My First Anime: Attack On Titan

So I just finished binge-watching the first season of Attack On Titan last week, and I have thoughts. Yes, it's shockingly gory for an animated show, and gut-wrenching, and the subtitles can be hard to keep up with during some of the action sequences, and everyone just. keeps ....more

Tampa Bay Comic-Con 2014, Pt 3

Here's part 1 and part 2, if you missed them! I was chasing down Spawn for a photo when I got to see this fun interaction: Little Batman is explaining that he remembers Spawn from last year, where apparently they took a photo together.

On Dead Poets & Talking It Out

DIY Pop! Crowley Tutorial

I'm still feeling a bit under the weather, so before I go on to my Tampa Comic-Con roundup, lemme walk you guys through making your own Supernatural Crowley doll! (This is ONLY for making Crowley as you see him here; if you want to make a different character, I'd advise starting with one of Funko's blank DIY figures.) Now, this is dead simple stuff, but if you'll pardon the expression, the devil is in the details. (OH YES I DID.)Ahem ....more

Leaky Con 2014!

Our Custom Funko Pop! for Mark Sheppard

During San-Diego Comic Con this year the cast of Supernatural had a bit of fun with Mark Sheppard (aka Crowley, the king of Hell) over his not having his own Funko Pop! doll yet. They even made him a sad little version out of a paper cup, which Twitter had a field day with ....more
