I’m Danni Danger and I host a comic review webseries. I review comics, make pull-list videos, cosplay, and interview comic creators, artists, and authors. My show has one mission, which is to bring comic books to new audiences. I want to show people the real culture and art of comics, and change common misconceptions about comic books as a medium, and about comic book fans. The show is made to be accessible to everyone!

Kelli Nova was birthed under the blazing Texas sun. She was destined to cosplay because, as few people know, cosplay protects your brain from the scorching heat.While still a youngling Kelli Nova was interested everything from Disney princesses to video games. As with most weird people she didn’t begin her journey into the vast and promising world of cosplay until adult hood. Bringing her quirky sense of humor, her persistance and all around craftiness Kelli is showing us her journey from Padawan of cosplay to Master cosplayer. Watch as Kelli shows us how hard, and strangely fulfilling cosplay can be!

Chandler Baker cut her teeth on science fiction & fantasy greats like Lord of the Rings, Foundation and Dune before expanding her list of genre favorites to include contemporary, mysteries, dystopian and, yes, sometimes even romance. As she grew taller, so did her ‘To Be Read’ pile, which now teeters at precarious heights on her nightstand. Chandler has a tendency to be evangelical about great stories and believes that everyone’s a reader, they just need to find ‘their’ book. To this end, Chandler’s firmly anti-book snobbery. These days Chandler can also be found writing. She got her start ghostwriting young adult and middle grade novels, including installments of a book series that has sold more than 1 million copies. Her debut young adult novel, ALIVE is forthcoming from Disney-Hyperion in May 2015 followed shortly by the first book in her new series, HIGH SCHOOL HORROR STORY, to be published by Macmillan in the Fall of 2015 in conjunction with DiGa Vision, LLC.
Call me Ali. I am a professional fangirl and cat lady.
I’m a geologist and political scientist by trade and am therefore ruled by the delightful deity of statistical significance. When I’m not playing with data, I’m likely playing with my cats, running, or pursing my unyielding hunger for books, TV, and movies. My passion for head canon cannot be understated, nor can my commitment to encouraging fan life and nerd culture.
I employ the Oxford comma.
And most importantly: I believe in Sherlock Holmes.
Dylan is a part time adult, and a full time nerd.
Growing up, if she wasn’t reading, she was probably gaming; if she wasn’t gaming, she was likely writing about reading and gaming. So not much has changed from age 5 to 25 really, except that now she’s a little bit taller (emphasis on “a little bit”).
Storytelling has always been her 1st love, so whether it’s a game, a movie, a book, or well done graffiti, if it has a compelling story, Dylan is more than likely hooked. On any given day, she’ll happily discuss game theory and design, review movies or games, dissect the ins and outs of nerd culture, and likely talk way too much for way too long about how awesome it is to be a nerd – no matter what it is that *you* nerd out about.
Dylan also has a particular passion for health and fitness, and is on a quest to find ways to bring active, healthy lifestyles together with gaming and nerd culture so that we may all enjoy everything that we love about our nerdy hobbies and live our lives to the fullest extent!
