RIP Furious Fanboys 2010-2017

Seven years ago, my friend Jason asked me if I wanted to work on a new sci-fi/comics/movies site he was launching. With my history on IGN and general blogging, I said I would and then Furious Fanboys was launched. The early days of the site were slow, but then in late 2010 it really started …

Piracy is Killing Hall H at San Diego Comic Con

Aside from a problem with counterfeit wristbands for the Saturday panels, one of the big complaints about Hall H at this year's San Diego Comic Con was the lack of real big movie exclusives. Back in the day, Hall H was known for exclusive reveals that wouldn't be released on the internet...ever, but that's changed …

Current Status of Furious Fanboys

Update: 8/2 7:45pm At this point the site has been down for two weeks and there's no communication at all from the owners and it appears as if it was intentionally shut down without notice. Can't say that for sure, but everything is pointing to that conclusion. If so, RIP Furious Fanboys. Update: 7/30 7:00am …

SDCC 2017: Nearing the Half-Way Point

I am writing this from the Hall H line at around 3:00pm. So we still have about five and a half hours until wristbands are handed out for Saturday's panels and even longer than that until they get to our section of the line. So far I've had a good SDCC. The highlight so far …

Thanos' Black Order Arrive in the MCU With Infinity War

Created by Hickman during his absolutely epic run on Avengers (and starring in the Infinity event), Thanos' Black Order is making the jump to the MCU faster than almost any other comic character has. Marvel revealed statues of the four at D23 Expo this weekend, and the designs are comic perfect. All have their correct …

My Tentative D23 Expo 2017 Schedule

It's almost always futile to try to put together a schedule for a big convention (especially SDCC), but with how well Disney runs D23 Expo and the lines you can actually do that especially if you've been to the convention before. I've been to every D23 Expo, and Disney improves on their line handling every …

The Difference Between D23 Expo And Other Conventions

D23 Expo kicks off this week and I'll be headed over there Thursday night to camp out for the Legends Ceremony on Friday morning, but there's one thing people don't quite understand about what D23 Expo is. While lots of film bloggers are overhyping their readers with promises of what Marvel may show at SDCC, …

D23 and SDCC Prep is Officially Under Way

With just over a week and a half until D23 Expo and two and a half weeks until SDCC, my prep for both conventions is officially underway. Oh, yea. You have to prepare for these things. People who don't end up having a terrible time, especially when they find out about the Hall H line …

One Month Until San Diego Comic Con

Today marks one month until the start of Preview Night at San Diego Comic Con. While I am still going to D23 Expo the week before, I'll probably be doing a lot more streaming/sharing at SDCC especially since they don't confiscate phones in Hall H like they do at D23. So right now this is …

Star Wars is For Everyone

Last week a Twitter friend of mine made a comment that "Star Wars Twitter" died on November 8th and hasn't been the same since. I don't know if that's entirely true, although the last few months have shown why it isn't wise to discuss certain things on social media as you're likely to offend half …
