MARVEL CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS AT NYCC
The marvelentertainment booth at this year’s newyorkcomiccon was by far my favorite what with all the guest appearances, exclusive merch, and LOTS of awesome giveaways. They also had playable versions of the upcoming fighter Marvel Contest of Champions for iOS and Android. When I first saw it being played on a monitor I actually thought it was a PS3 game - that’s how good it looked. Check it out in the clip below.

GETTING JIGGY WITH ‘JUST DANCE 2015’ AT NEW YORK COMIC CON
While perusing the show floor at NYCC this past weekend I watched a few people try out Just Dance 2015 on stage and one of them looked like he was having so much fun that I just had to talk to him on camera. It turns out, he goes by the name Mo Chocolate and has quite the YouTube following (“The most chocolate flavored channel on YouTube.”) uploading videos of himself playing other Just Dance games and getting into various other hijinks. The dude is even in Just Dance 2015!
Check out the short video below to see me whip out my magic fingers and show Mo Chocolate my nasty moves.

SPOT-ON PETER GRIFFIN IMPERSONATOR DOES STAND-UP AT COSPLAY CONTEST
At the 2014 Allentown Comic Con there was a cosplay contest judged by celebrity cosplayers Riki Lecotey a.k.a. “Riddle” and Nicole Marie Jean. To keep the crowd entertained while they deliberated, they asked a spot-on Peter Griffin cosplayer to take the mic and he completely KILLED it! Fox should hire this guy to go on tour or something.
Check out this real life Peter Griffin in the video below.

WIZARD WORLD PHILLY 2014 HIGHLIGHT VIDEO [ALBOTASTV]

Wizard World Philly was a blast as always. We saw some outstanding cosplayers and even got to interview a few including the stunning & talented lilyledeux. We saw some rad toys, spent way too much money on comics, and I can’t wait to do it all over again next year!

Enjoy a short video of our Wizard World adventure below and subscribe to us on YouTube if you like what you see.

We have some more Wizard World Philly 2014 videos coming soon, so stay tuned!

[ALBOTASTV] WEEKLY COMIC PICKS 6.18.2014

WEEKLY COMIC REVIEWS 6.11.2014

Here’s our latest video review featuring comics released on Wednesday, June 11 2014. Gonna’ be completely honest, most of this week’s reads were complete caca and garboski with a few gems sprinkled in. Check out the video below to watch us talk smack on the turds and gush over the good stuff.

As always, comments on these are truly appreciated and you can help our YouTube channel grow by subscribing and clicking that thumbs-up button. It really, really helps.

Also, this show needs a catchy name. Weekly Comic Picks was dumb since it sounds like we’re recommending top picks, so this week I changed it to Weekly Comic Reviews, but that’s sooooo boooooring. I’m torn between Comic Book Casserole because I thought of it while making a casserole the other day, or Comic Book Real Talk because it has sass and we don’t mess around with silly scores, but that just sounds kind of generic.

Whoever comes up with the best name in the comments section wins a prize.

WEEKLY COMIC PICKS FOR 6.4.2014

This week we review Nailbiter #2, Rise of the Magi #1, Big Trouble In Little China #1, Black Widow #7, and Original Sin #3.

We took some advice from one of our viewers and tried to make this episode as spoiler-free as possible which also makes for shorter, more digestible episodes. Check it out and let us know what you think.

If you like these videos, please show your support by giving them a Thumbs-Up, leaving a comment, and/or subscribing to our channel. It would really mean a lot, plus it’s nice to have some form of interaction with you guys so we know that other people besides us are into this kind of stuff.

We hope you like this episode. Until next week, let us know what you’re reading in the comments!

PAST EPISODES
WEEKLY COMIC PICKS FOR 5-28-2014
Okay, so I’m pretty late in getting this one up. My bad. Life and stuff.
Anyway, this week we talk about Trees #1, Inhuman #2, and Avengers #30. We also do an all new Quick Picks segment featuring C.O.W.L. #1 and Southern Bastards #2.
Check out this week’s (i.e. last week’s) video below.

We got some awesome comic recommendations from you guys on the last episode, so we’ll try and feature at least one in this week’s episode. Which should TOTALLY be up on time this week if I don’t slack like a jerky loser.
In the mean time, go read Matt Fraction’s super ultra amazing Hawkeye. If you think superheroes are dumb, you will love it. If you love superheroes, Hawkeye will become your new favorite. Get the fancy hardcover collecting the first 11 issues HERE or the cheap paperback version with issues 1-5 here.

WEEKLY COMICS PICKS - 5.7.2014
If you&#8217;re looking for some new comics to read, check out this video of me rambling about some stuff I read this week. Original Sin #1 takes the third spot this week (I liked issue #0 way more), the debut issue of the creepy serial killer crime thriller Nailbiter takes second, and Rat Queens #6 takes the number one spot for my top pick of the week.
Check out the video below.

Seriously, if you aren&#8217;t reading Rat Queens, you need to handle that business, like, forever ago. Go get the Sass and Sorcery trade paperback for mad cheap to catch up. It collects issues 1-5. I described it as Your Highness meets Girls in the video, but that&#8217;s probably way off. It&#8217;s way more fun than either of those two.
I&#8217;d love to hear what you dudes and dudettes are reading in the comments section. And I mean the REAL comments section of this post, none of that reblog crap where you comment after the blockquotes. Interaction, people!
