deadpoolDeadpool arrested in Australia

Sometimes cosplayers get no luck, and apparently if you ride public transportation in Emu Plains to CBD morning express then you might just scare a pile of proles and have to talk to the police. At least it sounds likes the police might have had a sense of humor, but personally I would have recognized Deadpool and given him a high five instead.

Deadpool is one of the very few mainstream comic book characters I tend to follow.

The story is being reported by the Herald Sun that the cosplayer was on his way to a children’s hospital in the full Deadpool get up, and that made some folks on the train a little bit nervous. From the report:

Another five officers, including a sergeant and a constable wearing bulletproof vests, surrounded the man who appeared to have two automatic pistols strapped to his legs; a bandolier of bullets across his chest, grenades hanging from his belt and two samurai swords sticking out of his black bag.

So let’s be careful out there, sometimes your cosplay might just make the average human being a little bit weirded out as they commute on the way to work. There really is no point in asking people to chill out a little bit, but then there it is.

You can read the short story and see some awesome pictures by following the link to the Herald Sun.

Crypticon Seattle 2014 Costume Contest Cosplay Pictures Part 2Crypticon Seattle 2014 Costume Contest Cosplay Pictures Part 2

And this is the second part of the series that we are posting today, again a bit late, but better late than never on this one. The cosplay contest run by Aortic Phoenix Studios for Crypticon Seattle was pretty awesome.

There were two costume contests, one was the regular costume contest and one was the cosplay contest, so this is a two part blog entry to accommodate all the pictures that were taken. This set is of the cosplay contest earlier on Saturday that had some amazing cosplay to go along with the costume contest of Saturday night.

Not sure who won this one, but all of them were pretty amazing, I liked almost all of the cosplay costumes because they really showed that people were trying to just have some fun with it. Nothing wrong with having fun and dressing as your favorite anime/zombie/mythic beast for the afternoon and seeing what happens. Overall this was pretty amazingly cool to go see, and I hope that Crypticon does another cosplay costume contest like this one, it just had win all over it, and was totally enjoyable for a Saturday afternoon event to go see and enjoy.

Otherwise enjoy the pictures of the 2014 cosplay contest from the show, sorry about the delay, ask me what happened, buy me a beer, and we might have time to discuss it. Needless to say there has been a lot of downtime lately, and we have a lot to make up for.

Photographers were Studio5graphics and ICandy in case you were wondering. The costume contest was totally worth going to; I hope you see yourself there as well if you participated.

You know I have been way behind the 8-ball when it is taking me three months to post pictures from Crypticon 2014 this year. Needless to say yeah it has been an interesting spring over here, and as we slowly recover from the weirdness that has been our spring, we are getting back into the swing of things that we meant to do, and we are going to end up having a pretty exciting spread of cosplay pictures here from Crypticon Seattle.

There were two costume contests, one was the regular costume contest and one was the cosplay contest, so this is a two part blog entry to accommodate all the pictures that were taken.

Yeah and Medusa won this one, and it was pretty sweet, the snakes in the hair actually made hissing noises and that really was what set the whole costume alight. That is why we are using this as the cover picture; it was amazingly well done and totally awesome. The costume was so worth the first prize, along with the usual input from the peanut gallery.

My favorite one was the “don’t text and drive” costume pair but then there I go again thinking, one can never really guess what the judges will think, and while Medusa was awesome, really awesome, the don’t text and drive costume was also pretty appropriate for the whole idea of the costume contest before the ball. And the cake was awesome too, really good cake. And yeah, the Bio-hazard bar was just across the hallway, so the drunken lady who fell over right as the costume contest was getting started was an awesome way of starting the night off on the right foot. Along with the cake (we have a cake obsession over here by the way).

Otherwise enjoy the pictures of the 2014 costume contest from the show, sorry about the delay, ask me what happened, buy me a beer, and we might have time to discuss it. Needless to say there has been a lot of downtime lately, and we have a lot to make up for.

Photographers were Studio5graphics and ICandy in case you were wondering. The costume contest was totally worth going ato; I hope you see yourself there as well if you participated.

Just in the Dematerializing Tardis Character Building Toy

I don’t know if you have seen this yet, but we just got in for our Geek Girl Con 2014 show a pile of the Dematerializing Tardis’s from Underground Toys. These are so cool, they come with an Amy Pond and 11th Doctor Character, and the Tardis is totally clear. This is what they look like:

Just in the Dematerializing Tardis Character Building Toy

The manufacturers blurb is: Character Building Mini Set: Dematerialising TARDIS 08/2012 Character Options UK

Product description: TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space and looks just like a wooden Police phone box from the 1950’s on the outside, but is of infinite proportions on the inside. This incredible time machine is piloted by the Doctor, a mysterious Time Lord and its able to transport him anywhere through time and space, disappearing in one place and reappearing somewhere new. Amy Pond waited fourteen years for her chance to travel with the Doctor, after meeting him when she was seven years old. Despite her small-town roots, Amy takes everything in her stride and quickly became the Doctor’s best friend. Highly detailed Character Building Doctor Who construction TARDIS playset featuring 2 micro-figures; The Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond.

We off to a totally awesome start with Geek Girl Con 2014, so we hope you will visit us in our booth. We are going to focus on the newer doctor and how the series ended last year with the War Doctor, Gallefrey does not fall, or fall far when all of the doctors are working on the solution. Overall though, we 8th doctor sonic screwdrivers, some action figures, vortex manipulators, and more cool stuff coming in for the show.

Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits Part 2Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits Part 2

Written by Vera Greentea

Art and Colors by Laura Muller

Letters by Adam Wollet

Spanish Translation Jairo Lara and Scheherezade Suria

Published by Greentea Publishing

I waited a year for this second part of the series Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits, and it was so worth the wait. If you did not read our first review of book 1, then go screaming over here to catch up on what we thought of that (and we thought it was pretty awesome). The good part is that the awesome does not miss a beat with part 2 of the book; it just has a pacing that keeps the awesome coming without cutting back on anything.

We are still working with the day of the dead and forgotten souls. If you are unlucky you will awaken a soul that was forgotten, and have to ensure that your soul is not taken to the other side when the veil between the worlds thickens. Over time we all face the real death, those times when we have been forgotten by history, by family and by friends. There is no one to know who we were, what we did, how good or how evilly we lived our lives. When we face the third death, it is often best to simply let it be, let it go, and don’t try to bring that soul back from their third death. If there is no one to light a candle for you, sometimes that is for the best. We eventually over time will all be forgotten, even our heroes and heroines.

The problem is now that the kids in the story line have awakened a spirit who has suffered the third death, and they will need some serious horse power to undo the problems that have arisen because of that. Sometimes the third death needs to be there, but my randomly choosing someone to remember; they have awakened someone they should not have. And that is where the kids need to step back and take a look, and see if the local priest can help them out. Something tells me as the story unfolds that the priest is going to be hard pressed to keep everything in line and on track with this while keeping the kids safe.

And that is where the story leaves off, and no I do not want to wait another year to get this story moving again. It is a worthy story, but it needs to be out there, in the public, the whole thing because this is an amazing story to read. Rating this one 5 of 5 stars, it has a place in my heart because this is the beginning of something beautiful. Vera and Laura have created something wonderful here; it deserves to be out in full, in public, as a full story. Maybe we can get a kickstarter going for this title? It is worth finding, worth reading, and worth the time you will spend with it.

Purgatory Pub Book 1Purgatory Pub Book 1

Written and Drawn by Gabriel Dunston

Edited by Kelly Strutz

Independently Published

This summer has seen some of the best comic books we have read in a while, and this one is going to be one of them. Angels and daemons, sinners and saints, what happens when they meet up to talk about the things they do, and their outlook on life, purgatory, and heaven. Really this comic has a melancholy edge to it that while not pervasive can lead to some interesting questions on your own. This is a good comic that makes you think just a little bit about the answers to heaven and hell that we have been given since childhood.

Kitty heaven, seriously, do our cats and pets go to heaven? I would like to think so, but there is no clear answer here, but yeah, there is in my mind a kitty heaven and a doggy heaven filled with all the things that kitties and doggies like to have around. But the comic book is like that, we try to read it, but we use our own childhood answers to dull the issues in our own heads.

 

While the eternal search for a good cigar is in the offering here, issues like heavy metal, bars, and unknown chicken products in a bucket you wander through this comic book stepping back at times taking a look at the things we all take for granted. Overall it is a really interesting comic book to read, but raises a lot of questions we as a race have been asking for probably the last 10,000 years when we started inventing Gods and Goddesses, and we started our own origin stories.

Disturbing in some ways, but overall pretty decent in how it approaches the ideas of heaven and hell, and the friendship between an angel and daemon that seems to center on finding a really good cigar. We see gates where are there no gates depending on your outlook on life. In all, yeah this one is worth reading and finding, it probably isn’t for fundies. It would be cool if this one had a sound track, but overall yeah it is worth reading and worth finding.

Overall I’ll rate this one 4 of 5 stars, not for the art, not for the letting, but for how you walk away from this comic book with your brain doing nothing but thinking about the fundamental nature of good, evil, heaven, hell, and the role in life of a good beer and a great cigar. This comic book is worth finding and reading, worth talking about, and overall enjoyable, but what really is the nature of Kitty Heaven? That question will be haunting me for weeks, until I find a good cigar to focus on rather than this delightfully disturbing comic book.

Unit 44 is back and badder than everUnit 44 is back and badder than ever

Written and Lettered by Wes Locher

Illustrations and Colors by Eduardo Jimenez

Independently Published

We had the joy of backing and talking about Issue 1 of Unit 44, and they kicked that story out in record time. Now they are back looking to complete issues 2 through 4, and yeah, get off your butt because in all honestly, this is the best comic book I have read this year.

When we initially reviewed it, we saw so much potential in the story line that we had to talk about it, and yes, when we got our first PDF copy of this bad boy we hit pay dirt. This comic book simply is this summer’s best science fiction comic book that we have seen or even remotely heard about.

I need a whole new scoring scale for this one, simply, it is the best comic book we have read all summer long, and is going to be in our top 10 list of independent comic books at the end of the year.

It is irreverent, funny, silly, and good for all ages, especially if you have kids, who have been doing nothing all summer but watching ancient aliens and ancient discoveries on TV, or playing science fiction video games like Halo or watching MIB till their eyes fall out and your sanity flees.

It isn’t often that I gush over a comic book, but this one hit the nail on the head.

Two rednecks who live off what they find in public storage hit the biggest pile of crap when they purchase a storage unit belonging to our good friends at Area 51. The ensuing madness and mayhem with two semi competent MIB’s who just want their stuff back, aliens that want their stuff back, and poor Chester and Ike who are blissfully unaware of the mayhem they have just unleashed into their life. The ensuing pursuit of Chester and Ike with accompanying weirdness, strange weapons, and a space alien looking for what the government was holding on them just rounds out this story brilliantly.

Love it, good colors, good lettering, good story line, believable characters; it has everything a comic book should have, so yeah, go get a copy. I don’t know if they will print it, but they are so close to making the funding on their kickstarter for issues 2, 3, and 4 that you will want to jump in on this one. Go for one of the larger ones so you can play a bit part in the series.

I am going to rate this way over what I would normally rate a comic book, it has been so long since I have seen something this funny and this worthy that 5 stars isn’t enough, honestly since I have gotten such a huge kick out of this I’ll rate it 6 of 5 stars. This one is worthy; it was engaging and fun in ways I have not seen a comic book be engaging and fun in a while. Go visit their kickstarter and participate, go visit their web sites, and share the title, seriously good clean fun.

Created by Sebastian Kadlecik

Gray Tones by John Bring

Lettered by Sebastian Kadlecik

Edited by Lindsay Calhoon Bring

Published by Fanboy Comics

A farmer raised by prophecy to be a warrior leader, to a prodigal son trying to prove worthy of the throne, Penguins VS Possums is one of those epic fight comic books with plenty of back story to keep the story line moving. In some ways this comic book is one of those read, read again, and then read some more to make sure you get all the nuances in the story line and the art. This comic book is black and white with plenty of tones to be pleasing to the eye and the lettering is not hard to read.

Overall the story line is about the eternal war between the Penguins and the Possums, with all the weaponry you could ever want including secret spy dens and religious artifacts as part of prophecy for both races. Of course humans are blissfully unaware of what is going on until a lone human stumbles into the war, and realizes the full significance of what they are seeing. Although the zoo incident is actually fairly humorous because of the obliviousness of adult humans while the kids seem to be wanting to know what is going on, and why are those critters sharing a cage and why they are just lying there not doing much of anything. Not wanting to give away too much here, in a nut shell, this is one of those comic books that leaves you on the edge of your seat turning the pages and hoping that everyone is going to make it out of this alive.

Epic in scope, excellent in drawing and lettering, with a story line that keeps you on the edge of your seat cover to cover, this is a worthy comic book to pick up. Fanboy comics come along with another heroic saga that is so worth reading and enjoying. Good for the early teen to adult audience, with plenty of action, violence, and story line to keep everyone entertained. I am going to rate this one 5 of 5 stars, because everything works here, there is no down time; there is nothing that lags or is missing.  Ask your local comic book store to order you a copy, or you can find it on the Fanboy comics web site right here.

safeCoverSafe how far would you go?

 

Written by Justin Zimmerman

 

Based on a screenplay by Justin Zimmerman and David Brandon

 

Oh I have been waiting for this, another installment in the Otherworld’s universe from Justin Zimmerman, and I am so not disappointed. This is a pre-preview, we got some pretty sweet early access to this, so if you don’t want spoilers, just stop here, show us all some love and then quietly move on doing something you might have wanted to do instead.

 

And you thought the Zombie Genre was tired and overdone, no, not at all.

 

Ok, so we all have our Zombie preparedness sets, we even checked out the CDC notes on what to do in a Zombie invasion, but usually anything zombie just ends up with people boarded up in houses waiting for someone to eat them and kill them. We really never get to explore the psychological issues that go along with a Zombie Invasion.

 

Justin is no stranger to looking at issues at an oblique angle, which is what makes Safe one of the most satisfying zombie books in a long while.

 

We get a ton of psychology. Good tension building relentless justifications for actions that would otherwise be an anathema in normal society type of psychology. The comic book is relentless.

 

We also get some downright awesome zombie killing to go along with that.

 

The thing that makes this stand out as a zombie comic is that we get a lot of people’s perspectives on the same event, we hear from every character in the book at times except for the zombies, or those who are rapidly turning into zombies. We also get some interesting counter parts to this as the non-zombie family is trying to also justify the mayhem they are causing to the zombies, they want to justify what in effect ends up being a wholesale slaughter.

 

That is what is making this more interesting than the average run of the mill zombie anything. We learn a lot about people, how they think, and how they try to cope with something becoming increasingly difficult to manage. The tension builds from page to page as the characters try to cope, justify, and not despair in the world gone insane. Trying to hold onto your sanity becomes a deliberate choice throughout this book, as well as holding on to the last vestiges of your humanity.

 

Overall this one is a total winner, 5 of 5 stars. I would not expect any less out of the Otherworld’s franchise and Justin simply does not disappoint. The comic book is not officially available as of yet, but we will update with purchasing information as soon as we have it. This is going to be one more important comic book for you to read, it is a deliberate well thought out story that looks at the human side of coping with your world falling apart around you.

 

Some more preview art for your enjoyment – if you want to follow along with the progress, go to their facebook page right here.

And last night our first publication went live on Amazon, you can download and read it right here on Amazon Kindle or via the Kindle Store on ITunes or B&N’s nook system, it is all there ready for you to take a look at and let Zelda know you love it.

This is one of the early books we bought about 2 years ago, and are just getting online. This has been far too long as it was originally going to debut at Akicon 2012. A short synopsis of the comic book is here:

When Sunny was little girl (8), she visited Delphi, Greece, with his archaeologist father one summer. She became fascinated by the temple and believed Apollo was there watching over her. There she met a boy and they became close friends. The boy gave her a necklace with a sun charm as a parting gift and asked Sunny to remember him and promised to meet again. Sunny grew up (18) and forgot. As her high school graduation approaches, she tries to befriend/confess to a popular guy at school named Apollo, but fails just like she’s been doing for the past four years of school. Sunny found the sun necklace at home, although she couldn’t remember how she got it, she felt the necklace was important and perhaps had mysterious powers of the Sun God she worshiped.

Sunny went to school the next day and couldn’t believe Apollo actually came to talk to her about the necklace and revealed he was that boy at Delphi. Sunny was overwhelmed by the sudden change of events. Later she found out that Apollo was really the Sun God Apollo, and was taken on a trip to visit her lost memory. The truth was, that boy at Delphi was a mortal named Apollo, who was deeply ill and didn’t have much longer to live. Sun God Apollo meddled with Sunny’s memory because he didn’t want to see the pretty little girl who was faithful to become heart broken and lose her bright smile. The Sun God learned through Sunny that mortals treasure all kinds of memories, regardless of them being happy or sad. Sunny told him that memories were the proof that one lived. Sun God Apollo felt sorry for taking away the precious memories and made up to her by giving her another chance at creating those precious memories.

Sunny was at school again trying to befriend/confess to a guy named Apollo, this time Apollo noticed the necklace and came dashing to her excitedly and asked if her name was Sunny. He was the boy at Delphi and thought it was an amazing coincidence that he met her again. Apollo confessed and thanked Sunny for giving him the courage to face a surgery as a kid. He went and received the surgery after parting with little Sunny 10 year ago. He was going to visit Delphi again and asked if Sunny would go with him. Sunny had been thinking of going to visit her father anyway, so they went. At Delphi, Sunny prayed to Apollo and said “Thank you”. The Sun God Apollo smiled.
