Adventure in Pittsburgh

I first moved to Pittsburgh for college in 2010. Like most of my fellow filmmaking students, my plan was to graduate and then save up money until I could afford to move to LA and find work in the biz. Then I met a girl, and five years after graduation I am still here. And now, because I love that girl so much, it is time for us to say goodbye to this city.

REVIEW: C-3PO Does Not Like Sand


I first got in contact with Disney Books after attending NYCC in 2017 because I was interested in reviewing their Star Wars and Marvel books. It’s been over a year and a half and so far they haven’t sent me much related to those two franchises, or anything particularly on brand with The Modern Gafa. But this? Well...It’s Star Wars.

REVIEW: Paradox Girl Vol. 1


Holy crap, everyone. Stop what you’re doing and go read Paradox Girl. Well, don’t because it’s not out yet so read my review and then go read it. Because Paradox Girl isn’t just good. And it’s not just really good. It’s the best comic I’ve read so far this year.

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. When the region’s once golden shopping center breathed its last breath, the 3 Rivers Comicon moved on to the Waterfront in Homestead. Did the mall take the con down with it, or has 3 Rivers Comicon found its new, permanent home?

Panelathon TBR + Recommendations


I’ve never done a readathon. Lately, I’ve been focusing on reading newer books to review and my personal TBR stack is through the roof. Not to mention it takes me a month to read a decent sized book because I’m busy reading and reviewing comics. So a readathon based on comics? Yeah, I can do that.

How to Make Tekko a Better Anime Convention


I’ve been going to all kinds of fan conventions since 2014. I’ve been to local comic cons, retrogaming cons, weird random tiny conventions, and even New York Comic Con. The first ever convention I ever went to was Tekko, which is an anime convention held every year in Pittsburgh. I’ve been to the past six Tekkos and after this year I decided that I was done going to Tekko.
