C2E2 Day 2 : A Thousand Miles (or how far I walked!)

Saturday in the park…no wait. I seem to have the inner dj turned on and I was never in a park this weekend. Let’s just start over, shall we? Saturday was what I tend to call omg busy. I was up by 9 and considering Friday was tiring and I didn’t get to bed til 2am, I was concerned with that. I did the usual post-waking things..showered, dressed, ate a banana and then I was off to the convention center!

Yet again, I caught the shuttle to the airport and then it was off to the train! This time, I wasn’t alone but got to spend the entire ride with Phil (dad), Connor (son – about 13) and this adorable little girl whose name escapes me, but she had a stuffed wolf named Sammy. Phil was in town from Indianapolis and the kids were up from Kentucky for the weekend...

Grimm Fairy Tales Myths & Legends 11

As some of you may remember, earlier this month, I revealed a secret to you. I, girly girl extraordinary, have a thing for comic books. I know this shocked many of you so I’ve given you a few weeks to mull this over and come to terms with it before posting my 2nd ever comic book review. I really do hope that you’ve come to terms with it because as of..well, recently, I’m an “official” reviewer for a couple of really awesome comic book publishers. I ought to ask them if they have awesome blog buttons or anything, but honestly, that’s a total sidebar and not the reason y’all are still reading…right? Let’s get to the review!

For my very first ever Zenescope review, I was sent a copy of Grimm Fairy Tales Myths & Legends Issue #11...

Detroit Fanfare 2011 : Or..My First Comicon!

If you had asked me even two years ago what I was doing for my birthday, you never would have heard me say I was going to a comic book convention. In fact, had someone suggested it, I most likely would have snorted and said, “and why would I want to do that?” You see, I was in the closet about part of my geek nature. Everyone knew I was into music and if you caught me unsuspecting, I’d even answer some sci-fi question without thinking. Now, fast forward to my birthday 2011. Want to guess where I spent it? Yep, at the Detroit FanFare Comic Book Convention. Ok, technically, it was the day after my birthday but since it fell during my birthday weekend, I’m counting it.

FanFare was held at Cobo Hall in Detroit. I had never actually been there before, but it wasn’t too hard to find...
