As a huge DC Comics fan, WonderCon had so much to see and do (more than I could get to) and I was in comic heaven. It's a good time to be a DC fan (just don't talk to me about the movies, okay?). And with the Black Label books set to release around August, there's bound to be loads more great announcements coming out of DC Comics. What are you most excited about seeing?
Another year, another WonderCon in the books. WonderCon has always been one of my favorite conventions and this year was no exception. WonderCon is the little sibling of giant behemoth Comic-Con International: San Diego. Once upon a time it was in the San Francisco Bay, but since 2012 has taken advantage of the space and scheduling offered by the Anaheim Convention Center (apart from 2016 when it took place in Los Angeles due to construction at the Convention Center). The programming is excellent. The cosplay is epic. The exhibit hall is huge. And most importantly, the creator’s attending the convention are welcoming and accessible. Read on for some highlights from WonderCon 2018.
It feels fitting to be writing a review of Pitch Perfect 3 right after celebrating the 5th Geek Girl Pen Pals birthday celebration. Why? Because of community! Pitch Perfect is about a group of young women who over time discover the importance of their relationships with each other. This third and final installment of the movies takes to heart that message of chosen family and the support and trust we give to our chosen family as we continue to move forward in life.

Thanks to a wonderful moment at Wonder Con (meeting Patty Jenkins at a Wonder Woman meet-up), I had the opportunity to attend the premiere of Wonder Woman in Los Angeles, California on May 25th. If you follow me on social media, you already know I LOVED the movie. But due to the review embargo, I couldn’t tell you why I loved it so much. Now I can!
