New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 10/22/14

24th October

So much for the theory of catching up from last week because there are lots of #1 issues this week. So let’s get to business.

Multiversity: The Just #1

DC Comics Writer Grant Morrison, Artist Ben Oliver, Colorist Ben Oliver with Dan Brown, Letterer Clem Robins

The third chapter in Morrison’s Multiversity story was a bit disappointing. The plot from DC is, When they last collaborated, Grant Morrison joined artist Ben Oliver (LOBO, BATMAN/SUPERMAN) for the acclaimed ACTION COMICS #0. For their next team-up, the two superstars take a spin around the self-obsessed Earth-16 – a.k.a. Earth-Me! With all of the world’s threats having been handled long ago by their parents, the next generation of supers – including Chris Kent, Damien Wayne, Alexis Luthor, Offspring, Megamorpho, Donna Troy and more – find themselves labeled as superstars more often than super heroes. But with that fame … Read More »



NASA Ames Research Center 75th Anniversary Open House

22nd October

NASA’s Ames Research Center at Moffett Field California celebrated their 75th Anniversary Saturday October 18th and I was very fortunate enough to attend (Thanks to Shawn and Emily). We went to  the Mountain View Metro station to catch the free shuttle only to find out that it was going to take at least an hour to just get on a bus if we were lucky. So we decided to walk and while we walked all day we definitely beat the buses. The traffic on the street to the center was packed and the 101 freeway was jammed in both directions. When we arrived at the center they didn’t even bother to take our tickets so if you could get to the center you were allowed to go in.

There were 120,000 free tickets that were given away in less than 24 hours … Read More »



Calling all Gay Geeks. Bent Con is Almost Here.

20th October

Comic book/geek conventions come in all shapes and sizes. Some are single day gatherings and others are multi-day events. They all have several things in common, cosplay, superheroes/villains, vendors with toys, books, original art, and a sense of community. That sense of community is the strongest at Bent-Con. Why? Because Bent-Con is a comic/geek convention that specifically caters to the LGBT community.
This will be year 5 for the convention and will take place at the Burbank Airport Marriot Hotel on November 7-9.
Like any other comic convention, there are plenty of panels about geekdom and other assorted subjects. The dealer’s room will be filled with vendors offering original art, erotic and sexy superhero prints, writers selling their novels, original gay themed comic books and possibly cosplay accessories. Other events include the costume contest, karaoke, film screenings and gaming.

This year, organizers are … Read More »



Busy Weekend

20th October

Normally you would see a brand new shiny post on Monday morning but I was out-of-town over the weekend visiting family and friends up north. One of the awesome things that I did was going to the NASA Ames 75th Anniversary open house in Mountain View California. It was the first time in 17 years that the facility was open to the public. Well over 150,000 were there and it was like herding cats. I took a lot of photos that I hope to get up on the site tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.

So in the meantime have a great Monday and check out some of the  other recent posts that you may have not see.

 



New Comic Book Reviews Week Of 10/15/14

17th October

This is going to be one of those short and sweet review weeks because the regular paying job has been super busy and have big plans for the weekend so only a few this week.

Lumberjanes #7

Boom! Box Writers Noelle Stevenson & Grace Ellis, Artist Brooke Allen, Colorist Maarta Laiho, Letterer Aubry Aiese

The mystery of Lumberjanes camp is taking shape in this issue. The plot from Boom is, It’s a race through the woods and through everyone’s’ favorite cave of doom as the Lumberjanes make their way through previous obstacles. Now they know what answers they’re looking for and they are not going to leave until everything is out in the open. Only it looks like the boys’ camp might have other ideas. I have been a fan of this book from day one and I am discovering that while I enjoy … Read More »
