As crazy as it sounds, comic conventions used to be about comics. If not comics, then comic-related movies or shows, science fiction and sometimes even board games. Now, thanks to Hollywood, comic conventions come with a red carpet, “E! News” coverage, and a swarm of fans who’ve never picked up a comic in their life.  The first and only time I attended the San Diego Comic-Con was about a decade ago. It was the biggest c... Read more »

  Death hurts. There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. It hurts when a pet scurries off to the great big park in the sky. It hurts when a sick family member slips away. It hurts when a celebrity’s spotlight turns off after the last bow. But there’s an entirely new sensation to experience when a classmate loses their life. Of course, it hurts.

Dear Mr. Reidy, Rest assured, I do not regard Mr. Trump with cynicism—that would be giving him too much credit. However I do reserve a healthy dose of derision and contempt for the man. The reason being that time after time he has shown a dangerous disregard for the truth that goes beyond the usual puffery and pandering politicians employ. Not knowing better, one would be inclined to call Mr. Trump a pathological liar. H... Read more »

Oh, well, you know, I think you really blew it on that rather sophomoric op­ed piece of yours that was printed in last week's edition of Daily 49er. Reading it, what I got from all your tongue­in- cheek irony was that no damage to our prestige over the past eight years has occurred, that our national security is not compromised by a porous border, that neither China nor terrorism are posing any sort of problems... Read more »

As the calendar changes into the second month of the year, we all know just what lies around the corner- Valentine’s Day. While couples across the nation rejoice, those who aren’t in relationships or unable to spend the holiday with their sweetheart can feel the need to shy away from the pink and red. Heart-shaped everything out on display and cheesy exchanges between couples that are barely Facebook official can be na... Read more »
