On The Road To SDCC 2014

23rd July

ON THE ROAD!!

Pop Culture Maven is on the road today heading down to San Diego to cover the biggest Pop Culture event of the year. Make sure the you that you follow us on Twitter for the most updated news as the convention happens. I will try to update the site but it will depend on the internet access at the hotel. Last year it was dreadful and uploading anything was a nightmare. So we will see how it goes this year. If you are going to be in SDCC this year look for me in the Pop Culture Maven Official T-Shirt and say hi!

So Stay Tuned for updates as they happen at the show.

New Comic Book Reviews Week of 7/17/14

18th July

Well its the week before the SDCC flood of book that hit the stands and the convention. I will be at SDCC next week so next weeks reviews are probably not going to make it next Friday. Honestly I’m guessing that it will not happen until the following Friday so I am just going to say sorry in advance for that. So with that out-of-the-way let’s get to this weeks books.

Black Market #1

Boom! Studios Writer Frank J. Barbiere, Artist Victor Santos, Colorist Adam Metcalfe, Letterer Ed Dukeshire

Boom! is really pushing the books out now and the quality has been both good and bad. The plot from Boom! is, Ray Willis is a broken man, a disgraced medical examiner making ends meet by preparing corpses at a funeral parlor. His scientific genius is being wasted—that is, until his estranged criminal brother Denny … Read More »



San Diego Comic Con An Alternative Panel Guide

16th July

There are so many panels going on at San Diego Comic Con that it’s sometimes hard to figure out which ones to go to. The one thing that I have learned over the years is that with a lot of the panels are filled sometimes one or two panels before the one that you want it’s a really good idea to have a couple of backup panels to head to if you can get into some of the panels. Here are some of my choices for panels that might be a bit easier to get into or are ones that might be off your radar. Most of these panels are not the movie or television panels that most people are already familiar with. And there are a lot of those panels that I will be going to also. Sometimes the … Read More »

Aspirin: There is nothing worse than getting a headache during the day. Unless you are allergic … Read More »
