SDCC: Our final 2009 San Diego Comic-Con cosplay gallery

I was hoping to get these up last night, but at least now everyone will have something nice to wake up to. There is a pretty good mix of pop culture, comics and anime in this batch, and while it doesn't really focus on any one thing, you'll...

SDCC: A bit more cosplay from San Diego Comic-Con

I've scraped together some more cosplay from last week's Comic-Con. This time it's mostly Death Note and Naruto related, but you can't blame me for that one. Also, before anyone asks, it wasn't like I was trying to create a gallery of traps...

SDCC: Even more Comic-Con cosplay to wet your appetite!

Like Dale mentioned before, Comic-Con is full of all kinds of cosplay that you just don't find at anime cons. Of course, it doesn't quite stack up to what you might find at something like Anime Expo, but that doesn't stop us from looki...

SDCC: Akira live-action not cancelled after all?

Well, according to Andrew Lazar, a producer for Warner Bros. any ways. Apparently the movie itself is considered a priority for them, and if we're to believe Lazar's comments, they're actually working on the script as we speak. Lazar let th...

SDCC: Comic-con cosplay isn't all anime! Gallery one

When I normally do the cosplay gallery thing, I'm in my element at an anime convention. Comic-con is a totally different beast, though. At the anime things, I know all of the costumes (well, most), and I find myself informing others of what...

SDCC: Viz and Dark Horse part 2

Okay, so now that the craziness of preview night is over, I managed to get a decent look at the Viz and Dark Horse booths. Surprisingly, there wasn't a lot there-- at least for me. For all the space Viz took up, you'd think they'd be able t...

SDCC: Bakugan is like otaku training for kids

SDCC: Preview night; Viz, Dark Horse, and Kotobukiya
