So it’s that time again where nerds from across the globe rejoice in all that is geek culture. This years comic con was a huge success and maybe proving to be the most exciting and hyped convention to date.

It’s no hidden secret that reboots make money, just a quick glance at how much the superhero reboots like Spiderman and Superman bring in and you can see why it’s ever so popular. Continue reading
