Montreal Comiccon 2016 Part 1

Montreal Comiccon Nichelle Nicols | Gamerwife.com

Although I haven’t been able to travel to any conventions this year, I did make a point of buying a ticket from Montreal Comiccon 2016. Not nearly as big as SDCC or even something like Wondercon, Montreal Comiccon is slowly growing in size and reputation. In particular they’re investing a lot in having a strong video game presence, with a lot of people I know serving on panels or showing their games. The day started with Geek Girl Brunch Montreal’s…

More Comix I Read

Still nursing this stupid recurring cold, hence my lack of posting last week. (Yeah, that’s right, I’m blaming the cold.) But I did get a chance to devour some more comic-y goodness: Lady SnowbloodVol 1: The Deep Seated Grudge Part 1 (Kazuo Koike & Kazuo Kamimura): I honestly can’t believe it’s taken me this long to get around to reading this. As a rabid Meiko Kaji (Female Convict Scorpion) fan, I am also a big fan as her turn as…
