Saturday Morning Update #21

My post about our honeymoon is now my most popular blog post of the year! Holy cow that's a lot of virtual eyeballs!
  • This week I read one of my pick-ups from the 3 Rivers Comicon, a book called Takio about two sisters with superpowers. I shouldn't like it, but I do.
  • To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars I made cookies with Katrina and they came out terribly. Anyone who has advice for using cookie cutters, let me know!
  • The final trailer for Valerian looks amazing and holy crap I can't wait for this movie!
  • You can already pre-order Denji Sentai Megaranger from Shout! Factory, so that's pretty cool!
  • Have you heard about the crazy behind the scenes drama with the Justice League movie? Joss Whedon is replacing Zack Snyder as director after some really horrible and terrible news. It's obviously horrible news, but at the same time we're getting a Joss Whedon Justice League movie. To clarify though, Snyder already shot the majority of the film, which comes out later this year, and Joss is just going to handle some reshoots, additional filming, and post production.
That was my week, how was yours? Let me know in the comments.

REVIEW: The Water Dragon's Bride

In 2005, while thumbing through the pages of the thick Shonen Jump magazines that defined my early teenage years, I was introduced to the concept of shojo manga. Viz Media announced a sister magazine to Shonen Jump, named Shojo Beat, to focus on serializing manga for a teenage female readership. I thought it was neat, read the article, and moved on with my life. The genre seemed to be more about comedy and romance and less about sci-fi action fantasy adventure. Over ten years later, I finally picked up my first ever shojo manga: The Water Dragon’s Bride.

Honeymoon in Orlando

Hey guys, I got married!!! After a long and emotional day, we got home at midnight and at 8AM we were on a flight to Orlando, Florida. We had a four day pass to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, and we went to both with a small list of goals: have fun, be together, and Harry Potter. Read on to find out how our romantic week in Orlando went.

Saturday Morning Update #20

On this minor milestone of my 20th update I also celebrate the 100th episode and 4th anniversary of The GRID: A Power Rangers Podcast which I used to appear on as a main co-host. I returned to make a guest appearance on the 100th episode, which you can listen to the  here and revel in a bunch of friends goofing off in an unedited shit show. It was sooo much fun and I'm glad I was able to be apart of it.

REVIEW: Jaco the Galactic Patrolman

After the final chapter of Dragon Ball in 1995, Akira Toriyama went a bit quiet. You’re allowed to do that when you created the most popular anime and manga of all time. He spent the better part of two decades putting out the occasional one shot or single volume story, all while DBZ grew in popularity overseas. After 2014’s Battle of the Gods brought Dragon Ball Z back into the hearts of the 90s kid nostalgia generation, the sequel film Resurrection F saw an appearance by a weird little alien named Jaco. And fans across the universe asked: who is Jaco? Read on and find out!

Saturday Morning Update #19

This past week I gave a soft goodbye, either for now or forever, to the Digimon World Tour, an 'organization' I created to bring Digimon events, i.e. a fan convention. You can read the full update here, but the short of it is that it costs to much money and I don't have enough help and it makes me want to go crazy.

This is also the week that a new Hellboy movie was announced. No, it's not Hellboy 3. It's going to be a complete reboot staring not Ron Pearlman and directed by not Guillermo del Toro and the internet is furious. I don't know which I am more upset about: no more Hellboy or no more Digimon Celebrations. You decide! Vote now! Just kidding.

Also how about The Aquabats! are coming to Pittsburgh! So excited. You don't even know. Got my tickets the moment they went on sale. Decided against the Super Rad package but will probably use the money I saved on some merch anyway. So at least one great thing happened in a week of sad goodbyes!

Adventures in Pittsburgh Vol. 2 - Free Comic Book Day

Katrina and I got home late Friday night. Following that was our first day back from our honeymoon, our first real day as husband and wife, our first day to spend together as a married couple in one joined living space. We spent the day going to the biggest comic book shops in Pittsburgh and walking out of them with free stuff for free. The first Saturday in May is always Free Comic Book Day, a day that is less about freebie comics (which are usually not that impressive) and more about getting out and supporting your local comic shop.
