Mike Wieringo

Almost a full decade ago, I had the pleasure of meeting one of my favorite comic book writers – Todd Dezago. He made an appearance at the first ever Coast City Comicon here in Portland, Maine. Due to scheduling conflicts, I couldn’t attend the con for more than a day and thus I didn’t meet him that year – but the following year I finally made it when he came back. I caught him at one point when he was sitting by himself at his booth. I never imagined I would get any one-on-one time with him, but it was important that I talk to him because if I was a fan of Todd Dezago, I was doubly a fan of the amazing Mike…

My Top Ten Favorite Fighting Games

Posted on November 6, 2018

I’ve recently been trying to re-focus my blog to a more personal direction, writing creative non-fiction and tales from my childhood. Yet, the other “segments” I’ve created for my blog, such as Top Ten – still call to me. I feel like it’s time to do another. As I was wondering what subject I should write about for this installment of Top Ten, the idea hit me like a massive Hadouken. I should totally do a Top Ten based around my love for fighting games. I’ve always been a big fan of fighting games, though I was never good at them. Because the games usually focus only on fighting, a big chunk of the art direction goes into making the graphics as slick as…

Cosplay Confessions: Jenelle Beasley Cosplay

Posted on May 23, 2018

Cosplay Confessions is (what used to be a) monthly feature I added to my blog, though I’ve sort of been away from posting for a few months (almost a year, really) due to my job and getting married and other developments. Every month (and maybe twice a month), I tried featuring a different cosplayer and my interview with them, along with photos featuring their cosplays. This is not only beneficial to the cosplayers themselves – because any publicity is good publicity when it comes to updating your fans on which conventions you’ll be at, and what you’re working on – but it’s also beneficial to those who are interested in cosplay as a hobby. If I can reconnect with enough cosplayers, I hope to make…

Cosplay Confessions: Jesse James Cray Cosplay

Posted on August 8, 2016

Cosplay Confessions is yet another monthly feature I’ve added to my blog, though I’ve sort of been away from posting for a few months due to my new side job. Every month (and maybe twice a month), I plan on featuring a different cosplayer and my interview with them, along with photos featuring their cosplays. This will not only be beneficial to the cosplayers themselves – because any publicity is good publicity when it comes to updating your fans on which conventions you’ll be at, and what you’re working on – but it will also be beneficial to those who are interested in cosplay as a hobby. Since this is a somewhat-new feature, I have asked some cosplayers I know to fill out my…
