While there were some outstanding video teasers and trailers shown during the recent Comic Con International: San Diego, it seems like the most exciting ones have been held until the day after the con closed. First up is the shorter of the two, the new trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. […]
Yesterday we posted a block of videos first displayed at Comic Con International: San Diego, and today we have a few more. The most exciting for me is the look at season 3 of Arrow, but that is because I know how good this show is already. Moving the action shown in the flashbacks off […]
The 2014 iteration of Comic Con International: San Diego (more commonly known by its older name of San Diego Comic Con) is now two days old, and already we have seen plenty of videos, trailers and teasers for upcoming TV shows. Below we’ve aggregated some of the best. Let’s start with the video that greeted […]
We interviewed Alpha Team Cosplay about her alternative version cosplay of one of the key members of Mystery Inc. at AnimeNEXT 2014. Jinkies, indeed! Photos by Cantera Cosplay.
We interview Lolita’s Requiem about her Kill La Kill cosplay at AnimeNEXT 2014. While there were plenty of Ryūko Matoi cosplayers at the New Jersey convention in mid-June, she managed to pull off Senketsu’s Blade Flash form. Photos by Cantera Cosplay.
Time to play with guns, guns, and more guns. Because one of the craziest co-op games is making its return to consoles this year, in the form of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. For those of you who never played a Borderlands title before, it is a four-player co-op, first person shooter with RPG elements. Though Borderlands […]
Just because it is meaningless doesn’t mean I won’t indulge myself in speculating anyway. The website IGN today posted an article in which it interviews head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, about the future plans for upcoming Marvel movies. The interview tries to clarify some of the vagueness in the release Marvel put out three […]
Quite a few anime styles catch my interest, from horror, to comedy to ecchi (of course) to even romance if it is written well. But my main interests are fantasy and – top of the list — science fiction. So when I find a really smart, well-written science fiction anime, I just have to share the news. […]
A couple of days ago, Marvel revealed on the daytime talk show The View that the power and name of Thor will for the first time be wielded by a woman. Thor gets stripped of his powers and responsibilities and they are given to someone else worthy, in this case a blonde warrior that has […]
Couldn’t get enough cosplay goodness from the Saturday gallery of photos from this year’s ConnectiCon? Then you are in luck, because here we have the Sunday photos. While the number is less than half that of Saturday’s gallery, the quality is still top notch.
Today, July 15, was the debut of the new 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons Starter Set from the Wizards of the Coast. While the new rules set that accompanies the entire starter kit can be had for free, by downloading it as a PDF, the starter set includes a complete set of dice, a beginner’s […]
The Internet is blowing up over the phenomenally accurate cosplayer Real Life Peter Griffin, who was doing standup to fill time during the judges’ deliberations at the most recent Great Allentown Comic Con. But we were lucky enough to have our own Unemployed Skeletor interview him at New York Comic Con last fall. Watch as […]
The old guard convention in Hartford, Conn., is ConnectiCon, an anime-heavy general nerd interest convention held at the Connecticut Convention Center, right on the edge of the Connecticut River. While ConnectiCon is experiencing the pains of being a convention more than a decade old, it still manages to draw some of the most talented cosplayers in […]
One game that has always been a guilty pleasure of mine is one of the Dynasty Warrior games. Though they may not be the best of games, playing alongside one of my friends made for a fun time. So you could color me super surprised when I found out there was a Dynasty Warrior-style Legend […]
I have been a big fan of Marvel Comics’ title Original Sin since it launched. The writing is solid, the artwork by Mike Deodato is absolutely top notch and the concept is very intriguing. But with one big reveal that happened in the latest issue, #5, I think writer Jason Aaron has gone too far […]
I have a plan. It’s not a full plan to talk about the sneak peek at Guardians of the Galaxy, but it’s a plan. Like, a 12 percent plan. Anyhee, I was lucky enough to attend a 17-minute preview of Guardians Monday night and I am SO GLAD I saw it! Non-spoiler impression: The one scene they […]
It was one of the most anticipated reboots of any rebooted popular media in the last few years. Sailor Moon Crystal was announced last year, and the hype meter pinned, driven by the squeeing of millions of fans of the original Sailor Moon series. The new series debuted this past weekend, and more than one […]
Sadly Nintendo has been losing out on both the console wars, and on sales. With the launch of the Wii U going all the way back to 2012, and two new consoles from both Sony and Microsoft, Nintendo’s newest console does not stand out like it did briefly when it was first released. The company showed […]
OK, I know it is the anniversary of the start of the American Revolution, not the actual birth of the country, but who lets facts get in the way of celebrating? Not us ‘Mericans! Below is a gallery of some of my favorite shots of cosplayers celebrating the red, white and blue. Not all are […]
Coming off the amazing success of the PlayStation 4, Sony had only one thing to do at E3 2014 to keep its lead over it’s competitors — show off games. At that moment Sony only needed to show off some new grade A games that will grab the attention of its legion of fans, and […]
Double Stomp Productions was at HeroesCon and sent us these wonderful photos of some of the great cosplayers that were there this year.

WildStar was arguably the big hit at PAX East this past Spring, with people on social media begging for beta test invitations that were being handed out at the Boston-based convention. We were lucky enough to not only get an interview with Jessica Nigri and Monika Lee who were cosplaying characters from the game WildStar, but […]
ColossalCon is a convention held at a summer waterpark resort in Ohio in early June – a con also featuring a zoo and a baby animal petting park. At the most recent ColossalCon, our photographer KBV Photography and Cosplay was there to capture images of these One Piece mermaid cosplayers. There are two Caimie cosplayer, Barracuda Cosplay and […]
Shingeki no Kyojin. SnK. Even the awful English translation “Attack on Titan” (seriously, I avoided this anime for the first couple of weeks thinking it was a super-cheesy science fiction story). Whatever you call it, there can be no question that it is incredibly popular. At AnimeNEXT 2014, we ask Attack On Titan cosplayers about […]
Way back last October, photographer John Shek took these scary pictures at London Film and Comic Con. Appropriately spooky Chucky is Nethicite Cosplay. We hope you enjoy the pictures, and it starts you thinking about this Halloween.
Somebody call a lawyer! Preferably a green one. Our latest video interview from Hartford Comic Con 2014 is with Echo Endless, cosplaying as She-Hulk! Photos by Cantera Cosplay and FirstPerson Shooter!
AnimeNEXT was held earlier this month, and photographer Adam Etheridge captured images of some of the outstanding cosplayers in this gallery from Saturday. In addition to cosplayers like Kayla Ann Cosplay, Negative Stacey, Inochii/Nerdy Lolita and our very own Spectra Marvelous, Adam shot quite a few groups, showing off not only their cosplays but their organizational skills. […]
While most opinions are that New York City Comic Con’s “Special Edition New York City,” held two weekends ago in Manhattan, was a little underwhelming from both a content standpoint and in the number of cosplayers that attended, there was still enough for Adam Etheridge to produce a solid gallery of more than 100 images. Among […]
Yo, Philadelphia! The Doctor is in! The countdown is over and Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con is finally here. With convention season in full swing, the final touches are probably already on your best cosplay, whether that be something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. (In case you’re going with X-Men: Days of Future […]
After a pretty lackluster showing at E3 2013, then launching a new console last holiday season that was being under sold versus its competitors over at Sony, Microsoft had a lot of work to do to make the Xbox One stand out more. So at this year’s E3, Microsoft had to showcase some new games […]
Continuing with our interviews from AnimeNEXT 2014, we have Trinket Cosplay in her awesome Tinkerbell cosplay from the hit TV show Once Upon A Time. You can check out our other interviews, photo galleries and more fun from AnimeNEXT 2014 by clicking here. Photos by Cantera Cosplay.
New York City Comic Con’s “Special Edition New York City” event was held last weekend and by most reports, it was a good time. Except for a writer for the site Bleeding Cool, who describes in well-crafted detail her humiliation at the hands of the staff of SENYC. Her crime? Allegedly, being too revealing, but the […]
We interview Scarlet Stepford about her awesome Poison Ivy cosplay at AnimeNEXT 2014. Photos by Cantera Cosplay and Alex Valderana Photography. Interview by Alex Valderana.
Among our team covering AnimeNEXT this year was New Jersey-based photographer Adam Etheridge.

Interview conducted by Spectra Cosplay. Photos by Cantera Cosplay and FirstPerson Shooter.
Big crowds shuffled and stumbled into the Westin Waterfront Hotel in South Boston this past weekend for the Boston appearance of Walker Stalker Con, a zombie-themed convention focused very heavily on the TV series The Walking Dead. While there were guests from other zombie or horror titles at the show, including Judith O’Dea and Russ […]

While the crowds coming to TerrorCon on Sunday might have been even bigger than Saturday, there were fewer cosplayers or costumers. With no costume contest that day, most of the crowd seemed to be interested in meeting wrestler Kane, and while some showed up wearing his trademark red mask, it wasn’t quite cosplay. But that […]
The Electronic Entertainment Expo is going on this week, and E3 is the perfect event for our first Nerd Caliber poll! We want to know what you saw in the E3 coverage that you are most looking forward to playing. If we don’t have it listed, please choose “Other” and list it in the comments. […]

The people behind the incredibly successful Rhode Island Comic Con held their first summer convention at the Rhode Island Convention Center last weekend, TerrorCon. While the attendance didn’t meet the crazy levels set by the first two Rhode Island Comic Cons, the fans in attendance got to meet such horror entertainment stalwarts as Michael Jai […]
Hartford Comic Con was a brand new two-day convention held in Hartford, Conn., last weekend.

Our latest video interview from Hartford Comic Con 2014 is with BelleChere, cosplaying as Hel, the Asgardian queen of the underworld and a nemesis to Marvel’s The Mighty Thor. BelleChere, as one of the most well-known cosplayers in the world, needs no introduction as she is renowned for her incredibly challenging and detailed costumes. But she was part of […]
There is a new comic book convention in New England, and it made a grand entrance onto the convention scene this past weekend.

Sinestro #1 Written by Cullen Bunn Art by Dale Eaglesham Colors by Jason Wright Published by DC Comics It is no secret that the Green Lantern books were a bit of a mangled mess in the early part of the New 52. The most recent creative shuffle has seen some new life breathed into those […]
