Erika and Vanessa chat with their friends at The Unique Geek about DragonCon and cosplay.
E. and I are counting the days until DragonCon. I have actually got little numbers on each day of my calender and I check them off as we get closer. This is how excited I am. DragonCon is one of the most special places in the universe with an amazing celebratory spirit, your favorite sci-fi stars, brilliant comic artists and ALL of the cosplay. Speaking of cosplay … I will be Black Canary again, and Erika will be cosplaying for the FIRST TIME.
Our friends at The Unique Geek are lovers of DragonCon, too. Every year they do a countdown podcast – 50 Days of DragonCon. This year, Girls Gone Geek is Day 20 and we talk cosplay.
You can listen to the podcast HERE.
Lindz has joined the ranks of the Best Shots Team over at Newsarama.com, and I’d say she’s doing a bang up job. CHECK IT!
I throw in three reviews for Chew, Batwoman and Young Avengers in this week’s Best Shots Rapid Review column. Check it.
A regular at our Geek Lunch table, our friend CT talks to talented artist, Des Taylor. Taylor’s retro style has a wonderful charm, and his rendering of Lois Lane is one of my favorites. So head on over to Nerd Lunch, check out the podcast and Taylor’s art!
We run down our Bronze, Silver and Gold of 2012, and what to watch for in 2013. Check out this year’s Best of Best Shots.
Thoroughly impressed I was with Morrison’s latest issue of Batman Incorporated. You can read my review at here.
Our lovely Lindsey got some Internet love over at Comics Alliance. Here’s a cute, little feature on her cute mini-comic, Pokébutts.
Dragon*Con 2012 was a wonderful weekend and a successful journey into my first cosplay experience. I podcast with my precious Padawan, Dana, about Dragon*Con, my Black Canary costume and DC Comics Stimulated Boredom. Give it a listen, won’t you?
For the third straight year, ladies are coming out in droves to read their comics in public. I absolutely love this event for its celebration of diversity and comic fangirldom. So girls, grab your comics, go out and be seen! While you are at it, take a picture and send it here – womenreadcomicsinpublicagain.tumblr.com.
I am back on Stimulated Boredom this week where Dana and I talk about the two sides to the DC comics coin and other various geek and sundry. Enjoy!
I am an enormous fan of Amy Reeder’s work. Madame Xanadu, while being a brilliant story by Matt Wagner, is made unforgettable by Amy Reeder’s work. I revisit that book often. I am so thrilled to hear that she is working on another project. If you enjoy her art and would like to see more; head over to Kickstarter and support her new creator-owned comic – Halloween Eve.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Batman Incorporated #2, and The New Deadwardians continues to be a top-notch comic. Check out my Rapid Reviews for both books at Newsarama.
I sum up the controversy of Before Watchmen for the masses over at the CNN Geek Out! blog. CLICK HERE to check it out.
This dynamic duo hits some big books for the week over at Newsarama. Click here to check out our Rapid Reviews of Uncanny X-Force, Fatale, and Batman & Robin.
I ran into my friend Dana from Stimulated Boredom at MegaCon last weekend. Post con, he and I compare notes from the convention and geek-out about some comics on this week’s show. CHECK IT OUT!
