FCBD at GnB , Yellow Princess and Doujima

6 May 2017 was the first Free Comic Book Day that GnB had at their new premises at Kitchener Complex.

No more queuing up in the heat but it was so much slower than before since it was in air con and… WHY ARE PEOPLE BROWSING AT THE COUNTER?

We have Howard giving up mini prizes to quiz questions while we waited in line.

Logan – Older, Fuller, Sexier

Hi everyone.

Before I start anything, I want to tell you that Logan is a very good movie.

I won’t give you spoilers but it is beautiful (and M18 for the violent gore and language).

I wanted to watch it before I did this post because everyone else (Red Dot Diva, HereBeGeeks and even Mothership?!) wrote about it. The it, that was Absolute Comic’s review on wanting Laura to be older, fuller, sexier.

This is the tale of someone in that company being an utter dolt about social media because right now, the post has been deleted but it has sent ripples through the geek/pop culture community who actually buys stuff from that shop.

RDD and HBG pretty much tells you what happened and WHY it is bad. Let’s forget about Mothership, they’re just in it for clicks with that vagueish fact article.

I’m just gonna tell you why that review pissed off a heck load of people.

SCREENSHOTS from various people by the way.

On March 2  Absolute Comics trended on twitter. This was the first time a local comic store in Singapore trended on twitter and it was because of their movie ‘review’.

Dragonboat of Miracles

page 1 of Dragonboat of Miracles

Click to embiggen! You guys, this is the Dragonboat of Miracles, illustrated by DatWorks.

Check out their facebook page! They’re a team of local artists and sometimes you might see their art booths in the conventions here in Singapore.

Anyway, what’s this Dragonboat of Miracles?

DatWorks has recently been doing some work for DBS Bank. Living, Breathing Asia!

We’re working on “Dragonboat of Miracles”, a sports-themed manga that celebrates the teamwork, passion and zeal of athletes as they paddle towards a common goal for the DBS Marina Regatta!


What you don’t know (until now, or if I told you in real life) is that I wrote the story.

Yeah, you wanna read more, click my read more cut.

Or you won’t see the button if you clicked this post directly anyway.

Liquid City volume 3!

Liquid City 3

Guys, it’s the book launch of Liquid City Volume 3 on 19th July, 4pm at Kinokuniya!

The one at Ngee Ann City aka Orchard.

Go check it out because Max is in it! Yeah!! Ok. Sonny Liew and all other famous artists too but THIS IS WHY THIS IS A BIG THING. WOOOH.

Prepare at least $38.90 because it is a volume of WOAHness. That’s the price I saw on the kino site anyway. It might be cheaper in real life due to member discounts or book launch?

On a semi related note…

The Guy I Like

Maybe this is a blatant use of the picture I took of Hugh Jackman yesterday at the X-Men Live, Days of the Future Past premiere in Singapore.

But I was thinking about guys. LE GASP.


To be specifically, X-Men guys. When I was a kid, I really liked Wolverine.

He was so cool because he had claws. I wanted claws! They could cut and dice so many things. And he was gruff but he was nice to Jubilee. And while he was such a loner guy, he was rather loveable? Like a bear?


And then I got older. Well, in my teens and I learned more about the X-men and I found Gambit to be really charming.

He’s the bad boy who really loves Rogue. (I totally liked Rogue too but this post is about the guys so yeah.) Wolverine was more like a good older bro dude to me then.

Like “Hey bro, yeaaah”. The relationship somewhat that Rogue or Jubilee had with Wolverine. Not the type Jean had Wolverine.

But Gambit, hello. Wow, how are you so hot and nice and charming? He is such a tease and no wonder all the ladies like him too because he can be such a gentleman.

He had secrets and inner angst. Delicious angst and the whole thing about still loving Rogue while he still couldn’t really touch her was just so, sooo tragic in a way. (Let’s ignore future!Rogue and other alternate universes or their current powers now and other plotlines.)

That’s some devotion! But he was a bad boy and yet so, so good. With his Cajun accent and stupid pink shirt. He wore that in the 90s, by the way. His brown hair, not too short, yet not too long and you can run your fingers through it and he goes all “ma chere” or “ma petite” and kyaaa~~~


I think you get the idea.

It's Cyclops

And now. While I still really like Gambit. A lot. I wouldn’t go for him because he is dangerous. Dangerous in a bad boy way. I’ve learned that bad boys are bad. Bad for the health and everything too. He’s so tempt worthy though.

Yet, I know what’s good for me is Cyclops.

He’s so reliable and he’s steady.

I know, he can be so plain vanilla at times but he’s the NOT bad boy. Ok, maybe I went to the opposite-Gambit majorly instead. But what I like would be goodness. I’m not Jean, Dark Phoenix, Madelyne or Emma Frost, so let’s ignore those bits ok?

And you want to make him smile.

He’s keen and so earnest and devoted too! Ok, maybe I went on a Cyclops route instead because Gambit types hurt. Not saying that Cyclops can’t make mistakes or anything like that. It’s just less?

Or is it cause I would not be too attached to Cyclops as compared to Gambit and thus I won’t be that hurt?? I DON’T KNOW. I just know that Cyclops is safe and is there. And that’s the current X guy I would go for.

Sarah Does Sydney Day 1 & 2

Lord of the Fries!

So I went to Sydney and wow. What an adventure, the first thing we did while we arrived at the airport was make sure we had our data stuff! I used Optus and Lyn used Vodafone. They’re just there when you get out of the arrivals at the Sydney international airport.

Both are good but I’m fancying Optus for their $2 per day for 500mb data and free local (Australia) sms and calls. Vodafone had some deal like that too but I just had Optus cause my friend passed his microsim to me in Singapore.

From the airport, we took the train to town hall! Pretty easy really, just got a multipass with an airport exit pass and a 1 week pass. We were going to be there for 6 days so, it’s pretty ok since we took a zone 2 multipass which meant we got to travel around the main city area anyway.

The first place we walked around and look-see-ed was Lord of the Fries!
