This was actually written just for fun. One of my favorite online personalities The Nostalgia Critic did 10 Hottest Animated Woman, so I said ehhh might be fun. Don’t judge me. Although I am starting to think I seriously have a type I didn’t even realize until now. Still, the point is that some animated characters are attractive, and they’re drawn to be that way. Disney draws their characters to be beautiful, both men and women. This covers movies and TV shows. When I started writing I realized I wasn’t really talking about how the characters looked though, it was much more about their personality, so in the end I went with favorite animated guys. Who I would probably date. If they existed. Keep in mind this is all personal opinion.
by Bill Watters, Editor and Photographer Earlier this week, Sushi Killer wrote a great opinion piece at 16-bit Sirens entitled, The Beginnings of CONsent. At it’s core is a much needed statement about the lack of respect nearly all cosplayers are shown at one point or another. It’s an echo of the broader effort to [...]
This was my first time at WonderCon and I didn’t know what to expect, but boy, was it FUN! Last year I was all set to go, badge secured, but then I came down with the flu and couldn’t attend. So, needless to say, I was super stoked that WonderCon took place in Anaheim again (instead of San Francisco), making it much more affordable for me, because it’s just a drive up north from San Diego.
by Paige Priddy, Reporter Well, folks. WonderCon 2013 is now a not-so-distant memory for me. Is it a good memory? Why, yes. Yes it is. Unfortunately, the excitement overload from my first non-anime convention has rendered me unable to move. It was totally worth it, and yet I wish I could do it all again [...]
by Paige Priddy, Reporter Today is Day 2 of Wondercon 2013. This morning I set out alone to explore the many, many booths. Where to start, where to start? Honestly, I was a bit overwhelmed by the amount of things there were on the floor. I wanted to buy SOMETHING, but I wasn’t sure what [...]
by Paige Priddy, Guest Reporter My feet hurt. It is currently 10:34pm Pacific time. I’ve spent all day wondering around the vast vast collection of art, writing, video games, and various other forms of nerdery since 9:00 this morning. It’s a beautiful day here in Anaheim, California, a whopping 66 degrees, perfect weather for people [...]
by Connie Armijo, Reporter So the first day was exactly what I expected. There were tons of people lined up and waiting anxiously to get in. I remember seeing all of the little kids excited and possibly not knowing what to expect behind the comic con walls. Most of these kids were probably attending their [...]
by Mary Anne Butler, Reporter The earliest superhero I remember becoming emotionally attached to was Christopher Reeve as Superman during the flight sequence with Lois in Richard Donner’s ’78 film. There was something about him, his innocence and strength, that made my very young self completely enthralled with that red cape and curl of power. Hollywood [...]

by Terrence St John, Editor-at-Large So I’m a long time comic fan. A year ago I had to drop the habit of hitting my comic shop and picking up my favorite books. I had moved south and had not yet found the level of employment I was accustomed to, and that lead to me having [...]

First things first, since no one had a better name for this I’m keeping Shock Value as the title for this venture into opiniondom. I’d also like to say hi to everyone that read my first article (I’ll call this weekend mom). So it appears that my big criteria for judging movies is the “entertain [...]
