A Fan’s Review of Alita: Battle Angel

I am a long-time fan of “Battle Angel Alita,” going back all the way to when Viz released the translation of the Gunnm graphic novels, written by Japanese manga-master Yukito Kishiro, back in the 1990s.

DragonCon 2018

Another DragonCon has come and gone! With some 80,000 attendees, it wasn’t quite as big as 2017’s DragonCon, but it was a blast none-the-less. (And honestly, less people makes it a lot easier to navigate). You can read more about DragonCon 2018 here. But for now, check out some pictures...
