I just finished reading Grimm Fairy Tales: The Jungle Book Vol. 1. I thought the concept was kind of cool.

That's kind of how The Amazing Arizona Comic Con they had earlier this year was. It was super tiny and not a whole lot to look at.


So you found it disappointing?

There was a signing at my LCS so I picked this up. Nice little primer to lots of the terrible science going round.

Atomic Robo Vol. 2: Atomic Robo and the Dogs of War - Pretty much the entire trade is set during World War II and I like the fact that this series isn't really bound to a linear timeline. Later on, the story picks up threads from the first volume but the meat of the story revolves around Robo's attempts to stop the Nazi army from developing weapons that are beyond the Allies' defense capabilities. The story continues to be a lot of fun and the art remains clean and consistent. Unfortunately, the only thing that bothers me about this series is the fact that my LCS does not have the next several volumes so I will either have to track them down or order them on-line. Aside from that, I love this book.

Its not bound to a strict continuity. Each volume is its own separate tale that can be read without the previous or the next. And while there are connecting elements, they never get in the away of the reader's enjoyment.

Robo keeps getting better by the volume. The Lovecraftian one is my fav :)

I wouldn't say it was disappointing, it just has a lot of room to grow. From what I understand, it has only been going on since 2011, so it isn't as huge an event as Phoenix comicon is, nor is it as nearly well known. Most of the artist there were local artists with a couple of exceptions such as Jim Lee and a few others. I think if it begins to build a reputation, over time it has the potential to be a pretty cool convention. It's just not quite there yet.

Finished reading Dragonball vol. 1-3. I'm not a huge anime/manga fan by any means, but I have always had a soft spot for Akira Toriyama's stuff. The thing I like about Dragonball is how goofy it is in comparison to Dragonball Z which tends to be a lot more serious the majority of the time. Definitely a fun read.

And once it becomes famous you can say "I was there at the humble beginnings".
