Oh heck yeah y’all – I’m all in. From Frank sharpening his knife to serious casings hitting the ground, Punisher is gonna be a slam-bang actionfest of awesome. Using Metallica’s “One” is perfect vibe for Frank Castle kicking ass and taking names. 

Check it out, and get pumped. Now if you’ll excuse me I’ma watch this trailer. Again.

Small Press Expo photo wrapup: Con Crud Edition 

It’s the Wednesday after last weekend’s amazing Small Press Expo, and I had an absolute blast! I also caught a mean case of the Con Crud, which has had me flatbacked ever since Saturday night. 

So, to make sure y’all know that I had a blast (let’s not discuss how much money I spent… I NEEDED THAT SIGNED GAIMAN!) I’ve decided to go ahead and post some pics. The political cartoonist panel was fabulous, and yeah you’re bummed you missed it. Plus, I got to chat with a whole bunch of creators – dig the groovy stuff they publish in the pics below. 

Go forth, and enjoy! Or, better yet, read some indie comics!

MAH PONIES.  We’ve been waiting for this for a long time.  Getting to see the Mane Six on the big screen, in their own film.  No Equestrial Girls (not that I’m hatin’), no simply trying to watch an ep on a larger screen.  Nope, this is pure Mane Six large and in charge!  And I’ve got passes for the Baltimore screening!  SYNOPSIS!

A dark force threatens Ponyville, and the Mane 6 – Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie Pie, Fluttershy, and Rarity – embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship to save their home.

Con News: gear up for this weekend’s Baltimore Comic-Con w/all the 411!

Alrighty folks – ’tis the week of Baltimore Comic-Con, and I’m stoked to get to the convention center this weekend!  I’ve got a wicked case of Con Crud from hitting Small Press Expo last weekend, but I’m hoping to at least get there for one day…but I’m pushing for two, and hoping for a hat trick. #allthecoldmeds

Want to get ready, and max out your con experience?  Well, here’s the 411 from the BCC staff, with all the news that’s fit to print.  (I second the idea of using Parking Panda if you’re driving up.  Parking can be…a chore around here.)

See you at the con!

Columbia Screening Pass-palooza: “The LEGO Ninjago Movie”!

Everybody was Kung-Fu fighting…okay, so ninjitsu isn’t kung-fu.  But who doesn’t love that song?  And I’ve got passes for the Columbia screening of The LEGO Ninjago Movie!  Synopsis!

In this big-screen NINJAGO® adventure, the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja (Dave Franco), along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu (Jackie Chan), as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon (Justin Theroux), the Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu.

Hai-ya!  Put on your best all-black outfit, and c’mon!

Baltimore Screening Pass-palooza: “Friend Request”

I don’t know about you, but I’m already stoked that Halloween is coming.  Yes, next month.  The end of next month.  But it’s so close you can taste the PSL, amirite?  (Seriously, pumpkin spice everything is already here.  You know what to do.)

So I’ve been streaming horror movies like crazy, gearing up for my yearly “31 in 31” in October…but I’ve also got passes to some spooky.  Passes to Friend Request, in fact.  Which may make you re-think your social media presence… Synopsis!

Popular college student Laura (Alycia Debnam-Carey) has tons of friends, both on Facebook and IRL. She graciously accepts social outcast Marina’s (Liesl Ahlers) online friend request, until Marina crosses the line and Laura unfriends her. To everyone’s shock, Marina takes her own life in a ritual meant to torment Laura, which appears in a video posted on Laura’s profile. Even though it wasn’t Laura who posted the video, or other creepy content that begins appearing on her page, her Facebook friend count begins to dwindle as a result. When her real-life friends start dying mysterious, cruel deaths, Laura must figure out how to break the deadly curse before it’s too late.

Ready?  Let’s go!

Baltimore Screening Pass-palooza – “Kingsman: The Golden Circle”!

Colin Firth is back, baby!  And I’ve got passes to see him and the rest of the Kingsman crew (including newcomers Channing Tatum and Julianne Moore!) in Kingsman: The Golden Circle.  But first, of course, synopsis!

“Kingsman: The Secret Service” introduced the world to Kingsman – an independent, international intelligence agency operating at the highest level of discretion, whose ultimate goal is to keep the world safe. In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…

I can’t stop staring at Taron Egerton’s/Eggsy’s orange velvet dinner jacket with lust in my heart.  I know I’d rock it.  Right?  Right.  Ready for your martini, Mr. Bond?   Continue reading
