Smaller Walker Stalker Boston Still Brings the Horror Names

Posted  August 23, 2017  by  Byron D. Zero

Summer convention season is winding down, and I was in attendance at one of Boston’s more niche cons this past weekend, Walker Stalker Con Boston. Walker Stalker was located at Westin Boston Waterfront Hotel and is run by Fan Fest, the people who are in charge of the Heroes & Villains conventions throughout the U.S., […]

Walker Stalker Boston 2017 Losing Steam

Posted  August 23, 2017  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

This year marks my third visit to Walker Stalker, the Walking Dead and all-things-zombie convention held in several U.S. cities. The convention hosts a huge number of fans, eager to get autographs and photos with their favorite stars. While there were seemingly as many people as in previous years, the convention itself was smaller, with […]

Boston Comic Con 2017 Gallery by FPS, Saturday Part 6

Posted  August 22, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Posted  August 22, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

We are up to the penultimate cosplay photo gallery from Saturday at Boston Comic Con 2017. The crowds were still packed in to the convention center, and even the BCEC’s impressive air conditioning system was starting to feel the strain. In this gallery you can find cosplayers Human Sushi Cosplay, Toy Town Studios, Clillith cosplay, Erin Rose […]

Boston Comic Con 2017 Gallery by FPS, Saturday Part 4

Posted  August 21, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

By the middle of the afternoon on Saturday at Boston Comic Con 2017 the crowd in the convention center was as dense as it could get. Luckily team member Ryan stopped by the booth, and stepped in for me on a few shots while I took a much needed break. In this fourth of six […]

Boston Comic Con 2017 Gallery by FPS, Saturday Part 3

Posted  August 20, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Gallery three marks the halfway point in the Saturday photos from Boston Comic Con 2017. My legs were starting to give out, my flash triggers were starting to give out, but the show must go on as the cliche would have it. Among the cosplayers in this gallery are Sara Chaos, Silhouette Cosplay, Natalie Fuinha Cosplay, Lucky […]

Iron Fist’s Issues Infect The Defenders

Posted  August 19, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Netflix and Marvel have finally this week brought together the heroes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in the long-anticipated team show The Defenders. Is it right up there with The Avengers or is it a bit more like X-Men: Apocalypse? Below is my mostly spoiler free review. I say mostly because there […]

Boston Comic Con 2017 Gallery by FPS, Friday Part 3

Posted  August 17, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

The third gallery from Friday at Boston Comic Con 2017 is the last one from that convention’s first late day.

Boston Comic Con 2017 Gallery by FPS, Friday Part 2

Posted  August 16, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

We continue with Friday galleries with the second of three from the 2017 edition of Boston Comic Con. The AC was stronger, the bathrooms more numerous and there was way more seating and relaxing space than when the convention was at the Seaport World Trade Center. There were also some stumbles, as would be expected from the first […]
