Saturday Morning Update #55

This week we got the release of Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth - Hacker's Memory, the latest Digimon video game! I've played it basically nonstop since it arrived in the mail. I'll probably have a full review up on Tuesday, once I've played more. I could write a whole thing about it now, but I have a feeling the plot is going to shift halfway through so I don't want to jump the gun on positivity. But if you're on the fence about it just being Cyber Sleuth with a paint job let me say it is Cyber Sleuth with an amazing, all-new paint job. If you loved the last game I promise the additions here more than make up for it being more or less the same game.

What is Hoopla? The App Every Comic Fan Should Have

Last year, I got into comics like it was nobody’s business. I hit up all my local shops and got invested in some new favorites like Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man (the young, Puerto Rican one. Not the globetrotting billionaire.) However, you can’t read everything. Comics cost money and take up space, and that’s if you’re willing to invest in something you might not even like. So what do you do when you’re low on cash in a small apartment and aren’t sure you’re even going to like a certain comic? That’s when you turn to Hoopla, the app every comic fan should have.

REVIEW: One Man Dark Knight

Charles Ross is a Canadian performer who started doing geeky one-man shows in 2001 with the release of One Man Star Wars, a show so popular it went on the road all over North America. Ross’s unique style of storytelling was so renowned it earned him a spot on the stage at Lucasfilm’s official Star Wars convention, Celebration III. Star Wars was followed by One Man Lord of the Rings and now, Ross has a new one-man show about a little boy named Bruce.

Saturday Morning Update #54

I've had this desk in a little nook of our apartment for over a year now, but it's been cluttered up with junk for ages. This week I finally spruced it up and turned it into a little office area for myself. After decorating it with some small art prints, flyers, mini-posters, and some other stuff, I went out and got a dry-erase calendar and now it's pretty complete. I've seen desk tours from bloggers before, but I've never really had the right kind of space to do one in. Until now.

What do you think? What's your workspace like?

My Rules For Buying Comic Books

About a year ago I started getting more and more into comics. While I’m not super hardcore about it, I do love reading and collecting all kids of comic books and manga. But I don’t go wild and come out of my local shop with a dozen new purchases every Wednesday. I have a set of rules I go by to help keep myself from buying more comics than I can afford.

My 10 Favorite Movies of 2017

When I was in college (film school no less) I didn’t see that many movies every year. Going all the way to the theater and paying $10 for something that might be good never sounded like a good time. But for the second year in a row I’ve seen over ten movies, so strap in for another list of my 10 favorite movies of the year.

Saturday Morning Update #53

South Side Comics, one of the many local comic shops in Pittsburgh, had it's final moving/closing sale this week. I talked to the owner a bit and their prospective new location is nowhere near me, so this marked my final time stepping foot in the South Side store. Naturally, I took advantage of the sales and have done nothing but read comics this past week. Keep reading for some mini reviews!
