Join AsiaPop Comicon's Contest and Win A Chance To Attend the Hollywood Red Carpet Premiere of Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War"!

Now that WB Pictures/ DC Comic's battle of the superheroes movie "Batman v Superman" has been released at the theatres, fans are now eagerly looking forward to the other team showdown which will happen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As a follow-up to the last Avengers movie "Age of Ultron" as well as "Captain America: Winter Soldier", the next Marvel superheros movie "Captain America: Civil War" will see friends become foes.

Upon facing a call for accountability from the collateral damage caused by the battles with the aliens, Ultron, plus the costs faced by yet another international incident, Tony Stark/ Iron Man pushes for a government body to oversee the actions of the superheroes. In an effort to protect his friend Bucky coupled with his desire that the superheroes should be able to protect humanity without restraints, Steve Rogers/ Captain America goes against Tony Stark, causing a fracture between the former team members.

STGCC 2013 Final Roundup: The Year When Geeks Prove To Be Bicepstuous

Whoever said that geeks were not too good looking, svelte, buff or simply charming, must have not been to this year's STGCC 2013.

There were babes and hunks galore - from the guests, to the cosplayers, to the industrious folks at Artist Alley.... right down to the inanimate exhibits!

For one thing, Tony Stark and Iron Man were almost everywhere!

Fans flocked to the Hall of Armour put up by Hot Toys and Action City, and there was a line waiting to sofa-lounge with (... or in Red Dot Diva's case.. to admiringly perv) this particular Iron Man. It is not stationed at a booth called Play Imaginative for nothin', right?

STGCC 2013: Sitting Down With Adi Granov (SGCollect Exclusive!)

During last weekend's STGCC, Red Dot Diva was really busy assisting David Mack with his schedule and very HOT booth! (You might have spotted her!)

So, she was not able to make it for the allocated interview slot with comic artist Adi Granov. She did however, manage to snag a few questions with him on Sunday afternoon. And a separate article will soon be published relating to that.

In the meantime, here is Article "KOPE" #4, courtesy from Agent W, who was able to attend the media interview with Adi Granov on behalf of our Glamouring Bloggers' Alliance.

--------------------------------

Iron Man conve... I mean STGCC 
Adi Granov walked into the interview room looking extremely relaxed and like any convention goer, but upon a little hindsight, I dare say, he is probably the reason why this year’s convention is almost entirely Iron Man centric, (as noted by Ed & Diva). With a little exposition, the whole iron Man phenomenon was probably due to this man! (I can hear Diva asking; not RDJ??) More on that later…

With a calm smile, he tells us he started reading comics when he was young, and went into University to be an illustrator. He began building his portfolio, showing it around until he got a little comic work, and, you know what they say, the rest is history. Marvel saw his work and invited him in and Iron Man! Happened.

STGCC 2013: First Wave of Guest Announcements!


Red Dot Diva received an email yesterday morning that gave her chills.

The totally squeally kind of happy thrill-chills. 'Coz the email contained the first wave of official guest announcements for this year's STGCC!

For some weeks now, her friends have lamented about the lack of updates and were fidgety for any kind of info. Although bits and pieces, and some rather obvious hints have filtered through the Internet.

A few weeks back, Red Dot Diva's aquaintance, local cosplayer Victoria noticed and posted an announcement that was on Vampy Bit Me's website. The popular US-based cosplayer had listed her upcoming appearances and mentioned Singapore. By that, one could already put one's money down that she would be here for STGCC.

And Red Dot Diva's knew some people who knew some things but were sworn to secrecy. To give them credit, they were pretty respectful of the knowledge they had, and most of news not been leaked in a "Stomp" kind of way.

Now, who are the other guests announced that got Red Dot Diva's in a tizzy?

Star-Gazing At The "Iron Man 3" Red Carpet Premiere in LA

So, yet again, Red Dot Diva is living vicariously through her good friend, Chelle and her red carpet adventures.

Here's her star-studded report from the recent "Iron Man 3" premiere at the El Capitan!

FCBD 2013: The Day When Diva Grabbed Free Comics (and Iron Man)

This is the third FCBD year that Red Dot Diva nerded out and went store-hopping for free comics.

There were plans to meet super early for breakfast with pals, but she forgot to charge her batts after the previous night's epic geek showdown with writer Adam Glass. And so, morning kopi was downed at home while rushing around getting her things ready for a day of free comic book shopping.

Having learned their tough lesson from last year, Red Dot Diva, Melvin, Alvin from Here Be Geeks and Sarah, made sure that Kinokuniya mainstore was their very first FCBD stop, before all the packs of free comics ran out.

SDCC 2012: Less Movie Madness This Year – Good or Bad?

... Let's just leave the Sparkly Vapid Vamps out of the blog post.

Precious squee time should be reserved for a certain Genius-Billionaire-Playboy-Philantropist, A Virtual Reality Mind Trip and possibly a pair of Furry Feet. Although it is highly unlikely there will be any Vulcans to ogle at.

In the last couple of years, regular SDCC-goers have long felt that the hype concerning movies was overpowering the "true meaning" of Comic-Con.

The Hollywood glitter invading the city for SDCC had led to unbelievably long lines, with some people even staying overnight in sleeping bags just to ensure they get good seats for the panels in Hall H or Ballroom 20.

Last year’s SDCC (which Red Dot Diva did not manage to attend) saw a number of studios promoting movies, like “The Immortals”, “The Amazing Spider-Man”, “The Avengers”, “Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1” (ugh) and “Prometheus”. There was also a red carpet premiere for “Cowboys & Aliens” which starred Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford. Unfortunately, that movie did not do so well at the box office when it was released later that year.
