Saving The World One Fan At A Time


Starfest 2008 Superhero Movie News Panel

I know, clearly i’m catching up on a lot of old editing I needed to do.

Flashback to the biggest year in Superhero Movies ever! 2008 was packed, this is our panel from that year’s Starfest, it was the last time Jefferson came back to Denver for the con.

It’s a good hour, it’s fun to see what we got right and what we got wrong, and it had a lot of good Q&A with the audience.

Starfest 2010 Movie News Panel

My news segment from April 2010 at the Starfest Convention in Denver CO. Obviously stuff changes on a daily basis, and things have changed in the month since I did this, but it’s a good primer on the current info. Also I think it was entertaining and possibly the best presentation i’ve given of this type.

Goodbye old design.

Superhero Cinema is entering a new era, i’ve moved the site to a new platform, WordPress, I hope you like the new design for the site.  It should still keep you informed about the latest news from around the web, but also help highlight our own content better.  There should also be none of the glitches caused by our old software.

Please go ahead and use the Contact Us form to let me know how you like the new look and the new functionality.

In the meantime, the old design server us well for 3 years, and all through our podcast time.  Here’s a last look at that:
