Why Do You Still Read Comics?

Why Do You Still Read Comics? Like any other kid, my brother hated reading and just like any good sister, I loved it because I wanted to show our dad I was the “good kid.” In an ingenious move, our uncle gave my brother some comic books which easily became the lesser of two evils for him. He was reading, yes, but there were pictures, fighting – and perhaps the real kicker here – it was about chara...[Read More]

Mighty No. 9 Delayed Once More

Review: Taiyou Con 2016

Review: Taiyou Con 2016 Last year I made a pledge to visit as many geeky conventions Arizona had to offer and that is exactly what I did!

This was a surprise to me personally since MTV and Sword and Magic has never quite gone hand in hand. Alt...[Read More]
