3 Rivers Comicon 2019


After Pittsburgh Comicon closed its doors in 2014, the Steel City was left without a true comic book convention. That was until 2016 saw New Dimension Comics, a local chain of comic shops, launch the first 3 Rivers Comicon. For three years they put the comic back in comic con at the dying Century III Mall.

Over the years I’ve gotten my hands on just about a dozen consoles and handhelds, but none have embodied my existence better than the PlayStation 2. Growing up, my favorite kinds of video games were Japanese RPGs, which was something the PS2 is chock full.

Everyone Can Enjoy IDW's New All-Ages Comic Starring Earth's Mightiest Heroes


Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe was born, comic readers have found that Marvel comics change too much too soon to the point where longtime readers don’t even recognize their favorite characters. And even if those books draw audiences from popular movies, new readers are lost in the constant relaunches while younger readers still have trouble grasping the complex sci-fi stories that started in the 60s. But that has all changed. After the jump, check out my full review of the first volume of IDW’s first all-ages book starring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes - Marvel Action: Avengers Vol. 1: New Danger.
