Hey geeks and nerds, it's that time again. We spent four days at San Diego Comic Con and we had a great time. We saw lots of stars from movies and T.V. alike. Tom Cruise was there promoting the new Top Gun movie, Marvel Studios had reps such as Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayet, Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Anthony Mackie, Mahershala Ali, Scarlette Johansson and others. Helen Mirren was there. We also got to see Ar...nold and Linda Hamilton promoting the next Terminator movie. Orlando Bloom, Seth Rogen, Mark Hamil, Benedict Cumberbatch and way more.
As for television, lots of stars as Kristen Bell and Ted Danson from The Good Place-they were fun, wth Kristen for Veronica Mars also. We also got to see the panel from the late, great Game of Trones, including Arya, Bran, and others. We got to see Sir Patrick Stewart, Walking Dead's Norman Reedus and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olivia Munn from the Rook, Thandie Newton from Westworld, Orlando Jones, Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast members, and we got to see the pilot of the new CW series, Batwoman. There were panels from Arrow, The Flash, Riverdale, and other fun shows, i.e., The Simpsons, American Dad, and Family Guy. And, a really fun panel, The Orville, with Seth MacFarlane and gang.
Take a look at our slide show and see some of the cosplayers hanging out. Kudos to San Diego Comic Con International for another great convention.
We spent a three-day weekend last week at WonderCon 2019. Lots of cosplayers were out and we caught a few panels. We particularly liked AMC'S NOS4A2, a supernatural horror series. We also caught the Agents of Shield panel, Fear the Walking Dead, the World Premier of Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Big Bang Theory, She-Ra, and Remembering Stan Lee. Check out some of the cosplayers below. And, we will see you at San Diego ComicCon 2019 in July.
Greetings geeks and nerds. We had a great time in San Diego at Comic Con. Legions of fans, cosplayers, and comic book fanatics were out in groves. Lots of heat and crowds packed Hall H for the big name movie stars. The other meeting rooms boasted favorite broadcast and cable t.v. series panels, and the Exhibit Hall was packed to the brim. The Gaslamp Quarter was crowded as usual. Autograph lines were long and souvenir seekers waited just as long to purchase their favorite action hero, toy, comic book, piece of art and so-on and to collect all types of swag. For the second straight year, we were not able to get anything from Funko. This year lottery tickets for Funko purchases were issued online before the Con, but we still missed out. But gotta say, the online system is better than waiting in line during the Con.
Superheroes, T.V. stars, film clips of upcoming blockbusters were abound: Aquaman and Jason Momoa, the first female Dr. Who, Jodie Whittaker, The Walking Dead panel, Fear of the Walking Dead, Halloween star, Jamie Lee Curtis, Johnny Depp, Nicole Kidman, John Cena, Ryan Reynolds, panels for Supergirl, Arrow, The Gifted, The Flash, DCs' Legends of Tomorrow, Vikings, and a panel for Hulu's Stephen Kings horror series, Castle Rock. There were also panels for Wonder Woman 1984, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and Amazon's Jack Ryan. The Good Place Panel, Charmed, Magnum P.I., Star Trek Discovery, Black Lightning, The Simpsons, American Dad and Family Guy panels and many, many more were represented. And don't forget the Walking Dead Zone with lots of zombies around in Petco Park and the Shark Week exhibit.
Two Hoof Approvals for San Diego's Comic Con International 2018. Check out our slide show below.
Hey everybody. We're sitting around doing nothing. We'll be at SDCC next week. Hope to see you there. We'll definitely spend a part of each day in the Exhibit Hall. You will always find some of the best cosplayers walking around and the best exhibit booths. One of our personal favorites is the Dr. Who booth. Of course there are plenty of other great booths and vendors. We're kind of Marveled and DC Comic-out since the influx of action-hero movies that have been thrown our way since last winter, everything from the Star Wars sequel to the Avengers, Deadpool, Ant-man and the Wasp, the Avengers sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor, and so forth. (Black Panther came out on top). But we will checkout all the costumes from the flicks and hit some of the panels. It will be hard to get in, but we will be checking out the going-ons in Hall H. So be there or be square. Oh thats right, we are geeks and nerds. See ya there. Oh, and be prepared for long lines and long wait times.
Here are some of the fun sites seen over WonderCon's weekend event.
DROP THE MIC, BOOM! Black Panther had a fantastic weekend: Five straight weeks at #1, over $5oo million in box office intake; over $1 billon international box office, and has had over 38 million tweets. Tomb Raider gets 2 Hoof Approvals, but it did not come close to the Panther.
WonderCon opens this weekend, March 23rd through March 25th at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA. Hope to see you cosplayers all over the convention floors, halls, and outside. Don't miss out on the fun.

Here are our photos from the last day of Comic-Con. We had a great time but we want you to check out the very last picture. We couldn't leave Comic-Con without touching base with one of Dr. Who's Dalek.

Comic-con 2017 has had some not so user friendly changes that were a bit odd. Such as moving all of the bags, books and lanyards distribution to the Sails Pavillion making it a jam packed pedestrian catastrophe.
However, there were highlights including the star studded Battlestar Galactica panel in hall 20. The event was filled with insider knowledge about the acting process for show veterans such as: Mary McDonnell, Aaron Douglas, Michael Trucco, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park, Tahmoh Penikett.
Also details were given into the future projections of the new Battlestar Galactica from the show's creator Ron Moore and Glen A. Larson. Both dropped hints that the series would reflect our real world political climate as well as other relevant social issues.
The end of the event concluded with a special message from Edward James Olmos greeting Convention goers as well as paying tribute to fallen Battlestar Galactica alumni, Richard Hatch.
Pop art gets a warm welcome at the Revolver Gallery located within the Bergamot Station art galleries. Andy Warhol: REVISITED Thirty Years Later takes a look at Andy's life, career and work with over 17 pieces of original art work. Famous pieces such as the Campbell's Tomato Soup cans, Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali were on full display as well as some of his rare or hardly seen collection such as his Sunset series. The gallery also had a documentary running about Andy that can be seen below.
It was a great three-day weekend of panels, artist and cosplayers. Check out the final group of photos below.
Another great day at WonderCon 2017. Check out some awesome Cosplayers in our photo section.
And a good time was had by all. Here are some photos from 2017's WonderCon. We had a great time covering the convention floor and taking snapshots of all the cosplayers. From the looks of the amount of people in attendance we can say that the rest of the convention will be very packed, so if you're coming Sat or Sun, make sure you prepare accordingly. Please bring, comfy shoes, plenty of comics for signing by artist and a little extra cash to buy some cool and amazing original art work.
The panels were awesome this year. We were able to see the first episode of Prison Break and we have to say that it's going to be a great show. The spotlight on Jim Lee did not disappoint as his creative genius did shine through his panel as seen in the above images of Batman (before and after) that he drew live. Also, if you haven't already, make sure you check out Trollhunters on Netflix. An animated series created from an adaption of Guillermo del Toro's popular book. Tickets are selling fast so make sure you check out the WonderCon website for more information.
There are tons of things to do at WonderCon and this year proves no exception. Time get your legs warmed up for three full days of perusing the Artist Alleys, exhibit hall floors, panels and vendors. Some events and panels we are looking forward to attending include: the DC Collectibles panel, Spotlight on Jim Lee panel, and Cinematic Storytelling for Comics. To obtain a list of all the panels and general awesomeness that is WonderCon click here for the program. Above are some images from last years event. Hope to see you there. Be there or be square.
We are absolutely ecstatic about the up coming Wonder Woman movie. Here is the latest trailer from Comic-Con.
Check out our recap of some of the fun happening now at the OCFair in Costa Mesa, California.
Among friends we also made a warm and welcoming call to the new women of Ghostbusters which raked in about $46 million dollars over the weekend, coming in second in the box office right under Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life of Pets.
The film was packed with tons of amazingly awesome ghoulish (safe for the whole family) special effects complete with buckets of projectile slime and a slew of cameos that will cheer up any die-hard fans of the original series.
The film stars Kristen Wiig (Erin Gilbert), Leslie Jones (Patty Tolan), Melissa McCarthy (Abby Yates), and Kate McKinnon (Jillian Holtzmann) and a new version of the Ghostbuster’s theme song by Fallout Boy feat. Missy Elliott. Put the sandwich down and go see it now.
Get this into your life ASAP!
