Mr. Robot was hands down the highlight of my time in San Diego last year. This year did not disappoint, but could have been so much better. Let me explain. The offsite was a small store front window for E-corp bank. This is where you could sign up for an e-coin account. They gave you an e-coin card with 20e, which was a cryptocurrency that could be used at select places around the Gaslamp quarters for free food or a shirt from the Red Wheelbarrow BBQ which was located next door to the bank front. The Red Wheelbarrow BBQ was also a reference from the show and they offered a free pork slider, chips, and shake just for showing your e card.

Comic Con 2017 is officially almost a week in the books, but the memories are still fresh. This year was my second year in a row attending Comic Con, and was by far my favorite. I was able to check out almost all of the off-site events, and interact with a ton of other con attendees.

Another year, another Motor City Comic Con in the books. This year may have been the biggest year yet, as celebrities from some of the biggest franchises all appeared for this year’s show. The show ran from Friday May 19th, through Sunday the 22nd and there was plenty of action to take in. The Motor City Comic Con is surely one of my favorite shows of the year, because it balances panels and contests with a solid amount of celebrity guests. The Suburban Showplace of Novi was rocking with first time attendees, and veterans alike. Check out the highlights from this year’s show!
Friday was a bit of an odd day for me, as I was one member less. Maria wasn’t able [...]
