SDCC was a blast this year! I saw some of the new stuff that Hasbro is bringing out this year, took in Hall H panels on Doctor Who and The Hunger Games, presented a paper on superheroes and disabilities, and- of course- saw a lot of great cosplay.
I did not cosplay, but I did dress up for my panel and was told that my Dr. Spencer Reid (from Criminal Minds) was great.
Accidental cosplay doesn’t count, so here are a few of my favorite intentional costumes.
Kaiju Big Battel held the “Ends of the World” fighto, which ended up leveling Queens, this past weekend. Silver Potato, Kung Fu Chicken Noodle, Dr. Cube, Cycloptopus and more duked it out at the Flushing Elks Lodge in New York, bringing mayhem, destruction, and “live action Godzilla wrestling” to the unsuspecting denizens. The crowd was enthralled to witness the spectacle however. Check out my pics from the event below. In the interest of avoiding spoilers to the action, I won’t give you a play by play of each match.
Imagine Dragons touched down in Washington DC for their Smoke & Mirrors tour. The crowd was besides themselves, and Dan stood several moments, awestruck, as he took in the crowd at the Verizon Center. Click below for more pics. …continue reading Imagine Dragons “Smoke & Mirrors” Tour

It’s been a few years since I’ve been to a Kaiju Big Battel Fighto. Above is video footage from that night. Tomorrow we’re headed up to Queens for “Ends of the World” for a late show at the Queens Elks Lodge.
You can still grab tickets from Kaiju.com.
Convention season is just getting started. Yes, it’s a nerd-haven of discounted comics and hard to find toys. Throw in some celebrities and tons of like-minded fans dressing up in Cosplay, and hitting a convention can be a rewarding experience. But what about the little ones, you ask. I’ve actually found my convention experience has been upgraded since my son has been old enough to join me. We just hit DC’s AwesomeCon two days in a row earlier this month and I want to tell you how it went down taking a kid to a convention. …continue reading Taking your kid to AwesomeCon
Ok dude, first off, your girl pal here is beautiful, and she’s dressed up, and you’re not! Internet high-five for finding a keeper.

I had the opportunity to attend an advance screening of Avengers Age of Ultron earlier this week and I wanted to give you the rundown, spoiler free. My brief two cents, it’s a lot of fun, and it’s a decent enough story for all the action and “kick-ass” posturing to be hung on. There were two distinct “wat…” moments, but nothing a comic book movie that knows what it’s doing couldn’t get away with. If you liked Avengers 1, then you’ll enjoy Avengers 2. This is not a Matrix Reloaded all over again. Click below for some more details.
