happy to add Helene McLaughlin of the GeekMom Blog, as well as Becky Harks of Mommy Wants Vodka to our quickly growing blogging guest list. We’ve also added webcomic artists Jamie Noguchi (of Yellow Peril), Darren Gendron (of Alignments), and Danny Valentini (of Draconia Chronicles) to the big list.


(You Know We Love Monkeys)

UPDATED: Carrie Gouldin, Web Community Manager for ThinkGeek.com (known online as the ThinkGeek Twitter monkey @thinkgeek) is now a confirmed guest of the con. (see it can happen that fast)

We also have plenty more people we’ll be adding to the list soon, so you might want to take your last opportunity to lock in your pre-registration to Intervention 2011 at our super price of $35 for the full weekend before it goes up to $40 on July 1.

1 Week Until The Pre-Reg Rate Increases…Look Shiny Objects!


We just wanted to make sure everyone was aware that we are just about 1 week away (July 1, 2011) from the Pre-Registration cost for Intervention 2011 going from it’s current cost of $35 for the full 3 days, to the “Last Minute” Pre-registration cost of $40. So It’s definitely a good idea to buy your registration to the event now. You also might want to add on an Enabler Level while you’re at it, which gets your Registration sent by mail so you don’t have to stand in a line at the event (and also get invited to the special Enabler exclusive Guest “Meet and Greet” event).


If you want more incentive to go to the event this year, maybe the fact that we will be giving out over 2000+ dollars in items to our attendees for free, ranging from Wacom tablets, Manga Studio software, Big plush animals, and more might stimulate you to lock in your registration now. We’re just saying….

New Sponsor: BAWLS Guarana

I have been personally drinking BAWLS for years to get some extra caffeine in my system. There was a time during Katsucon 2005 that we were retty much SURVIVING only on BAWLS and granola bars. Well wouldn’t you know it? BAWLS loves geeks and are sponsoring Intervention 2011! Yep! Not only will be have a brand new video gaming room this year, but you’ll be able to try some BAWLS while you are gaming away.

Can’t wait for the con? Ask your local retailer to carry BAWLS Guarana, BAWLS EXXtra, Cherry, and G33K B33R so that you can pre-game!

You can currently buy the caffeinated goodness at these fine stores or follow them on Twitter.
