WinCon: Women in Comics 2016

Hi guys,

Welcome to another review.  I haven't written a review in a while, but this one is so worth it! 

Today was the Women in Comics (WinC) Convention at the Bronx Library Center and I must saw it was totally awesome!

There were tons of artwork, some I was fortunate to take pictures of. There were also panel discussions that were held in the auditorium. One discussion that my friend, Melanie and I attended was the panel about Voices from the Margins: Mis/Representations of Race, Gender and Sexuality in Comics. It was very interesting to hear from the panelists, their views about how women in comics are portrayed sexually. For example, why women characters are drawn with large breasts with a slender figure. It was very interesting to hear how they got their start in comics and who were their favorite comic book characters. 

After the panel ended, we walked back to the main floor and took pictures of the comics and artwork on display.



But what caught my attention was a table where you can make up your story using anything you want - well almost anything you want. The on the spot fanfiction was created by L. Anna Lenz. Ms. Lenz is a writer for comics Wretched Creatures, From The Mouth Of This Hollar, and Soul Proprieter. 

She wrote a steampunk Tranformers fanfic for yours truly. (The story will be posted on my Facebook page.) 

In addition, I ran into an old high school classmate who does artwork for XII Trials, Rodney Sanon. I was so happy to see him. Rodney said that his next convention might be the New York City Comic Con - which turns out to be Stan Lee's last convention appearance. :(

Overall, it was great to see the coplays, the art and have a story written for just me. I'm am so glad that I got the opportunity to experience WinC and I hope I can go to the events in the future.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
