Today is October 3rd. If you haven’t watched Full Metal Alchemist, that might not make sense to you. But if you have, this is a day remembered by fans. It is the day that Ed and Al, determined to restore their lives back to normal, burned down their home.

Join us as we celebrate our third anniversary with Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo’s CEO, Regina Carpinelli!

I was so happy when I found out the All Shapes and Sizes panel was coming to Comic Con. The first time the panel was conducted was at Wondercon and it was such an amazing experience. Leah Cevoli pulled a Nick Fury and assembled a wonderful group of women to discuss the issues of body image in the media and how it affects women in every day life. It was incredible to see this issue discussed in a public forum and I could not have been happier that the discussion was heading to Comic Con.
One of the great things about this panel is the variety of panelists. Just like the title of the discussion, the women on the panel are of all shapes and sizes and cover multiple facets of this issue because of their different roles in the entertainment industry and the geek community.
Last night, the 1st annual Geekie Awards took place at The Avalon in Hollywood and the show was hosted by the lovely, Alison Haislip. Stan Lee was given the Lifetime Achievement Award by Seth Green on stage and was completely delightful as per usual, singing an ode to geek he wrote himself to the tune of Yankee Doodle. The show was a lot of fun, smart and full of surprises.
