Emily Expo, the Spokesperson for The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo

Emily EXPO-sed

Emily EXPO-sed… The Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo’s lovely and talented spokesperson Emily Expo was kind enough to answer a few questions from Brett and Mo about this weekend’s big event. She touches on such topics as the growth of the convention, director J.J. Abrams, and how her role has changed her life. We’d like […]

Sweet Christmas: A Visual History of Luke Cage

From the moment I picked up an issue of Power Man and Iron Fist the character of Luke Cage was a favorite of mine. A simple man whose strong moral code often conflicted with his personal desires Luke couldn’t help but do good, and he was much smarter than he appeared despite a famously short […]

Must Read TV: Big 2 Comics = Network TV

I love Marvel & DC super-hero comics. This must be understood or nothing good can come of what I am about to say about them. I learned to read with Superman comics, have collected seriously for three decades and talk about Booster Gold far too much for anyone’s liking. Monthly super-hero comics are good. But […]

900 Things Week 52: End of the Line

It’s the last day of the project and I figured I should do a final wrap up, warts and all. Because I stumbled a couple of times during the project, it made it a bit of a tough road near the end. Having given into temptation once, I found it difficult to avoid abandoning the […]

900 Things: Under the Wire September 8, 2013

Due to popular demand from both of the readers of this blog, I am back for a couple of entries before the end of the project. Why did I drop the ball on the blog? The frustration of the project more than anything. After the initial purge, it became harder to get rid of anything […]

900 Things: Halfway, but with an Expo hangover

 *Note: this is the lost entry of 900 Things that was written but not posted in May. I have not re-read it before posting so I honestly don’t remember why I didn’t put it up then. May 11, 2013 I got a significant amount of teasing for the Calgary Expo purchasing spree I went on. […]

The Day Superman Came to Calgary

I caught the first few minutes of Superman 3 as I was flipping through the channels and remembered that most of the Metropolis scenes were filmed in my hometown of Calgary, Alberta. Armed with some screen grabs and a camera, I set out to find the one intersection where the first section of the film […]

Is that Rage I see before me…?

Quite a bit of hay has been made of the appearance of Rage in the Marvel Studios logo in the Shield teaser and that this is a hint that the character will be found in the new series. You can see it here: My hat is off to the individual who watched this frame by frame. Unfortunately no one thought […]

900 Things week 16: Four Fifty

Having rededicated myself to the 900 Things project, I spent a whole day cleaning the Booster Cave last weekend ahead of trips to Cash Convertors, a used bookstore and the Royal Canadian Legion. Anything not sold at the first two became donation at the third. I took everything down in my home office and redid […]
