Looking for a convention near you? A place to hang out and get your SciFi on in 2011?

So was I. Locus Online has a great resource for just such a situation. So does Wikipedia. But they don’t really give you a sense of where the cons are in relation to you.

DVD REVIEW: Green Lantern – Emerald Knights

Hey you poozers, the latest in the Warner Brothers / DC Animated movies, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, tells five stories from the Green Lantern Corps, the intergalactic police force based on the planet OA, who defend our universe one sector at a time. It features legendary Lanterns like Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Mogo, Abin Sur and Kilowog, this DVD details the history of the Corps, as written in the Book of OA, and told to the Corps newest recruit, Arisia. (This is a review of the single disc DVD edition of Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.)

Krona, OA’s greatest enemy, is reaching out from the Anti-Matter universe, to attack OA and the Corps. Arisia, a new recruit, is understandably nervous.

Diana & Chance Are Out, Hal & Arisia Are In

A lot of DC Comics TV/Movie news that deserves a little attention.

First up: The Wonder Woman pilot was not picked up by NBC. After all the hype and the controversy surrounding the costume, NBC passed on the rebooted series by David E. Kelley. No details were released (that I could find) on why NBC passed, but there doesn’t seem to be a future for the series seeing as how all the other networks passed on the script (saying it was terrible) before NBC ordered a pilot.

So, for now at least, Diana will have to stay on Themyscira.
