News and Upcoming Events

Amazing Aloha Comic Con Cancelled and Re-Scheduled to February 22-24, 2019 at the Hawaii Convention Center

In case you missed the news, the Hawaiian islands had a close encounter with hurricane Lane during this past week. The big island of Hawaii on the Hilo side took on quite a bit of flood damage, but for the most part we were pretty lucky and we avoided what could have been a much larger disaster.  At one point Lane was a category 5 hurricane with 150+ MPH winds, and would have done serious damage if it had reached the islands with that intensity, but we were fortunate and Lane shrank down and swerved away before making landfall.

However, Amazing Aloha Comic Con was cancelled because Lane was approaching the islands, and so was re-scheduled to early 2019 instead.

MOPOP – Marvel Universe of Super Heroes Exhibition

I visited the Marvel Universe of Super Heroes Exhibition at the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle this past weekend, and I wanted to share some of the photos of the assorted displays and original art and movie props that caught my eye. The exhibit is open through January 9, 2019 and if you’re able to drop by and see it, I highly recommend it.

There were several life-sized figures of Marvel characters that you could pose with:

There were also quite a few movie props and costumes from the recent Marvel movies.

I was most impressed by the assortment of amazing original artwork from many of the classic ‘Silver Age’ comics.

All in all, if you’re a fan of Marvel comics, there’s a lot here to see and appreciate.  You can visit the website for the exhibition here.
