The annual Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) is back for another electrifying weekend to satisfy the pop culture cravings of fans in the Southeast Asia. Thankfully, fellow geeks in the region need not travel to far flung New York or San Diego to attend the Cons, yay!
This year STGCC will invigorate the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Marina Bay Sands from 31 August to 1 September 2013. The following would be 2 highlights that Geek Culture thinks would excite fans quite a bit.
Adi is best known for his work in the Iron Man: Extremis comic book series, written by Warren Ellis, and his role as a conceptual designer and illustrator on the Iron Man and the Avengers films with Marvel Studios. In fact, the book that he worked on sparked off the Iron Man blockbuster series. Hollywood director John Favreau not only assigned him as the suit supervisor, but also asked for his help to design all main characters and fight scenes in the first movie.His pens have graced hundreds of cover pages for many of Marvel Comics’ bestselling comic books including X-men, The Avengers, Ultimates, Iron Man, Captain America, and many others.
Vampy Bit Me
Linda Le, or better known as Vampy Bit Me learnt styling in the States and headed to London and Japan to continue her studies. Upon returning to America, she began to teach makeup and dabbled in modeling.
