TWIP: This Week in Pop!
Amazing Comic Con Style
Amazing Comic Con believes that Pop Culture begins in the pages of comic books. While we march to our next live convention in Las Vegas, we will be posting Blog Entries of some of the coolest things that we experience. You may be familiar with “TWIP” - the sound affect of Spider-Man’s famous WEBBING, but it also stands for THIS WEEK IN POP. Here are some of the fun things the Amazing Comic Con Family has been a part of this past week—-
SHANG CHI: THE MASTER OF KING FU!
The Marvel Cinematic Universe had it’s latest entry at your local cineplex, and this Martial Arts Jam brought the fans back! While the movie had record setting grosses for an opening over Labor Day Weekend, the Rotten Tomatoes Score has continued to hold some of the highest markings for any super hero film.
We want to congratulate friend of the AMAZING COMIC CON: JIM STARLIN- he is the co-creator of Shang Chi. We brought him to our events in Las Vegas and Hawaii in previous years as he also created THANOS, and a many more.
Amazing Comic Con believes that the creators of these iconic figures are the Architects of Pop Culture. At each and every one of our events, we will have a focus on the men and women who originate and influence all the things we love!
ON THE MOVE-
VENOM: LET THERE BE VENOM
Movie release dates have shifted greatly since the pandemic. The Studios have shifted favorites back, and forth- shuffling the deck, and sometimes leaving fans with question marks when they should rush back to the theatre. Wonder no more with VENOM: Let there be Carnage. Current date in the US is set for October 1 release.
Just in case you missed it…
