[SDCC 2014] Marvel Panel – Avengers: Age of Ultron

The Marvel panel (specifically the Avengers: Age of Ultron portion) at San Diego Comic-Con was one of the most eagerly awaited, hard-to-get-into, and most talked about event of the convention. Thanks to photographer Hilary Papiro, we have dozens of photos of the panel, plus a video of the cast (Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Paul Bettany) as they took the stage to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ’till You Get Enough.”

Tech Review – MoblNRG Lithium Ion Battery

While we certainly enjoyed covering SDCC this year, we’re always battling one thing: our battery life on our smartphones and electronics. This year was no different. Between doing social networking, recording videos and taking pictures it was a chore to keep the smartphones charged.

What’s worse is when you discover you have less then 50% battery and it’s not even the middle of the day.

Luckily for us, a certain booth caught our eyes and came to the rescue, promising  a mobile solution to charging your devices. MoblNRG stepped up and took the SDCC challenge. So how did the MoblNRG lithium ion battery hold up? Did it give us the extra charge we needed to get through SDCC?

Comic Issues #180 – Gearing Up For SDCC Part 3

It’s finally here! San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is upon us, and Comic Issues will be there every day: roaming the sales floor, photographing cosplay, interviewing actors and artists and writers, and looking for that perfect print or figurine to buy for our own geek lairs.

Join Anthony, Elizabeth, and Leland from Movie-Issues in our third and final installment of Gearing Up For Comic-Con, as we ask the all important questions: did Han Solo’s busted ankle cost us a Star Wars panel; are we going to the Masquerade; which panels are we standing in line for; what’s up with Batgirl’s new costume; why is the internet talking about a ball pit; and can you or can you not kick people if they’re in your way? (No. You can’t. Leland, I’m talking to you. Behave.)
