Speed Dating at a Comic Con Hey guys and gals. Ah, Nerds in Love! The headline practically writes itself. Meet a life size Ninja Turtle is off my bucket list. This seemed to me to have all the potential in the world to be the best meet-cute scenario in the history of adorkability. Yes, I’m using a selfie stick because I live alone and am too lazy to use a tripod, or get a timer. Unfortunately, Sci-Fi Speed-Dating, turned out to be no different than regular, normal, every-day speed-dating, just without booze or the opportunity to have a drink. The guys still skewed younger, somehow a year old managed to sneak his way in. The guys are still super-shy, not willing to give a connection a chance, despite the fact that I managed to talk somewhat knowledgeably about Death Note, Soul Eater, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Deadpool in a seamless flow. There were a lot of guys rocking the Green Lantern and Captain America t-shirts.

Even the Wii U had Netflix at launch. But right now, you can expand your entertainment options on the platform beyond games thanks to the surprise release of a Hulu app for Nintendo Switch. Part of what makes streaming services so convenient is that they let you watch whatever you want anywhere. With Hulu now on Switch, hopefully this is just the first of many streaming apps to hit the system. About a year ago the Nintendo Switch was first revealed, and with system version 4. As promised during the Switch event in January, you can now use the capture button to not only take screenshots but also record second video clips.
Just hold the button instead of pressing it. Taking screenshots is one of the secret most addictive and enjoyable parts of the Switch. However, right now the functionality is limited to a handful of Nintendo games like The Legend of Zelda: Hopefully all games on the system will be able to access this neat feature sooner rather than later. It also might temporarily break compatibility with some third-party accessories.

And while Returning Registration is only open to people who attended San Diego Comic-Con this past July, apparently some of you are still headed into your first badge sale. I guess that’s not surprising, since many first-timers probably got their badges through a friend who handled the sale. Below are answers to the questions I’ve gotten about Returning Reg.

Many have turned into disasters due to inexperienced proprietors or poor policies. No one actually does because it never happened. Those that do are still conferring with their lawyers. But few first-year conventions started a pedigree like Keystone Comic Con. The company behind the event, ReedPop, is behind two of the biggest conventions in the United States. They brought an A-list convention back to Chicago after the slow collapse of Wizard World with the popular C2E2, and they wrangled the massive New York Comic Con—the second largest convention in the country—into a semi-functional show despite its limited space.
So expectations were high for Keystone Comic Con, the first A-list comic convention to hit Philadelphia in years. Your intrepid reporter was on hand to experience the con—and sample the local food. That means you can step right off the train, which connects to both local Philadelphia trains and longer-distance trains from New Jersey, and be at the convention in less than five minutes.
The convention space contains a large show call, several panel and entertainment spaces, meeting rooms for smaller panels, and a semi-large theater with sloped seating like a movie theater for easy viewing. I was able to walk right into Keystone Comic Con with my press pass, and the security and staff were all highly professional and friendly. The first thing that surprised me on my visit was that this con was not nearly as busy as I expected it to be. However, for a first-year con people may have found it a bit steep.

Are you going to Comic Con in ? I hope your holidays involved lots of parties, presents and Christmas cookies – and if you were freezing in the Northeast like I was, a fireplace. But now’s the time to think about where you really want to go and when you need to make it happen. If you’re still new to Comic Con life and all of its reservations, badge sales and budgeting, you might think of going to a Con as some kind of fun activity that either “works out” or it doesn’t.
But that’s just not true. While luck does play into it sometimes mercilessly , there is a fair amount of planning involved that ultimately determines whether or not you walk through the doors of a major Con. Here’s what you need to think about. Which Comic Con do you want to go to? You already know if you’re going to SDCC.
9 Things That Geek Feminism Ruined
Henry Adollah My future goals include being financially stable enough to get Spotify Premium and to wear sunglasses at night because my future is so bright.

Keeping track of all Comic Cons in the US is not an easy task. Here you’ll find a sorted and updated list of Comic Cons separated by each state.
You will find that they have been the victims of many situations if not all. They are quick to become angry at the most tiny sign of disrespect whether real or not. They do not give without reason. They have an agenda. Social attack is what they can and will do especially if she is a woman. They will call you night and day to tell you what crap you are.
They will demand apologies. They will post your name on the internet – call your boss or try to hack your computer or social website. They will go after your relationships and your name and livelihood. They want you to feel as low as they feel about themselves and worse.
I’m not a person comfortable with items sitting in storage though I do have toys in storage right now hidden from daylight and view. If I’ve gone to the trouble of finding and purchasing a bunch of Tsum Tsum toys, for example, I want to see them and show them off which I recently did when I found the perfect shelf for my Tsum Tsum stash. So, given all that, I’m trying to work on display solutions in my tiny apartment.
My Disney Infinity figures were at the top of the “I need to do something better with these” list. I had them all on shelves on my TV stand. It was fine, but I couldn’t see all the figures and they are rather cool sculpts — I would have purchased them even if I didn’t play the game.
The team behind Dublin Comic Con have today announced their second guest for their August convention is Star Trek and Judge Dredd star Karl Urban. Karl will be in the capital city August 11th and 12th and will be joining Star Trek: The Next Generation star Michael Dorn in the Convention Centre.
A long time ago, a very cool writer and director named George Lucas resisted studio meddling and made a movie called Star Wars. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are two of the most talented working directors around, turning objectively awful ideas like The Lego Movie and a raunchy 21 Jump Street reboot into modern classics. And for months of shooting, we thought they were doing the same thing on the set of the terrible-sounding Han Solo origin film.
A Star Wars Story. Drama involving Star Wars directors is almost routine at this point. The modern franchise blockbuster movie-making machine is very much a throwback to the producer-driven Studio System from the birth of film.
