DuckTales Delivers Fun Familiar And New

Posted August 18, 2017 by Byron D. Zero

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 […]

Beauty and the Beast Featured Set by The Portrait Dude

Posted February 22, 2017 by Rodney Brown

When Wes (The Portrait Dude) mentioned that this set was available to us, we decided we had to jump on it and interrupt our just-started Katsucon 2017 content stream. Wes got together at a castle in northern Ohio with the incredibly talented Knightmage and SuperKayce (I thinks it’s very obvious who is who) for this outstanding […]

Posted September 19, 2016 by Rodney Brown

The Moonie Warrior Cosplay CAPE swimsuit shoot is the third set from our Cosplay And Photography Expo Beach Free Shoot Day, held on Labor Day Weekend. Given the location at a beach, her bikini version of Ariel is perhaps the most appropriate. We have shots of her Ariel with legs and with a mermaid tail, and she is joined […]

‘Jungle Book’ Does Justice To Disney Animated Classic

Posted April 15, 2016 by Gregg "Wonderllama" Snider

Disney pulls off several neat tricks in the most recent adaptation of The Jungle Book. It combines several parts of Rudyard Kipling’s original stories into a cohesive story. It pays homage to the feel of the classic 1967 animated movie, while updating it for a 2016 audience. It’s fun, emotional, and absolutely gorgeous. Violence is […]

‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Rises Out Of Suck Status

Posted November 14, 2013 by Rodney Brown

I admit it — I am a Marvel fan boy. Among the comics I read the most as a kid were “Avengers” and the amazing Jim Steranko-drawn psychedelic “Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.” I am also a big fan of Joss Whedon, although I admit I didn’t get bitten by the Buffy bug until season […]

No Female-Led Marvel Movie Before 2017

Posted October 23, 2013 by Rodney Brown

Don’t expect to see a “Captain Marvel” movie from Marvel Studios any time soon — or at least, not one with the current Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers. Or any female-led movie, for that matter. That is the word from Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, and therefore the person most likely to know about […]

Let’s talk about the Ranchor in the room for a moment…  Disney is buying Lucasfilms and everyone is worried about sullying the good name of Lucasfilm and it’s subsidiaries.  Then social media exploded with anti-disney and anti-Lucas sentiment.  Honestly it might NOT be a bad thing.

If you go on Youtube and start looking for San Diego Comic Con cosplay videos, you will notice two types of coverage. One shows how the art and culture of cosplay is portrayed at the convention.
