Spring Super Megafest 2017 Gallery, Sunday Part 1!

Posted  April 25, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Things slowed down drastically on Sunday at Spring Super Megafest 2017. This was without a doubt in large part caused by what seems to have been a very fun and long-lasting series of Saturday after parties. But I still managed to shoot two galleries worth of photos, and didn’t have to move from my favorite backdrop. In this […]

Will Marvel’s ‘Legacy’ Event Bring Its Groove Back?

Posted  April 23, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Marvel announced more information about it’s Fall event called “Legacy.” The gist is that it seems to be correcting the off-course moves of the past few years, including returning to the numbering of issues from before it restarted at No. 1 for those titles that got that change starting in the “All-New” campaign. The news […]

Power Rangers Go, Go To A Bad Place

Posted  March 25, 2017  by  Byron D. Zero

In the last decade and a half it seems like Hollywood had wasted no time making big budgets versions of precious childhood memories, to varying effect. So it was only a matter of time before Mighty Morphin Power Rangers received the cinematic reboot treatment. This is a project that I have been following closely for 2 […]

Posted  March 23, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

After a five-year hiatus, the storied Long Island science fiction and fantasy convention I-CON returned with I-CON 32. That number is an indication of how storied — the first I-CON has held at Stony Brook University in 1982. After Hurricane Sandy hit the Northeast, Stony Brook announced it had to shut down the facility the […]

PAX East ’17 Sunday Gallery by FPS, Part 1

Posted  March 21, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

Sunday at PAX East 2017 was slightly less bitterly cold than Saturday, but it was still frigid, and that combined with the tradition of casual clothes on Sunday meant much fewer cosplay photos that day. Still, there are plenty of gems in this first of two Sunday galleries. Among the cosplayers pictured below are Sidekicker Cosplay, KeiKei’s Cosplay Delivery Service, Cosplay Dad, […]

Iron Fist Is The Weak Link in Marvel’s Chain, But Not A Break

Posted  March 18, 2017  by  Rodney Brown

First, let’s answer a couple of questions. Is Iron Fist as bad as many critics say? No, it isn’t. Are the critics correct about the problems? Yes, but those problems don’t affect the overall quality of the show nearly as much as many critics contend. Below is my spoiler-free review. I will talk in generalities […]

Beauty and the Beast is Faithful and Formulaic

Posted  March 17, 2017  by  Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

In every sense of the word, Disney’s 1991 animated classic, Beauty and the Beast, is magical. It features one of the earliest strong female Disney characters. The ballroom dance scene is gorgeous, setting the bar high for visual style and romantic appeal as well as being one of the first fully computer-animated sequences in a […]

Luckily for us, many people not only survived but showed off their wonderful costumes and props. Kudos to the folks at Twitch for covering the cost […]

Saturday at PAX East 2017 was even colder than snowy Friday — like wind chills in the 15 below range and winds so strong the elevated roadway heaved and bucked. Still, more cosplayers showed up on Saturday than on Friday, as is usual with most cons. Among the cosplayers in this first of four Saturday galleries […]
