A NUReviews Photo Tour of New York Comic Con 2013

Thursday, October 10th to Sunday the 14th was perhaps the most exhausting and longest weekend I have experienced so far in my life. Navigating through the crowds of the con and streets of New York was not for the agoraphobic. At least finding a way to the convention in NYC wasn’t a complete labyrinth, just follow the closest cosplayer you see, and you should be at the con in no time. Everywhere you turned your head on the con floor, you’d see a vendors with so much merch of all sorts of media. A nerd/geek’s shopping spree can get as nasty as a Black Friday shopper. It’s almost like an addiction. “I can stop buying swag whenever I want…or run out of money”. Finally, the patience of Buddha is required for the waiting lines for panels. Some people waited for 9 hours in the panel hall just to get into the Walking Dead panel. At least you could kill time reading comics, right?

Nevertheless, New York Comic Con is one of the few times of the year I actually get hype about. Hanging around like-minded friends, engulfed in all things geek is just a swell feeling. Down below you can see the pictures we snapped from the convention. We’ll be releasing a video of interviews and footage we captured later this week. Enjoy.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Sneak Peak (UPDATED WITH ACTUAL SNEAK PEEK)



Update: After tonight’s season finale of “Once Upon a Time”, we got a better look at what to expect with this show. I think that man jumping from the building could be Luke Cage AKA Power Man. No clue if we’ll be seeing any of the heroes from the movies, but one can dream.
From YouTube description: “Get your first look at “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” starring Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson and coming soon to ABC!”

 


So the ‘Agents of SHIELD’ just got greenlight for a season on ABC. This show will be in continuity with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And yea, Agent Coulson lives. Enjoy these seven seconds of the newly confirmed show!

J.J. Abrams to Direct Star Wars Episode VII (

JJ Abrams will boldly go where no man has gone before… directing the first movie of a trilogy sequel to the original Star Wars saga. If you are unfamiliar with J.J. Abrams, then that must sure be a very comfortable rock you’re living under. Abrams has been the forerunner for TV series like “Lost” and “Fringe” and movies such as  “Mission: Impossible III,” “Super 8″, and the recent “Star Trek” reboot, along with it’s sequel “into Darkness”. Currently, Star Wars Episode VII is slated for release in 2015. No word on which original Star Wars actors/characters are to return. Michael Arndt, writer for Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3, and 2013’s “Oblivion” (nothing to do with the Elder Scrolls, FYI) will write the script for Episode VII. Abrams is currently working in post-production for “Star Trek into Darkness”, which will be released May 18, 2013.

The Holy Grail of 90’s Cartoons: “Dexter’s Laboratory”‘s Rude Removal



Today is a glorious day for kids of the 90’s. Adult Swim has released the largely anticipated episode of Dexter’s Laboratory: Rude Removal.
In case you are unaware of the history of this episode, here’s the excerpt from Wikipedia.

A segment was produced titled “Rude Removal”, which involves Dexter creating a “rude removal system” to diminish Dee Dee’s rudeness; however, it instead creates highly rude clones of both siblings. The episode was only shown during certain animation festivals and was never aired on Cartoon Network due to the characters swearing, even though the swear words were censored. Genndy Tartakovsky commented that “standards didn’t like it.” Linda Simensky, then-vice president of original programming for Cartoon Network, said “I still think it’s very funny. It probably would air better late at night.” Fred Seibert, president of Hanna-Barbera Cartoons from 1992 to 1996, has attested to the existence of the short.

In October 2012, Genndy Tartakovsky was asked about the episode during an AMA on Reddit, and he replied “Next time I do a public appearance I’ll bring it with me!”. Adult Swim later asked fans on Twitter if there was still any interest in the episode, and the response was “overwhelming”.

Now we can all wait for Cartoon Network to release the episode of Captain Planet where he littered…ON PURPOSE.
