From November 9-12, 2018, the inaugural Gamer Comic Expo took over the Miami Airport Convention Center (MACC). This brand-new con was slightly different than your typical convention.

VA Comicon 2018

VA Comicon 2018 9 I recently had the opportunity to attend by very first Comicon, and what an experience it was! The Virginia Comicon was held October 28-29 at the Richmond Raceway for the 32nd year, and to be very honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I know TMSM has covered cons before, so I had a general idea of what it could be like, and it didn’t let me down. Pulling into the parking area, which was free (BONUS), I a Continue Reading

The Halloween. The Horror. The Nights – Part 1

The Halloween. The Horror. The Nights – Part 1 25 In a rare OFF TMSM moment, I braved a night on the “dark side” of theme parks and decided to check out Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights 28 (HHN 28). This year HHN 28 was an 80s-dream come true, mostly because of the Netflix breakout hit, Stranger Things, which takes place in the 80s. No spoilers here, but if you have Netflix and haven’t had a chance to watch Stranger Things, I highly recommend the Continue Reading
