Women in Comics Collective (WinC), is an initiative founded by Regina Sawyer in 2012 to educate, promote and support a movement towards women working in the Comic Books and under other media umbrellas. In their outreach WinC hosts events, workshops and other activities throughout the country. This past weekend, June 30, 2018, we attended one of their events in New York City.
This is the last day of AnimeNEXT and it’s really been a blast we have so much content to push out that we hope you guys think about coming out to Atlantic City for next year’s AnimeNEXT. This weekend has been a never-ending fun filled con full of cosplayers, events, and games. I’ve said this before there is so much space the elbow room is so amazing and AnimeNEXT always has something going on so finding things to do is an easy part but this year felt like there were so many choices that picking where to go will be the hardest part.
We had a blast last year at AnimeNEXT. The question is what am I looking forward to this year? The Masquerade and the All Off Concert. A few of the Special Guest (Johnny Yong Bosch and Kenji Kamiyama) Cosplay and panel selection.
I can’t express how tired I am of seeing black death on my screens. I can’t seem to escape seeing a video of someone killing a Black Person, it’s even shown on the news on replay every hour. I am a Childish Gambino fan and I have to say this music video was disappointing to watch.

The Rock has yet another action blockbuster under his belt and it’s a movie about characters from one of our favorite childhood video game Rampage. I got the chance to see a advance screening of the movie earlier this week with Alice and have to say it was a short movie but the action picked up quicker than I thought. Although I have some mixed feelings about the movie not giving the other characters from the game more screentime I did enjoy the movie because of the characters and their witty banter with eachother.
My Day 12 nomination goes out to Kasugano Sakura of the Street Fighter franchise. Sakura is the 4th female character to be introduced into the franchise. She’s young, ambitious, Super Spunky and intelligent. Continue reading →
My day 9 nomination goes to Michiko Malandro of Michiko & Hatchin. Michiko is not by any means a tradition pick. If anything, she’s the polar opposite of what most would like to highlight. She’s a criminal with a serious rap sheet. Violent. Foul-mouthed. Miss Malandro is literally a walking stereotype for Black and Latina women. So why her? Continue reading →
