Four Marvel shows were represented - D.J. Doyle (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Jose Molina (Agent Carter), Lindsey Allen (Agent Carter), Christos Gage (Daredevil), and Scott Reynolds (Jessica Jones) - while Dr. Andrea Letamendi (The Arkham Sessions) provided her psychological expertise to explore the dramatic psyche of each central character.

On the heels of the Friday, March 25th, premiere of the highly anticipated Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice film in which audiences could get their first glimpse of Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), moderator Jessica Tseang (Little Geek Girls/The Comic Book Girl) hosted the panel titled, “Wonder Woman: Will She Finally Be Done Right?” Tseang assembled an impressive group of panelists that spanned direct involved with the licensed property to experts on popular culture that could explore and analyze that question at the Saturday morning WonderCon panel. The panel included Steven L. Sears (executive producer, writer, Xena: Warrior Princess), Lisa Klink (Star Trek Voyager, Roswell), Barbra Dillon (Editor-in-Chief, Fanboy Comics), Michael Fitzgerald Troy (Going Gaga! Adele #1, Prism Comics), Eric Diaz (writer for Nerdist, Topless Robot), and Drew Johnson (DC Comics' Wonder Woman).

With thirty minutes left of WonderCon on Sunday afternoon, a small crowd of thirty to forty people gathered in Room 515 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in order to have an opportunity to address their concerns to John Rogers, Comic-Con International President.
Last Sunday evening, March 20, RedCat and Roy and Edna Disney/Cal Arts Theater in downtown Los Angeles hosted Studio: Winter 2016. The event brought together six performances showcasing live performances of work-in-progress projects that ranged from interpretative dance numbers, an audience-driven, music-through-motion experiment, and a presentation of movie clips in a new art form called “Neo benshi” (movie talking). And, among the performances, there was one stand out: Run Downhill’s performance in which they blend animation and music resulting in a technique they refer to as “Song Comics.”
The Fitzroy has a fascinating beginning. Andrew Harmer had an idea take shape in his mind in which a beached derelict submarine found new life as a hotel in a post-apocalyptic 1950s Britain. In a world engulfed by poisonous gas, the submarine – Fitzroy – became a haven for some very colorful personalities. As a director, Harmer decided to run a Kickstarter to raise funds to make the feature film and, in the closing days of 2012, through blood, sweat, and probably a few tear-soak hankies, he and Dresden Pictures founders Liam Garvo and James Heath surpassed their goal of £60,000 and hit their 120% target.

Post-apocalyptic stories are fascinating studies into group dynamics that develop from individuals thrown together while seeking to survive in a hostile environment. Those with the best chance of long-term survival usually flee underground, barricading themselves against the beings that were mutated by the nuclear fallout. Rising Sun Comics' Collapse: Isolation is one such story of a group of people who are living in a facility where some of the individuals had worked prior to the global war that devastated the world.
In 1994, gamers were first introduced to the Warcraft universe with Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, a real-time strategy (RTS) game; however, it was on the tenth anniversary that World of Warcraft (also known as WoW) was released as a massive, multiplayer, online role-playing game (MMORPG). In the intervening years, several expansion sets have been released, with a sixth expansion announced last August and anticipated to drop later this autumn. As of late last year, a Forbes article reported that World of Warcraft had 5.5 million subscribers, a Guinness World Record achievement that marked World of Warcraft as the most popular MMORPG among subscribers. Spawning books, board games, trading cards, and comics over the past twenty years, the mythos of the Warcraft world set in Azeroth was in need of a definitive tome. Filling that gap is Dark Horse Books' World of Warcraft Chronicle Volume 1, which releases this week.
