The 2013 NJ SUPERHERO WEEKEND AND WONDER WOMAN DAY to benefit SAFE in Hunterdon will be hosted by Comic Fusion on October 5-6 in Flemington’s Turntable Junction shopping village. Comic Fusion will auction superhero sketches to raise money and awareness for this domestic violence charity.
This is not a “comic” con. It’s definitely a “pop culture” con. Half the slated guests are actors and entertainers who are not comic book creators. The great thing is that the comic creators they do have booked are amazingly talented people that love the medium, support each other’s work, and are happy to meet fans.
Prior to the 2013 alleged assault against KaythulhuFerret, Shotwell already had a felony conviction which included “Sexual Conduct with a Minor” and “Attempting to Commit Dangerous Crimes Against Children,” according to the rap sheet on mugshots.com. KaythulhuFerret said in her video that she was barely 18. Age does not justify drugging someone and raping her.
The issue and debates of sexual harassment have really taken the stage in 2013. There are incredible awareness campaigns and efforts by people who will no longer sit idly by and watch our beloved social scenes (IRL and online) stained by those few bad apples spoiling an entire industry’s good time.
A story where one mightier than thou golden boy feels the need to hunt down his demonically cursed siblings and go after dear ol’ dad too is just the sort of thing that I’m willing to try. Never did I think that I’d end up officially modeling as Annie Belle with recruited cosplayer Bryan Treakle to be Silas.
As always it’s such a pleasure to welcome comic writer JEREMY HOLT back to VODKA O’CLOCK. He brings us up to date on the AFTER HOUDINI series, his new one-shot with Chris Peterson called PULP, and his part of the Dynamite Comics anthology PATHFINDER: GOBLINS.
I have a very special appearance coming up at the Richmond Virginia Comic Con where I’ll be part of a Hollywood style photoshoot for James Kuhoric’s DEAD IRONS comic.
Back on the show and taking two hours out of his insane schedule is DIRK MANNING, author of WRITE OR WRONG: A WRITER’S GUIDE TO CREATING COMICS and many comics such as NIGHTMARE WORLD and TALES OF MR. RHEE. We spend quite a bit of time chatting about each project and recapping our experience together at Detroit Fanfare. Philosophy, heroism and faith cap off our visit.
Jeff Mach Productions and Circuit Six held the first GEEK CREATION SHOW in Piscataway, NJ last weekend. The objective of the show was to educate attendees through panels that covered a massive array of topics from The History of Chocolate to Science/Math Myths to interactive discussions like Doctor Who trivia or Star Wars vs. Star Trek. To say it brief: It was a blast!
This weekend I went with Amber to the Geek Creation Show. It was a very interesting show. Not quite the same feel as the usual Jeff Mach event. But still having some of the same concepts that make Jeff’s shows unique.
It’s great to welcome back one of my favorite people in the world, comics writer PAUL ALLOR, to this week’s episode of VODKA O’CLOCK. Paul fills us in on his latest creator owned comic STRANGE NATION and his new franchise work on TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES and G.I. JOE. plus Dynamite Comics’ anthology PATHFINDER: GOBLINS.
If you didn’t know, consider yourself informed, that there is an International GoTopless Day. This year it’s August 25, 2013.
Joining the Vodka O’Clock Podcast this week is Zack Kruse who is the organizer of the Appleseed Comics and Art Convention in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Finally got around to reviewing the first two chapters of the brand new series from Action Lab Entertainment, VAMPLETS based on the popular toy line created by Gayle Middleon.
This post is not about achievements at all. It’s all about personal connections, their emotions and what it means to be remorseful. I’ve declared today AMBER AMNESTY DAY.
VODKA O’CLOCK 1331 with @JordanStratford on Wollstonecraft, female protagonists & scientists, & Wonder Woman
Jordan recently ran a very successful Kickstarter campaign to fund his book series WOLLSTONECRAFT, a fictionalized tale about young Ada Lovelace and her best friend Mary Shelley with cameos by other historical figures. He also has great theories on Wonder Woman.
A couple weeks ago, the nerd rock band THE DOUBLECLICKS had an open call for video and photo submissions for women and their male supporters to denounce the #FakeGeekGirl insult. They simply didn’t have the room for everyone’s clips and photos. So they made a tumblr where anyone can send in their response.
This is not a post complaining or about self pity. It is about reflection and discovery. Don’t misunderstand those words. Neither reflection nor discovery have to be happy joyful components to one’s life but they are necessary.
Adam’s first foray into comics was editing the Popgun anthology which then immediately won a Harvey Award and an Eisner Award in consecutive years. He still had to face the submission process in a later volume of the anthology and faced rejection.
Jason Miller presented his lecture on scrying, THE ART OF SEEING BEYOND ORDINARY PERCEPTION. This is merely a brief recap of the lecture because it’s not for me to recite every detail taught by an expert.
