DC Comics celebrated Batman 80 in a big way at this year’s WonderCon, the sibling convention to San Diego International Comic-Con. With the milestone release of the 1,000th issue of Detective comics on March 27 and the 80-year anniversary of one of (if not the) most well-known characters in comics, it was a perfect time to party with the bat.
Last year, the “D” was noticeably absent from Comic Con International: San Diego. This year, he’s making his presence known, and “coming harder.” He is all over the convention to let you know the Deadpool 2 Super Duper $@%!#& Cut will be released on digital August 7 and 4K Ultra HD & Blu-Ray on August 21.
For the 5th year in a row, Thursday night at San Diego Comic-Con was taken over by geek couture thanks to the Her Universe Fashion Show. The annual event aims to bring a New York fashion week style event to the convention every year, proving that geek fashion can be high end and that it is here to stay. This year's theme was "Milestones" and the designers certainly delivered some breathtaking pieces to the event. We've got all the looks right here, plus the three winners who will be creating an Avengers-inspired line for Spring 2019 for Hot Topic.
This morning we attended the press conference prior to the Hall H panel for the new series of Doctor Who.
Despite being a huge fan of DC Comics and related properties, when DC Universe was announced, I was skeptical. After all, how many streaming content services do people really need? But now, after previewing the content that will be available, I'm convinced it will be worth the expense. I know I'll be subscribing and eagerly awaiting the launch this September.
Here’s where we share what our specific highlights are and where you might be able to run into us, your friendly neighborhood Geek Girl Pen Pals, if you’re making the nerd pilgrimage to San Diego Comic Con 2018.
We are now just over a week away from Comic-Con International 2018. That means the full programming schedules have been released for the convention. This is certainly a shaping up to be a very different year for the convention: just look at the Hall H and Ballroom 20 programming. With HBO and Marvel (mostly) skipping the annual event, there are large gaps of what generally filled the big rooms. Here are some of the highlights for this year.
And that's what I love about Elhoffer Design-- the commitment to high quality, affordable designer pieces that flatter all kinds of body types, the celebration of lady/femme-nerds, and, I cannot emphasize this enough, the inclusion of functional POCKETS in the designs.
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?
