About C2E2

23-04-2017 Fantastic Forum Blog Oscar - avatar Oscar

A little while ago I wrote about why the small cons have an advantage over the gigantic San Diego Comic Con. So it was in this spirit that went down to Chicago, IL for C2E2. The trip simply confirmed everything I said before. The show floor itself is divided into three sections. The autograph area, where for a small fee you can get an autograph and a picture from one of your favorite supporting cast members. The main floor, where you can buy just about anything comic book or fantasy related. Unlike the big cons there’s nothing new here, none of the...

People Should Go To Wonder-Con

06-04-2017 Fantastic Forum Blog Oscar - avatar Oscar

More people should be going to any and all of the little “baby-cons” across the country. I’ve made this statement to as many people as would listen. Partially in the hope of reducing the giant crowds at the real Comic-Con in San Diego, but also because these little cons are what SDCC used to be. Each year I make the trip down to San Diego I see more and more of the comics being swallowed up by whatever the latest upcoming blockbuster needs to advertise that year. It’s gotten to that point that more and more people are referring to it...

Ironfist: A Review Within A Review

28-03-2017 Fantastic Forum Blog Oscar - avatar Oscar

There has been a lot of discussion about the latest Marvel/Netflix collaboration “Iron Fist”. I was very worried when every review I read about the show said almost the exact same horrible things. While I normally prefer to read a review of the entire series, I also believe that 6 episodes (almost half the series) is more than enough time to establish your characters and hook in the viewer. When time finally arrived for me to watch it for myself, I cracked open a bottle of whiskey to help me get through the difficult chore ahead of me. Five episodes...

Whats the deal with "The Crow"…

15-08-2016 Fantastic Forum Blog moses magnum - avatar moses magnum

Late last week news broke out of "Aquaman" star Jason Momoa playing the Crow in the reboot. Many people had apprehensions, your humble narrator being one of them. My co-host on Fantastic Jorum (Wednesday nights 6:30 pm pacific time on JOE said Momoa wasn't fit to play Eric Draven. i dont think Eric Draven needs to be in the reboot. The nature of the crow as a concept is that it can be anyone! So they can make a totally new movie. They can tell a totally new story that could add to the mythos, but i digress this...
