It’s almost that time of year again. That’s right, Comic Con is just around the corner. San Diego has been host to the pop culture convention for years, and now it’s become a mecca not only for comics, but for toys.
Hasbro has unveiled it’s Legendary Daredevil, which will be $59.99 available at their booth. If there are any left over I would imagine they would be available on Hasbro’s website. This is not the Daredevil that is currently played by Charlie Cox on Netflix. It does include some pretty awesome artwork from Joe Quesada.
Daredevil will be part of the Defenders on the Netflix show. If you’re a Daredevil fan, check this out. I think it looks amazing.
Wondercon 2017 has come and gone. Here are some photos we took as we walked the convention floor. We will be putting up a Cosplay slideshow soon, so check back. Overall, it was a great convention with something for everyone!
Wondercon 2017 begins tomorrow, Friday March 31 and continues to Sunday April 2nd. This is a historic Wondercon for some due to the fact that it does not fall on Easter weekend. It is being held at the Anaheim Convention center, which is directly across from Disneyland.
Wondercon is affiliated with the San Diego Comic Con. Yes, it’s the same folks the put that wonderful show on that also put this show on, its just a smaller, but just as good. Wondercon is host to nearly 59,000 people.
A bit of history about Wondercon. The convention hasn’t always been in Anaheim. Until 2012 it was in San Francisco, having Originated in Oakland CA. A fun fact that I didn’t know until I read the information handed out today when I picked up my badge.
Wondercon has something for everyone. There are are a multitude of vendors, nearly 1,000. Comics from DC, Marvel, Image, Boom. They have new and used comics and I usually find some stellar deals at some of the booths.
There is a lot of programming some of which includes Warner Bros, BBC, NBC and 20th Century Fox. Just to name a few. There is hundreds of hours of panels over the course of the 3 days. It’s rather quite amazing how they put this show together so quickly. I was there today, and honestly there really wasn’t much put together yet. I’m sure the vendors are working late into the night to get ready for everyone tomorrow.
I will be updating through out the day, and in the evening after the day has come to a close. Check my Facebook and Twitter for updates.
I’ve found myself over the years increasingly becoming a fan of the X-Men. We all understand their mutants, and each has their own different specialty. But Logan, he was deeper than the rest. He had a past that we (as viewers, I’m sure the comic book readers saw) never really saw. Sure we knew he could be violent. That was always kept to a PG status.
Logan is a complex deep character. Always has been. Even before this stand alone film. There was so much to be seen and felt and learned in this film about Logan. A lot of emotions were felt, not just for him but also for Charles.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers. But if you are a fan of the X-Men, or maybe just a fan on Wolverine, please take time to see the film. It may surpass your expectations or be dead on.
I found myself loving this film, fight seems, under tones, and character development. I highly recommend it to any fan out there who even remotely likes X-Men or Logan.
