As we venture further into summer, with San Diego Comic-Con 2018 in our rear-view mirror, it’s perhaps a perfect opportunity to get in the car with our kids and see the sights, and in this case, some things you won’t normally find anywhere else. As a child, I was fascinated by things that were larger-than-life and the idea of seeing a Guinness World Record (GWR) was always exciting to discover in the news.
It’s the last day of San Diego Comic-Con, and we’re here to keep you excited, even if the energy levels are dropping from you, your partner, or your kiddos. There are still plenty of activities to dive into, including world premieres, LEGO action, a costume ball, and sessions for the artists at heart.
San Diego Comic-Con is in full force this Saturday, and we’re hoping to continue your and your family’s amazing adventure by providing kid-friendly panels and events.

San Diego Comic-Con is definitely on my bucket list. The one time I was fortunate enough to be offered a ticket from a friend, I had to decline as my family had just moved and, obviously, timing wasn’t on point. It’s safe to say I cannot wait to make that entrance into the epitome of conventions, and, as a parent, I wonder what I would want for my kids to experience at the show.
Earlier this year, we took a look at NASA’s Goddard Visitor Center and the International Space Station and what awesome things were happening or ways parents could get immersed in science with their kiddos. There seems to be so much happening regarding the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields that it might seem overwhelming to try and help your family stay updated on things they have an interest in.
“Sweet Christmas.” A simple phrase, and yet, it goes a long way to define a lovable character like Luke Cage. Season Two of Marvel’s Luke Cage released on Netflix on Friday, June 22, and it does not let go of its Season One grip on tough characters.
Jurassic Park celebrates its 25th anniversary this summer, and it is one of the best movie-going experiences of my lifetime. The film features my childhood love of dinosaurs and introduces a world where they could be reintroduced into modern society. Now, this doesn’t mean that I expected a life of dinosaurs to come into existence after seeing the movie, but it left me ready to imagine such a reality and then debate whether or not dinosaurs were a good idea, including the cost of creating them.
In today’s day and age, technology is around every corner. There are laptops, tablets, e-readers, multiple ways to stream movies and TV shows, video game consoles, and various types of phones that put the world right at your fingertips. With all of these devices and kids learning how to use them, it might be difficult for parents to find a way to connect with their children.
“To infinity and beyond!” The joyous exclamation is the same experience readers will have when they jump into Jupiter Jet. The trade paperback collects Issues #1 through #5 and is a perfect example of a fun-loving story full of adventure that anyone of any age will enjoy.
