I’ve gotten lazy. I have so many pictures that I want to add to my site, but I haven’t been enjoying writing anything lately. So, I’ve been posting most of them to Pinterest instead. I now have well over 2,000 images on Pinterest including a few hundred I’ve re-pinned from other Pinterest users. Here’s a breakdown:

Lazy Dude Cosplay

6 Oct

So, I walked out of the exhibitor hall to find an outlet where I could charge my phone and cool my heels. While I was hanging out in the lobby, I saw cosplayers all over the place and realized I was missing opportunities to get closer to my goal of 1,000 cosplayer pictures. My phone cord isn’t very long and my dogs were barking, so I sat against the wall and shot pictures of people as they went by. I felt incredibly lazy because I was sitting down and shouting out to people to get their picture as they passed me.

I wonder if I could get away with this.

I kind of like this approach. Next year I think I’ll bring a fold-up chair with a beverage holder and do the same thing until the bullies in the blue and yellow uniforms come tell me I can’t have a chair in the hall. Of course, then I’ll have to figure out what to do with the chair since I am not paying the bag check people to hold on to it. Aw. Screw the chair. I’ll just sit on the ground again. So, if you see some dude hanging out against the wall yelling at you to take your picture, it may be me. I am dedicated to getting 1,000 pictures next year. You could be one of them. Doesn’t that sound fantastic?

Sexy DC Bombshells Statues

23 Sep

In the DC booth at Comic-Con 2013, six DC Collectibles statuettes were featured showing iconic women from comic books. They aren’t very big — maybe 8″ to 10″ tall — and are beautifully painted. The statuettes are cleverly rendered in the sexy “Good Girl” art popular during and after World War II.

The release schedule is:

  • Supergirl (August 2013)
  • Wonder Woman (September 2013)
  • Poison Ivy (September 2013)
  • Harley Quinn (November 2013)
  • Batgirl (January 2014)
  • Black Canary (May 2014)

They retail over $100 each.

Comicsagogo.com Celebrates Two Year Anniversary

15 Sep

I didn’t realize it until today but my blog is now just over two years old. I submitted my first post on September 3rd, 2011.

Comics A-Go-Go! websiteThe blog has evolved from its original purpose. I started it to sell and trade comics, cards, and other pop culture memorabilia. I even set up pages with some of the items I had. The “A Go-Go!” theme was based on a very loose interest in the kitschy pop culture theme from the 1950s and 1960s. I have no idea why. It must have been because I was listening to Esquivel during the time of conception and fancied an image of a bachelor pad with go-go girls partying on a patio. Sounds good enough.

Anyway, after a while I realized I didn’t have the time to dedicate to the venture. In order to make an über-cool website, I not only needed a ton of fresh and current content, but also superior web design skills. Plus, I very quickly realized I was starting to diverge from comic books and writing posts about music, movies, politics, and any other thing that happened to be on my mind at the time.

So why keep it going? Well, two reasons. First, it’s cathartic. I enjoy writing, even if I do it lazily. I also love images, especially funny ones (funny to me, anyway). Esoteric or large versions of things like comic book covers or San Diego Comic-Con swag are also a passion because I hate not finding a good picture of something obscure so I figure others probably feel the same way.

This is the type of sophomoric humor you will find here.

Nancy Reagan satire

Why limit the fun to comic books? I like a dash of political humor too. Here I make fun of Nancy Reagan who I am convinced enjoyed some “Mother’s Little Helpers” to keep her girlish figure. I can’t prove it, but you can’t disprove it either.

Second, the blog has been more popular than I thought it would be. I’m approaching 200,000 page views which may be peanuts compared to other websites, but it’s a lot more than I ever thought would have. Google has given me a lot of love, mostly because I’ve added thousands of pictures and included content on things that are hard to find on the Internet such as covers of 1980s independent comics. I love seeing who visits me from where, so I take a look at the site stats frequently.

PBS Mini Series: The Punisher

See? This is why my blog is so important. This is a picture of the extremely rare poster for the short-lived Punisher mini-series on PBS. The pilot won a Parents Choice Gold Award and it was cancelled right after that.

Bellechere, She-Hulk Cosplayer

This is the primary reason you’re here, right? Sexy cosplay blows the roof off my page view rankings.

One of the funniest things I’ve discovered is that whenever I post a sexually-oriented entry, my stats spike. I created a post of sexy cosplayers from the San Diego Comic-Con this year and it has generated thousands of page views all by itself. I figure if I want to start getting a lot more than my current average of 400 page views per day, I should create a “Biggest Tits of the Day” gallery or a “Nude Comic Book Femme Fatales” running feature. While that sounds like fun, I’m trying to keep the blog to a PG-13 level and there are plenty of other things to write about (having said that, my stats have taken a dive in the last week, so my next post will be about something titillating).

Thanks for the visits. Hope you enjoy your time. Feel free to link, leave comments (positive or negative, I don’t care), and take copies of my images. I would love to be given credit if you post my content elsewhere, but I obviously can’t enforce that.

So, as Stan Lee says: “Excelsior!”

A whole mess of Deadpools at Salt Lake Comic-Con 2013

12 Sep

You can’t go to a Con anymore without seeing a bevy of cosplayers in Deadpool costumes. Some are rather clever, particularly when they do mash-ups. And sometimes, it’s what they do that’s so funny. Towards the end of the day on Saturday, I walked down the back aisle at the Salt Lake Comic-Con and noticed that there was a small cluster of Deadpool cosplayers hamming it up for the camera. As I approached, I saw a bunch of other Deadpools rush to the group to join in on the fun. I took these shots and got most of them but I think a couple more showed up as I was leaving. Ah, the hilarity.
