Comic Con Excitement

This weekend was San Diego Comic Con and my twitter and Instagram feed became overloaded with SDCC news, pictures, and articles. To say I was jealous is an understatement. I skimmed through the news over the last couple of days but I finally sat down tonight to read some blogs, watch some trailers, and officially feel jealous of all the people who were able to experience the comic con in person.

I think the most exciting piece of news I read was about Katie Cook writing for the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comic series. Katie is a genius. I met her last year at Fan Expo. Well, I somewhat stalked her table trying to figure out what to say to her. I ended up getting 2 of her mini-paintings and her 'F**k You, Box' book. I follow her twitter account and she can make me laugh out loud sometimes with her tweets so I can only imagine how awesome the MLP comic story will be. The comic artist is Andy Price and by looking at his deviantArt page, I don't doubt that the comic will look beautiful.

Hearing news about upcoming Marvel X-Men projects was also really exciting:
* They will be having an Avengers Babies vs. X-Men Babies spin-off - ' puts Nick Fury, Jr. front-and-center in the Marvel Universe and features five short stories centered on as-yet unrevealed characters.' The artwork is by Skottie Young and it's so incredibly adorable.

* Some hints were spilled for the next X-Men: First Class movie. I'm so excited for this movie. I love that they won't just focus on the relationship between Charles and Erik, but they also mention focusing on the relationship with Raven and Hank. I loved Jennifer Lawrence and Nick Hoult in the first movie together. Source:

Lego also revealed their new Marvel and DC Minifigures. I cannot wait for them to be available in stores. They are insanely cute! I've had customers ask me at work if they make these so at least now I know they'll be available at some point in the near future.

I'm 100% excited for Fan Expo Toronto next month after reading all the SDCC news. I love that I get to experience a huge comic convention every year, especially as an exhibitor.
