After a lot of back and forth Warner Bros. has given in and released the official first look at the Suicide Squad film as well as Jared Leto as the Joker.

Please comment below with your thoughts.

Unfortunatley for me, the first official day of Comic Con is also the last day of Comic Con.  And since I knew that would not be returning the next day, I did my best to run around and grab as many photos as I could.

The floor was even more bombarded today then it was yesterday.  Because of that, I could not maneuver through the crowds as well as I did the previous night.  I did, however, manage to pick up some really awesome stuff from some of my favorite vendors.  I also managed to swing by some booths and say hi to some old friends.  Again, due to the size of the crowd I was unable to get any interviews.

Here are some of the photos from todays adventures.  Please make sure you tune in to this weeks episode of the PanelCast as Anthony and I will be wrapping up and reviewing as much as we can about this years San Diego Comic Con.

It’s that time of year again.  No, not Christmas.  Well not for some.  But time for San Diego Comic Con.  The biggest convention of the year is upon us once again.

SDCC is always a love/hate relationship.  While I enjoy seeing all the amazing exclusives and grand booth displays on the floor, I am not a big fan of crazed crowds and long waits in line.  This year was no exception.

The convention floor was filled with some really amazing statues and toys and displays.  While I did not have a chance to see everything (the floor was only open for 3 hrs) I did my best to take pictures of what I could see.  I also managed to be able to run around to some of my favorite booths and grab some of the exclusives.

For me, my favorite part of SDCC is the Annual Forbidden Panel Dinner at the Gaslamp Strip Club (think steaks).  I was not let down this year.  Joined by some good friends and fans, I had a blast.

Here are some of the photos I did manage to take today.  While I will not be able to attend Fri-Sun, I will be on the floor again tomorrow.  Hopefully, I can snap more pictures at that time.  To see what pics I will be taking, please head over to our Instgram page and follow our adventures as they happen.   Also, check back here on Tuesday as we release the latest episode of the PanelCast with our detailed run-down of our hijinks at SDCC

Comic Con International
July 17-21, 2013

According to the countdown clock on my mobile phone, Comic Con International in San Diego is just over 14 days away. My heart is beating a little faster in anxious anticipation of 5 days of lines, panels, S.W.A.G., and seeing old & new fellow nerds. My brain is also on “high alert” as I walk my way through what I need to do to get ready for the biggest week of the fanboy summer season. SDCC, as the convention is affectionately referred to, is considered one of the biggest pop culture shows in North America, welcoming nearly 200,000 people to the Gaslamp District of San Diego, CA. There is so much going on that preparation is necessary to enjoy your time and be able to live to talk about it.  Continue reading

So this past weekend was Wondercon.  You are going to see a lot of different reviews and news coming from the show and I thought I would hop on here and tell you what it was like from behind the booth.

First off, I wanted to thank our fans for coming out.  It was so amazing to see what a following we have.

Wondercon saw the release of 2 new books from us.  The Plagued #2 from Daniel Whitfield.  You can now purchase this on our store in booth CBR and PDF format.  It also saw the release of our first anthology book, Forbidden Tales.  We also have this available in our store in both CBR and PDF.  If you enter B1EQ4TOVGMZX into the coupon section you will get $2 off.

The last day of WonderCon 2013 was bittersweet. It was a huge weekend for the show however fatigue was starting to show. But that did not stop fans from showing up, especially with the likes of Joss Whedon, Clark Gregg and Nathan Fillion due to be on site. Per the norm, Sunday was a day to wind down and hunt for deals on the exhibit hall floor and attend the last few panels before calling it “a Con.”

Saturdays are always going to be the biggest day of any weekend comic convention. Most people are off work, they still have Sunday to recuperate, and Saturday morning cartoons can be TiVo-ed to watch later. This was the case in Anaheim for WonderCon 2013; Saturday passes officially sold out March 26th. The week of Con, Warner Bros. confirmed that Guillermo Del Toro would be on hand at 11:30am on Saturday morning to premiere the newest trailer for this Summer’s much anticipated, PACIFIC RIM; Bruce Campbell, Fede Alvarez, and Sam Raimi put out a video mentioning they would all be in Anahiem for the weekend to promote the EVIL DEAD. These two panels alone meant people lining up early to get in for a BIG day. Cosplayers, Food Trucks, and Exhibitors were not going to be out done by Hollywood’s presence and brought their “A Game” to the show too. Continue reading
