Let’s face it, 2017 has already been a pretty good year for movies. Especially for geeks like me! I mean, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, Logan, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and now we have Thor: Ragnarok to look forward to. I know I have told you guys time after time, but I am am a pretty big comic book fan. I have been reading Marvel Comics since I was a little girl – and Thor has always been a favorite of mine. If you don’t know much about Thor and Hulk besides what you have seen in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), I encourage you to pick up these few comics to familiarize yourself with them more.
As you probably know, I was lucky enough to hit the red carpet for the Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 premiere and interview the cast. It immediately became my favorite comic book movie for many reasons. This movie brings the feels, y’all. It is incredibly well done. The cast, the director, the humor, the emotions – all reasons to love it. GotG Vol. 2 is out on digital HD right now, and will hit stores on DVD and Blu-ray on August 22nd. To help celebrate, I threw a movie night under the stars with my family – and I am sharing our fun with you so you can do the same!
You possibly know this already, but I have a huge Funko POP collection. I am a bit of an addict. Pretty much every time I go to the store, I have to get at least one. And don’t even get me started on GameStop and their exclusives. I already practically live at that store because of my gaming addiction (which is not a bad thing). When I leave that store, I usually have at least one video game and one Funko POP in hand. Well now I just learned about the Funko Insider Club that GameStop announced – a way to get FREE Funko POPs & more!
This month I teamed up with Apple Music and Disney Music Group to create a super fun Family Dance Party Playlist! My girls and I are huge Disney fans and we have spent many hours dancing around the house singing our favorite Disney songs. Some of these songs date back to when I was a little girl – and some of them are brand new hits from movies like Cars 3 and Descendants 2!
If you are a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy films, take it from a comic book nerd like me, there are some books you just HAVE to read. If you want some great movie tie-ins and backgrounds on your favorite characters, these are the ones for you. Ideally, I would love to convince you all to go to your local comic book shop or look online and pick up every single issue that any of the Guardians appear in – but that is asking A LOT, I know. So I put together 5 of my favorite comic books (OK, a few are trade paperbacks) that any Marvel Cinematic Universe fan should pick up.
I am so excited to let you all know that I will be heading to Los Angeles from Tuesday, April 18th – Friday, April 21st for another amazing press trip! This one is filled with Marvel, Disney, Disney Nature, and ABC events! Myself and 24 other bloggers will be bringing you exclusive photos, interviews, and more while there so be sure to follow along.
