Underneath the Cosplay – KokoroKristin

KokoroKristin

  It is so easy to forget that cosplayers might want to enjoy the rest of the convention, not just pose for pictures. I like to think I respect the time of cosplayers.  If they are talking with someone, or shopping on the show floor, I will try to catch them at a different time.    Lucky for us, KokoroKristin happened to look up from the back issue bin as saw me last spring at … Continue reading

NYCC 2012 Day 4 – The Last Day, with Cosplay of the Day (of course)

Comic Book Review: Does Catwoman #1scratch an itch, or just bite?

Cat & Bat crop

Catwoman is on the prowl again. DC’s New 52 slips on the leather cat suit and whip and gets a little rough, so be prepared, and know your safe word, because Catwoman is back. Watch out for your family jewels. Like most of the New 52, this book sets about re-introducing the status quo for the character in this new continuity. Like most of the Bat-books, not much is really changing here for the character, … Continue reading
