Well hello, it is time for another look behind the scenes of comic cons. A while ago we did an interview with Mark Dermul, the man behind the mic at the Guest Q&A's at FACTS (Ghent) and we loved the stories he had to tell. A few weeks ago, we had an epic time at the Winter Edition of Heroes Dutch Comic Con and we ran into Maurice, he is the host of (the panels) at Dutch Comic Con. Ever since the first edition, back in 2015, Maurice is the man with the mic on the DCC stage and he is doing a great job.
Rutger Hauer attended Weekend of Hell! Even though he is a Dutch actor and the Netherlands is not that big, I had never met Rutger before. So I was thrilled to get the opportunity to meet him in Germany. That's right, Rutger is a legend in The Netherlands, but he also made a name for himself in Hollywood. From the moment he was announced I was sure I wanted to meet him. Rutger has acted in a lot of English and Dutch movies an TV series. He well known for "Blade Runner". In this movie he plays the role of Roy Batty, the lovable villain of the movie. But he also played in movies like "Hobo With A Shotgun" (as Hobo), "Batman Begins" (as Earle), "Sin City" (as Roark), "The Hitcher" (as John Ryder), "Blind Fury" (as Nick Parker), "Ladyhawke" (as Navarre) and way more! As for Dutch movies, you might have seen him in "Michiel de Ruyter" (as Maarten Tromp), De Heineken Ontvoering ("21 days: The Heineken Kidnapping", as Freddy Heinken), "Turks Fruit" ("Turkish Delight", as Eric) and so much more.
We have a new unboxing for you! We received the Wootbox again and December's theme was Epic. Want to know what was in there? Check out the video or read our update below!
We have never missed an edition of Dutch Comic Con and we're not starting now ;). Of course we went to Dutch Comic Con November 2018. And it was epic! This weekend was truly amazing and we'd love to tell you why!
This summer, I started watching the series Reign. Adelaide Kane had been announced a guest for Wolfcon. That triggered both Liv and me to start watching Reign. I loved it from the very first second! I couldn't stop watching. After Wolfcon, Liv & I were discussing who else we would want to see from the series at a con. We were speculating a lot. And our top choices were definitely Alan van Sprang (King Henry) and Craig Parker (Stéphane Narcisse). Later that day, we checked the guest list of Weekend of Hell so far. They already had announced quite some guests, but I didn't remember them all anymore. While scrolling, I noticed a guy who looked like King Henry. I googled him, an it was him! Liv and I screamed and shouted 'King Henry is coming!!'. We were so happy! But because he was announced before we watched Reign, we hadn't noticed it before. So needless to say, we looked forward to meeting Alan a lót! Oh yes I remember that day very well. It was in the midst of the summer and we were doing about Wolfcon. We ended up talking about "Reign" and how much we loved King Henry. I remember saying something like: "How cool would it be if we could meet him at a convention?" At that point that seemed like something impossible...We got in the car and then Carola noticed Alan on the guest list of Weekend of Hell. We were screaming the entire way home.
Sooooo... We're almost going to Dutch Comic Con! And we can't wait. For a few days, we'll take you with us in our thoughts and conversations about the upcoming weekend!
Well hello...in little more than a week it's time for the Winter Edition of Heroes Dutch Comic Con. The first edition of Dutch Comic Con took place in 2015 and we did not miss an edition ever since. Throughout the years we met some amazing people in the Jaarbeurshallen (where DCC takes place). This year the Winter Edition will be held in the weekend of November 24th and 25th and they have outdone themselves with the guest list this year. Of course, Carola and I will be going on both days and Sigmund&Tristan will join us on Saturday. In this article we will focus on the movie and television guests of Heroes Dutch Comic Con.... and we will do that in alphabetical order.
This Sunday night, I decided it was time to do another short film review! This film has been waiting in our inbox for us to watch it> And now, in between the comic cons we're attending, I had time to watch it. Beauty Queen is a short film, written and directed by Nicholas Goodwin.
I was excited to hear that Weekend of Hell invited IronE Singleton as a guest! I know him as T-Dog from "The Walking Dead" and I loved his role that series. A couples of years ago, we saw IronE at a con in Oberhausen. At that con, we didn't get an autograph or photo (I know... WHY???). But what I mainly remember, was that he was so energetic & enthusiastic. He was never sitting behind the table. Always in front of it, hugging fans & talking with them. Remembering that, I was glad to get a second chance at Weekend of Hell! I was wondering that as well, why didn't we get an autograph or photo back then??? We were both very enthusiastic about him coming and thought he was great in his panels and at his table. But Weekend of Hell gave us a second chance this year and we were sure we wanted to grab that chance with both hands.
It's been a while since my last DVD update. So I thought it be a good idea to give you guys and gals a special one. Me and Carola went on holiday to Las Vegas and San Francisco and besides sightseeing we also did some shopping. And I definitely did not come back empty handed. This video shows all the DVDs I got, I also got a ton of games and some movie shirts. I'd like to give a huge shout out to the following stores in Las Vegas: Zia Record Exchange, Record City and A Gamer's Paradise. And for San Francisco Amoeba Records and Rasputin records. If you are ever in either of the these cities and you're looking for some DVDs, records or games your in for a treat. Enjoy the video and thanks for watching!
