“Nebula” #1

“[Since] the movies kind of reinvigorated interest in her, we’ve gotten to see her pop up more and more in the comics. And now, here’s her solo title where all we do is really dive deep and explore who she is and why she does what she does. That’s kind of my jam,” Ayala said in an exclusive interview with Refinery29. “I really want to kind of showcase how cool Nebula is even though she’s a bad guy, and how much more complex she is than what we might assume….it was my mission to try and show who she is on a kind of two-dimensional level. Being able to be in her head and fill out all the corners is really given me an appreciation for her, and I want other people to also love her and want her to do her best.”

NEBULA #1 by Vita Ayala and Claire Roe is on sale this February! For more information on the series, head to Marvel.com. To find a comic shop near you, visit www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook.

Exploring Flame Con 2018 @ Sheraton Times Square

Fans of our convention explorations and who have been watching our regional events calendar know that this past weekend was when both the Liberty City Anime Con and the Flame Con were happening. After some productive time at LCAC, it was time for me to head over to Flame Con and see what was going on there. For those in the unaware, Flame Con is the world’s largest queer comic con and it was not only returning for its third year event but also had moved to Manhattan and would take place at The Sheraton. Last year it was down near my old college at the Brooklyn Marriott and I didn’t mind that since it was a quick trip home but I digress, that is a tale already spoken so let’s get down to the new.

Yes there was a bag and utility belt check because that is the world we live in today I’m afraid. To me this is not an issue and I would rather be safe wherever I go. Nice work folks. So as you might know, this will be mostly a photographic display but I will be loading in as many of the folks website links or Official Facebook/Instagram accounts for you to follow them. Enjoy.
