Convention season is in full swing and Forbidden Panel is right where we want to be: right in the middle of it! We received a wonderful response from old and new fans welcoming us back to Wonder Con in Anaheim this year. AJ Herrera and crew introduced several new books, as well as creating a new fan base for our existing titles.

On Friday night after a full first day at the convention, we had our annual Wonder Con company dinner.  The food was terrific and the company was even better. Our friends and family showed up to hang out, talk about the day, and make plans for the rest of the weekend.

There were many highlights to the first convention of the season that included Forbidden Panel. These included admiring the many, amazing cosplayers wandering around the convention center, meeting and sharing our books with popular celebrities, and for me (Andrea), it was attending the Lucifer Panel on Sunday.

April was a busy month for us that also included our 24-hour Create Something Day. “Create Something Day” has become a way for members of Forbidden Panel, as well as other artists and creators, to come together and work on their projects over a 24-hour period. It’s a fun a way to finish projects, visit with like minded individuals and at times catch up on your favorite movies. Check our Facebook page for the next one!

Stay tuned for our coming events, as May is going to be another exciting month for us. We can’t wait to share it with all of you!

PLAY ARTS KAI CONJURES DOCTOR STRANGE FIGURE

Stephen Strange was once the world’s foremost neurosurgeons until he lost the use of his hands in terrible accident. In trying to reclaim their use, he traveled the world and ultimately became one of its most powerful mystics, earning him the moniker of Sorcerer Supreme.

 

With the Marvel hero receiving more attention with the release of “Doctor Strange,” Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai line is offering up its own take on the Master of the Mystic Arts with this new collectible figure.

Standing about 10.5 inches tall, Marvel Universe Variant Play Arts Kai Doctor Strange radiates with mystical might. Highly articulated, the figure spots his signature Cloak of Levitation, which can be inverted for numerous poses. Strange comes equipped with seven interchangeable hands, magic glyphs and effects made with translucent materials, and a display stand.

Available for preorder from Square Enix for $149.99, Marvel Universe Variant Play Arts Kai Doctor Strange is expected to ship in November, just about the time Benedict Cumberbatch reprises his role as the Sorcerer Supreme in director Taika Waititi’s “Thor: Ragnarok.” He’ll return once more in “Avengers: Infinity War,” which opens May 4, 2018.
