Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, and reflect on some of the most notable moments from the last decade:
Meeting Kevin Smith:
You can read the entire thing here, but without a doubt, Kevin Smith is one of the most significant things to happen to me in my entire life.

Coming from Vault Comics in February 2020.
I was raised by a nerd, with a nerdy brother, in a home where being into geeky stuff was acceptable and embraced, before it became more normalized like it seems today. At least, that’s how it seemed to me.
And that is the home my nieces have, today: a home where being passionate about things you love is acceptable and encouraged.
“The rain lashes the grassy dunes of Brody Island, and seagulls scream above the bay. A slender figure in a raincoat carries a large wicker basket, which looks like it might be full of melons…covered by a bloodstained scrap of the American flag.
This is the story of June Branch, a young woman trapped with four cunning criminals who have snatched her boyfriend for deranged reasons of their own. Now she must fight for her life with the help of an impossible 8th-century Viking axe that can pass through a man’s neck in a single swipe-and leave the severed head still conscious and capable of supernatural speech.
Each disembodied head has a malevolent story of its own to tell, and it isn’t long before June finds herself in a desperate struggle to hack through their lies and manipulations…racing to save the man she loves before time runs out. “
“Riverdale’s own bombshell bloodsucker is back! Following the events of the Jughead the Hunger vs. Vampironica crossover, Veronica returns to her own universe, still a vampire. She’s not the same, and she knows it. And now she needs answers. But she may not be ready for what she’s about to discover!”
DC Universe released the first episode of the Harley Quinn cartoon, based around the idea of Harley breaking up with the Clown Prince of Crime and deciding to go off on her own and become the big villain in town, herself.
So, my nieces have really gotten into anime, lately. Their favorites are My Hero Academia, InuYasha, and Tokyo Ghoul.
Since I’ve been a bit under the weather (thanks, Trigeminal Neuralgia flare), I thought we deserved a fun themed night, and something relatively easy for me to do, given how awful I feel.
