The Charlotte Comicon Summer Show was held today and I must say it was a near perfect day. Nice and sunny, no rain and it was a comfortable temperature. While it was nice outside it was hot inside with all kinds of fun things to do. This my friends, is one of the top one day shows in the Carolinas!
Before I begin, I will try and stay spoiler free but I might let something slip. Consider this a spoiler warning now. What a solid issue we have this month and I tell you, this book keeps getting better and better each issue. Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly are churning out some amazing work. In fact the entire team is producing some of the finest Star Wars stories ever told in comic format. The overall pace and structure of the issue is spot on and unlike other books, the jumping around makes sense. You have 3 major plot points going on in this issue and they are: 1- Luke and Wedge are on board the Star Destroyer Devastator 2- Han is facing some old enemies 3- Leia encounters something from an old era long gone.
I wanted to post something special today and if you know me it will be centered around G.I. Joe. With the vast success of the 25th line and the follow up lines I wanted to showcase what started it all. Most of us know that Joe will be taking a small break but know, they will be back as next year marks the 50th anniversary. What a time we will have as collectors and I hope Hasbro gives us something worthy of such a milestone.

I wanted to showcase two fantastic cosplayers today; Ivy Cosplay and Yvonne Donohue. These two ladies really get in their work and produce some amazing cosplay pictures. Now mind you, we are just sharing these with you and we take no credit in them but these two ladies are hot. Plus you all know I have this thing for Supergirl. Enjoy the pics and to view them all, you must click over to their Facebook pages.
So, you want to see what the Sentinel robots look like compared to a human being? We can handle that for you! Mark Singer has been hard at work in pimping out the sequel to X-Men First Class and it definitely seems the Sentinels will have a major part in the new movie. The 10 year old X fan inside of me is screaming like a school girl right now (not that there's anything wrong with that) and the more I see, the more excited I get.
Super 7 just launched preorders for the highly anticipated Alien ReAction line. Now remember, these figures were produced from the original molds AND the original figures got scrapped before they could hit retail shelves. Now is your chance to grab something truly special.
