Whoa!!! Check this out. I am huge fan of the artwork of Rage Gear Studios, and this Iceman meets the Blue Ranger pic just made me fangasm. I’ve costumed as both of these characters too. Just saying. There are a couple people on this site and one of the artists that I have followed for some time is Rey Arzeno. He is just fantastic in all ways! This artist has made many other pieces on the Rage Gear Studios site that you should check out. I’m personally loving his Thunder League mash up.

Oh, if you didn’t know, Rey Arzeno drew my original GayComicGeek costume concept. The ORIGINAL GayComicGeek costume pictured below. Although at the time he was known as Ezra O’Neary. He’s that fracking awesome! The original piece did not have red pants…that was added later.


Holy hell, adult Bobby Drake aka Iceman, finally gets his first man on man kiss. It is totally worth the wait too! Him coming out as a gay man in his adult life is great. Also him being awkward in his interactions with other gay men is believable and such a cute story to read. This is a great title and I love how the story has progressed.

If you are a fan of Rick and Morty, then you know at the beginning of the 3rd season, Rick Sanchez made a big deal about the limited time release of the Chicken McNugget Szechuan sauce. This was done in 1998 as a promotional release for the Disney movie – Mulan. This was just meant as a joke. However, after some lobbying, McDonalds decided to RE-release the sauce in limited quantities for one day, on 10/7/2017 in certain McDonalds. Turns out, they did not release enough, by a long shot.


The official release was: On Oct 7, together with the collectible sauce-themed posters, we’re also giving away a one-time only, limited-edition, run of Szechuan Sauce in select restaurants. And when we say limited, we mean really, really limited! Click below to find out which restaurants will be giving away* the posters, and the select few of those that will also have the Szechuan Sauce on Oct 7.


Apparently restaurants were only given 20 packets or less, and there was lots of conspiracies that many McDonald’s staff took the sauces themselves. The listings on Ebay show outrageous prices for the sauce that are ridiculous. However the reactions of some of the fans who waited in long lines, for a sauce, are even crazier.


McDonalds has heard the outcry and released a new statement on their official Twitter page. They apparently will release the sauce yet again, only make it more available. No actual date was given, just during the winter at some point. The Tweet is below.


I admit that I’m curious as to what the sauce tastes like, but to be honest, waiting in line for hours is something that I would not do. Also to protest and riot over a sauce was over the line. I am a huge Rick an Morty fan and I have to laugh at how outraged some people are over this. With that being said, when the sauce is available without waiting in long lines, I will try it for myself. Below is a McDonalds in LA that someone filmed.


This looks fracking amazing! The CW has already confirmed that Matt Ryan’s Constantine character will show up more in the DC Arrowverse live action shows, but included in this that he will have an animated show on the CW Seed. The new animated series is set to debut on CW Seed in early 2018.

New York Comic Con 2017 was incredible! I saw so many awesome costumes and displays. I spent most of it with my buddies in costume. We went to a Ghostbusters experience and I volunteered at the LGBT HQ booth on the last day of the con. I also got to show off my new Ray costume, which I loved! I still have to make some modifications and I may paint the helmet gold, but I haven’t decided yet. Here’s a bunch of the pics.

If you were unaware of this, October is LGBT History month. I am no where near educated enough to provide insight to events that have taken place with regards to our past. As is, even currently, equality is not any where near where we should be as a society. Our current timeline of events have been harsh and cruel to say the least. However with some very strong people leading the way, there have been many victories as well. Some resources for events or just simply a history lesson, here a couple sites that I found informative:

There is an LGBT History site that provides info on many iconic figure and provides resources. Their website is located: LGBTHistoryMonth.com

I found a personal blog that regularly updates with LGBT historic events over at: GayWrites.org

There is the GLSEN.org site that gives historic details that I never even heard of before recently.


I do want to point out that one of the events that started off the modern LGBT movement was an annual protest event called The Reminder that took place each July 4 at Independence Hall in Philadelphia starting in 1965. The Stonewall Riots took place on June 28, 1969 to which the final Reminder protest happened one week later. The two leading figures during the Stonewall Riots were trans women Marsha P. Johnson and Silvia Rivera. Both women are sometimes ignored or completely forgotten when discussing this affair. I consider both to be such heroic women.


The other sites up for this award are far more popular than my own, but I figured I’d advertise this regardless. The CyberSocket Awards may not seem like a huge deal, but I’m honored just to be nominated. Check out their site and see some of their other categories. I have reviewed a lot of their nominations for parody/satire movies.

Some people hated the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery and some loved it. I was entertained myself and I will tune in to the series. I did have lots of problems, however there were not enough negatives for me to skip past the series altogether. I will tune into it! I admit I am not the biggest of Trekkies or Trekkers, so I did not read a lot more than just a basic plot of the series before watching the first two episodes. So I did not know what to be expecting. Maybe this is one of the reasons that I was not as disappointed as others. Also, I can except the changes in history and canon and the look of the Klingons. Which I know that’s blasphemy for some out there.


The only spoiler I will give is that I was anxiously waiting to see Anthony Rapp’s character of Lt. Paul Stamlets and Wilson Cruz as Medical Officer Hugh Culber. Since they did not appear, I was disappointed. I am a bit biased on wanting to like their characters as I was hoping to see these two openly gay actors playing two gay characters in a sci-fi show that has had mostly only heterosexual relationships. So not seeing any hint of either of them, was a downer for me. However I can wait. I will be patient and I do want to see the series based on many other factors besides just this. Although this is just my opinion though. What do you think? Did you like it?
