DC Entertainment is coming to WonderCon this year in a big way, as this is right before the comic publisher rolls forward with their new relaunch of #1 comics they’re titling DC: REBIRTH! Knowing this, it’s obvious to understand why the publisher, whose offices are right in WonderCon’s backyard, is bringing a full crew of creators, exclusives, and news via some big panels! One of the panels is even so big it starts before the convention opens on Saturday and will be streamed live for anyone to watch around the world! But just who are the creators coming to WonderCon More >
WonderCon has moved yet again, but it’s guaranteed to have the fans move with it this year while bringing in a large number more thanks to the new location of Los Angeles! Home of the stars, movie studios, and several comic publishers, expect this show to have a fair number of Geeky celebrities present. If you can, you need to get tickets fast, and prep your travel plans because downtown LA is not always an easy place to get to, stay at, or find parking. But if you do make it? There will be a lot of fun things to More >

Yes, you read that correctly. Exploding Kittens. According to their website it is a game “…for people who are into kittens and explosions and laser beams and sometimes goats.” So naturally, I bought it.
The funding for this game on Kickstarter set records that I am sure will not be broken for some time to come. By the time the campaign ended, there were 219,382 backers to project. That is more than DOUBLE the previous record of 105,857 backers, held by the folks at Reading Rainbow, since last summer. Now simply having an enormous number of project backers wasn’t enough, Exploding More >
Next week 20th Century Fox will begin filming their upcoming Assassin’s Creed live action movie, based on the incredible video game series by Ubisoft. The process of getting this film going has taken years, with Ubisoft standing hard at the helm and going through several film distributors before landing on 20th Century Fox. But with the aid of Michael Fassbender coming on as the lead actor and producer in the film over 2 years ago, things have started finally coming together. On Monday, August 31st, the Assassin’s Creed movie will begin filming in locations such as Malta, London, and Spain, More >

The time has finally come…LONG BEACH COMIC CON!! One of our absolute favorite shows for us here at SG2M. It is certainly my favorite, with its focus less on pop culture as a whole and more on comics, it is always the highlight of my convention season.
So what is there to expect at this years show? Let me tell you:
Everyone already knows that the LBCC Artist Alley really is one of the greatest AA’s of the entire convention scene. This year’s already sold out over a month ago, so get ready to start digging through your collections to find gems More >
When comic fans hear the name Garth Ennis the first thing they think of is probably extreme violence, derogatory language, nudity, or generally just Preacher, his popular Vertigo comic series. With titles like The Boys, The Pro, The Authority, Crossed, and Punisher Max under his belt there is certainly a theme to his writing style. So when it was announced at San Diego Comic Con this year that Garth Ennis’ new comic series would be a romance title released through Dynamite Entertainment, people were understandably taken a back. Ennis has done some interesting war and espionage titles through Dynamite, but More >
Frank Miller is back on Batman for a brand new piece in his Dark Knight series at DC Comics, Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Having already written stories like Batman Year One and All Star Batman and Robin that Miller considers officially cannon parts of his Dark Knight epic, this new piece could be the trilogy end cap for the officially titled Dark Knight comics. Why? Well, considering how many Frank Miller fans out there are still waiting for more Sin City that was promised to them or the prequel to 300, Xerxes, that was even previewed in Dark More >

Before this years D-23 Expo began the biggest rumor going in was that we were going to find out details about any new Star wars presence in the theme parks, especially the possibility of a new land dedicated to Star Wars. Today, that was exactly what we got. Bob Iger announced a very ambitious project. Star Wars Land would be coming to both Disney World in Florida, and Disneyland in Anaheim!!
Both lands will be about 14 acres, the largest single themed land expansions for Disney, and we are being told the land will fully submerse you into the Star Wars More >
