The 2016 San Diego Comic Con International (SDCC) has come and gone. This year is the first time that SDCC is implementing the RFID badges, where you have to scan in and out. It worked very well.
This year I focused on people rather than seeing and buying things. It was great to run into people, really reminded me of how SDCC used to be.

Didn’t spend the bulk of my time hanging out with my usual friends, but I got to meet up with other friends, which is always great.

san diego comic con 2015 (photo heavy)

Another comic con has come and gone in beautiful San Diego. This year wasn’t the same, I wasn’t able to walk the floor with my usual buddies. I also didn’t spend hours upon hours waiting in line to get a ticket to wait in another line. The only full day I spent at the convention center was Sunday, and that was bargain hunting day, which worked out pretty well this year.

I went to the premiere of Justice League Gods and Monsters, and the Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment Screening TV Panel.

This year I made it a point to meet up with people, comic con used to be a time where I’d run into friends that I hadn’t seen in a while, or would only see at comic con, now it’s a mad house. I know other friends were there that I didn’t get to see, sorry I wasn’t able to hang out for a bit but there was too much foot traffic.

Thank goodness there wasn’t an exclusive figure at the Hasbro Toy Shop that I had to get this year.

daredevil – no affleck here…

Daredevil premiered on Netflix last week. Took me a while to get more than one episode in, but I’m liking it. For those who don’t know, Daredevil is about a blind lawyer named Matt Murdock (played by Charlie Cox) who lives in Hell’s Kitchen in New York. When he’s not practicing law he’s keeping the city safe by beating up bad guys. Continue reading

wondercon 2015

Wondercon 2015 has come and gone. It was rather warm this time around. I got to meet up and hang out with a couple of friends, it’s nice geeking out together.

The layout of the exhibition floor was rather chaotic this time around. The vendors where next to artists and other odds and ends, you couldn’t exactly “section” aisles of as, this is where you buy shirts, this is where you buy art… and so on. It’s probably the Anaheim convention center’s layout.
Oh and one thing that bugged me to no end… artist alley had pillars in the aisles, why not have the artist tables with the pillars? Strange just to bump into a pillar.

arrow – suicidal tendencies episode… tell me about it

This week’s episode of Arrow had to mull around in my noggin for a while. But my gut reaction remains the same over the weekend.

Why is Oliver Queen becoming Batman? And why is the Atom Iron Man?
Let me explain, Oliver or “The Arrow,” is now the latest obsession of Ra’s al Ghul. In that Ra’s wants Oliver to take his place as the head of the League of Shadows. You also have his daughter Nyssa around in the happenings of Starling City. I get it, it’s gritty, a lot of stuff takes place at night, you have vigilante justice with a code, there are criminals in every nook and cranny, but Green Arrow is NOT Batman. Continue reading

man of steel sequel – now featuring aquaman, as previously played by john travolta

I previously posted about the Man Of Steel “sequel” a while ago, CLICK HERE, but now that a single image of Aquaman has surfaced (sea what I did there??)… I can’t help but think that they want to prove me right? Shouldn’t they be trying to get my butt in to that theatre seat opening weekend?

But with this newly leaked (pun intended) image, there seems to be a very odd, yet familiar resemblance…

last night’s episode of the flash

Last night’s episode of The Flash was another good one. Its entitled “Flash vs. Arrow”, and not “Flash v Arrow”…
Anyway, it was such a delightful episode, lots of stuff for the comic book fan boys, and lots of stuff for the non-initiated.

At the end we see one of Ollie’s old flames, Sandra Moonday Hawke. Here’s how she appeared in the episode;
