Heroes in Crisis: Tom is Still the King

DC has been getting a lot of attention for controversial things the last few months: the BatCat Wedding, the infamous Damned insanity – both things I was completely fine with. I loved both issues. And come on, people. Human anatomy isn’t a big deal in a mature title. No one cares about Dr. Manhattan’s penis being out in Watchmen.

That brings me to a new buzz topic: I feel like there is an Anti-Tom King Club, full of some fairly silly people that either don’t understand what they’re reading, don’t get fed their fan fiction they want, or they’re insanely jealous. At the end of the day, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, of course. But I would like my energy to be devoted to doing the opposite of most people – when I love something, I want to talk about it and praise the creators.

HHN 28 Announcements So Far

It was heartbreaking for me to not attend Halloween Horror Nights 27 last year- this is my favorite Halloween event and it definitely didn’t feel like Halloween without it. And while it’s still up in the air whether or not I’ll get to attend this year, I am super excited about the first three house announcements so far.

Back to Business

RoadTrip1

Between holidays, health, and generalized busy busy busy times – I got pretty behind here. For that, I am deeply sorry. However! Some of my busy was related to things I can post about! So, at least we have that to show for my absence.

I’m working on getting posts ready in advance so even if I fall behind due to life, there’s plenty of content I can have saved and ready to post!

PLUS – I’m planning to add some new features. So stay tuned, kids!

Fan Expo Canada: Day 3

comics

Saturday was supposed to be a good day. SUPPOSED TO BE. And while it wasn’t necessarily a bad day, it did present me with a problem I hadn’t anticipated.

After I was pretty much ready to go, had makeup and clothes on, something happened. I picked my glasses up from the bathroom counter… and they fell apart. Turns out, I lost a screw.

Have I mentioned I wear glasses because I’m blind, and not for a cute fashion statement or slight vision correction?

Ugh.

Navigating an unfamiliar city when you can’t see is slightly horrifying. Everything already seems weird and blurry, but it’s so disorienting it nearly caused a small panic attack. Made it to the con just fine, thankfully. But then came a new problem:

Trying to navigate this HUGE con on the busiest day.

Let’s just say – not my easiest day.

But, let’s move on:

I managed to make my way to another DC panel. I couldn’t see much of anything, but that’s what terrible cell phone pictures are for, right? Haha.

So, this panel was all about Dark Matter. All that amazing Metal goodness DC has going on? Yeah. I know ALL ABOUT EVERYTHING, now. Which is great, because I was already loving Metal and excited for everything to come. This just took my hype to the next level.

Now, this was supposed to be Snyder, Capullo, and Lemire. But, as it was with the Friday panel, more surprise guests! And two VERY exciting ones, at that: Jason Fabok, and JIM LEE.

Yup. Jim Lee just walks in. I was pretty ecstatic.

If you aren’t reading Metal, the tie-ins, etc — you’re missing out. And now that I’ve had a taste of what’s to come, I can assure you… it’s only going to get more badass.

Remember the cool Metal variant I bought the day before?

FanExpo10

I was lucky enough to meet Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo later that, and they kindly signed my variant. I’m shocked on Saturday, the busiest day of the con, I managed to meet them – but, hey. I’m a lucky girl.

Despite the whole breaking my glasses thing.

Overall, despite my setback in the morning, Saturday was great. I returned to my hotel room with nourishment Рwell, Coke, Powerade, and Doritos: The Dinner of Champions  Рand started packing for Sunday.

My last day of con, and my inevitable return home, were already on the horizon.

Packing for FanExpo Toronto

Well, it’s FINALLY here. I leave super early in the morning for Canada. Less than 24 hours until I’m in Toronto… HOW DID IT GET HERE SO SOON?!

Which means, I’m in final stages of packing tonight.

So, what am I bringing along for Fan Expo?

  • Jeans and T-shirts (duh)
  • My Comic Book Stor-folio¬†
  • My con bag
  • Various comics I hope to have signed
  • Normal, boring trip necessities – makeup, hygiene products, pajamas, etc.
  • A small handbag for any non-con adventures
  • Camera
  • My magical book of lists that goes everywhere with me (see the “I Heart Horror notebook above)

I have my hotel confirmation and all of my tickets printed and packed. My information written down so I know when to be where and how. If the printer cooperates before I leave, I’ll have a con floor map and schedule printed, too. Tomorrow is pretty well lined out in my head, so I think I’m prepared.

All I have left to do is last minute packing, and the actual journey to the airport.

I can’t wait! I’ll have loads of pictures and hopefully some great posts for you guys when I get back!

See you when I get back!

When in Rome

Hey guys!

So, I’ve been missing for a bit. I know, I know. Bad Angel. But, I’ve had a lot going on. Mostly health related junk. I won’t bore you with the details. Just know I’m slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things!

But, I have this awesome little thing to share with you:

 

BatForceRadioEp083: When in Rome with the Cat Force !

I was on a podcast! The boys of the Bat Force ( @TheBatForce on Instagram) invited myself and the other Cat Force ladies on Bat Force Radio to talk about ourselves and, more importantly, Catwoman: When in Rome. It was a TON of fun, and I appreciate everyone that can go give it a listen!

I’ll be back very soon with travel updates, recent little trips, and more! Stay tuned!
