Nerd Con 2015 – Photo and Video Gallery

I think it’s safe to say the attendance at this weekend’s first ever Nerd Con surprised everyone.

Cyborg #1 Review & Interview with David Walker

Some characters in comics have to spend a long time in filling in the background of panels before they can step up to the big leagues.  Victor Stone has been one of DC’s most notable background characters for 25 years and probably best known as a major member of creator Marv Wolfman’s Teen Titans.  The technologically hybrid hero has been the prime example of the “outsider” character which has made him a favorite among young readers who have identified with him.  Now in a larger role as a founding member of the Justice League, Victor Stone is getting his own solo series by critically acclaimed writer, David F.
