Review Detroit FanFare 2011

Detroit FanFare, the new show in town, is trying to become as big as Motor City Comic Con fast.  This show did great last year with Stan Lee as their guest of honor so they figured they’d pull in the same type of crowd this year without Stan Lee and jumped into Cobo Hall in Downtown Detroit.  The plan was flawed as the guest list did not include Stan Lee and the event was not free to the public like it was last year.  Though the event was a blast for EVERY attendee that came to the convention.

San D Comic Con International 2011 Review

Comic Con International is one of the largest Conventions in the United States and is held every year in San Diego, CA.  This event holds panels for movies, tv shows, comics, toys and so much more. Truly a world wide event for entertainment which brings in people from all around  trying to meet the stars, get autographs or buy that rare comic con exclusive toy.  Comic Con International 2011 went strong and Cowabunga Corner was there to cover it.

"Mutation in Progress" TMNT 2012 Comic Con Event Review

The crowd was thick around a small pizza place in San Diego today, as fans of the TMNT gathered for the Nickelodeon's "Mutation in Progress" event.  The pizza place had large images of the Turtles over all the windows, so no one could see inside.  Images of the new CGI show, for everyone outside as the sidewalk had Ninjas all over the place.

“Mutation in Progress” EVENT

Review: SHELL-SHOCK a TMNT Art Show

On June 3rd, 2011 at Brave New Worlds Comics in Philadelphia, PA, there was an art show held during the evening.  Art work covered the foyer walls of the comic book shop. Pieces ranging from drawings to dolls.  A table sat between the two doors with pizza boxes stacked up.  People could come and go as they please, talk, enjoy some art and even shop around a comic chop.  Though what makes this event stand out to Cowabunga Corner is that the art show was focused on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

World Steam Expo 2011

The World Steam Expo.  Steam Punk?  My first thought was Punk Rock, and I never was a fan of that.  Though people tried to explain it to me, even showed me web pages and videos for Steam Punk, the full idea just seemed so different to me.  I was not grasping the idea of this event, and once I read the events at the expo I almost felt like it was a fashion show with many panels on how to put your costumes together, making the props, and being in character.

Con Review: Motor City Comic Con 2011

Since 1997, I have been attending “Motor City Comic Con”, a comic book convention held in Novi, Michigan.  Like most comic book conventions, there’s a dealer room, artist alley, panel rooms and guests.  They bring in Media guests from all sorts of medias from TV shows, movies and wrestling.  And let’s not forget the long list of comic artist that they bring in.

Review: Killer B's

The first Thursday of every month a people gather at the Main Arts Theater in Royal Oak, Michigan for an event that gets everyone to howl.  This event is called “The Killer B's” where Wolfman Mac from Chiller Drive-In and his crew host a really bad movie and get to mingle with the fans who show up.  Every time I’m in town for this event, I make sure to attend, for the laughter, the boos, and hitting a beach ball around.

NYCC and NYAF Review

NYC Comic Con set up

This review covers two conventions, because this year these two conventions decided to take place on the same weekend.  While it was an interesting idea, it had a lot of down falls for a fan who goes to both events.  Namely, they were forcing the fans to make a choice between the two conventions, which took some of the fun out of going to these events.  This, however, did not make for a bad weekend just more stress than what was needed.
