Well another E3 goes down in the history books as one of the more exciting shows in a few years. Both Microsoft and Sony showed off their new consoles and Nintendo showed off a number of franchise games. So here are some of the photos that I took on Wednesday of the insanity that is E3.
So I would say that Sony with their announcement of the PS4 being $100 less than the XboxOne was the real surprise at the show. This was of course after Microsoft’s major misstep of their handling of the DRM of lent or used games. Sony not only addressed the issue they put up an instructional video on how to do it.
Sony had the biggest booth of the show and had tons of PS3, PS Vita and of course PS4 game to play.
Surely one of the … Read More »

So I’m back again to bang out some newer comic book reviews and to see if some of the new books out there are worth your time and money.

Five Ghost #3 (Image Comics)
This book I am just loving and it just keeps getting better. We left off with a mysterious airship that has saved Fabian and is taken to the Forgotten City of Shangri-La. We find out that the myserious man is Zang Guo is the guardian of dreams who is trying to help Fabian control the spirits by having him use the Spring of Purity to heal him.

This book is just dripping with so much pulp that is a real rarity now days. Many have … Read More »
Long Beach Comic Con has become a nice local L.A. show with a full convention in the fall and a one day expo in May. The expo’s are much more casual and instead of big crowds all day people tend to come and go throughout the day. You could easily do the show in a few hours but could also stay a full day also. There is a great turnout of local talent and surprisingly a lot of gold and silver age comics along with current books. Here are some of the highlights for me at the show.
The creator of the Oblongs animated show always has tons of his artwork, books and t-shirts.
New for this show was real coroner toe tags with artwork.
He was also selling some of his toy collection off and for each item you got this … Read More »
