REVIEW: Digimon Adventure Tri: Determination + GIVEAWAY

It’s been 3 years since we first found out about Digimon Adventure tri., the sequel series to the original Digimon anime that changed my life eighteen years ago. Thanks to Crunchyroll we’ve been able to see each new chapter of this saga the same day they’re theatrically released in Japan. Last year we got a chance to see the first chapter, dubbed in English, in a special one-night event. And now, thanks to Shout! Factory, we can finally watch Chapter 2 Determination dubbed in English.

REVIEW: Ms. Marvel Vol. 7

Ms. Marvel is currently the only ongoing series we pay a lot of attention too, the only one we regularly buy trades for. Over the past year, we’ve fallen in love with Kamala Kahn and her rise to walk in Carol Danvers’s footsteps and protect Jersey City while also building her own identity as an Inhuman and an Avenger. She’s gradually become our favorite superhero with writing and art that only gets better and better.

Saturday Morning Update #32

Not really sure what to talk about this week. I don't really feel like doing a bunch of mini reviews of all the random comics I read this week. Guess a life update? I got my bus tickets to New York so now I just gotta book an AirBnB in Hell's Kitchen and I'm all set for New York Comic Con!  And I worked out a deal with a couple new partners to share some cool new stuff on here. Don't worry, this blog won't become a giant billboard. I'll only ever promote stuff I actually believe in and will always be a personal blog about me and my geeky life. Getting free products and such just ensures I always have something to talk about! And based on what I've heard about, I can't wait to show it to you guys!

REVIEW: Sailor Moon R: The Movie

Oh man, Sailor Moon. What a weird franchise. There’s been manga, anime, a tokusatsu series, more anime, and now the Sailor Guardians are back in their first ever feature length film. I caught a bunch of Sailor Moon throughout my childhood but it was always a random chance thing there and there. I got back into the series with Crystal but found myself having more fun watching the cheesy 90s dub. Sailor Moon R: The Movie is a mix of both worlds that come together for old school anime awesomeness.

Saturday Morning Update #31

After the last update went up I packed up for ReplayFX and, inspired by the video game culture surrounding me, I threw my copy of Ernest Cline's Ready Player One in my bag. I ordered it months ago when it was on sale and never got around to it, partially due to my recent comic book obsession. HOLY CRAP! Literally all I did this past week was read this book. Usually I'll have a comic out from the moment I get to the train station until it arrives at my stop, but with this book I was running into people because never put it down. I always had one eye on the pages of this masterpiece - my new favorite book.

For those who don't know, Ready Player One takes place in our new future where Earth's gone to shit and the only way to live is in the OASIS, a virtual that began as an MMO and evolved into an entire universe where anything is impossible. The plot follows a treasure hunt through so many 80s pop culture references you'll lose count in the first chapter. Movies, novels, sit coms, comics, anime, tokusatsu, and of course video games! This book covers everything from Ghostbusters to Zork, Family Ties to Gundam. Even Max Headroom shows up! This book is awesome, go read it!

It's been more on my radar lately since a film adaptation is coming in 2018 starring Tye Sheridan, Cyclops from X-Men: Apocalypse, and is being directed by frickin Steven Spielberg! Watch the trailer here.

ReplayFX 2017

ReplayFX is a weekend long arcade and video game festival held in Pittsburgh the past few years. Featuring the largest public collection of working pinball, arcade, tabletop, and console games all free to play with the price of admission, ReplayFX is a lot of fun. The weekend also has panels, music performances, and an artist and vendor area. There’s even inflatable obstacle courses, face painting, and over $100,000 in tournament prize money. Needless to say, I look forward to ReplayFX every summer.
