To apologize for my lateness, I’ve added some character interaction. Tune in tomorrow for the next unveiling!
Hello all! As you probably know, New York Comic Con/Anime Festival happened the weekend of October 14th. I had a great time and met some amazing people while there. During the con, I contacted Graig Weich, an artist, writer, and director, as well as the founder of BeyondComics.TV. I interviewed Weich and decided to share what I learned with y’all this week! So read on and find out about this rising Indy comic star!
Laevatein is the original Nick Fury, because he looks just like him.
This year’s New York Comic Con was the most impressive convention I have seen ever. And that’s not me flattering the organizers, this layout was a thousand times better than last year! All the games, guests, and great gear, I spent my entire Friday running around the convention center, getting in everything I could! Here’s my account of NYCC/NYAF 2011~
Cya next time!
Hey all, sorry “Guoventures” is a little late, pluffei had no internet, and I’ve been slow to get it up for her. As you know, the highly anticipated The Avengers movie is coming next May. A trailer was finally released a few days before NYCC. A few of the actors even showed up at this year’s con. Chris Evans (Captain America) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki) were the two main attractions. A fellow con goer and totally awesome person named Meg (follow her on Twitter!) was lucky enough to nab Evans’ signature. So jelly. Anyways, to celebrate The Avengers here on Moar Powah, we turned each staff member into one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Yes not every staff member is present; there are only 6 heroes in the film, but we plan on turning the rest into members missing from the film. Can you guess which Avengers the following staff members will be depicted as? Check back here over the week to find out!
- Laevatein– will be revealed Wednesday
- Inverseman– will be revealed Thursday
- Reiko — will be revealed Friday
- Starshine5050 — will be revealed Saturday
- Cheshire — will be revealed Sunday
Hello readers of Moar Powah! It’s been a while! Last weekend, I attended NYCC/NYAF, and there were plenty of great things to see. I will eventually get around to posting such material this week and have a checklist as well. Cheshire has done her reporting already, and Silverwolf has already put up a great review of Creature Entertainment’s Forgive Me Father. Here are a few other things to take note of:
- The vlogs are a little delayed. Mostly scheduling issues with the rest of the staff. I think I will post them every
- My presence on the site. I’ve been very up and down in terms of my posting. This is due to various reasons. Most of the time, it has been to work and school. But there’s also been an element of stress and confusion due to personal issues. I obviously won’t divulge said issues because they’re personal, but I think it’s important to mention that it’s been affecting all areas of my life, besides my work on this website. Hopefully, I can start to turn things around–it’s been really rough.
Greetings Moar Powah! I apologize for the hiatus; I came back from NYCC and had a lot of work to do, including some NYCC coverage that will be up later. At any rate, we’ve come to the conclusion of this exciting crossover!
And now we’ve come to the last of the trilogy, Muv Luv Alternative! There’s a lot I have to say about it; hell, there’s a lot of preliminary stuff to get out of the way first! Released in 2006 (three years after the original, it’s like it went through a high profile video game’s development cycle, or something), it’s an expansion of what was originally supposed to be Sumika’s route in Unlimited (a very, very large one, at that). Alternative was released as a separate game because âge couldn’t budget properly. That decision paid off a lot, as it’s not only the highest ranked visual novel in the English speaking world at the time of writing, but it is also in the top five in Japan. So does it live up to the hype? Hell yes it does, though to varying degrees for some people.
After a week-long hiatus due to my having various (mis)adventures at New York Comic Con, Saturday Morning Cartoons is back! It’s week 3 of DC Animated Universe week, and this time around we’ll be looking at a DC movie that is very close to my heart, Green Lantern: First Flight.
This movie was actually my first exposure to the Green Lantern Corps, and piqued my interest enough that I started reading the comics. But does it live up to my fond memory of it? Is it actually a good introduction to the character?
Green Lantern: First Flight tells the story of Hal Jordan (Christopher Meloni), a rogue pilot who stumbles upon an alien crash site during a flight simulation in the California desert. There he is given a green ring that bestows the power to turn thoughts into reality to all who wear it. Once Hal puts on the ring, he is transported to the planet Oa, where he is told that he will receive training to become a member of an intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps, all of whom use the rings to fight crime throughout the galaxy. Well-respected Green Lantern member Sinestro (Victor Garber) takes Hal under his wing. The rest of the film chronicles Hal’s training and first mission as Earth’s Green Lantern member.
Before Roman Polanski was known for hiding out in Switzerland to avoid being arrested, he was famous for making some really great films, including Chinatown, MacBeth, and The Pianist. His films are stylistic and fresh, and he is considered to be one of the modern world’s best directors.
But on this week’s Manic Movie Magic, we’re going to be looking at Polanski’s Satan-is-my-baby’s-daddy film, Rosemary’s Baby
