There’s been a distinct lack of free swag in the last few years but that doesn’t mean I don’t find some cool stuff! Here’s the books I managed to get my hot little hands on.
I haven’t finished reading any of these yet but I will be reviewing them as I do. Those Holy Hell comics are from the panel I went to about comics and comic cons in India; which was an awesome panel. I did give them my card and get a card from them so I hope I can get more comics from them in the future so I can review them for you guys and get them some more exposure.
The Invader Zim comics are the ones I’m looking forward to the most. Ever since I heard they were coming out, I wanted to read them. I still watch the show when I get a chance.
That little Batman mini thing I will probably give to the kid or sell it on eBay. It was one of the few things I got for free but I can’t keep just collecting things. I have to clear out so my office can function as an actual office.
Tomorrow it’s back to reviews! I know I’ve fallen a little behind but I have no shortage of some interesting material for you guys.
When I read the synopsis of this freebie, I had to give it an honest shot. I’m a fan of the show so how could I resist “a twisted parody of My Little Pony, The Care Bears, and other 80’s staples.” Our hero, MachoPoni, must journey to the Dark Kingdom to rescue his love, Dust.
I am so glad this was free because this is the exact sort of story you would find on Fanfiction.net. The writing is so simple, it ends up being repetitive and choppy; resulting in a completely boring experience. The gore and violence didn’t help leave any more of an impression on me. All I felt was; “Well, that happened. I don’t know what ‘that’ was or really care but it happened.” It could have been something pretty cool but the result was just blah. I generous 2 for the effort since it wasn’t gods awful but I was bored more often than not.
Yes, I am aware this is late but honestly, I was so wiped from the con then going right back to work. Hell, I still feel sore. ;_;
That pic pretty much sums it up. Me and the kiddo went and we kicked major ass. XD I am sadly(?) the proud owner of My Little Pony Monopoly but hey, could anyone say no to that face?
Ok, I wanted it, too. XD
I went as New 52 Wonder Woman and unless I was WITH my child, no one had a clue who I was. I got more pictures taken of me last year when I was a steampunkish Poison Ivy that was more boobs than fabric. :p I’ll have to keep that in mind for next year.
All in all, I had a fabulous time. Kiddo was well behaved and I didn’t spent too much money. I declare this to be the best year yet and I look forward to next year already! 😀
