Review of "Rise of the TMNT : Facebook Live"

The internet exploded shortly after the designs for the Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series was released in February.  As fans of all ages found themselves split down the middle upon the new look and feel for the Ninja Turtles, as there’s no question that this is a road they’ve never been on before.  I tried to write one story that would include my thoughts on the Facebook Live, designs, show overall and even the toys.  But it got long and hard to write, let alone read.  Which brings me here, where I’m going to give a short write up about each of the things revealed about “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”.  Starting with their

Review: Midwest Media Expo 2015

 

If there is one thing I truly enjoy. It is a great convention, the gathering of fans of tv, comics, movies,books and games alike can join together for epic memories. That is why I try to go to any con that invites me. Last month was Midwest Media Expo, and it was totally awesome. Here is my review of a fun weekend of guests, food and fun!

Returning to Midwest Media Expo 2015

 

The past few years Cowabunga Corner has been invited to different events.  Getting to share collection pieces, talk with fellow Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans, and host panels.  One of those events really stood out, with how great the guests were treated, the variety of types of guests and events, and the mixture of panels that I got to take part in last year.  This was Midwest Media Expo, an event in Detroit Michigan meant for many different types of fandoms to come together as a community, for a fun weekend.  When they asked for me to return for 2015, I was happy to say yes.  Here’s a bit about  Midwest Media Expo.

Review: Midwest Media Expo

Conventions are one of my favorite things to do.  It takes you out of the stress for a weekend and places you somewhere that you can meet and hang out with people that enjoy the same stuff as you do.  Be this in your backyard or across the globe, conventions are like a second home to those who go.  Conventions usually start really small and have to work their way up, though in Michigan we got a new one called “Midwest Media Expo” which road the success of Youmacon to make it the largest first year event in Michigan.  I was at a guest at this convention and will love to share my review of a great weekend in Detroit.

Midwest Media Expo is a new event in Detroit which had a lot of great panels going on, with fun guests.  A guest I got to spend a lot of time talking with, was Andre from “Black Nerd Comedy”.  He got a panel on Saturday night which was a blast.  Here I show an edited down version of his panel, cutting a few things with reason.  This is a fun panel, with a lot of laughs and his introduction the Michigan drink called “Faygo”.  Check out the “Black Nerd Comedy” Panel!

Midwest Media Expo 2014: TMNT Panel

 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has now been around for 30 years.  With the celebration going on throughout the year I’ve been invited as a guest to different conventions and events.  One of these events was the Midwest Media Expo held in Detroit, Michigan. They asked me to do a TMNT panel based on the 30 years of Ninja Turtles, giving me an hour and a half to talk Turtles, with an awesome co-host to help bring this panel to life, Andre Meadows from Black Nerd Comedy!  This is that panel.
