I´m going to COMIC CON COLOMBIA!!!!

So I´ve never been able to go to San Diego Comic Con(SDCC) or New YorkComic Con(NYCC).Mainly because I don´t have the money for travel they aren´t ridicously expensive,but I just don´t have the money to get there and stay during my trip.So I normally stick to local cons such as Dragon Con and Anime Weekend Atlanta. That is when I´m home in the U.S., but that´s not where I am now.

I am in Colombia and while here I want to go as many conventions as possible before I go home. I´ve already went to a small MegaCon event in Armenia, but this seems con seems  to be largest convention in the country.

It is Comic Con Colombia .

So I´m super excited. Last year Bruce Willis was there,this year the actress,Millie Bobby Brown, that plays 11 from Strager Things will be here, as well as Jaime Lannister from Game of Thrones,and the author El Diario de Dross.

So I expect a little bit of everything, I´m really hoping for Power Ranger and Wonder Woman stuff, because of the recent movies.Though honestly I have no idea what to expect.

But what´s awesome is it sponsored by the Marvel,Disney,WB,Sony,Paramount,SyFy channel among so many others big companies.

I´m more than a little excited,but I´ll keep you posted.

Mighty Morphin Power Ranger #1

First thing you need to know is that this isn’t starting from the beginning there is no “Alpha we need to find teenagers with attitude”.This is starting right after Tommy turns from his life of evil to becoming a good guy.

What you need to know:

This isn’t a new version of the story, this is the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers you grew up with, just expanded.We have our original five teenagers with attitude Trini, Billy, Zach, Jason, and Kimberly plus Tommy as the green ranger.We even have an Angel Grove 2.0, 2016 edition along with a vlogging Bulk and Skull.

What’s there to like about it:

If you like me and have a great love for all thing Sentai. I like the fact that we are seeing into everyone’s head.Seeing into the thoughts of each character as they try to come to terms with an enemy becoming a friend, or if that’s even possible.I don’t remember them going into real detail on the internal conflicts of Tommy  becoming a good guy after being brainwashed or the rangers not fully trusting Zordon’s decision to take him on(but I’ll rewatch it just in case).Also we really never got to see them in school,Zordon would call them and they were always like yep time to skip class,yep.Or everything would conveniently happen right after class.Also I love that they have a Kobayashi Maru training scenario.

So if you want a little Power Ranger’s with your morning coffee.Give this a read.

BTW:There was a #0 I missed it so if I buy it I’ll blog about it later.
