Our own Anthony Falcone is a member and makes a few appearances on the video. Unfortunately the video can’t be embedded so you’ll need to go to their website.

My son and I attended the 2014 Hamilton Comic Con at the Hamilton Convention Centre this past Saturday. It was a one day show in its second year; at some point they changed the name from Hammer Town Comic Con but the old URL still worked. I wasn’t able to secure a ticket last year so this was my first…

Last updated on October 10th, 2015 at 11:54 pm If you love Transformers, I don’t have to tell you that there is a convention in Canada for everything Transformers.  But if you are excited for all the Transformer action from the latest blockbuster (Transformers: Age of Extinction) and want to get some more “Cybertron-Fun” on, you need to be at…

I’m really not sure about this film. After watching the trailer below everything looks overly stylized, over processed and excessively digital. Have a look and judge for yourself.

This upcoming May 4th/2014 (which is also Star Wars day) is the 80’s Toy Expo at the Delta Meadowvale in Mississauga. And can you think of a better way to celebrate Star Wars day than buying Star Wars toys at a toy show?

Long time readers are aware that I am pretty big proponent of digital comics. Not as a replacement for the physical paper copies, but rather as an additional option for enjoying the medium.

Hailed as one of the greatest visions of Batman outside of print, Bruce Timm’s Batman: The Animated Series gave us a definitive take on the caped crusader. Now Timm applies his talents to a new two minute short that appeared on The Cartoon Network Wednesday. Enjoy.

Toronto ComiCon is done for another year. The vendors have packed up and headed home. Convention goers are busy reading those comics they found, or setting up those brand new action figures. And everybody is planning for Fan Expo in August.
