Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con 2016

This year, the convention formerly known as Comikaze, gets a name change, and becomes the Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con, a Comikaze Expo Presented by POW! Entertainment. I love long titles for things. Despite the new name, this convention continues to be the one that seems to fly under the radar of most people.

Fandom of the Month Box Review: April

The fact that this book is full of juicy social science statistics,…

Its amazing to think that the Internet is as young as it is, having been in some people’s lives since their birth. But in the early 90’s, the internet was the wild west of the world wide web. People had access to so much information and had no idea what to do with it. There was news, porn, people in chat rooms, porn, video games, porn, fan sites, and porn. People had to access the internet through their phone line, which meant people couldn’t talk on the phone or send…
