We’ve seen a growth in Comic Con(s) and the size in the UK. Is this a bit of a departure? Kevin Conroy: Well, this is my first UK con so I don’t have anything to compare it to. It’s intense. It’s more than I thought and it’s great. The fans are wonderful. The Batman fans […]

Stars: Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley, David Anders | Created by Diane Ruggiero, Rob Thomas I think it would be fair to say that iZombie season 4 has been problematic at parts but the finale for season 4 wraps up this season of highs and lows very well and goes above and […]

MCM London Comic Con 2018 – Event Report

by Xenia Grounds

At the risk of losing some of my credibility as a nerd, I’ve never been to an MCM convention. Truth be told, I don’t really go to conventions. Not because I don’t want to but because I’ve never found the time for it. However, if all MCM conventions are like the one that happened this […]

If I had to summarize my thoughts on My Hero Academia Season 1, it would be: It has a relatable high school setting, a great lead character, amazing humor and an entertaining story. However, it ended Season 1 in a way that definitely wasn’t subtle about how a second season should be coming and I’m […]

by Xenia Grounds

JRPGs have evolved massively in the past decade and a half.

However, there are RPG fans out there who miss the days of old. This is where games like Lost Sphear come in. […]
