AnimeNEXT 2017 Cosplay Gallery, Friday Part 1

Posted  June 23, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

By all accounts, AnimeNEXT has grown quite a bit in its second year at the Atlantic City Convention Center. In 2016 the convention moved from its previous home in Somerset, NJ, to the land of the Boardwalk Empire. As he has for years, our Mid-Atlantic man on the scene Adam Etheridge went for us and brought back […]

Boston Bee Cosplay as Bunny Spider-Gwen

Posted  June 22, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

While I didn’t get many chances to do featured photo shoot sets during ComiCONN, I knew I had to get at least one with the bright lights of the Foxwoods Resort Casino — its new home — in the background. Luckily, Boston Bee Cosplay had plans to wear a bunny suit version of Spider-Gwen mid-day […]

Transformers: The Last Knight Needs to Be a Prophetic Title

Posted  June 21, 2017  by  Byron D. Zero

Michael Bay is back, and he brought his bag of tricks with him for the fifth installment of the (seemingly never ending) saga of the robots in disguise. Does Transformers: The Last Knight bring anything new to the table? Short answer is no, but here’s my analysis. The Last Knight takes place not too long […]

Food for Thought: Another Side of the Con Circuit

Posted  December 4, 2010  by  Even Makara

Every con-goer is like a snowflake: they’re all at the convention for a unique reason. Some go for panels, some to just wander about aimlessly, some to show off bizarre and wild costumes that they’ve managed to put together. Yet, beneath the feathers and flair there is an individual with deeper reasons as to why […]

Quick Reviews

Posted  December 3, 2010  by  ravenhaired

Black Widow – This book has seriously gone down the sink hole with the new creative team.  It’s sad, too, because Marjorie Liu did an awesome job on her first arc, only to be replaced by unimaginative drivel.  I’m hoping the upcoming Widow Maker cross-over with Hawkeye & Mockingbird (another title biting the dust) writer […]

Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds

Posted  December 3, 2010  by  ravenhaired

Box art for the highly-anticipated Marvel vs. Capcom 3 video game was released earlier this month; interesting to note that not a single female Marvel character made the cut: Meanwhile, Capcom represents three.  Add to that, the only playable female characters on the Marvel side that have been revealed are She-Hulk and X-23, and it’s looking like […]

EXP Con 2010 Review & Pictorial

Posted  November 27, 2010  by  Kenneth Davis

Depending on who you are, the best way for me to describe EXP Con is that it doesn’t offer much, while at the same time having a lot to appreciate. First off, I must applaud the people of EXP Con for promoting this convention very well. From Facebook to message boards to passing flyers at […]

Heroic Age New Avengers

Posted  November 18, 2010  by  ravenhaired

This book just isn’t doing anything for me right now.  Like, at all.  And I’m not sure if that’s because of the writing (which isn’t necessarily HORRIBLE, given some of the truly terrible stuff out there), or because the first story arc as a whole, which I like to call “Super Blasty Magic Battle,” didn’t […]

Green Lantern Trailer Debuts

Posted  November 17, 2010  by  ravenhaired

The trailer for the Green Lantern movie made its debut last night, and it’s still up on CBR for now.  Judging from the poll results they have on their site, fans aren’t sounding very optimistic.  I’ll reserve judgment until I see it on the big screen, but the CGI costume–particularly the mask–does look a little […]
