NYCC and NYAF Review

NYC Comic Con set up

This review covers two conventions, because this year these two conventions decided to take place on the same weekend.  While it was an interesting idea, it had a lot of down falls for a fan who goes to both events.  Namely, they were forcing the fans to make a choice between the two conventions, which took some of the fun out of going to these events.  This, however, did not make for a bad weekend just more stress than what was needed.

Youmacon 2010 Review

Morgan, Youmacon Chairman

Youmacon is an anime convention held in the Detroit Metro area yearly for six years now.  I’ve been lucky enough to make all six of these years, watching as we went from the small Hilton Hotel in Troy Michigan to what is the tallest building in Detroit, the Renaissance Center.

This year at Youmacon, they had a great guest list ranging from voice over actors to musical guests.  There were panels, contests, dealers, and free give-aways.  Youmacon went above and beyond to go out of the way for the attendees to have a good time.  I was able to get a look at the different areas of the convention through the weekend and found people enjoying themsevles.

Cowabunga Corner #25

In this episode, I talk about an event fans know as “Turtle Con 2000″.

Back in May 2000 there was nothing new coming out of Ninja Turtles besides for a few T-Shirts here or there. Though comics were just going into their quiet time as Image was wrapping up the series, no TV show (not even reruns)… it was not a time the fans liked.

Cowabunga Corner #24

In this episode, I review the first five episodes of “Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation”. This five parter is titled “East meets West’.

I’ve been a fan of Ninja Turtles : The Next Mutation since it aired back in 1997. So I’m going to be doing episode reviews for this series as well as the other Ninja Turtles series. Here I talk about my thoughts on “East meets West” the five parter that kicked off “Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation”. And though I enjoy the series, these are not my favorite episodes within the series.

I go over the main plot, the characters and a little bit about the acting/editing of these five episodes. If you want to hear what I think just watch the blog.

Cowabunga Corner #23

In this episode of “Cowabunga Corner” I’m talking about the Viacom buy out of Ninja Turtles.

On October 21st, 2009, Peter Laird finished a sale of all TMNT, besides for the Mirage comic version to Viacom. Selling them for $60 Million. The sale was a surprise to everyone, as we all knew Ninja Turtles were having a big year with their cross country tour, comics, and the “Turtles Forever Movie” as well as the release of “Turtles Smash Up” video game. The last thing on any of our minds was them being sold.

Cowabunga Corner #20

In this episode I share video footage from July 1999 of the closing of the Words & Pictures Museum.

This is the Thank you speech to those who supported the Museum during the years that it was open. We also see Kevin get a few awards for the kindness he’s shared with others.  I filmed most of this video personally the other camera person was my sister Miki. I was filming through the full speech, I know the camera swings around a bit from time to time.
