New York Comic-Con 2016

New York Comic-Con this year took place from Thursday, October 6th to Sunday, October 9th. Its always a big event in New York and this year was no exception. This year Comic-Con had to expand, so I found myself hopping from Jacob Javitz Center to the Hammerstein Ballroom just to see everything they had to offer! There is always something exciting going on whether it is the panels, the activities, or just getting to see amazing cosplay! Take a look at some of the photographs we captured at Comic-Con and the moments below.

Welcome to New York Comic-Con 2016!

Power Rangers Movie Teaser Trailer (2017)

I grew up like all 90s kids watching the Power Rangers on television. While this movie looks nothing like the Power Rangers of old, it definitely is a new spin that caught my attention. Check out the newly released teaser trailer below!

SABAN’S POWER RANGERS follows five ordinary teens who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove — and the world — is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so, they will have to overcome their real-life issues and before it’s too late, band together as the Power Rangers.

The Scourge Review

368 pages

As a lethal plague sweeps through the land, Ani Mells is shocked when she is unexpectedly captured by the governor's wardens and forced to submit to a test for the deadly Scourge. She is even more surprised when the test results come back positive, and she is sent to Attic Island, a former prison turned refuge -- and quarantine colony -- for the ill. The Scourge's victims, Ani now among them, can only expect to live out short, painful lives there. However, Ani quickly discovers that she doesn't know the whole truth about the Scourge or the Colony. She's been caught in a devious plot, and, with the help of her best friend, Weevil, Ani means to uncover just what is actually going on.
But will she and Weevil survive long enough to do so?

While I've seen this book marketed as a fantasy novel, the story follows along the lines of a mystery novel. Besides that it is a pretty decent read. Ani is an interesting heroine, bold and quick to stand up for what is right. Weevil is her best friend and their friendship is strong and unbreakable. The secret behind the Scourge is the mystery that envelops this entire novel. I enjoyed the heroism and loyalty of the main characters as well as the villainy behind the Colony. I do wish that Ani's life as one of the river people had been explored a bit more but the rivalry between those who live in the town and those by the river made things a bit more interesting. I'm glad that this novel ends without leaving room to wonder, as it is a standalone novel. I would recommend this read to anyone who likes mystery novels with some added action.
