  • Superfight: The Card Game, or The Best Thing to Do on the Subway

    I first came across Superfight back in February thanks to the exclusive LootCrate deck. I wasn’t sure what to make of it then, but now… I have to admit, it’s pretty awesome. I picked up the main deck, as well as three booster packs (Yellow, Blue, and Purple) at NYCC. After watching a few rounds […]


  • What’s in the Box?! LootCrate at NYCC

  • NYCC 2014 Wrap Up: Four Days in a Glass Castle of Fandom

    NYCC 2014 was the biggest comic book convention this year, surpassing SDCC by quite a margin. When walking towards the Javits Centre on Thursday morning, even several avenues away, it was already apparent that there was something going on in the city. Captain America walked side by side with Princess Bubblegum, while a Ghostbuster and […]


  • Manu Bennett talks Arrow, Spartacus, and The Hobbit.

    Bandit: So, is this your first time at New York Comic Con then? Manu: Yeah, yeah. I’ve come to New York a few times. And there was a big fanbase here for Spartacus. I was here three years ago. It was such a huge ground swell for Spartacus as I walked around sort of Fifth […]
