Cosplay From Comic Con Russia

Seeing a music video like this just reminds me that all over the world there are people that just love the geek/nerd culture. This music video created by Mr.TVCow was shot a the Comic Con Russian 2015. Yes there are many such videos around the net. This interesting to me for the simple fact that is you were not informed that is was from Russia you would have no idea.  Geeks/nerds are all the same no matter where from. So check out some great work done my these cosplayers.

Arrow, Catching Up, and General-ness…

Hey Poppers,

I couldn’t think of a featured image, I just read what I wrote, the part down there, that you haven’t read yet, unless you skipped ahead, but I bet you didn’t, I trust you. Anyway, that picture of 3PO and R2 in a Tim Burton movie about bad dreams before Jesus’s birthday was the best I could come up with. So good luck, and enjoy, but mostly good luck. The Batman vs Superman trailer!!

Wow, I have been so busy lately I have not been able to blog, but here I am so let’s jump right in. I got Instagram, it’s okay.And I changed my name on twitter to batteryrunheart. Because my heart is literally run by a battery. No joke, I have a pacemaker, it’s one step down from an arc reactor. No big. Also I am now a registered apprentice, becoming a Parts Technician. It’s a three year program, but I have set myself up to have my ticket by next summer. And yes, apprentice like in Star Wars, again no big.

So, also I got my wife rather pregnant, so yeah. We can now move onto four person cosplays. Yes, that is where my mind immediately goes.

Also, Whovians, if you want an idea of how overwhelming it is to find out you will be a dad again, please see the below picture.

Next I got bit by a spider! And I think it may have been radioactive.

spider bite

And lastly I have been working on my third and last book in the Fantom Fury trilogy. (cause the “tri” in “trilogy” means three, so my third, and therefore…. last….. book) So, there you have it my excuses for not being able to blog. (Please see radio style segway below… Remember I mentioned my books like one second ago?)

book

Yes, I met CAITY LOTZ!!!!! at EEK fest. She was super nice and she is so gorgeous. It was awesome to be face to face with Miss Sara Lance. And yes, that is a copy of my first book signed by her. It was so cool. Also I met someone else ladies and gents, he’s on the Arrow, not a huge part of the show, but certainly notable. (Please refer to picture below.)

stephen

HA! Gotcha!! It’s Stephen Amell! and he’s the main character. Get it? It was a joke when I said that he wasn’t a huge part of the show. Cause he is! Get it? Anyway, yeah I totally met him in a bathroom. Dressed as the Arrow. It was the coolest thing ever. He was really nice and I told him he was a big fan. And at his panel I asked him if he was going to use his island wig to playing Casey Jones. If you don’t know of the island wig on Arrow, it’s worth a quick google search. If you don’t know who Casey Jones is why are you reading this, seriously all the references must be going over your head. Star Wars, and yes I made that Star Wars picture in paint, Arrow,  Doctor Who, Spiderman. I mean if you’ve made it this far and didn’t get at least eighty percent of the references I applaud you, seriously. Nice job dude. And yes I call guys and girls both dude. Just so you know I wasn’t leaving anyone out. Anyway, what was I going to say? Oh yeah, even if you get every reference and you are still reading, thank you. I just go, I literally type whatever is in my head, I’m hungry, and hit publish. And if you are willing to use your precious time reading that, well that, well it just warms my heart. Thanks guys! Anyway, as we all know it has been nerd overload lately. The Batman vs Superman trailer. Oh man! I am so stoked!!!!!! Seriously it has been playing on repeat in my head since I watched it. What else, Suicide Squad, Batman vs Superman, Deadpool, um what else, oh yeah, Batman vs Superman. X Men, Batman vs Superman is worth mentioning, Star Wars is coming up, that Batman vs Superman trailer was really good. Ant-Man will be out soon, maybe they’ll play that Batman vs Superman trailer during the pre-show. I saw Terminator which I loved. The Batman vs Superman trailer. Oh! Arrow started filming. BvS. Flash is gonna be on Season Two. Dawn of Justice. Legends of Tomorrow which looks so cool, and I love that they are using Rory to travel through time. I mean what a cool thing to do, and yes I called him Rory. Because to me that’s who he is. Rory, Amy, Doctor. I guess now it’s Rip, Nebula and Skynet. Sniffle. They grow up so fast!!! Yeah, so it has been an overload, which I can handle. I mean I got that spider bite and I have a one-step-down-from-an-arc-reactor-pacemaker. Sorry for any spoilers. And sorry I mentioned that trailer, (Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice) so many times, it’s just that, how can I put this,

IT’S A FUCKING BATMAN VS SUPERMAN TRAILER!!!!!!!!

Anyway, back to meeting Stephen and Caity, yeah, we’re on a first name basis, no big. They were so awesome and down to earth. No, noses in the air, no one was below them. They were both so nice, and so cool, and you know what? Whoever said don’t meet your heroes can go poop their pants!

Anyway, it’s been a slice, hit me up on IG and twitter, I follow back and I’m not quite as crazy, 140 characters and 1000 words, get it? cause a picture is worth a thousand words, and on Instagram you post pictures. Anyway, I’m allowed to make terrible jokes, I’m a dad. Puns, just for funs.

Bye bye

Oh yeah I couldn’t find a way to fit this in, but it’s so awesome so here:

K seriously bye.

Black Widow #1: Review

BlackwidowBlack Widow #1

Written by: Nathan Edmondson

Art by: Phil Noto

Lettered by VC’s Clayton Cowles

Black Widow is a busy woman. Natasha Romanov is a Avenger, a agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and ex-KGB agent assassin. On her free time if you can call it that she takes up jobs to help atone for her past.

Written by Nathan Edmondson and art by Phil Noto these two individuals try and give the reader a idea of what Natasha Romanov does to help correct deeds she has done in her past.

Nathan gives the reader a idea of Natasha’s past but as the character says “no one will know my full story” as she pushes a fellow out a window. He had a rope attached to him. Nathan decides to take the reader forward and not spend time on her past. Part of that moving forward is Natasha trying to atone for her past by taking jobs to set aside in different trust funds. We are not informed who or what these trust funds are for and that increase the mystery of the Black Widow.  The reader knows that even though the Black widow is part of Avenger, S.H.I.E.L.D. she does not answer to anyone or play by the rules. The Black Widow is trying to redeem herself by taking on jobs, but how many will it take? If you are hoping for the Deadpool type of action and humor then your reading the wrong book.

Blackwidow1  The art work by Phil Noto stylish and looks like the art work from 1960’s pulp fiction art of the books of the time. It works great here. You are in the present but with that feel of the past. Noto’s art reminds me of water color art fluid and stunning.

Overall the book reminds of a pilot for a proposed TV show. Everything from character introduction, fast pace action and a hint of what may come in the future.

So in the end I give Black Widow #1 4 pops out of 5. Go out and get this book and give it a try.

Remember comics are to be enjoyed. Not destroyed.

S.H.I.E.L.D. and Thor Come Together for November Sweeps

agents-of-shield-cover  Well Nerd and Nerdits it looks like what we were all waiting for is going to happen. But not as we like. The first of what maybe a long list of crossover like events be happening. As reported by Deadline/Hollywood Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D  will serve a promotional device for Marvel/Disney movies. Eleven days after the release of Thor: The Dark World the November 19th episode of S.H.I.E.L.D will continue were the movie leaves off. Agent Coulson and the Scooby gang, sorry wrong group. Well the gang is left to handle the clean up and with the possibility of one of the members life threaten. Well not really we know no one will die so there is no real tension. On a side note, Jonathan Frakes of Star Trek: TNG is the director. Oh yeah at this time no actors for Thor will be appearing.

Avengers: The Enemy Within #1

avengers-enemy-within The book deals with our lead character, Captain Marvel who has been diagnosed with a lesion in the superchiasmatic nucleus of her brain. The lesion on her brain grounds Captain Marvel because flying makes the lesion worse. Superchiasmatic nucleus is a real thing I looked it up, WTF? Captain Marvel also had a new nemesis, Magnetron. No not Megatron even though that be cool. Magnetron has been messing with the Captains friends and people she loves and well she is not happy. Cap Marvel is help along the way by Spider-Woman and The Mighty Thor makes appearance to help find “Grandma Rose”

I found the story all right but not really anything special. I may of been more interested if I had been reading the Avengers but as a stand alone part one of five, nay. Spider-Woman I found annoying and trying to be a wise cracking version of Peter Pakers Spiderman. It just did not work for me. I have not read any of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s other work but this one does nothing for me. Sorry Kelly. The art by Scott Hepburn was okay but I was not really impressed. I hate to say that because the art of any comic book artist is what holds me to any book and this just did not float my boat.  There were a couple of panels that impressed me but over all but nothing popped.

So over all the book was fine but not enough for me to continue getting the rest of the series. I hate not liking it because the writer and artist put so much time and effort into these books. But I can not like them all. But hey you might like it so pick it up. I am just a fan of comics like you.

All said and done I give Avengers: The Enemy Within 2 lesion out of 5

AGE OF ULTRON

ImageHowdy hey good neighbors. So in my pull box I fond a copy of the Age Of Ultron. My first impression was oh is it pretty. It reminded me of the covers the comic companies started rolling out in the boom of the 80’s. STOPPED IT. Just give your readers good story and great art. Okay sorry about the little rant.

The book written by Brain Michael Bendis with art by Bryan Hitch and ink by Paul Neary. The inside page tells us that Ultron was created by Hank Pym and has a hatred for humanity. The next few page we see destruction i mass scale and metal cities are up built up around the destruction. Terminator anyone? Ok I have see so much TV, comics, movies that I see much of all media mixed in with other. So getting excited about many of the books, TV and movies I see is hard. Sorry.

Like the Terminator movies I was sucked into the world. Only this time we have The Avengers along with the rest of humanity fighting for their lives and when we see them it is not going so well. The first book main story is Hawkeye going out to rescue one of his fellow Avengers. Not telling who, you have to read the book. The story is good and fast paced giving the reader enough story to keep turning the pages. At one point a number of Ultron’s metal warriors attack the building that holds the hostage Hawkeye is after. At first I thought my eye sight was messed up by the blurring of the panels created to show the effect of rumbling of the building. As much as it was a bit of a pain in the ass at first I did come to like the effect.

A not so happy Captain America

Hawkeye and his recused hero make their why to safety where they meet up with the rest of surviving Avengers and are not welcomed.  The remaining Avengers are in hiding and waiting for a plan from Captain America and old Cap is not looking all that happy.

So in the end I like this book. Yeah I really don’t think it is original but what the hey. Would I have picked it up if it was not in my pull box, probably not. But like the Terminator movies I have to read to see what happens. But I will not pick up the other books linked to the series. Marvel you get enough of my money but if you got money to spend pick up this book.

Remember comics are to be enjoyed not destroyed.

Hulk Not Smashing Up In New Movie

ImageIt appears that at this time there will not be a new stand alone Hulk movie. While Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and The Avengers will be getting sequels it looks like the big green dude will not. Now I don’t know about you all but I was very happy with Mark Ruffalo. Mark did a great job as Bruce Banner. Of course Joss Whedon helped a little. I am sure if Joss could find the time to do a new Hulk movie it would be successful. So until the next Avengers movie comes out will have to just wait for May 1, 2015. Image

Mark Ruffalo tweeted about the situation saying “A lot of folks have been asking about the Next Hulk. The next time you see my Hulk it will be in the Avengers2. No plans for stand alone.” and shortly after that “I am not giving up on another stand alone HULK. But it’s not in the works right now. One never knows what the future will bring.”

So there you have it. Count the days.
