For years the Comic Convention has been the mainstay of the Comic Book Creators, be they the Large Publishers or that very small Indie Guy sitting behind that table in that odd place called Artist Alley. This has been the status quo, you go to the comic book convention to well… talk comics and hang out with your peers.
Yes, you read that right, Elite Con – a very small pop-culture collectible convention down in Florida is riding the waves of social media drama by banning Cosplayers from their show, and as you can imagine across the cosplay community a tsunami of condemnation hit their Facebook page.
I have never made any secret of my bitter disappointment in the DCEU movies and the almost criminally mishandling of the characters and their core values. However what they did to Superman was a crime, sacrificing his values on the altar of building a franchise… When really all they needed to do was put the man into Super.
I try my best to never be political on my blog, I do try, some times it creeps into my social media, mainly when I see a lunacy of an action, but writing a blog polarizes more than it ever heals and frankly with how partisan the USA politics have become, the hassle of dealing with extreme supporters of the left or right, just isn’t worth it. Sometimes though I cannot be silent, and the Presidential election here in the USA has made it harder to be the silent observer and being a second generation conservative that silence has to be broken. So, for what they are worth here are my thoughts of being a second generation Conservative, a stranger in a strange land.
First lets start this post with this – it is possible to be a fan of something and still be able to criticize it, this act does not make you less of a fan, it just means you expected better. With that being said it looks like the latest release from the DC Expanded Universe (DCEU) Suicide Squad has been largely lambasted by the critics for being another DCEU train wreck.
