RIP Stan Lee

Stan Lee Signs Copies Of His New Book "Amazing Fantastic Incredible: A Marvelous Memoir"

I’m not always overwhelmed by celebrity deaths. But when I found out that Stan Lee passed away, I was stunned. Frozen. I took quite a while to process.

Stan did a lot not just for comic books but for the entire field entertainment. We have the Marvel movies, the video games, the card games, the tabletop games. A lot of stuff. And we can’t forget about his cameos. My favorite is the one in Captain America Civil War.

My feeds has shown tons of support for Stan Lee and it was powerful. His legacy have touched a whole lot of people.

He will be missed.

Not the Anime Fest We Need in New York

Earlier this year I have decided not to go to New York Comic Con. However, when I found out my friends’ panel will be at NYCC’s Anime Fest. I went there on Sunday. While Anime Fest was less crowded than what NYCC is known to be lacking in (I can account for the other days), even if you consider it “anime only” it was still lacking.

For starters, there were no booths for the big guns of anime such as Funimation and Viz, which would have made a statement that ReedPop was serious about anime convention in NY. Also, moving the Dragon Ball Super Broly to Pier 94 instead of Madison Square Garden would have shown the New York Otakus that they meant business. Have that panel thirty blocks away from Anime Fest is not a good play.

And when it comes to merchant section, it just seemed to be some spots who couldn’t get spots at NYCC. I read that those merchants didn’t sell much. Merchant goers are willing to spend an extra $25 just to see more sellers.

If Reed Pop wanted to bring back Anime Fest, they should make it its own event, not a phoned-in extension of a convention that is already maxed-out.

Triforce Documentary: Full Movie (And I’m in it!)

So this week Great Big Story/CNN released the full version of their movie “TriForce: The Path to Gaming Glory”, which focuses on my friend Triforce from Empire Arcadia (the team I’m a part of), showing his struggles managing team full of world champion video game players.

And the best part: I make an appearance in this film!

But seriously, I am glad to see Great Big Story cover my friend’s life story. I hope for nothing but the best for this guy.
